Brittny Lejeune - Design Team Member

Hi! I'm Brittny, but Britt's easier, so we'll just stick with that, mkay? I'm 25, live in Vacaville, California with my ball and chain Eric and Izzy, my way-too-much-like-a-dog cat. We're a shabby little bunch, but we get by!

I went to Cal Poly SLO and have my Bachelors in Landscape Architecture and a minor in Horticulture. When I graduated I decided that scrapbooking would just be so much more fun and conveniently, the job market agreed with me. I sort of stumbled into a job as a sales rep for several scrapbooking and stamping companies.I've been doing that for the last six months or so, and am loving it!

My favorite manufacturer is Cosmo Cricket, I can't stand the word hokey pokey, and I consider chocolate to be a much better cure for depression than any therapist could ever be. I watch reruns of Dawson's Creek on dvd, am slightly obsessive compulsive, and if I had to eat one food for every meal for the rest of my life it would be Panang Curry with beef. Oooooh yum!

I started scrapbooking about 5 years ago. My mom had converted my old bedroom into her scrapping room and began to build up a massive amount of supplies. BUT she just couldn't get started. She said that she needed to have all the tools that she would need before she could start because what if she got halfway through a page and realized that she needed something she didn't have!?! I took that as a blatant challenge. So I began to put layouts together. Layouts on 8.5x11 paper, with Jolee's stickers and dotty alphabet stamps and deckle-edged scissors. Eesh.... I soon realized that I definitely wanted to pursue this in any way that I could.
