Today we are introducing Heather Kaesgen!

My name is Heather Kaesgen; I am a proud stay at home mom of 2 boys Parker (13) & Hayden (8). They keep me very busy with all of their activities. You can find us at a baseball field 6 nights a week from April – August. Thank God I love baseball! I have been married almost 15 years to the greatest husband and father I could have ever of wished for. I am very blessed to be able to stay at home and play in my craft room daily.  I am always making something. Whether it is for a party, a card, for the house or scrapbooking, I always have a project in the works. My passion is scrapbooking; there is nothing more precious than to see your family on a beautifully decorated page. We LOVE to travel as a family.  We spent 3 weeks in Europe last summer – can you imagine those pictures!? My favorite place in the world is Paris (and the Outer Banks and Disney and Out West, get it LOVE to travel). We are starting a lofty goal of visiting every Major League Ballpark, all 32 of them, in the next 5 years! Did I mention we LOVE baseball. I can’t wait to start that scrapbook!

And about Heather’s layout…she is passionate about traveling so that is what she created for you today! A layout about her travels:

I loved picking one thing that I totally love and doing an entire page on it!  As it says I am obsessed with the Eiffel Tower. I have been to the top, spent hours up there and have many, many pictures of it. I used hues of brown with a hint of blue. Very French! My personality is a lot like my crafting, some days it is Classic, Timeless and Simple. Other days it is Colorful, Sassy and Crazy. Obviously you see what mood I was in, how could you not… it is PARIS.  Every piece of paper used was Core’dinations. It is so versatile! I love to emboss and then sand. I can’t get enough of it! Enjoy and Au revoir.
