Meet April! :)

Hello Everyone!! My name is April and I'm 33 years old. I've been married to an amazing man, Mark, for 12 years and we have two gorgeous daughters, Emily (11) and Madison (5). We live in NC, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it's beautiful here! I really love it. :)

I've been a steady scrapbooker for about 2 1/2 years. I say that because I actually first got into scrapbooking way back when Emily was a baby, but I didn't really know what it was back then. Most of those pages were covered with pictures that had been cut with deco scissors and TONS of stickers, lol! I would definitely say my style has evolved since then and it continues to do so every day. It's amazing how many techniques are out there and how easily you can find people willing to show them to you online. I also really enjoy making cards, which is a great place to try out those new techniques!

Other than scrapping and cardmaking, I have a huge passion for photography. I take tons of pictures, so many that sometimes I annoy my family members! It doesn't matter to me are memories, and if you don't capture them, they are sometimes lost. That's too sad to even think about, and it's why I decided to start be able to put my stories down with those pictures so that we can always remember what's happened in our lives. I'm thinking one day my girls will be very thankful that their mommy was a scrapbooker. ;)

Here are a few of my favorite layouts and cards that I've see more, you can visit my blog at
