I'm a freelance editor, writer and photographer. I picked up cardmaking as an art hobby more than 25 years ago. That led to scrapbooking, but really took off when digital scrapbooking software started popping up on the market. It dovetailed well with my career and has sparked an interest in developing skills as a graphic designer. You all are so talented; you inspire me! I live in the beautiful state of Montana where I work from home and volunteer for a local non-profit called the Dylan Steigers Concussion Project. Besides a passion for photography, I love sports, flyfishing, cardmaking, gardening, and walking my favorite beagle. My goal is to become better at making digital content rather than using what others have created so I can give back to this wonderful community of scrapbookers.
Eight years ago, I saw the paragraph I included here in a merchandise catalog selling dog beds. I emailed catalog publisher, Orvis, asking permission to use Paul Fersen's words in a scrapbook someday because it touched my heart. Someday came Oct. 23, 2013, when we had to euthanize our family pet, Augie, who suffered from cancer. I think Mr. Fersen captured the essence of why we dog lovers bring animals into our families, even though it is heart-wrenching to say goodbye. Dog word graphic was a freebie from Creative Memories, text by Paul Fersen, and photo mask from CottageArts.net. Love by our family. This photo was taken of Augie during a swim in Montana's Clark Fork River--his favorite thing in the world to do. For all you lovers of dogs, I'm sure you can relate to the words here.
