I live in sunny Colorado. We moved here in 2003 and we just LOVE IT! I started scrapbooking in 1999, just about the time my youngest son was born, and I've been addicted ever since. I can't think of a better way to spend a few minutes each day... scrapping or even just thinking about it. I'm also a Close To My Heart consultant. If you haven't seen their products yet, you should check them out - www.heartscrapper.myctmh.com. The acrylic stamps are awesome!
