Short bio: I am working as a stay at home mom to my two wonderful kiddos who are 5 and 3. We live just outside of Syracuse, NY, and spend a LOT of time outdoors and exploring all the different activities for each season. When I'm not scrapping, I love to quilt, watch TV and movies (can't wait for The Walking Dead!), and bake. I also own an online scrapbook store called My Scraps & More which helps fulfill all my scrappy desires!
 
How did you get started scrapbooking? I have always kept memorablila and photo albums, but it wasn't until about 2006 that I really started getting into "serious" scrapbooking and discovered the online world, which totally opened my eyes. We moved to Houston and didn't know anyone there at first, and while my husband worked nights, I would scrap away!
 
What is your favorite American Crafts product? The ephemera die cut packs. I love popping them off my pages, or tucking them under my photos. They just add that little extra that's needed for my pages!

When doing a page in under 30 minutes, a simple grid design is easy to lay out. I just embellished around the edges with some die cut pieces.

KEYCHAIN by Audrey Yeager

To make this keychain I simply covered the backs of the wood veneer pieces with paper, added a layer of mod podge, and then punched a hole when dry.
