I am a 36 year old mother of three wonderful children who provide me with endless scrapbooking material. Scrapbooking is my peaceful time in a very hectic life. I love both paper and a digital scrapbooking, and it is difficult to say which I do more. I am highly motivated, and am at my best when I am meeting a deadline. I enjoy trying new techniques and meeting new people. I am friendly, outgoing, and efficient. I love sharing my projects and my knowledge.

Digital Design Work:
In 2007, I designed digital paper and embellishments for ElementalScraps.com as well as http://www.doitdigi.com/, and ScrapCentral.ca. I sold my products under the name “Miracle’s Momma Designs".
