Welcome Niki!!!

Now some of you may have already noticed that there is an addition to our list of Divas on the sidebar there!! We are thrilled to announce that Niki Estes has joined our little team and we are over the moon to have her!!!

Niki lives in Oregon with her two kids and husband and has been papercrafting for about eight years now. She started out scrapbooking and has only been stamping for a little over a year! Hard to believe, right??

Niki is also on Design Teams for Hanna Stamps and Papertrey Inc. and says that she has been dreaming about joining us here at High Hopes since she first laid eyes on the adorable images last spring. She is downright excited to work with Tina, Crissy and our amazing group of Divas!! And we're just as excited to play with you too, Niki!!

Say hello to Niki here and be sure to check out her blog, My Paper Creations!!!
