finally team A design team reveal with challenge for you!

so sorry about the delay everyone, its been a crazy week here! but without further ado here is team A's reveal!

this month i told the girls to pick their own sketch so here we go!

first i want to introduce our guest designer: Tracy aka nannytracy over at cafemom:

I am a SAHM who is homeschooling my 7 year old. My 4 year old granddaughter also lives with us (as does her mother, my 28 year old daughter). I have been married to my best friend for 15 years now, between us we now have 6 grandchildren.

I first started scrapping in 2001. At that time I had NO idea what was out there. I just knew that I had just returned from a once in a life time vacation and wanted to do something different with the pictures. I used plain white paper for all the backgrounds and added some strips of colored paper and stickers with lots of journaling. My hubby was so proud he took it to work and showed it off. One of the ladies in his office said something about scrapbooking and an Expo that was coming up in a couple of weeks. LOL. If he knew then what he knows now he probably wouldn't get the two of us together. I have been hooked ever since, but the best part is how much I have learned in the past year or so on CafeMom. The ladies in the scrapping groups I belong to are so talented and they have inspired me to think outside of my comfort zone on many occasions. The quality of my pages has improved immeasurably.
