We are so pleased to welcome Cherry Nelson to the AllyScraps blog. We've been admiring her awesome cards and altered art on her blog Cherry's Jubilee for quite some time, and we are so honored that she has agreed to design for us this month. Welcome Cherry!
"I have had a fascination with paper and scissors from an early age..use to cut out little paper villages and I adored paper dolls (still do)! About three years ago I started scrapbooking to preserve memories of my son and our family. In the last year I have found I really enjoy making cards and love to alter found items and make them my own. Paper is my passion and is theraputic to my soul. I enjoy the whole process of creating...from found items, finding that perfect paper, to the embellishments. It makes me happy!"
