Melissa Priest

My name is Melissa Priest and I live in Amarillo, Texas. I am married to my best friend, Alex and together we have two boys. Benjamin is 9 and John is 7. I have always been creative but found my love for scrapbooking 4 years ago. I tend to have a clean and simple style - but love to try new techniques and explore all the new products out. My family says I am "Scrapbook Possessed" - and I tend to agree. I absolutely love patterned paper, and I usually have a camera around my neck. I mainly create 12x12 layouts, but love making mini albums and cards as well. There have been many nights, long after my family has gone to bed, that I am still up trying to finish a layout while the creativity is still flowing. I am so excieted to be on the Let's Scrap Design Team!

congrads girls and its great to have you with us!

August design team-guest designer

we just wanted to say congrads to jessica! (jspara) over on cafemom.
here is her personal statement on cafemom!
On most days I feel like a misplaced New Yorker stuck in a hum drum life in Pa. Ha! I actually am. I am a mom of 3. My kids are my life. There is not a thing I wouldn't do for them. I have been married for 14 years which is amazing I might add, since my mom has been married 3 times. I will be starting college at the end of August in the hopes of becoming an RN (nurse). Other than being on CM to much, I love scrapbooking, cardmaking, reading and relaxing. I have so many wonderful friends here on CM and I am so thankful. You girls Rock!

congrads jess you did a great job with the LO girlfriend
