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. Thanks to PixelScrapper, I have honed my design skills and do some small design jobs for hire, along with my regular editing and writing. 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. I also teach water aerobics at our local Women's Club. (Otherwise, I might sit on the couch all day designing!). Besides a passion for photography, I love sports, flyfishing, cardmaking, gardening, and walking. My goal is to try to learn a new technique or enhance existing ones every month so I can give back to this wonderful community of scrapbookers through the PS blog trains.

Just about every Father's Day we all go fishing because my husband is an avid flyfisherman. I try to be, but just beat the waters to a foamy froth on most days. Our youngest daughter loves to flyfish and is good at it. Our oldest, pictured here, can take or leave it--mostly does it to please dad, even though she is more the avid outdoors-woman of the two girls. This page is for the April 2014 LO challenge using a pie chart. I would have never used that concept for this layout, so it was fun to do! I used parts of three different kits for this LO: The Simple Life, by Meagan's Creations--meaganswordart.blogspot.com; Scraps-n-Pieces.com's Hook, Line & Sinker kit, and elements from two kits by Karen Diamond Designs--Nature's Beauty and Fishing Tales Graffiti, also through the SNP store. I made the pie chart myself with a circle, then cut it into its three pieces using the polygonal lasso tool, then /moving/ copying/pasting onto separate layers. Voila, a template.
