Hello from Northern PALS member :)

I am so excited to be a part of the PALS.  My name is Debbie and I have been scrapbooking, card making & papercrafting for many many years...I may actually be in the double digits by now.  A few things about me...married for 12 years this October (but together for 16), I have three beautiful daughters-age 13, 10 & 8, 1 dog & 2 cats.  I have lived in Northern Illinois all my life except for when I went to Southern Illinois for college.  I work for a child safety website that creates child safety IDs and many other safety products for family, travel, pets, etc...but my passion is for papercrafting...I have a website for custom greeting cards.  I am also a Publisher Mom with Macaroni Kid.  I publish a weekly newsletter telling my subscribers what there is to do with their kids and family has given me another outlet to do things with my kids.

Most recently, I have been asked to be on a design team for a local scrapbook is my first time doing anything like that but I am so very excited...I can hardly contain myself about it.

My PTI obsession...I have come to grips with my obsession with PTI.  I found them about 2 years ago and I am not sure what I did before them.  I follow Nichole Heady's blog very regularly...along with Dawn McVey...they are a complete inspiration to me.  The color combinations, a love for all things doily and the creative use of stamps keep me coming back day after day.
