Hello! My name is Rochelle Spears. After 15 years of Real Estate, I am currently a SAHM of 5 children (22, 17, 11,4, and 2) that knows how to pose when they see a camera! :) I am a wife to a wonderful husband who supports my craft to the fullest! I have been scrapbooking for 7 years and I just can't get enough of it! I love product... the smell of new paper... I love seeing the creation in my mind come alive on my paper! I love putting the final touches on my layouts and the biggest love of all... is watching my husband pull out my scrapbooks when guests come over! :) Besides my family and scrapbooking, you will find me traveling, reading or watching Netflix! I love coffee in the morning, Mt. Dew during the day and chocolate at night. :)

Almost everything you see here is in the March's Sampler Kit and the items that are not can be found (or similar items) at the Scrapbooking Supplies are Us store.
One last thing I would like to share with you is a card I made for a challenge over at Colorful Creations. The paper is from the March's Sampler Kit too! :)
