Sketches! Design Team Spotlight: Riley Fitzgerald

I want to apologize to Riley for missing uploading her spotlight this past Wednesday. With my computer broken, I am relying on my husbands lap top, which hasn't been home much this week. So I have chosen to spotlight her today. Thanks for your patience Riley!
I am excited to announce that this weeks Sketches! Design Team Spotlight is:

Riley Fitzgerald

Hi, my name is Riley Fitzgerald and I have really enjoyed being on the card sketch design team! I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost two years and we live in Roanoke, Virginia. I own a dance studio and I am so lucky that my job is something I love and something I have been doing since I was 3 years old. I teach a majority of the classes, but I do have three wonderful additional instructors that teach as well! When I am not stamping or dancing, you can find me (currently) reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer! I also enjoy surfing the web, hanging out with my husband, and shopping!

My journey into paper crafting started when I was in 9th grade. We had taken a school trip to Canada for spring break and I had a lot of pictures I wanted to do SOMETHING with, so my mom bought me a scrapbooking kit. Since then I have done several scrapbooks and still currently scrap events my dance studio does. My main focus for the past two years has been rubber stamping and card making. I think it's because I can whip out a card pretty fast where as scrapbooking, it takes me a lot longer!

Riley's favorite Card she has made since being on the Sketches! Design Team was using Card Sketch #60.

And here is her card using that sketch.

What a gorgeous card. It's nice that your mom introduced you to the craft at a young age. I have my granddaughter stamping with me - she's 3.

Anyway, great card & best of luck to you.
