Here she is: Leah Larson, Paper Pals Design Team Member!
Leah is originally from Canada. She has now been in the states for over 15 years, but she's managed to hold on to her accent. :) Leah formally worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse in Seattle. "We moved from Bellevue, WA to Pullman 4 years ago. After my daughter was born I really didn’t want to go back to work and leave her in someone else's care, so my husband and I decided to move to Pullman where my stepsons live."
Leah has been scrapbooking for 10 years now. She says, "The more I do it the more I love it. I am sure I will be a scrapbooker for the rest of my life." There are many things that inspire Leah when it comes to papercrafting. "I love the stories and the photos. Not to mention the paper, stickers, embellishments, stamps… I am driven to record the everyday things that happen to us. It would be wonderful to see all these kind of details about my Grandmother’s life. Just a simple photo of what was in her cupboards would be fascinating to me."
When it comes to the pros, Ali Edwards is a “life artist” that she truly admires. She loves her clean and artistic style and the fun projects to share. She also regularly keeps tabs on Becky Higgins’ blog. Leah is currently doing Becky's "Project Life" and she is "totally in love. This is the first time since starting scrapbooking were I have been caught up on the current year."
One of Leah's favorite product lines is Cosmo Cricket-- available at Paper Pals! She's drawn to the manufacturer's cute designs.
One recent project she has worked on was for her daughter's birthday. Isn't that robot just the cutest? And what a unique idea for a little girl's birthday!
Go visit the store yourself to experience what Leah loves!
And come back here next week to meet Design Team Member, Judy!
