June HOMECOMING Challenge by Tamara

Design Team Member Tamara submitted these layouts for the June HOMECOMING Challenge. She said:

When I think of homecoming, I thought of our second home, the cabin! This is one of my favorite places to go. We go as many weekends as we can. Here I find peace and beauty in the outdoors and I also enjoy my scrapping hobby. I have my own little stash of supplies in a corner in the closet of my bedroom. I just cook meals and scrapbook, nothing else is pressing when we are at the cabin.

Bio~ I am a scrap o holic! Yes that is true. I am happiest when I am scrapping. I scrapbook almost every day as life permits. I would love to quit my full time job and scrap every day away. My life story unfolds in the pages of my scrapbooks. I have been scrapping since I was just a young girl, over forty years now. :0) Yes that is correct. I like to think that I am now a shabby chic scrapper. I love to ink the edges of my paper and give it the vintage look. I have come along ways from construction paper and rubber cement to beautiful pattern papers of every kind, colored acid free paper and mono adhesive. I AM the mono Queen! I love the stuff! Seriously. I have had the opportunity to be on a few design teams, I won 2nd place in the Skinny Cow scrapbook Contest earning a year supply of skinny cow products which was delicious by the way. LOL I have never been published but haven't submitted anything to become such. I am a full time Dental office manager, wife of 34 years, mother of two, grandmother of 3. I love life and I love to travel and I love scrapbooking!!
