Mona Pendleton - Westies
Phoenix, AZ
My name is Mona Pendleton and I am so thrilled to have been invited to become a member of the unique Dirty Dozen Design Team! After coming home from a long day at work early in January, I sat down to check my email only to find one that read "Private Message" from Splitcoaststampers. It was an invite to call Jenn Balcer! When I called Jenn, she invited me to become a "Dirty" girl! Oh my gosh! I wish she told me to sit down first! Of course I said "YES", I would be more than honored! I met her & few other girls at CHA assisting in make & takes @ the SCS booth! What a fun, outgoing group of talented papercrafters to become part of a team with!

A little about me: I live in Phoenix, AZ & I am a wife to an amazing husband, a mom of a 22 year old son and a 20 year old daughter, a step-mom of a 14 year old son and 13 year old daughter and, of course, mom to two 4 yr old West Highland Terriers.

I have been scrapbooking for 7 years and card making for 4. My friend introduced me to SCS 4 yrs ago & I have been hooked ever since! I have gained so much inspiration from the site and have learned many new techniques at SCS. I find papercrafting to be my creative outlet and relaxing time after a challenging day at work as an Operating Room Registered Nurse. I have enjoyed browsing the gallery, searching the forum for tips and playing along in sketch, color and inspiration challenges on SCS for the past 2 years.

I am looking forward to becoming a part of the Dirty Dozen and hope I serve the members of SCS community well smile It has been quite a challenge keeping this HUGE secret tight lipped for the past 2 months until my reveal!

BIG hugs & many thanks to Splitcoaststampers for this amazing opportunity! I hope I am able to inspire members to play along and get involved with this incredible community of papercrafters!
