Welcome December's Guest Design artist

Good Morning
It's raining here in California and lol I had to walk Bradley to school in it... with one umbrella and all 3 of us under it! About half way there, I gave it to the boys to share and I walked in the rain. Oh the things we do for our kid-os.

The count down continues, but for today we are going to welcome our December Guest Design Artist. Please Welcome...

Gina Hanson

My name is Gina Hanson, I live in South Eastern Washington with my husband Joe, we just celebrated out 16th Wedding Anniversary. I am a SAHM to our two children, Kaitie (14) and Jakob (10). I discovered this amazing hobby almost thirteen years ago when my daughter was just about two years old. My sister dragged me to a party and ever since then I've been hooked, although my style has most certainly evolved from the days of heart and star shaped photos! I'm so thankful that I found this amazing hobby, I'm able to hold onto memories and special moments that would otherwise soon become packed in a box and stored in a corner.

Over the past few years, I have been lucky enough to have had numerous layouts, cards and projects published in scrapbooking magazines and idea books. I also have a passion for photography and very rarely can be found without my camera. I enjoy capturing our everyday life through my lens. I've always had a hard time defining my style, it seems to be whatever the mood of what layout I'm working on and of course the products. I try not to limit myself to one particular style nor could I describe it with just one word. It's always evolving, some layouts are simple and others are more complex. Clean and simple with a "kick" does ring a bell though! :)
