I have been scrapbooking for about
10 years. I have always been “crafty”, and have tried just about every type
of craft on the planet. But nothing held my attention for long --- until I
discovered scrapbooking, which coincidentally happened the very day I found
out I was expecting my first child! The timing was perfect and I was hooked
on scrapbooking from the very start!
I have been happily married for 13
years to my husband Rob, who is a civil service program manager for the Air
Force. He is very supportive of my scrapbook “addiction”! We have 2
children, both boys - so I’m outnumbered. My oldest, Drew is 9 and is in
fourth grade. Christopher, my baby, who will tell you he ISN’T a baby
anymore, will be starting Kindergarten next year. Both boys enjoy bowling,
miniature golf and trips to the amusement park.

crazy about the Black and White Basics and the Stripestock lines!)
Color is my biggest inspiration.
My designs always begin with color; it sets the mood for the project. My
photographs usually inspire my color palette, but occasionally, I print my
photos in black and white so I can experiment with a certain set of colors!
