for a couple years now, i have been eating, breathing, sleeping, playing and working stamping and scrapbooking…. since i manage a local stamp & scrapbook store, i’m around “it” all the time, and I LOVE IT!! I have definately learned what styles i like to see, and who creates layouts like this… one person that stood out to me right away was Jennifer McGuire….
she designs for hero arts & autumn leaves ( and before 7 gypsies)
she is close to my age
she has recently married and is now a “step mum” of 2 girls…
i just relate to all of that..
oh yea and she recently got a new puppy…. which has become a 3rd child… sound familiar?
so watching her lo’s in magazines and seeing what shes up to on 2peas… i seem to know a lot about her… so much that jayne has reffered to her as “oh you mean.. your friend jen!?”
i have been lucky enough to take a bunch of classes with her at a retail show jayne and i go to.. and just love everything she teaches me!!
when jayne and i were heading to CHA she asked
“is jennifer mcguire going to be there”
and i reply ” oh no.. she’ll be in st. maarten that week”
jayne just walks away shaking her head hehehe
so this weekend at the show jayne and i went to.. i asked jen to pose for a pic with me so i can do a layout about my friend jen 🙂 she laughed and said sure!
I also had tons of fun with Tim Holtz, Suzy West ( she hung out with debbie and i at the make & take frenzy) & Renee Camacho… WHAT FUN!!!
** on a side note…. i have been informed that if anyone is going to read this thing .. that i have to update it more often.. so i am trying my best to make that a TO DO… ** stay tuned!
