Congrats to Vicki Wooledge - Our Newest Scrapper of the Month!

A big shout out to Vicki Wooledge who is our newest Island Girl Scrapper of the Month! Vicki has been scrapbooking since 1996 when the only supplies around were pens, markers & stickers! Boy, things have sure changed since then (thankfully)! Vicki's current obsession are alphabets (which she needed to buy a separate case for!) and all things Basic Grey. She has done a few cool acrylic mini books but mainly does 2-page layouts.

Vicki & Steve have been married since 2002 and moved from Chicago to San Jose in 2003. She is a super-busy stay at home mom to her two wonderful boys, Justin (2004) and Brandon (2006). Vicki loves to scrap their milestones and busy personalities.

In addition to scrapbooking, Vicki loves to hang out with friends (see the photo of her and Elisabeth in the photo album in the pink bar on the left), eating out and seeing movies. She also tries to visit her family who live out of state a few times a year too.

Vicki says the most incredible thing about scrapbooking is that it has brought her new amazing that her hobby has created incredible friendships! Who could ask for more!

Congratulations Vicki! We love seeing you in the store, hearing your contagious laughter and seeing all your wonderful pages! We can't wait to see what you do next!
