My Layouts

Styles & Techniques:
My goal is to create layouts that make you stop and take a longer look. I love to use unqiue color combinations, inspiring product and creative designs to create layouts that are both interesting and easy on the eye. I enjoy incorporating emotional photography and personal journaling to tell my family's story. I believe telling the story behind the photos is of most important goal of memory preservation ... but great product never hurt anyone. ;)

About me:
I have been scrapbooking in some form or another since the mid-80's. I have been submitting my work since the beginning of 2005.  I delight in creating pages about a broad range of subjects and am consistently pushing myself to come up with fun designs and meaningful layouts. I look forward to developing lasting relationships within the scrapbook industry, both professionally and casually. Scrapbooking is my passion and I wouldn't have it any other way.
