Short bio: I am a SAHM of four, ages 7-14. Married to my high school sweetheart for what will be 20 years this summer. We live in the great city of Portland, Oregon. We also spend a lot of time in central Oregon where we do quite a bit of hiking and boating. Prior to my current "job" I was a registered nurse for 13 years. My other two passions are watercolor painting and tennis.

How did you get started scrapbooking? I was on a lunch break at work and someone had left a Creating Keepsakes magazine in the break room. I devoured from front to back and was immediately hooked. Finding the whole online world of scrapbooking is then what really sealed the deal for me!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? My current fave is the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection. I found it super easy to work with and I was immediately drawn to the colors.
