Meet Our May Guest Designer

Are you getting excited for May's kit reveal? We sure are! The kits that Pam has assembled are absolutely breath taking. And what the design team has done with those kits... wow! Just wow! Contributing to the "wow" factor this month is a wonderfully talented scrapper who's guested for MCS in the past. So please join us, once again, in welcoming Jackie Anderson!

I have lived most my life in the beautiful mountains and deserts of Utah where the landscape is as varied as the people are homogeneous. In my life I have been a SAHM to three little boys, a dog, three cats, two miniature bunnies, and a duck (all at once), a single working mom, and a working mom of a combined family that included his two teenage girls, my two teenage boys and my little tail ender son trailing five years behind; oh, and two cocker-spaniels and three cats!

I've worked as a GED teacher, an eighth grade English teacher, a newspaper reporter and spent one year as a VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America) over-seeing the local chapter of our state’s Bringing Hope to Single Mom’s NPO. I am currently semi-retired, working half days as a classroom facilitator at the Utah State University satellite campus. I have been married to my dear sweetheart for fifteen years now. Our family continues to grow as we welcome daughters and son-in-laws. I am the grandmother of a nine-year-old girl and a two-year-old imp.

It was my brother who introduced me to the world of scrapbooking when an office staff member held a party in her home nearly fifteen years ago. I was hooked from the beginning, cutting all our family pictures into hearts, ovals, circles and stars with various deco edge scissors and plastering pages with adorable stickers. When I look at my pages now compared to then I am simply amazed at how far this hobby turned obsession has come.

Looking forward to seeing what you made to inspire us with this month Jackie! And of course, like always, I'm excited that the new month is coming around so Santa will arrive in my mailbox via MCS!
