Short bio: Hello! My name is Christine Newman and I'm known in the scrapbooking world as "listgirl". I love to tell my life stories with photos and pretty papers. I live in Southern California with my husband Todd and our cat Noodle. I work full-time as a financial analyst for a high-tech company. I love to eat, which means I try to workout as often as possible to offset my intake. I also love to read, knit/crochet, make cards, stamp, sew, and get my hands into anything crafty! I started scrapbooking in 2008 as a way to do something with all the photos accumulating on my computer. My favorite AC product is definitely patterned papers. Although die cuts are a close second!
