I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
I am happy to announce that I will be continuing on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team for another year. Thank you to all who voted for me. I truly appreciate it and look forward to bringing you more of my designs and creations in the coming year. For more inspiration, please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog. Have a great day!
