    Default Hello from Minnesota, USA

    Hi, my name is Sandy. I grew up an Air Force brat mostly in the midwest, but went to 7 different elementary schools. I married an Air Force guy and a few years ago we finally left military life and beautiful Las Vegas to settle down as close to family as we could get, and ended up in Northern Minnesota, only a 8 hour drive from "home". When I'm not scrapbooking (that happens?!?) I am a SAHM to two boys, 13 & 9, and blushing bride to my dear Hubs of 7 years. And a Pinterest and Ancestory.com addict. We're a house full of animal lovers with 3 cats and 1 really large dog, who oddly enough thinks he's a cat, a 125 pound cat!

    I have been scrapbooking for what seems like forever, mostly collecting memorabilia and paper scrap supplies, but I have paper commitment issues so I didn't get many pages done. (I have the same problem with yarn/fabric and planning the projects/quilts I will "make" with them.) I found digi scrap a few years ago and found I could use the graphics manipulation skills I'd learned working as an engraver in an awards, trophy and framing shop to create fun 3-d projects and cards with digital designs I could reuse again and again. (My favorite part!) After some encouragement from a couple of designers I CT for, I started selling my hybrid designs and 12x12 templates a few months ago at Zig Zag Scraps but after its unexpected closing Ginger was kind enough to offer me a spot here and so here I am.

    I'm so excited to be here. And I'm more than a little embarrassed I haven't stopped in to say hi earlier. Our basement had some flooding a few months ago when our town got 9" of rain in a matter of a few hours and our little sump pump just couldn't keep up. So we've been working on gutting the basement and redoing to make a master bedroom "suite" and I'm not sure I had any idea how much work it would be. (HGTV makes it look so easy.) And before we get a freak snowstorm we've been trying to get as much done on the outside parts as we can.

    I look forward to meeting you all, I definitely need a new "digihome" and GS looks like a great place to hang out. I've been cruising the galleries and there are some fantastic hybrid projects and layouts in there!!! I'm going to be doing a hybrid CT call soon so if anyone is interested, take a swing through my shop and get your applications ready!! (or heck, pm me now let me know you're interested.)
