All about Mary Pat!

Hi everyone,
My name is Mary Pat and I am a wife to a fantastic husband (does anyone say they are married to someone terrible?).  One of the many reasons I love him is that he totally supports my "need" to scrap.  He is more than happy to help out around the house if I need to get some work done!  You got to love that!  I have two great boys (Jack 5 and Michael 2).  They are the light of my life.  I never thought raising two boys would be so much fun!  I am a high school Spanish teacher.  This is my 22nd year.  Where does the time go?  It seems like this is my 10th year instead. 
I have been a crafter ever since i was  a little girl.  I loved all kinds of crafts and projects.  It wasn't until college (in the late 80's) that I started to scrap, but of course there weren't any real scrapping products back then.  But I would always buy stickers and decorate my photo albums and write in journaling.  I loved it.  All my friends always wanted me to do their albums.  I was so excited when Creating Keepsakes came about and the hobby "officially" took off.  I am so totally addicted. I love pattern paper, and my tools. I must confess I am a pattern paper junkie.  My favorite lines right now are Basic Grey and Imaginisce, but there are so many great ones too. I carry around my sketch pad in my purse so that if I get a great idea I can write it down right away.  I have even had ideas come in my dreams.  I know it sounds really really weird but like I said I am totally addicted. 
I am currently on my local scrapbook store's Design Team, and I just love it. We have a lot of fun.  My son, Jack loves going in the store and find his pictures! He thinks he is famous.  How cute is that?  I am really excited to be on this Scrap the Moments Design Team.  I am a huge fan of challenge sites.  They really motivate me.  My goal is to motivate and inspire you.  Please feel free to visit my blog [url=]siehledwithakiss[/url] and I would be honored if you signed up to follow me.  On my blog I usually go into more detail on how I created the layout etc.
I want to thank Devon for giving my this great opportunity.  I can't wait to get started!  Thanks for reading!
Check out how Mary Pat used her baseball game tickets for this challenge!
