We Welcome our June Guest Designer - Lisa Gregory

This month we have the pleasure of adding the very talented to Lisa Gregory to our design team as our Guest Designer.  Wow, has she ever impressed us with her creativity!  You are going to love how she has used our June Kit, Dream in Pastel.  Now I will turn over this post over to Lisa, who will tell you a little bit about herself, then show you how she has used the kit.

Hi, My name is Lisa and by profession I am a registered nurse. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children who are now successful young adults.  I have been a crafter my whole life. Back in 2005, when my son was doing his senior project with his girlfriend (who is now his wife) they were creating a scrapbook of their lives. They elicited my help as I was the crafty one. We took a ride to The Dollar Tree (our local dollar store) who had a section dedicated to scrap booking;  papers, albums, embellishments, flowers, and we grabbed everything we could find. I knew about the new way of scrap booking, but never gave it any thought until that trip to The Dollar Tree. After helping the kids create their albums , I was curious as to where I could get more "scrap booking stuff". So I drove to our local Michaels and Joanns craft stores. That is when I became hooked.

Then I sought out the local scrapbook stores and found stuff I didn't even know existed until then. I shopped and shopped and shopped some more. I found online galleries and saw the kind of scrap booking the artists did. I was amazed at the styles. It just wasn't cut and paste and stickers. It was 3 dimensional, it was gorgeous, and oh so inspiring. So I created a gallery, created my first layout and the rest is history. My style has changed a bit throughout the years, but playing with paper and scissors is still so therapeutic for me. I am honored and excited to be Guest Designing for C'est Magnifique. 

Thanks everyone!  Be sure to stop back on June 1st when we will be posting our June Sketch Challenge.
