A little info about Gretchen H. McElveen

How long have you been scrapbooking? I started after I got married so about 6 years.

What was your first venture into the crafting world?
Uh, summer camp?? This is a hard question to answer because I feel like I have always been doing crafty things from making potholders and friendship bracelets as a child to making posters for the sorority house in college. My crafty obsession now just happens to be scrapbooking!

First crafty claim to fame?
I won a drawing contest in the 5th grade. I cannot remember the exact rules of the contest but my picture had something to do with Smokey the Bear and preventing forest fires. I won 1st place and I got my picture in the paper and everything!

Favorite type of project? mini album, layout, card, altered?
Layouts for sure!

Favorite type of embellishment?

Tool you can't live without?
My Cutterbee scissors!
