Bio: My name is Sarah Andreotti and I live in a fun mid-Michigan town where my husband of 10 years and I raise our 7 year old daughter and 2 year old son. I love summertime and sunshine, Detroit Tiger baseball, photography, reading, and all-around general craftiness. 🙂

How did you start scrapbooking?
I started when my daughter was about 6 months old in 2007 and my sister was moving to the Virgin Islands. I was sad she was going to miss my daughter growing up, so I made her a scrapbook of photos of her through the year for Christmas, and then I was hooked. My little box of supplies quickly grew, I found an online community where I made friends that loved scrapbooking as much as me, met some local friends through that same online community, and I have been loving papercrafting ever since!

What is your favorite American Crafts product?
I have a serious love for the POW! glitter papers! My favorite is the silver chevron from the Amy Tangerine Yes Please line. I used every last little scrap of that paper. It is so shiny and awesome and cuts absolutely perfectly in my Cameo!
