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.
Inspiration for this page came from a few things...because...snow days rock more for some than others, eh? Such as: 1) My friends and family in Ohio are buried in snow and sub-zero temps, while here in Montana we are praying for snowpack in the mountains to get us through the summer without raging wildfires. 2) I just read a blog from a childhood friend about snow days, and how it was always fun as a kid, but now that we're moms, they're not quite as fun as we remembered them to be, and 3) I took photos of our Christmas decorations this year partly because I wanted to document them, and partly because I got a new camera lens for Christmas and was testing it out. My snowman & woman were perfect for this layout. So... I made a page that incorporated my family and friends' misery with the cold and snow and a photo of one of my long-time Christmas decos given to me by a friend probably 25 years ago. I used elements from Andene Sailors Winter Wonderland kit from the Dec. 2013 blog train. Snowflake in the title text is from the WW blog train kit by Cajundivascraps. Font is called snowcaps and was downloaded from the internet. Photo can also be pulled out and used as a FB banner photo. If anyone wants to use it, message me and I'll send it. :-0)
