About Me

I love scrapbooking. I have five children (3 grown daughters, a son who was killed when he was 7 and one 16 year old daughter at home) I also have five grandsons and another due September 17. Oh yeah and a DH of 37 years. I work as a reporter for a small weekly paper and started a new career as a truent officer in November. However, I spend most of my waking hours devoting myself to Em and her is her life so it has become my life.
I think I love scrapbooking because I love to shop! I am willing to try about anything once. I use 12 X 12 pages. Love colors.....bright, muted....all. I am always working on my daughter's dance book and one for Girl Scouts. We travel lots. I love most embellishments. Some of my pages are very lumpy. I love animals and have a dog. I love brads and Jolee's and Paper Bliss and anything scrapbooking!
I have started using metals and love them. Use charms, ribbon, chalk, have done a little embossing but want to do more.
I love brads and eyelets. I also love overlays!
