Welcome to my Blog!

WELCOME to my blog. My intent is to bring to you any new and exciting tips, tools, techniques and design ideas I come across or create. 

But first let me tell you a little about myself. I am a wife, mother and grandmother and I am newly retired. 
Many years ago I did scrapbooking and we are talking about the time when the wonderful papers, tools and embellishments Did Not exist. Back in the day you had these books of blank newspaper print paper and you would attach your pictures, ticket stubs, and any type of memorabilia. Rather boring but exciting enough for a child  (10-14 years old).  Now lets fast-forward to 2008 when my mother passed away and I was felling extremely depressed and alone. I happened to stop in a little scrapbooking store and met a warm, friendly, caring woman, Julie Huddleston. She is the owner of Scrapbook Café in La Puente, Ca. We talked for a while and she suggested that I take her beginners class and get acquainted with all the fantastic stuff for scrapbooking. OMG, I was hooked !!!! I started with layouts and then discovered Mini Albums!!!!  I started creating mini albums to show off the newest paper line at the store. Then, with a little prodding from Julie, customers and my daughter I started offering the Mini Albums as classes at the store.
As life progresses, so must I.  So once again, getting prodded by the daughter and son-in-law, I decided to start a blog.

I hope you find my tips, techniques, tutorials, etc. fun, exciting and informative.
