Guest Designer: Ali Gage

I am a stay at home mom of two wonderful kids, my son (4 in June) and my daughter (1 in June). They keep me very busy-our favorite things to do together are library trips, family crafts, and frequenting a nearby creek for hiking and swimming. My husband and I have been together for eight years, he is a wonderful father and he often facilitates my crafting time (so he is also my hero!).
I have a MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology, my teaching efforts right now are most directed at my children, but one day I would love to direct those efforts to a wider audience! For now I am enjoying being a mom and a teacher to the most important students in my life!
My scrapbooking really took off when I was pregnant with my son. I had been scrapping here and there in high school, but I became hooked when I had a tiny little person to take a million pictures of! I love using pattern paper and mixing patterns and colors that don’t necessarily “go” together.  I just started blogging in March and I am enjoying sharing my creations with everyone! I think completing challenges and sharing on my blog has taken my scrapping to the next level because I feel so inspired by everyone’s creativity! I really hope I can inspire others as well, check out my blog,

Thank you for being our guest, Ali!
