http://aocreations.blogspot.com/

Hi, my name is Amy.  I am a stay at home mother to three amazing children.  My daughter is 18 and my two boys are 16 and 13, they keep me full of life and very busy at times. We live in Georgetown, Texas which is right outside of Austin, TX.  After growing up in a military family it is nice to stay in one place for awhile.  I love to travel and of course craft.  I started scrapbooking 16 years ago and have been making cards for 7, I love both but right now card making is my favorite.  My style is more CAS then anything but I love trying new techniques and of course learning all styles. I'm very excited to be part of the team!!!

Hi there! I am a resident of Winchester, Virginia. I was raised in West Virginia and lived there until about 25 years ago when I moved to Virginia. I am a country girl through and through. My passionate hobbies are scrapbooking, making cards, mini albums (ok anything paper crafting hehe), hiking, camping, fishing, gardening and cooking. I have one grown son, 24, and my boyfriend and I are raising his 12 year old son. I work full time for a dairy company. I became a Stampin Up Demonstrator in 2013 to help feed my papercrafting addiction and have loved every minute of it so far!

 

Welcome aboard ladies!

Be sure to come back Tuesday for Challenge #42!
