Cindy Rold

I have been scrapbooking since I was a child, using (gasp) construction paper, glue, tape, and pens. At one point in elementary school, I acquired a 12 x 15 bright orange album that was only for memorabilia. Photos went in different albums. I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2005 and have never looked back. I know it was 2005, because I still have an unfinished traditional album from that year. I love the versatility of Artisan and all that it allows me to do with my photos, papers, and embellishments. I live in Colorado and am a doting aunt to nine nieces and nephews and four great-nieces and nephews. They are often the subject of my scrapbooking pages. Travel is another passion that is frequently featured in my pages. I had traveled to all 50 states in the U.S. before I was 30 and have been to over 60 countries on six continents.
