Short bio:
My name is Katie Rose. I live in a small town on the coast of New Hampshire with my husband and our 3 kids – two boys ages 15 and 12 and a little girl who is 7. I’ve been scrapbooking for about 12 years, although I grew up making collages with pictures and stickers so I feel like I have been doing it in some way most of my life! When I am not scrapbooking I own and run a childcare center with my sister for 120 kids. I also
am addicted to instagram and pinterest and watch far too much reality TV.

How did you get started scrapbooking?
I started scrapbooking back in September 2011when I got an invite to a scrapbooking party. I've been hooked ever since. It started as getting together with friends at crops every couple of months to now something I do almost every day.

What is your favorite American Crafts product?
I'd have to say Thickers. I probably use them on almost every layout I do!
