We are so please and happy to welcome Roree Rumph as a first time guest designer at AllyScraps!! I'm sure you'll agree, her projects are wonderful! so whimsical and inspiring. I'll let her introduce herself...
"My name is Roree Rumph. I live in Daphne, AL with my husband David, my two daughters, Grace and Harper. I have been paper crafting for some time now, and it has become such a huge part of my life. I love making cards and altering things, and on occasion I scrapbook too. I love using a mix of colors and patterns; flowers and buttons are some of my favorite embellishments, and I one of my favorite tools is my sewing machine. I am currently designing for Pink Paislee and Color Combos Galore (color challenge blog). My work has been published in magazines such as Cards, Scrapbook Trends, Simply Handmade, and Paper Crafts. When I am not crafting, you can usually find me hanging out with my family, playing on the computer, shopping for supplies, reading a magazine, or sipping on a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks.
I am so excited to be a guest designing for AllyScraps this month, and I only hope that my work will help inspire you to be as creative as you can be."
