Happy Birthday to A Walk Down Memory Lane!

Happy 9th Birthday to A Walk Down Memory Lane!! 
We are celebrating today with a blog hop so you can get to know our Design Team!

I am so happy to part of the design team again!!
A little about me: 
My name is Nicole Wise.  I live in Southern Maine with my husband, two kids and two dogs.   They are the main reason I scrap.  I love to scrap the funny moments and how they grow and change, as well as the activities we do as a family and that the kids participate in.  During the day, I am a Middle School Music Teacher.  I am in my 14th year of teaching and, while I am super excited when summer rolls around, I do love teaching!  The kids are really fun and keep me entertained every day. 
I have been scrapping for about five years.  In the past few years, it has truly grown into an obsession that I am thinking about all the time, and I am enjoying my roles on several design teams.  I am always looking for fun ideas to use in my scrapping and I enjoy surfing the internet to find interesting things to use and techniques to try.
Besides scrapping, I enjoy toting my kids to dance class, soccer, baseball and karate, as well as playing outside with them in our fun yard.  So, I have lots of opportunities to take photos of them doing fun things to scrap!

We are sharing our favorite projects that we have made in the last few months at AWDML, so after lots of hemming and hawing, I decided that my favorite is the emergency sewing kit that I made from a Sucrets tin and some fabulous Jillibean Soup papers!

Isn't it so cute?!  It sits proudly in my desk at school for when I lose that inevitable button, or even for when someone needs a safety pin.  It's already come in handy a few times!

I used lots of great products from AWDML to make this:
Jillibean Soup Homemade 6- Bean Soup Stickers
American Crafts Cardstock

I have a great giveaway for someone who leaves a comment my blog. One lucky person will recieve $5 Gift Certificate to A Walk Down Memory Lane!!
