Peggy Morgan (Bringing Scrap bookers & Cardmarker together)

Picture to the left is Peggy to the left and her daughter Shey-lynne on the right. Shey-Lynne won an award for her layout at the Gulf Coast Scrappers.

I first met Peggy a few years ago, at Michael’s (the one on Clearview), she was handing out flyers for a crop that was being held at St. Anthony’s, the next time our path crossed was at Gulf Coast Scrappers, she was my tablemate. Ever since I have been meeting up with her once a month at the Scrapbook Cottage. We later found out that we grew up a block from each other and did not know it.

Peggy, has been scrap booking for 10 wonderful years. She has been a consulant for Creative Memories, and she has help organized monthly crops at the Scrapbook Cottage in Harvey, Louisiana. Peggy stumbled upon this wonderful hobby that we call scrap booking - 10 years ago when she was in the process of separating her daughter and son’s photos so she could start albums of their life stories.

She wanted to give to them a special gift about their childhood with thoughts and memories from their mother. One day Diane Haydel (owner of the Scrapbook Cottage) and Peggy went to a craft fair and saw a Creative Memories booth. She was blown away by a page with a silhouette of a pregnant woman and the black and white ultrasound picture inside of the belly. From that day on she was addicted to scrap booking!
Peggy and her 26 year old daughter Shey-Lynne (also addicted to Scrapbooking) are alias Sugar and Spice when they go to Scrapbook events. She has been invited to a couple of Group events with some of the most special and talented ladies she have ever met. Peggy said, “One of the best parts of Scrapbooking is the people I have met through the years. The memories of time spent with my fellow Scrapbook friends are unforgettable and I love them all.”
She has been married to the same man named Charles for 30 years. They have two adult children Mike and Shey-lynne. A beautiful grand daughter, named Trinity age 4. They are a very close family who very much enjoy spending time as a family.
Do you have any other hobbies? My only other hobby is making memories with my grand-daughter. It's funny how Scrapbooking gives me more ideas on how to have fun with her. She is also a 3rd generation Scrapbooker now!!Peggy never considered herself a crafty person until she started Scrapbooking. It has helped her through some tough times. Peggy said, “It's good for my soul !!!”

I was so happy to see that you made Paper Piecing Patty's blog. Don't you feel so special? I know I did when she posted me. You do beautiful work and I am so happy to see that Shey scraps with you and I am sure Trinity will be a pro too. What a great hobby to share and pass through generations. I too find peace and joy in scrapping. How do we get lost in all that paper and glue and surrender our problems if for only a few hours? THAT AMAZES ME!!!! Keep up the beautiful scrapping!!!
