I am an "older than dirt" mother of two and grandmother to three lovely grandchildren (2 girls, 1 boy). I retired from my job of 25 years at the end of 2005. I stumbled on a digital scrapbooking site by accident and I was hooked! After a stint on a couple of creative teams during which I had begun to design alphas and elements, I submitted my designs and was accepted at Digitals where I became exclusive on my one year anniversary. Designing digital backgrounds and elements is the perfect creative outlet for me due to lack of space. I found that I most enjoy designing heritage style kits.
