    Hi there!

    I live in the Netherlands with my husband and two sons and 2 weird cats!

    Well, off to take a better peek in the forum now!

    Welcome, Maaike! I'm also a former paper scrapper but have been totally digital for about 3.5 years. You're going to love it here -- so much inspiration!

    Hello! I have been a paper scrapper up until now. I am just now making the switch. But I also like to get my hands "dirty" so will probably still paper scrap once in a while. This place ROCKS!!

    Welcome Maaike! I never paper scrapped but since starting digital scrapping I do like to make the occasional hybrid project and dabble in art journaling. 2 weird cats? I'm a cat lover and believe that is just a part of their nature and charm!

    Welcome to DD Maaike! What a fascinating name, I love it! I think it's the spelling that makes it different, I have seen it with just one "a" or an "e".... anyway, it's great to have you here, can't wait to see your pages!

    Wow, I shure do feel right at home! What a warm welcome! So good to read there are more former paper scrappers here and weird cat lovers!hahaha
    And Anke, are you dutch too?? Anke shure is a dutch name!
    In Germany some woman are called Maike with one a and some in Holland are written as Meike. But my version is the most common here I think!

    I hope to make some pages to put into the gallery soon! I have so little hours in one day and so much to do!

    Hi!

    Welcome... from another newbie!

    (Wow... the Netherlands... not very far from Belgium, but I don't go there often enough... and... loving your nickname, it reminds me of a character of a great novel I read a few years ago... "Ontaarde Moeders" door Renate Dorrestein...) Well, anyway, I hope you will have a great time on the forum and in this community!

    Welcome! I am a former paper scrapper as well. In fact, I turned digi by accident when I stumbled across some classes in photoshop and had so much fun that I never went back! We're glad that you're here and really to look to getting to know you and seeing your work!
