Meet Emily!!

My name is Emily, Em for short. I am 29 and live in beautiful Colorado with my wonderful boyfriend. I don't have any children, but we have his 7 yo son every other weekend, who gives me plenty of photo opportunities. When I am not scrapping, during the winter months I am completely devoted to hockey and lacrosse, two things which are often the subjects of my LOs. I also love hiking, reading, chocolate, and going to concerts with friends.
I've been scrapbooking since 2002 and have pretty much been hooked since day one. I have found my style changing since I started and I am comfortable where it has ended up. I like the fact that I can go from using 12 photos to 1 photo, no patterned paper to 5-6 papers, 1 page or 2. Pretty much whatever the LO calls for! My scrap subjects include holidays and events, vacations, sports, nature, Munchkin (my Bf's 7 year old son), my parent's dogs, and everyday objects. I am also working on a BOM, which has proven to be my biggest challenge so far! For me, scrapping is my getaway, my escape into creativity. Much cheaper than therapy, and 100 times more enjoyable! I am excited to be a part of the design team for Scrap The Moments and look forward to sharing my LOs with you!
We are looking forward to your creations! Here is what Emily created for the challenge!

Love how she used the flyer and ticket stub! Make sure to get your entries in! Be back soon with more!

Meet our DT...starting with Savanna!

Hi Ya'll....this is Savanna from Sweet Home Alabama and I am so excited to be a part of Scrap the Moments design team.  I live with my sweet hubby David of 8 years and our 5 furry cat babies.
    My obsession with scrapbooking started right after I got married,  to do a wedding album and the need/want kind of exploded after  that.  I love how scrapbooking tells the story of our lives through         the moments we capture in pictures.  I love all things about scrapping, the paper, stickers, embellies, but most of all I  love the wonderful friendships that I have made. 
    When I am not scrapping or working-which I do to support the  habit ;) - I am usually in search of some photo op's with the family or with my nose in a good book!!
Yay for Savanna! I can't wait to see all the great designs she comes up with for our challenge! Be back later to introduce the rest of the DT members! Happy Monday everybody!
