Summer Christiansen – Co-host
Summer loves the challenge of anything new or different that helps her grow as a designer & scrapbooker. She loves to keep her scrapbooking real by documenting more than just the perfect moments. She can often be found on her computer with a diet coke in hand, scrapping the good, bad and uglies of this crazy, beautiful life. She loves camping and hiking with her family, new shoes, having girls nights with amazing friends, pretending that she loves to work out, or carting kids all over the Vegas valley. The art of memory keeping and all its craftiness is what keeps her sane and following down the yellow brick road. Summer is currently a creative team member at Get It Scrapped.
