B is for Badge (Button)

Happy New Year Everyone!!

This month we are scraplifting this delightful layout by Michelle, better known as -

Michelle says - "I am and a stay at home mom of three, ages 24, 14 and 5. I have a pretty supportive husband, who is all for my scrapbooking. He doesn't mind that the kitchen table disappears in scrap supplies. Lighting is so much better at the kitchen table!! I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years. I started out with Creative Memories back when it was pretty basic stuff. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I started to really dabble in what all the market has to offer!! I still have the same outlook as when I when I started out, with the photos and the story being the main focus of my pages. I just love making pages and recording memories for my family to go back and look at. It is my way of reinforcing how I feel about them and how much they mean to me.

I have had a few online publications and last year had my first print publication in Scrapbook Trend's CARDS magazine."
