Welcome Back!

Here's welcoming myself back to the blogging world!

I started my first blog in 2004 to document my wedding preps. However, after becoming a mom in 2008 and my little one became my 24/7, I decided to delete my first blog since I was unable to post updates for several months.

Enter 2010 and I'm not only back to blogging (finally! after several friends insisted that I blog again), I'm also back to my other "love"... SCRAPBOOKING!!!

There's a blog hop going on at My Little Shoebox and coincidentally, I just created a layout using MLS papers using their "Away We Go" line! Haven't taken a photo of it yet, so I'll just update this post in a while.
