Currently working: 

From guest posts to collaborations I am always excited to try new products and talk about all time favorites. I am a brand ambassador for the Brother Crafts ScanNCut, and I keep active with freelance work as well. You can find me blogging here, and at Adventureland Girls the website I run with my daughters featuring our love of all things Disney – especially trips, trip planning, and scrapbooking!

Scrapbook Workshop: my book with Memory Makers
There are hundreds of scrapbook designers out there doing fabulous work and showing it online, either in scrapbook community sites like Scrapbook.com or on their own blogs. But much more rare is the blogger who has fabulous ideas AND can teach readers how to get a similar look with innovative techniques. In Scrapbook Workshop, we have brought together popular and up-and-coming scrapbook bloggers who share their techniques along with great layouts, cards and more.
