Let’s learn a little about our newest Team members!
Tell us about you and your family.
I am married for 26 years to my husband John. We have three children and two granddaughters with a grandson due at the end of November. I live in east central Florida.
What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?
Paint Shop Pro X9 & Photoshop Elements 12
Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?
I saw the call and have been interested in the classes offered since one of the ladies I’m on a creative team for shared that she was going to be offering a Champions class. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get involved while improving my scrapbook skills and encouraging and helping others with theirs.
How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?
I started in 2007 when my daughter was turning 16. I wanted to create something special for her and thought that creating a scrapbook with a new program I had bought would be the perfect gift. I had no idea digital scrapbooking was a thing until I looked up tutorials for making things for the book and found several communities and stores in the process. Needless to say I was hooked.
What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why?
This one is my favorite layout (two page layout) because the birth of my granddaughter was like a rainbow after a storm. She was born just a little over a year after my son was killed in a car crash. The time after he died was very dark for me and while she did not take away the pain of missing him, she did bring a light to everyone’s life which helps me to keep going everyday.
What is something we may not know about you?
Most people are surprised when they find out I do not like chocolate or coffee.
