I'm Shawna and I've been scrapbooking for about 8 years, give or take. I live in NY with my wonderful husband, our sweet and spunky 4-going-on-14 year-old daughter, her big "fur-brother", and our sketchy kitty.
I took a few years off after the birth of my daughter but dove back in head first this past spring. I love how the hobby has morphed from simple photo memory books to such a diverse and widespread art form incorporating so much more than paper and photos. I love working with color and texture and you will often find lots of both on my layouts. I think it's important to include ourselves in our scrapbooks so that those who will be looking at these books in generations to come can know the person behind the camera. We scrapbook to tell our stories, and we are most certainly part of our own stories.
