Thanks for having me back as part of this amazing sketch site!  My name is Sarah Ward, but I'm known as Sar (rhymes with bear!) in the scrap world.  I am married to the love of my life Daniel, and we have three amazing children - Cooper 4, Georgia 2 and Bronte 1.  I have recently become a scrapbook shop owner (www.scrapbooksavvy.com.au) and as you can imagine my life revolves around scrapbooking,   whether it be packing orders, looking at and buying new products, or actually scrapbooking with my girls at crop days & nights.  The most important thing for me at this point is to continue scrapbooking, I don't want to become a scrapbook shop owner who no longer has time to scrap...continuing to create and actually BEING a scrapbooker is something I refuse to give up!

I am THRILLED to be continuing with the team!  I absolutely love it here.  Hello! My name is Jennifer Yates and I am a SAHM living in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas with my husband Mark (13 years) and two wonderful kiddos, Mason (4 1/2) and Maren (18 months).   I started scrapbooking almost 5 years ago, after the birth of our son Mason and have been HOOKED ever since!  Coming from a Graphic Design background scrapbooking gives me my creative release that I once had. It is definitely my therapy!  Scrapbooking has also started a love for photography that I never had.  It is something that I continually try to educate myself about and work on.  One of my favorite things in this wonderful hobby are embellishments!  I can't seem to get enough of them!!!  I really enjoy layering pieces, taking embellishments and different styles of papers and mixing them all together! It's fun to see what comes of it in the end.   What I love about scrapbooking is that things are continually changing and there is always new tips and techniques to learn from, which makes it so fun and exciting!  I have met many wonderful women who share the same passion for scrapbooking as I do and look forward to meeting many more here at Inspired Blueprints!

I am honored to be a part of your team once again.  Love it there!!!  Hi!  My name is Christie Wildes and am a Florida native.  I have a wonderful husband, Andy, who is an active duty soldier in the Army.  I am a stay-at-home mama to my two main scrapbooking subjects - Bayleigh, 7 years, and Layne, 1 yr old.  I have been scrapbooking since 1998, when I was introduced at a CM home party.  Needless to say, it wasn't long before I was exploring the local scrapbook store hunting contraband for my albums.  I am mostly a one page scrapbooker, but do enjoy creating various sizes of pages.  I consider myself a shabby chic, eclectic scrapbooker, with lots to look at on my pages.  I just love using product!  I enjoy scrapbooking as my creative outlet and a way to work with my hands artistically.  It brings me great joy to create lasting legacies and memories for my children to cherish forever!   I usually just pick some products and find a couple of pictures and get to work!
