June Guest Designer
"Aloha SOS Fans! I am such a fan of SOS and so honored to be the June guest designer. My name is ClaireR. I'm originally from Hawai'i however currently living just north of Los Angeles, California with my husband, aka the hubz. You know what they say: "You can take the girl out of Hawai'i, but you can't take Hawai'i out of the girl." 
My crafting journey started something like this. One winter back in 2009, I decided to make Christmas cards (on a whim, just for fun). I made really cute snowmen out of yarn and adhered them to one layer of paper. I was a knitter at the time, so I had plenty, and still have plenty, of yarn laying around. Those cards were a hit with my friends and family. The next year I decided to buy a Christmas card kit with paper and diecuts. Well that was so much fun but I wanted to do so much more, I wanted to create my own die cuts. So on my birthday in 2011, I bought a Cricut, one month later I created my blog, www.ThreeWatersCreations.blogspot.com, started participating in challenges to learn how to create cards and that is how my crafting journey started. Cards turned into home decor which turned into scrapbooking, scrapbooking and more scrapbooking....
I look forward to visiting all your blogs and seeing your scrapbook pages this month. Mahalo!  "
