Designer-A-Day: Penny Smith


Hi! I'm Penny! I have been scrapbooking FOREVER! Since Mrs. Grossman stickers were about the only embellishment out there! LOL! But took long breaks due to "life". Before kids, I use to be a Registered Veterinary Technician working in emergency medicine AND a marine mammal trainer! (Yes, I trained dolphins!) I started scrapbooking continually after I moved home to the Eastern Iowa area, when my best friend opened a scrapbooking store. And BOY did she create a FABULOUS store! I started paying attention to the "outside world" of scrapbooking about a year and 1/2 ago, and I haven't looked back! Since then I have lead a book project for Pine Cone Press, designed product line for a small scrapbooking company, been published, done some design team work (including starting a challenge blog), teaching and designing each month at Scrapaganza (the Eastern Iowa store I work for), and been Certified as a Educator for Ranger! But I can honestly say, this is one of the most EXCITING things that has happened to me in scrapbooking-being chosen for this FANTASTIC team!!
I have three kids, 6, 7 and 8... and a FABULOUS husband, (and three goofy dogs!) and in addition to scrapbooking, I like to get outside whenever we can as a family (camp, walk, bike) and just PLAY! Scrapbooking, and related crafting, is my only hobby! I LOVE it! Come visit me on the web at my blog!! I look forward to a AWESOME year of creating!!

Created with someone else's product, but we loved the ITOP BRAD in the center of the flower...totally makes this layout ROCK!

Congrats Penny!! Thought I left a comment but it must of gotten lost in cyberspace! Love your layouts and have been a fan of Imaginisce paper for quite some time. We carry it in our scrapbook store in northern Calif. I've not gotten the ITop but I've seen what it can do. Perhaps that will have to go on my Christmas list!
