My Inspiration

My passion for scrapbooking and paper crafts all started three years ago. My beautiful and very talented niece Melissa introduced me to Stampin"Up! At the time it all seemed very overwhelming. What I needed was inspiration!

You see, three years ago I lost my Mom very suddenly. I had the task of going through her boxes and boxes of pictures. I needed to find a way to preserve the many memories. So I started to scrapbook and found a true passion. It was also very therapeutic. Scrapbooking and Stampin'Up helped me to deal with my loss.
Thanks for the inspiration Mom.

And now, as a Stampin'Up Demonstrator, I am able to share that passion with you.
