Meet the Design Team - Annie Collins and Bev Code

For the next few days we'll be introducing our new Design Team Members two at a time.  Please be sure to leave them some love below!
First up is Annie Collins.

I am a wife and mother of three, two girls and one boy ranging in age from 7 thru 19. I was born in New York and grew up in New Jersey. I have been living in Florida for 24years now. I enjoy participating in my children’s school activities and have been a teacher’s assistant for many of those years.

I started scrapbooking ten years ago with Creative Memories. I have since changed styles and added to my skills. I love scrapbooking because it lets me combine my passion for photography, art, and family memories.

I am a Fiskars Certified Demonstrator (Fiskateer Crafting Ambassador #1326). I teach people all about Fiskars tools and products. I teach scrapbooking, card making, mini album, and altered items classes. I was teaching classes for Fiskars at AC Moore in Orlando, FL until they closed. I have been published on the Fiskateer site as part of the 3 Fiskateers Team and co-hosted an online crop. I am also part of the Fiskateers CIA team; I have completed the “Boo” mission and will continue to work on other missions as assigned.

I have taught classes at scrapbooking retreats for not only the retreat/store owner, but also for myself as an independent scrapbook consultant. I owned my company as a Top Line Creations Independent Consultant, which allowed me the opportunity to work in the Creating Keepsakes Convention in the Top Line Creations Booth. Although, I do not sell Top Line Creation products any longer I still have a passion for scrapbooking and product promotion. I also design and sell my own line of scrap wear T-shirts.

I have been a teacher’s assistant for various well known scrapbookers in the industry at a Creating Keepsake University.

I am currently not on any design teams. I had to take a short break from scrapbooking and card making to help my ailing Mother-in-law (whom has passed) and my daughter (who is now doing better). I have used this opportunity to continue learning about different techniques, ideas, styles, and how to think out of the box.

I would love to be a part of your design team. I feel I would be an asset to your team because I love sharing, teaching, inspiring others, and promoting scrapbooking. As for my style I would say I am ... the best words that come to mind are eclectic, forward moving, and trendy.
Next up is our fearless leader Bev Code!  We couldn't do all this without her!!! 
Hi my name is Bev Code (admin here and personally posting as beecee)
I started the previous forum Turtle Soup back in May June 2013 and the first design team was up and running for July 2013.
This has been home for myself and all the members that follow us. We create and share together along with supporting each other in everyday life. This is what makes it home.
Thanks to all that join us.. any questions there usually is someone around to help you out.
Welcome to our new home Creative Inspiration.
on a personal note:
I was new to online scrapping since Apr 2009. There were so many amazing sites that were my learning curve to this amazing world of scrapbooking. I am a wife, mother and gramma that loves being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart's content. I love scrapbooking along with fun things it entails with online friends, forums and FB. The learning process has been interesting and creative also. Other crafts I love also are needlepoint, sewing, knitting, crochet and taking lots of photos. Family and friends are the subjects of my scrapping along with nature, ancestry and vacation sites. My DH and I live  in Kitchener, Ontario in a brand new home we had built.We spend some time in Florida where I take my scrapping with me for the extended time.
