I’m Chris, one of the three co-owners of Created with Love Challenges. I have been crafting since the summer I turned 12. I had visited my Aunt Betty and picked up her love of all things crafting. That fall I started sewing lessons. Dawn and Lisa introduced me to me scrapbooking and the Cricut. Since then, I have been making cards, scrapbook pages and ATCs.
I have been married to Larry for almost 11 years. Between us we have 4 children. Our oldest is TJ and he is married to Lisa and they have our first granddaughter. Katie attends Western Virginia Community College with plans to transfer to Liberty University to get a degree as a teacher. Kelly attends Auburn University and is working towards a degree in Business. Kevin will be attending Western Virginia Community College and plans to transfer to Radford University to get a degree as a RN.
Hello, my name is Dawn, I am one of the 3 Co-Owners of Created With Love Challenges. I love crafting and getting together with my craft friends to craft or just chat!!! I am also on the Digi Darla Design Team, which was my first try at a DT and I love it! I was promoted to the Sponsorship Coordinator for Digi Darla in March of 2012 and have meet a lot of you via that venture in my life!
I am married for 24 1/2 yrs to my soul mate and will celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary on Nov 27 2012. We have 2 grown children, the youngest is Married and has our very first Grandson! He is the light of our life, and is 16 mo old.
I reside in Bedford VA, the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I am originally from upstate NY (Utica) Married my sweetheart in NY in 1987 and moved to Kissimmee, FL in 1990 after the birth of our second son. We moved to Virginia in 2004 and have live here since!
I have always loved crafting of some sort. I get that bug from my mother who is always trying something new in crafting, from making life size Santa and Mrs Claus at Christmas time from scrap materials to her homemade Christmas tree ornaments and cards all year...I started with Plastic canvas when it was all the rave and then moved to counted cross stitching and made a lot of beautiful gifts with that craft.
Then I moved to scrap booking with the shove I needed to get into it from my cousin and friend LisaO (also a Co-Owner here at CWLC) then from there its been all uphill to the fab card creations I do now.
