Carolyn ***you are here***

Here is a bit about me:

My name is Carolyn Lontin. I am married to Rick; we have one son,
Seth and two crazy dogs! We live in gorgeous Colorado, in a suburb
just south of Denver.

I began scrapping in October 2001 to preserve my son's childhood
memories and it quickly became an obsession! I love capturing my
family's "real" moments in both my photos and in my journaling
on my layouts. I have found the creative outlet of scrapping to be
incredibly relaxing and quite addictive, which is shocking to the previously
dominate non-artistic side of me! Over the past few years,
I have had the honor of having my work published in major publications.

Since 1994, I have been a Human Resource Director for a
manufacturing company. I also enjoy spending time with family
and friends, photography, exercising, cheering on my son's many
sports teams, mini-adventures exploring in the mountains, playing with
our dogs, and reading. I am super excited to be a part of
Let’s Capture These Sketches Design Team !

Here is our fantastic sketch & my layout using
Karen Foster's new Easter line:

Another post ...

Don't you just love when you create a layout & you just LOVE it! Last weekend I scrapped seven layouts and most of them I just LOVED! YAY!!

Here is one I created "double digits" for my son who just turned 10 yrs old in February. You can check out a complete supply list and directions on how to create the layout at Scrappin' Sports Stuff's blog.
