I live in South Carolina and am married to the most wonderful man, my soul mate Wayne. Together we have 4 daughters and 5 wonderful grandchildren. I have been addicted to PSP and tagging for 7 years. I love to bowl, read, scrapbook & watch movies. And I am addicted to Pinterest. Here I will be displaying some of my creations. I hope you enjoy your visit!
