 A little about me and my objective:
I have always found photography and scrapbooking to go hand in hand. I received my first camera at the age of 9, and those first pictures found their way into a scrapbook where I could write my thoughts and combine a bit of doodling to go along with the story.

And I haven't quit...

Over 25 years later I've been published by Stampers Sampler, Scrapbook Trends, Legacy, Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, and several other special issues. In both 2005 and 2006 I also earned an honorable mention in Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame contest.

Besides scrapbooking I can also be found stamping. I was a demonstrator for Close to my Heart for 6 years, and am currently on the Technique Tuesday Design Team. I've also taught classes at the local scrapbook store, where I was delighted to learn that I love teaching.

I'm excited to see where this journey in scrapbooking will take me.  I've been very fortunate in the opportunities I've had so far....and I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store. 


Styles & Techniques:
I consider my style to be very crisp, clean....neat.  I enjoy playing with new techniques, products and color combinations...and enjoy a range of single page layouts, to event layouts, to very simple...and to a little more involved.  I enjoy the range, but in the end....I keep it true to my style.
