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 yr old son & 20 yr old daughter, a Step-Mom of a 14 yr old son & 13 yr old daughter & two 4 yr old West Highland Terriers.
I have been scrapbooking for 7 yrs & 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 & have learned many new techniques at SCS. I find papercrafting to be my creative outlet & 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 & inspiration challenges on SCS for the past 2 years.
I am looking forward to becoming a part of the Dirty Dozen & hope I serve the members of SCS community well :) 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 & get involved with this incredible community of papercrafters!
