Shannon M.
Short bio:
My name is Shannon Morgan. I am a Great Lakes nerd girl inhabiting the South. I am a wife to Karl (who is ah-mazing), Momma Girl to Paddy, Mack, Cinna, and Meg, daughter to some great parents, and a quirky (good quirks) girl who likes to make her friends smile. I love creating, being caffeinated, reading, cartoons, animals, music, and tattoos. I love being able to share creativity with others. I also love the friendships I have found through the world of scrapbooking. Scrapbooking is a pretty much daily activity in my house and I'm lucky to have a great family who supports me. If I am not by chance scrapbooking, I can be found playing ridiculously loud music in the carline or walking with my family, probably complaining along the way about how hot it is!

How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking, just like everyone else, when my son was born. I started out making calendars for the grandparents. It morphed into the scrap supply hoarding, excessive picture taking, Pinterest scrap pin obsessed person before you!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? My favorite American Crafts product, surprisingly, is the precision writers. I have been using them for years and they are my favorite pens. I use them on everything. They are great for writing on photos, embellishments, doodling, and outlining.

HELLO LOVE by Shannon Morgan

These pictures are so great, they captured a simple day at the zoo. I feel like they captured so much more, the more candid shots reflect that.

Trying to capture each moment is pretty impossible. This layout reflects that, I'm bittersweet over the kids starting back to school. I'm so happy for them to grow and conquer the world, but I miss them. We have a French Toast Traditio – each year the night before school starts, I make all of their favorite breakfast picks!
