Welcome to the (mostly sane) ramblings of my life. It's a little bit about scrapbooking, a little bit about stamping, a little bit about my family, a little bit about going to school.

Latest scrapbook pages - 5K Grad
I've tried four times today to post these to my gallery on Splitcoaststampers. After typing it all in (I wasn't smart enough to cut & paste), it went through the entire process and then defaulted back to the "upload new pictures" page. Durn.
I really like the way this turned out. I started out doing the SBSC163. I was very intrigued by it, but I didn't know how to accomplish that chain thing in the middle. I reproduced the shape using the sizes of chipboard flowers. You could recognize that shape better before I put the DSP under it, but it was missing something. I found another challenge, faux sheers (SBVVC49) and incorporated that as well. I was able to use a lot of supplies I've been hoarding in my stash for years!

I'm the mother of two girls, ages 7 and 3. I teach middle school English and Reading. I am currently writing my dissertation for a doctorate in Educational Leadership.
I started out thinking that people who scrapbooked needed to find a real job. There are hospitals all over the country that need volunteers. Then I went once and was addicted! I couldn't get enough of the creativity and fun. It was so relaxing and stress-relieving. But I was *only* a scrapper. Stamping was for people who needed a real job There are hospitals ...
Anyway, I was invited to visit a Stampin' Up scrapbook club one weekend. I immediately fell in love! Long story short ... I am now a SU demonstrator, but I started out with only 2 customers (my mother and myself) and two others that occasionally ordered. I occasionally hold monthly card classes and usually have about six regular attendees. It's fun and they love making a variety of cards each month.
