The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

Chris Severs

My name is Chris Severs. I have been married to the hubs for 17 years now...hard to believe it's been that long. I am a stay at home mom to 2 boys, Brock is 15 [the obnoxious teenager] and Quinn is 10 [the wild child]. We also have 4 pets, 2 dogs and 2 cats, and a very old goldfish. I was diagnosed with MS in 2001. Some days I can barely feel paper, but I keep going!! It just takes me longer to do certain things. I am hoping that I will still be able to enjoy my hobby for many more years to come! If not, i guess the hubs will have to take over [LOL]... We are originally from Colorado, but are east coast transplants thanks to the Navy.

I have always been addicted to paper.Eeven when I was younger. I still think the best time of the year is when we get to buy new school supplies...LOL [sigh] if only the boys felt that way. I have stamped for as long as I can remember, but way back then it was to make the envelopes look cute for the hallmark card...now the card and envie is stamped...I am even picky about what kind of postage stamps go on my cards...the flag and the liberty bell are not very flattering...yes, my post office hates me...

I started scrapbooking when Scott was still in the Navy and a friend of mine had a Creative Memories party...I HAD to buy something, so I bought a black album cuz way back then, black was not cool and so hard to find....that's where I met one of my dearest friends Latisha...and she started the whole stinkin' obsession!! so here I am today...addicted to paper and stamps...I love to stamp on my pages...I can not live without my alphabet stamps, flourishes and the journal-ling lines, by far the best invention for scrapbook pages....wish I would have thought of it! I look forward to sharing my work with you for the next few months!

And here is a sample of Chris' work......

Thanks for dropping by!
