Hi, my name is Monica Washington and I am honored to be a part of Scrapbook Paradise’s team of creative teachers. I am a proud mommy of two boys and a wife to a wonderful husband. I am fortunate to have a career where I spend my day watching the love of learning spark and continue to grow in my 2nd grade students. In 1997 I was officially introduced to scrapbooking and instantly became a scrapaholic! Looking back, though, I realize that I have enjoyed taking photographs and documenting memories since I was in middle school. In 2006 I ventured into teaching scrapbooking classes and have loved it ever since. I enjoy the creative outlet scrapbooking provides while preserving the memories of family and friends. I also cherish all the wonderful people, many of whom I now call friends, that I have met on this creative journey. It is always fun for me to look back and see how my style and techniques have changed over the years but one thing remains the same-my passion for scrapbooking!
