It's been a year!!!!!

Tomorrow is my "card-making" first anniversary!!!!
I uploaded my first card in my computer a year ago!
Waow!! It seems like a lifetime ago! I can't believe what an incredible year it has been for me, discovering all kind of tools and techniques!!
I still remember how impressed I was the first time I saw the resist technique used on one of Erika's cards, or how excited my friend Sandrine and I were the first time we used embossing powder and a heating gun! Let's not forget the discovery of the Cuttlebug and it's wonderful embossing folders...♥ (Yes, embossing is probably my favorite thing to do with paper, it's magical to me.) And the brads, the eyelets, the ribbons... *happy sigh* :-)
Sometimes I just sit at my desk and open my drawers and look at all my little treasures, or go through my patterned papers... and it makes me happy!

So, it's been quite a year, and not just because of paper and colors and finding a new way to express myself. Looking back there were signs, in my photo albums, or my kids birth announcements, that papercrafting was right there, waiting to find a way out.... ;-)
But it also has been an incredible year because of the people I "met" who share this passion. A year ago I had no clue this "paper-crafting world" even existed and now I feel like I have this wonderful net of women who inspire me in so many ways! :-)

I just want to thank all of you, who have made this such an exciting experience!! I am not done learning and discovering, it's only the beginning!...
And I am looking forward to many many more years sharing that passion with all of you and getting to know you better! :-)

Bon anniversaire ! J'ai été enchantée de passer cette année de scrapbooking avec toi, et espère bien continuer encore longtemps, même si désormais ce sera par mail ou tél.
Bisous et à bientôt pour nos nouvelles aventures de scrapeuses.
