My craft supply 'must have': white cardstock
 

What inspires me to create: the everyday moments in our life!
 

Most readers don’t know this about me: I love to use gold on my layouts but you wont catch me wearing gold clothing or jewelry—EVER
 

BIO: 15 yrs ago a close friend opened up a LSS--the rest is history..HA! Over the last 15 years I've been on several DT's, taught many classes and was published numerous times, but I decided to take my scrapping in a different direction and scrap for ME. I get so much more joy out of it that way. I even struggle with the confines of challenges because of this sometimes.

I am married to the love of my life. We have 4 children (3 of which are out of the house now) and our youngest who just started high school....AND the subject of A LOT of my most recent layouts...our almost 2 year old grandson. (sigh!) It has been a great obstacle to scrap little boy things since I have scrapped girls for so many years!

 

 

 


Project #1: Homecoming Spirit

I knew I wanted to scrap my youngest daughter’s first high school homecoming. We are new to the whole spectacle that this event is in Texas and didn't go overboard, but knew I wanted to do a layout that was feminine yet had a football feel. I think I succeeded with this mix of new and older products.

Project #2: Adventure

One of my favorite photos from a vacation to Colorado we took this summer. My husband was so good taking our grandson out (on) adventure walks to see things he might not normally get to see.

Project #3: Slider

The first time I saw these planner decals in the store, I knew that they would be perfect on a layout!!! And guess what?? They were!

Project #4: Colorado Sunrise

Gorgeous sunrise while on vacation in Colorado…

Project #5: Little Moments

I knew I had to scrap this photo my middle daughter sent me from her first day of her teaching practicum. She looks so happy and excited! Two layouts I did with the (Turn the Page) Pink Paislee line--I wanted to show the versatility of the line by doing two completely different layouts with two different color base/themes.

My craft supply 'must have':   Adhesive

 


What inspires me to create:   ACOT challenges, Pinterest



Most readers don’t know this about me:   I Scrapbook on my bed. Yep, I make all my pages on my bed. I used to haul everything back and forth to the dining room table. Now, all of my scrappy supplies are within arm's reach and I don't have to run back and forth. This also forces me to clean up after Scrapping.

Bio:  I was inspired to start Scrapping in 2005 while my husband was deployed. His friend was posting a log of pictures from the deployment and I felt like those needed to be documented. I quit Scrapping in 2010 because we moved to a small house and I became pregnant with my 3rd (so, I had 3 kids under 5 years old at that time). We moved to a bigger house last year so I have room to scrap now. I was out of the scrapbooking loop for years so I'm catching up on things like pastes, painting, stenciling, misting, etc.

I have been married for 12 years to my hubs, Kevin. We have three children, Jacen (11), Kylie (8) and Logan (almost 6). We recently became pet owners last July. My daughter had been begging for a dog for her birthday. I found Blue (AKA Mr. Pickles) online. He was a homeless doggie, now he's not. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 6 years. I am open to going back to work one day.
