I don't know if I've introduced myself yet so I am going to do it now. Hi I'm Deborah and I go by Squeaky Scraps. I got the name Squeaky from my grandpa, my mom's dad. When I was first born he said I sounded like a squeaky mouse everytime I cried. He was the only one that has ever called me squeaky and had from the first week I was born until he died in 1989. I decided to name my blog in rememberence of him so Squeaky Scraps it is. I am new to scrapbooking and still learning. I just started in June or July and really haven't gotten that much accomplished. I have done some digital pages, surfed for freebies, searched out forums, learned how to start a blog, read tutorials, learned how to use 4 shared and a few other programs I never heard of before and just really trying to get the feel of everything and how it works. I have a lot of firsts in the past few months. Scrapping isn't that easy you know!! Not for me anyways!!:rolleyes: lol

I am 44 years old and got into genealogy when I was 14 or 15 as a school project and have been addicted ever since. My mom has been bugging me bad about starting my book and getting it done. I was on ancestry.com and they had this new program ancestrypress.com which to me looked like scrapbooking so I decided that was how I wanted to do my Family Tree Book. I started surfing about scrapbooking having no idea that there was any such thing about digital scrapbooking and WoWzer!!! There's everything you can think of out there. But that 's how I got here. I believe this will be my favorite spot because most of you are also into genealogy. I'm usually timid and don't know what to say or write, but ya can't tell can ya!! I've done wrote a book so I'll shut up now!! lol
