Welcome to our newest DT member!

We are so happy to announce we have a new team member!  Please join us in welcoming our new design team member Stacy Daubenberger!!  
Here is a little bit about Stacy:  Hello!  My name is Stacy and I live in Southwest Florida with my husband, our teenage son, and our two furbaby rescue dogs.  I work full-time as a Billing Manager for an Orthopedic Surgery group.  I’m originally from a tiny town in central Missouri where I grew up on a farm, the youngest of 5 children.  I’ve always enjoyed different types of crafting since I was a child and I began scrapping 17 years ago, after the birth of my son.  My style has definitely changed over the years...I’m not sure how I’d define it today!  Sketches are my go-to for a jump start of creativity, and I love to add “clusters” and layering on my pages.  I also enjoy using stencils, texture pastes, and sometimes my sewing machine on my projects.  I’m almost exclusively a one-page 12” x 12” scrapper and enjoy making cards, also.  I’m so excited to join the Sketch N Scrap Design Team! You can find me at my blog, #InMyLife. 
Welcome Stacy!!  We are excited to have you join us!  Stacy will starting with our June 15th sketch so make sure and check back then to see her amazing layout!
