Congratulations Diane (Florida granny)! The Scrap Girls Team has chosen Diane as the Member of the Month for May!

Diane has been a huge asset to Scrap Girls. Since joining in October 2010, Diane has joined in on a ton of challenges and swaps! She replies to other members status updates and spends lots of time in the gallery leaving love. Thank you so much for making Scrap Girls the fun and friendly purple place that it is!

Diane will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique and has the honor of wearing the Member of the Month blinkie!

When you have a few minutes Diane, please tell us a little about yourself and share a link to your favorite layout! Thank you for making Scrap Girls a wonderful, friendly place! Congratulations!!



It took me a while to gather thoughts, but here goes:
I wasnít a paper scrapper. My first interest actually was photo editing. After moving to Florida from New Jersey, I took a short course on how to use editing software. I bought PSE 6 and loved the neat things that I could do with it: cropping, adjusting color and light, and adding text. I went on to try different creative effects. Then I got curious about making scrapbook pages, so I started a search for scrapbooking freebies. I found several sites and began to download every free thing I could find. Thatís how I discovered Scrapgirls Ė and the rest is history! I liked the quality of the offerings here and the fact that SG gave away a whole free collection as well as something new each day. I even purchased a couple of things. Eventually I became a member and bravely posted my first layout. So I guess you could say I got lured to SG because of its generosity, then stayed because of its quality. I told my husbandís niece Marilyn (MariJ) to check SG out, and she joined even before I did. Now I have friends here from all over the world. We chat, we comment on each otherís layouts; itís just the warmest place I could imagine for indulging my hobby.

Now for some personal stuff: Iím married, retired, have two grown sons, and three adorable grandchildren. My husband and I live on the west coast of Florida. I like reading, sewing, yoga, needlework, eating and sleeping, but all those have been pushed aside for scrapping, LOL!

I guess I talked long enough! Carla, you asked me for a link to a favorite layout. Iíve put up so many layouts that I recruited MariJ and DH to help me pick. Hereís the link to one we all like:
One favorite

Also, in case you are curious, hereís my first layout (all freebies!)
Freebie layout

Thank you. I feel truly honored to have been picked for Scrapgirlsí Member of the Month.

So nice to read about you, Diane! And, even though the secret is out-of-the-bag that we are related, it was fun to read what you wrote! Of course I always say on SGs that they can blame YOU for me and always remember your first statement to me about online scrapping sites - you'd looked through a lot, but ScrapGirls was far superior. Being the good learner that I am, I never looked elsewhere! :)
I might also add that Diane is also an EXCELLENT teacher - many times in my scrapping start I would be so stuck and either email or call her and her directions were always so clear and easy-to-follow. I still have those directions in a "DIane" file along with many of the first creative trials she shared with me.
Proud to say we are related and can attest to those adorable grandchildren - they are! Heehee... Lovely Diane ! Enjoy your month and congratulations again! :D
