Kimberly Neddo shines in the spotlight today:
Short bio: My name is Kimberly and I am both honored and thrilled to be chosen to
be on the American Crafts Design Team. I currently live in Bigfork,
Montana and love the mountainous views that surround me year round. I am
married and I have three beautiful children who are my main subjects,
Noel, Foster, and Olivia and three bonus (step) children Mike, Lexx, and
Charlie. I've been scrapbooking for 16+ years and enjoy the process of
creating new and fun designs with paper and embellishments. I've been
honored to be published by Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Memory
Makers, and Scrapbook Trends. I have a passion to create art, whether it
be with scrapbooking or photography; I love the challenges they both
give me on an ongoing basis. I am thankful for this opportunity to
create and inspire using the FABULOUS American Crafts products. Thank
you! xo K
Favorite thing to scrapbook: My family.
Favorite AC product: It is so hard to choose ONE favorite product, but I have to go with Thickers because they are a staple for me at all times. :)
5 fun facts:
1. I am completely addicted to practicing Yoga and learning more challenging poses.
2. I love to read several books at a time. I like to have at least three going, depending what I'm in the mood for determines what I read. :)
3. I just learned how to knit this year and it has become a whole new passion for me.
4. My two favorite snacks are homemade popcorn with olive oil and sea salt, and graham crackers with cream cheese frosting on them. YUM!
5. I love to take road trips, but I have to be in the passenger seat so I can knit and get caught up with reading.
Kimberly shares, "Here is a card I created for my daughter who is in the Air Force. I wanted something bright and cheerful for this card so the new Amy Tangerine Paper lines and embellishments were perfect! "

"This layout is my current favorite for many reasons. I LOVE these two girls together. They are such a joy, and always off creating some fun adventures around my Aunt place in California. I really loved combining several of the new lines together for this layout. They all work so well together. Lately I've really been enjoying making banners with my patterned papers. For this layout, I created a fun banner frame to add movement to my page and draw the viewers eye right to the photograph. I really love the Roxie Alphabet Stamp set too. It's the perfect size for a subtitle, and really great to mix it up, as I did for my title, with a pen diluted with water to fill it in."
