Hi everyone!-Christina's intro

 Hi everyone!

I am so excited to have been chosen to be on the Scraphappy Design Team. Today is my day to give you a bit of an introduction about me.

I have been scrapping and stamping officially for about 13 years. Unofficially, I have tons of memory type books from my school days, with paper clippings and other keepsakes.  Like a bunch of others, I started out early on with the Creative Memories way of scrapping.  So my first pages are tons of pictures cut into cute shapes like triangles and circles and embellished with pretty construction paper cut with decorative scissors.  Good thing I found early into my scrapping foray the Creating Keepsakes magazine.  That magazine lead me to a whole different way of scrapping. =)
I am now a stamper and a scrapbooker and I have even moved into the world of digital scrapbooking too.  I really enjoy doing digital, because I don’t have to make such a mess, but I don’t think I will give up the paper scrapping either.  There is just something about all the fun papers and embellishments! Oh and all the stamping stuff, I get to do that with my mother in law who is a die hard Stampin’ Up woman.
I don’t have a particularly favorite designer or company that I favor.  I love bright fun designs that make pretty girly layouts; I think that probably comes from having three very girly daughters.  Lately, I have been looking at the vintage girly (what a description) look, but I have yet to try any of those techniques.

Now a little bit about me.  I was born and raised in Mobile, AL.  In August of 1997 I met my soon to be husband on the internet.  We met in person in October, we were engaged the following June and married in December of 1998.  So this December, we will be married 13 years.  Here’s a layout I did of us.  This shot was taken a couple of years ago when we went to see Tim McGraw at The Wharf.  Aren’t we so cute together =)

We enjoyed being newlyweds for a few years but in December 2001 we had our first daughter Jordan.  We had fun with just the three of us for a while, but then in March 2006, we had another daughter, Emery and then much to our surprise, 18 months later we had another daughter Leah.   They are such sweet girls.
Jordan 10
Emery 5
Leah 4 (in October)
Here’s a layout of my girls all together on Valentines Day of this year:

Let’s see what else can I tell you about me….????
Our family is huge Auburn fans. I am not so much of a football watcher, but I will watch it with my husband.  I usually have no choice anyways, cause during football season, that’s ALL that’s on at my house.

I am an avid reader.  I love The Harry Potter and Twilight series (can’t wait for the next movie).  But I read a lot of Romance novels.

Finally I am a huge huge huge  New Kids on the Block fan (shhhh don’t laugh it’s my guilty pleasure)
Here’s a layout I did for a concert I went to recently:

 And just for fun, here are a couple of cards I've done:

Again I want to let you all know how excited I am to be on the design team.  I look forward to having lots of fun and learning lots of stuff from the rest of this great team.
Scrap Pink is coming…see you there!
