Shanna grew up in a small mining town in Idaho called Mullan and continues to call herself a small town girl. Shanna met her future husband Jim in the third grade when he moved to that same small town. Many years later they married and relocated to Western Washington to pursue big city jobs. She currently lives in Auburn, WA, works at a giant coffee company as a Data Governance Manager. Her and Jim have now been married for more than 30 years. They are the proud parents of a smart and beautiful daughter Hailey who is all grown up and living several hours away. She is often the subject of Shanna’s scrapbook layouts.
In 2015 Shanna decided to break out of her comfort zone and pursue her dream of joining a scrapbook design team. Starting a blog was the first step in that process. Since then she has joined two creative teams including Stick It Down and is on the Creative Team for Get It Scrapped. In 2017 she launched her first class at Big Picture Classes called Get Ready For A Getaway.
When Shanna is not scrapbooking she is probably drinking coffee, taking photos, or searching for vintage treasures.
