gosh. i am feeling SO many emotions.
gratitude, awe, joy, excitement. the list goes on.
it was probably 10 years ago or so when i discovered my love for scrapbooking.
with that love came the discovery of SO many incredible artists that were a part of this industry.
one of those artists, a woman by the name of ali edwards completely stole my heart with the way she chose to document her life. her real life.
i loved how she combined words and photos to convey the stories of her life.
from day one i was inspired and really have been a super fan ever since.
fast forward to 2011. i attended my 3rd creative escape event put on by the amazing heidi swapp and was lucky enough to take a class and meet the incredible ali edwards. this is a picture of us at the event with one of my dearest and best friends sherry. we had SO much fun i remember.
now…well, it is crazy to think what life can bring you.
i am beyond thrilled and honoured to be one of the chosen to join ali edwards and design for her brand. truly a dream come true. there are 14 other incredible ladies on the team that i so look forward to getting to know and be inspired by. there is nothing more powerful in this world than like minds and kindred spirits.
i am also really looking forward to expanding my creativity. i have enjoyed digital scrapbooking in the past, but am looking forward to incorporating even more digital elements into my memory keeping and using a lot of hybrid elements as well. i will always be a "paper and glue" kind of girl at heart, but sometimes it is truly refreshing to work outside of your comfort zone. i often hear that is where the "magic" happens! ;)
i love that no matter what your style or design, they are just perfect for any project. their versatility is fabulous.
