My primary objective is to HAVE FUN! I love to play with every form of scrapbooking! Not just making layouts, but in specific projects like mini albums, album covers, cards, purses and other forms of paper art. I believe that if I truly love a product that I find it easy to create with it!
Styles and Techniques:
Defining a style is very hard for a scapbooker to do. That is why I cal myself an "Eclectic" Scrapbooker. In reality though I do whatever I want to do. I feel that there are no rules to scrapbooking and I complete each project that I work on with my own imagination. I love paint, I love ribbons, I love chipboard, I love glitter. I guess you could say that I love it all.

Rusty Pickle Newsletter Guess Designer May 2006
Album Project Title: Ten Reasons I Love Being Your Mom.
I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for the Rusty Pickle Newsletter for the Month of May and was asked to create a project of my choice that could be connected with Mother's Day. I came up with the title of my Album, "Ten Reasons I Love Being Your Mom". This is an album that I had always wanted to do complete, and being asked to be the Guest Designer gave me the little shove that I needed to get it completed.
