Hi. My name is Marion Vagg and I am a gal who just loves collecting and playing with paper…and have loved doing so for as long as I can remember. I live on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales in Australia. I am married to a very understanding and supportive man and I have two kiddos aged 5 and 2. I am a Primary School Teacher and work two days a week, job sharing on a Year 3 class. I love to make cards and usually craft at night after my kids are in bed. I am honoured to be a guest designer here at CAS-ual Fridays.
