My wonderfully creative, talented, sweet and fun scrapping family is turning one! I was so surprised to get the news that I quickly noted the ff.:
1. Do you still have the very first invites that Marix and Abby sent?
2. Can you still remember what we did the first time we met?
3. How many layouts you've done since then?
Unfortunately, I wasn't there from the very beginning. But as they say, better late than never. =D So in commemoration of this event I'm remembering what I did those very first weeks that I joined. This was the first ever e-mail I got from Marix (after Sookie added me to the yahoo groupmail):

And the first challenge I ever entered was Challenge # 7 - Happy Birthday, which was hosted by Cecel. I did "8 months" which I thought was cute. Hee hee. And best of all, I won most elaborate LO! Which totally made my week! =D
7 months and 16 layouts later I'm scrapping strong (if not often) after being inspired, time and again, by the wonderful people of Scrappersatsg. I was supposed to join them during the November (Trick or Treat) scrapmeet. I made ATCs for my "monster" (Marix) and was all set to go, but I had work scheduled for that weekend and sadly I didn't get to meet the girls. Same thing happened for the December scrapmeet (where I even bought food!). Funny thing is, my hubby (Jerome) was able to meet Abby and the rest (briefly perhaps) that December because I asked him to deliver the food in my stead.
Fortunately this year, our first ever meet for 2008 saw me at Chiltern Park and I finally met the girls. =D I can't believe I spent almost 12 hours with Abby, Andros, Benga, Beth, CJ, Lily, and Sookie chatting and scrapping the day away. I'm usually shy (though not obvious, hehe) but I found them easy to get along with and a total riot. =)
Here's wishing Scrappersatsg more fun-filled and artistic years to come.
