Been Caught Stealing-March 2012 Guest Designer

We would like to introduce you to our March Guest Designer, Mary Buttons...

"Hi fellow counterfeiters my name is Mary Buttons (Bainbridge really but I love using buttons so chose that as my user name) I am a grandmother to 3 Grandsons (my daughter has two boys and my son has one),I am retired, and was widowed in 2002. I live with three cats Rudi my 15 year old male and two lively black & white 7 month old female kittens.

I didn't start scrapbooking till about 2003, after my husband died I wanted a way of preserving his memory, and for the first 18months I did nothing but digital scrapping, teaching myself and making all my own papers and embellishments. I progressed to paper scrapping when I joined a club that was just starting in my area but my first love is still digital and still with all my own creations.

Over the years I have accumulated so much stash that just gets put in drawers and not used much so when Jemma (Jimjams) joined your DT and told us about it (we are in the same team on UKScrappers) I thought what a good way to use some of my stash mountain.

I have been in the process of sorting and tidying my craft room and conservatory (where I mostly paper scrap) and so have been doing digital for the last month. My space is nearly ready to paper scrap again.  I did produce a digital counterfeit kit in January and that was great fun to do."
