Hello friends! Aly Dosdall here, thankful for another year as Social Media Marketing Manager for We R Memory Keepers. I’ve shared a few fun facts about myself below.
I believe that life is worth celebrating and documenting! Using the art of paper crafts to do that is my passion. I love spending time with my family + fur baby, running, singing, watching Netflix, teaching paper craft classes, and blogging.

We’re so happy to have Soraya Maes on our design team! Get to know more about her and then check out her work by clicking the links below.
Hi everyone, my name is Soraya Maes, I’m a 37 year-old-mom and wife living in the French Riviera, Southern France. I started scrapbooking in 2005 when I discovered some layouts and techniques through blogs and videos… this is how I’ve been hooked! But scrapbooking has always been a part of me since I started documenting my everyday life and special moments in notebooks when I was 11. This is probably why I love journaling so much! Now I’m a lucky full-time scrapbooker and I love it!
I’m so excited to live another fantastic year as a We R Memory Keepers DT member!
