SDC281 - Background Love - Week 2

Woot! Week 2 of Background Love is here and we have really enjoyed all the entries so far. Let's see your best Background Love projects everyone!

We are thrilled to have Kim Howard joining us as guest designer this month. Kim was our wonderful design team coordinator for years and we are so happy to have her back for the month of September!!


Hi Everyone! My name is Kim Howard or 
I'm a wife and mom of 3, our oldest son a senior in high school this year, our daughter heading to middle school and youngest son in 4th grade...and I work full time traveling a bit.  I've been stamping and scrapbooking for over 15 years.   I had taken a bit of a break from my creativity while we moved (that was 18 months ago) & I'm finally trying to get back into my stamping & scrapbooking. I had the honor to be the design team coordinator for Stampotique for years and have loved the friendships I made with this team, not to mention the stamps????  I mean, there hasn't been a release I didn't love all the images from the designers.  I'm excited to be a part of Stampotique again as a guest designer.
