About Me

My Photo
Heidi Colwell-Morris
Welcome to my little section of the world. This is my haven and escape when life gets to be too stressful.

I am a stay at home mom of 4 boys ages 21, 15, 9, and 3. I have been married for 16 years and live in West Bend, WI.  I got hooked on working with graphics during my Photoshop class while in school for web design. I started out making tournament layouts for an online gaming site and used a lot of scrap kits for them. I came across a digital scrap kit page on facebook one night and decided I could make my own elements and kits instead of using everyone else's. Now I can't stop. There really needs to be a 12 step program for scrappers. 

In my down time I enjoy reading, being outside (when it's not 100 or -0), shopping, and spending time with my family.

That's probably not a big deal for a lot of people but for me it was so I wanted to share a couple of the sets I made. I hope you can find a use for them and if you do please come back and share. I'd love to see what people are doing with my creations.
