Enjoy the reveal ;-)

Hi I'm Sherri Funk, from Manitoba, Canada. I am a married to the sweetest guy I know, and together we have three girls. It has been 6 years since I discovered the art of documenting my family's story with pretty paper. I love the power of story and believe that we all have one worth leaving behind for future generations. The death of my mom 11 years ago, helped affirm to me how important this hobby is. There was so much I had yet to discover about her when she passed away.

Scrapping is a way for me to ensure my girls have access to the real me: the mother, the wife, the friend. This fun, and fulfilling hobby is a wonderful way to document our real life story, from the big events like our recent trip to Disney World, to the everyday blessings like a wonderful meal shared with friends. I believe there is no better way to capture and document one's story.

When I'm not scrapping I can be found singing in the band at my church, volunteering in my girls' school, working one day a week at my LSS, dancing in an Adult Competitive Tap Class, or designing for an on-line challenge site among other things. You can find me at http://faithandscraphappiness.blogspot.com/ I want to extend a huge thank you to Kristine and her team for inviting me to join them this week, it was truly an honor.
