Meet our July Guest DT

We're almost ready to kick off a new month and a new DT term and today I want to introduce you to our July Guest DT - Marg Van Patten:


I hail from the "Land of 10,000 Lakes" and enjoy all that Minnesota's four seasons have to offer ... most especially the photo opts! I've been snapping photos since childhood and never did anything creative with them until I was introduced to scrapbooking in 1996. I attended my first crop in 1998, fell in love with the "sport" and never looked back! I continue to advance my skills by participating in local and online workshops. I began digital scrapbooking in 2008 and dabble with cards, party favors, and home decor projects on a regular basis. While I enjoy most forms of paper art, traditional paper scrapbooking is my first love. Some of my other interests include entertaining family and friends, reading, gardening, moderate exercise, cooking, and listening to music.


In 2010 a dear friend and fellow crafter encouraged me to start up a blog and paticipate in challenges. Even when I don't have time to enter a challenge, I hop on through some of my favorite blogs, like H2H, for inspiration. There's huge amounts of talent here at H2H and I'm both honored and excited to be the DT Guest this coming month.


You can visit Marg at her blog: I Didn't Have Potatoes. She'll be joining us starting this coming Monday and we're happy to have her! Welcome Marg!
