When We asked Jocelyn to Guest Design for us this month
I was soo excited. Not only is she a fabulous Scrapbooker, but also an amazing girl.
I asked her for a short little bio for us, so here it is...

I began my love for papercrafting making cards about 11 years ago!!! My mother and I joined a stamp club and it has been an ongoing process from that point forward!!!! I began scrapbooking after the birth of my first grandson Evan Matthew 6 1/2 years ago!!!! I fell in love with scrapbooking and have never looked back!!!! We had a second addition to our family 19 months ago, Gavin Joseph and now I have tons of inspiration!!!! My husband is just the best. He helped me to create my creating space and even visits LSS's to shop with me and give me ideas for titles for my pages!!!!!
Scrapbooking is so rewarding to me. It gives me time to sit down and take a breather from life!!!!  I adore looking through my photos and seeing the pics that I have taken! The memories flood back to me and my hopes are, that the family will always have these memories to hold on to the rest of their lives!!!!
I have met so many wonderful ladies both in real life and on the net!!!! The times that we share, whether it is a phone call, Scrapbook Club or Blog visits are so important to me!!!! The friendships, the support and even hours of chatting on the phone about ideas and techniques are so much!!! I think we can all use a little more FUN in our lives. I always look for the simple things in life that bring a smile to my face!
I want to thank you at Crop Suey for this wonderful opportunity!!! I am so excited about spending time with all of you!!!!!  Let's make this Month of May a great experience for all of us!!!!!!
As you many know by visiting my Blog, my Faith, my Family and my Love for Life are so very important to me!!!! Please feel free to stop by and share what is most important to you!!!!!
As always, love ya girlies!!!!!

Isn't she FABULOUS?
I was so happy when I woke up this morning 
to see her first layout done with the 5 ALIVE kit
It is gorgeous.. Jocelyn you are amazing, 

In honor of Mother's day this Sunday she created this layout as a tribute to her Mom.
What a great idea... and what a beautiful page.
You have inspired me to make a tribute to my Mom this week.
We are so glad to have Jocelyn as a part of our little family,
so lets leave her some love and welcome her here!
