(Side note from Amber: I love this "in action" picture! :))
"I've been crafty as long as I can remember, making many needlework projects, baskets, Hardanger, until the house was full. I began scrapbooking 4 1/2 years ago when we had to clean out my parent's home (my childhood home) to move my father into an assisted living facility after my mother died. I found boxes and boxes of pictures. I decided I wanted to make my father a small scrapbook so he could have some memories of my mother and their life together to look through whenever he wanted. Well, that first scrapbook turned into 2 for my dad, and I haven't looked back since. I also get great joy out of making cards and am beginning to dabble in altered art and mixed media. I think I discovered CropChocolate.com in April, 2009, so I've been on-board pretty much since the beginning. I've seen lots of changes in this company -- all of them customer oriented. I am a huge CC fan!
My favorite project made using CC products are these wooden blocks I made back in March, 2012. The paper is from MM Dilly Dally and so are all the embellishments. I cut the letters out on my Cricut. The blocks came from a friend who's neighbor burns wood. She's my source for all sorts of blocks.
I am very excited to be on this design team! It is humbling when I see the great projects posted on this site. There is so much talent here. I am honored to be a part of it."
