Meet Sarah Swann, Our Newest Groovy Chick!
Hello everyone! My name is Sarah Swann. I'm an Air Force wife and a stay-at-home mother. I've been married to my husband for 8 years and we have a 2 year old daughter (3 in March) and we are expecting our second child (due July 31, 2011). We're currently living in Arizona and we hope to stay a while. I have been scrapbooking since 2003 and love everything about it! I normally do 12x12 layouts, but I've been venturing out into making cards and I'm also doing an 8.5x11 recipe album. I also make a lot of mini books. I'm so excited to be a part of this team and I can't wait to be challenged and help to inspire others. You can find me on my blog The Scrap Angel (thescrapangel.blogspot.com) and I'm also a designer at Scrapping the Moments (scrappingthemoments.com). I can't wait to get to know everyone!
