October's Member of the Month

Hello and good morning...

I'd like to introduce you to our wonderful member of the month from our My Scraps & More forum....... She is BERTA!!!! She's been a very supportive member of the board who is had been playing along with the challenges regularly and such a delight on the forum, and a real sweetheart.


Hi!  My name is Berta Ramsey and I come from a small rural community in Northern California.  I am a mom to 5,  grandma to 8, and great-grandma to 1.  I've been married to my sweetheart for 46 years.  I'm a retired child care provider (35 years), a breast cancer survivor (8 years), and a chocoholic.  I love camping and exploring beaches and lighthouses.  My other hobbies include needlecrafts.

I started keeping scrapbooks when I was a teenager but I discovered 'acid free' products in the late 1990s.  That's when I started this kind of scrapping.  I was introduced to online scrapping when my daughter-in-law started a kit club of her own in 2004. 

I'm not sure I really have a scrapbooking 'style'.  But I love to add ink, faux stitching, butterflies and flowers to most of my pages.  I'm also partial to soft colors.  My favorite technique is scraplifting.  My greatest inspiration for LOs is my family.  However, I love to scrap just about anything including pets and nature.

You can check out Berta's wonderful creations on her blog at: www.bertaramsey.blogspot.com

 Thanks Berta soooo much for being a wonderful addition to the My Scraps & More forum family...
