My Resume

I am a mother to 4 adventurous children and a proud Navy wife. We currently live in Washington state but I am originally from Illinois. I started scrapbooking when I had my first child in a way to keep our families up to date with the everyday things our children do. It has been 19 years now and I am still hooked. I love to scrap the everyday adventures along with the usual family and holiday events. When I'm not scrapbooking I am making cards and teaching card classes at my local scrapbook store 2-3 times a month.
