A big AllyScraps welcome to Daniela Dobson!

We are so pleased to welcome Daniela Dobson as a special guest designer here at AllyScraps. We've admired her work for a long time, and we are so happy to have her with us. Here is Daniela, I'll let her tell you a little about herself.

"My name is Daniela and I live in Dallas, TX. I am married to Peter and we have a little boy, Alex, who is 3 years old. He keeps me busy and my days are filled taking care of him. I have been scrapbooking and stamping for over 8 years. I really enjoy challenges and strive to be innovative. I love recording every day moments, especially now, with my son. I am a night owl and I stay up way too late creating. I love patterned paper and I am a collector of things, stamps in particular, they are everywhere. When I am not crafting I can be found spending time with my two boys, watching reality TV, cooking or reading."
