Please welcome our February guest designer ...

This month we welcome Sherri Priest as our guest designer with her take on our challenge image.

I used K&Company Postcard printed flat paper
Took a page from a telephone book, punched out a shape, misted it and made my flower. 

Sherri Priest from Whitehouse, Texas (East Texas) who celebrates her 35th wedding anniversary this year to hubby Gary.  I have two grown sons who are both Eagle Scouts and now I have a sweet daughter in law, two precious grandchildren, Gracie who is 4 1/2 and Zachary who is almost a year. 

I started scrapping about 13 years ago.  I made my first scrapbook for my nephew when he was graduating from high school as a gift.  My second album was for my god daughter who graduated the same year as a gift.  From there I went crazy.  I remember having one tote that was not even full of scrap supplies and now I have a room full!  How do we get so much stuff.  I love making gift albums and have made many over the years for graduation, wedding and Christmas presents.  It is especially meaningful to give one to someone who has all their photos in a drawer somewhere, all scattered; to be able to pull their life photos all together into something they can view and enjoy and share. 

I sometimes wonder what will happen to all my albums - if they will just go in a landfill somewhere at sometime but in the meantime, I still enjoy the creative process and making them.  And hopefully, in my old age, I will be able to pull them out to help me remember things that I had forgotten which will bring a smile to my face.

Some more work by Sherri ...

Thank you for joining us this month Sherri and sharing your work. 

You have until the end off the month to play along with us with our February challenge.  We'd love to see how you are inspired by our photograph this month.  Thank you for your continued support.

Next week we have something new to share with you, something special from a member of our design team.  Please call past on the 22nd for some Team Training.
