Hi!  Thanks for choosing me for LM GD!  Scrapbooking is life!  I love trying all the things.  You can find me over at A Cherry on Top where I host monthly challenges and over at Stick it Down and scrap Our Stash where I am on the design teams.  

I’m currently a stay at home mom to three kiddos and one dog.  When I’m not running around for soccer games, I enjoy watching all the crime documentaries.  My blog is scrappingthehills.blogspot.com
