With Scrap365, you will discover a varied and eclectic approach covering all aspects of scrapbooking, including journaling, digi scrapping, photography, even storage ideas! And as you might have guessed.... yours truly has an article in the inaugural issue! I won't spill the beans completely, but my project just *might* have a bit of glue involved. ;) You can get all the details of the blog hop on the Scrap365 Blog if you'd like to see more peeks.

For those of you new to my website, let me tell you a little about myself. I am originally from the northeastern part of the US (eastern Pennsylvania to be specific), and am now living "down south" with my hubby, 12-year-old daughter and 10-year old son. I'm a vintage-loving gal! My scrapbooking style varies based on the subject of my scrapbooks, but for the most part, I love shabby chic, vintage, and grungy looks. One of my favorite project that I have been working on throughout the year is my gluebook pages (there's a little sneaky peek above). I work on my gluebook whenever I am waiting in line in my car.... for the kids to get out of school, finish piano lessons, finish sports practices.... you get the idea. I cart it all around in a vintage train case that is packed with scraps of patterned papers, clip art, photos, and unused stamped images. I am currently a designer for Craft Stamper Magazine, Rogue Redhead Designs rubber stamp company, and Gingersnap Creations challenge blog.
I will leave you with a few of my scrapping endeavors from previous posts, as well as this peek from the mag (which you can also see a bit of in the announcement photo above)......
