My name is Cyndi and I live in St. Paul, MN. I started scrapping in earnest about 5 years ago and am totally addicted. I started out doing 8.5x11 but switched to 12x12 and could never go back now. I tried my hand at digital scrapping, but I didn't find it as satisfying as playing with real supplies, so I went back to paper. The majority of my layouts are about my six nephews and one niece, but I have started making some about myself which I have to admit has been kind of fun...and therapy at times. I love bright patterns and bold colors....but nothing with birds on it because birds give me the creeps :-) TFL!!!
