Meet Candice and Pamela!!

I'm excited to show you the two projects that these awesome gals created!!

Meet: Candice McLean
Candice McLean - Quantico, VA
Candice has been in love with the arts since a young child. Her father and grandfather are both self taught artists and her grandmother was a passionate craft artisan. Having the many influences helped nurture her love and passion for all kinds of art.

Candice began her study of art in high school... taking several fine art and photography classes. She continued her undergraduate studies at VCU (Richmond, VA) then later studied at Mira Costa College (Oceanside, CA) and finally received a BFA in Graphic Design from Laguna College of Art and Design (Laguna Beach, CA).
In 1999 after the birth of her first child, Candice began scrapbooking. Falling in love with the paper craft, she applied for a design team position at a local scrapbook store and then became involved with leading manufacturer's within the scrapbook industry. She has designed scrapbook products for the industry, has been featured in several publications, and she has designed and taught workshops throughout the southern CA area.
Candice describes her style as eclectic and continually evolving. She loves shabby chic, a little country grunge and clean modern lines. Whether behind a camera, computer, sewing machine or paint brush, she loves to experiment with various textures, lighting and mediums.
Here's the project she created.

Meet: Pamela Young
Hello! My name is Pamela Young, and am thrilled and honored to be a part of the Punky Sprouts team! I absolutely LOVE scrapbooking. It is a way of life for me. :) I love doing mini albums, and I REALLY love how Punky Sprouts' albums mix canvas, acrylic and chipboard! My style keeps evolving. I love to try new things. People have told me that they will see something by me and know it is mine before reading who did it. So I must have the "Pamela" style. :) I have been published in several different magazines (Cards, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbooks and Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, and Scrapbook Trends). Currently I am also designing for My Little Shoebox and Tattered Angels, and I write for ScrapStreet magazine. I keep an updated blog at ;
I live in the very beautiful state of Colorado. I am a SAHM to two wild boys, ages 7 and 5, and a 1 yr. old baby girl. They grow up so fast. I am enjoying life right now, even though it can get a bit chaotic. I have a wonderful husband who is supportive of my crafting obsession. We have been married for 10 years. Family plays a big part in my life.
