Happy to meet Lisa Bearnson!

Hello!  I went to The Creating Keepsakes Convention at the end of July in Lancaster PA (as I do every year!).  This year one of my original mentors, Lisa Bearnson was there! I just had to thank her for bringing this hobby to light and for all of the inspiration she ( her magazine and Becky Higgins!) brought me.  It really was the icing on the cake for me!  The resulting page here is for -> (click & go right there!) LET'S GET SKETCHY (week 1 for November) AND we have teamed up with  ->  spiegelmomscraps .

Not often but YEP!-it's me!

Hello fellow papercrafters!  Yep! I broke down and for a change I am on the page!  The reason I say this is: MY GRANDSONS AND NIECE are way cuter and more fun to scrap!!! But-in this case-I met a friend from scrapbook.com-she came to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Lancaster PA at the end of July and we met up there-wish we'd had longer since she was really a fun person! It was also done for a Round Robin Challenge at scrapbook.com inspired by the original page by "Floramfarkas".
 ***Simple Stories spotted it there and pinned it to their "I AM" board-that was exciting too!
