My name is Shannon "Dabling" hence the title :) I am a mother of 3, stay at home mom, Creative Memories Consultant, and photographer. I have been a consultant twice so far, and have had my home photography studio for 7 years.

My goal for the year 2010 is to "Focus on Photos" and my mission is to help others with the same goal.

I love what I do and have met the most wonderful people through both of my business's. I hope that I can continue helping others.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have any additional questions my email is

True 12x12 albums

Yes it's true! Creative Memories is re-inventing their album sizes! To meet demand and to keep up with the industry they are resizing their albums to a true 12x12. No more cropping! There albums are now more universal then ever! What does that mean for all the other albums....well whatever albums you have sitting on your shelves with the intention of finishing an album project all you need to make sure you have enough page refills (each album hold a total of 3) and page protectors too. Creative Memories has committed to keep making those products for an ample amount of time (18 months) to give us all enough time to buy the supplies we need.
