Scrap'n Surprise
After having taught in the public and private school systems for years as a Kindergarten teacher, I am now a SAHW in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Living in the desert has proven to be very interesting.  I started scrapbooking when my grandson was born 6 years ago, and have most recently done more card making than layouts. I love getting out my glue, scissors, die cutting machine, embossing tools, and Copics and making a huge mess!  I guess that comes from the years spent with the five year olds!  My husband supports my “habit” completely and is my number one fan. I spend my days at home with my little Yorkie, Lizzy, and seeing my grandson when I can.   I look forward to being on a Design Team and learning and experiencing new friends, new techniques and new styles!

Scrap My Stash
Hi everyone, my name is Mary. I'm a married SAHM of 2 teens, a boy and a girl. I have lived in colorful Colorado since 1978. I have been crafting from childhood, and have tried everything from sewing to lapidary. I started scrapbooking about 7 years ago and eventually became aware of the wonderful world of card making. Card making led me to the amazing world of blogs, challenges and this incredibly fantastic opportunity to be a part of the DYSU design team. One of my favorite things about DYSU is the wide variety of styles I see in the submissions. It always amazes me that one idea can be interpreted in so many ways. I hope to share my creations with you, inspire you and be inspired by you, and have a lot of fun! I am going to relish seeing your creations for each challenge. As a fairly new blogger, I love seeing visitors and am amazed by how connected our world has gotten in my lifetime with the merging of creativity and technology. My blog is

Before Mary was invited to the design team, she was already scheduled as our guest designer this week.

I was sent this fab rubber stamp text set from Crafty Individuals.  Fabulous deep etched unmounted red rubber stamps - work beautifully.  I wanted to do somethoing a bit special with it., so I made so I made this card with a tag keep sake.  In the spirit of doing more for the chaps in our life, I have tried to keep it masculine looking so it would be suitable for a special man.  I hope You don't think it's too plain
