Hi and welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy your visit.
When I first set up this blog I called it Life Keeps Surprising Me but, since it has now become more about papercrafting, I changed the name to be more reflective of what is going on here.
I am so appreciative of those who have elected to follow my blog and I love to read comments that have been left here for me.
Thanks so much for dropping by.

I belong to an online group that gets together a couple of times a month (online) to scrap. This group is an offshoot of another group called Scrap From Your Stash. The SFYS group has helped me save money in that I feel like I'm cheating if I purchase something when I have something in my stash that could have worked just as well. All members of the cyber-cropping group are also members of the SFYS group. These folks are very talented and creative and being associated with them has encouraged me to create more scrapbook pages and cards in the 2 months that I have been a member than I have ever done in any 2 month period in the past. I also find the challenges they suggest to be very inspiring. I am grateful to be a part of those groups. I will be posting here the pages that I have completed during the cyber-crops as well as other projects I have completed.
I have been married to my best friend for 35 years (this June) and we are parents of two amazing women and two equally amazing men. Our 4 children have given us 14 fabulous grandchildren whom we love madly. I enjoy scrapbooking and cardmaking. My inspiration for my scrapbook layouts is primarily my beautiful grandchildren.
