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

Creative Memories Showcase Convention


Last Weekend was CM's Regional Showcase. This is where they release all sorts of new products, revisions, and give all the big news! I wasn't able to make it this year, but I have been scouring the Internet for any info I can find. I will be going to a post-showcase lunch meeting tomorrow, where I will get the scoop.

The most exciting is the Storybook Creator Upgrade to Storybook 3.0!!! I have been keeping a huge secret. I have been on the beta testing group for a month or so using and playing with this version!!! Amazing!!!!

New Features include....text wrapping, extra matting features, more precise cutting tools, which includes a tearing tool! Direct upload to facebook! Viewing pages side by side! The list goes on!.... expect a more detailed post later this week about all things NEW!!!
