My favorite book/movie/song is anything that makes me cry. I fully acknowledge that I am a sap.
During my life, I have lived in many places: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, DC, Northern and Southern California, and Denver.
One of the most defining moments of my life was when my two-year-old son parked cars end to end and then responded to "What are you playing, Eli?" with "Traffic, Mommy!" I knew then that it was time to leave Los Angeles!
My camera is a Nikon D40, and my favorite lens is a 55-200mm zoom.
When I scrapbook, I must have Pandora running on my computer.
Though I began scrapbooking in 2004, I don't think I found my groove until 2006 when I found a group of like-minded scrappy friends online and another one locally.
My favorite scrapbooking colors are anything bright against white or kraft (or white and kraft).
You might notice that many of my pages include a border in a contrasting color.
