Sharon Laakkonen is our next JumpStarter. I know Sharon for many years from my work with Prima Marketing as a Prima Educator and we have had the fortune to teach at several events together which was a lot of fun. She always has a friendly word for everyone and is super encouraging – it always feels good to be around her!
Sharon has been involved in the scrapping world for about 10 years. Her designs have been showcased in most of the scrapbook and craft magazines and she has had the wonderful opportunity to contribute artwork to several books, including Prima’s Idea Books released in 2010 & 2012. Teaching classes is one of the most fulfilling aspects of scrapbooking as Sharon loves to share her passion with other like-minded crafters!
Sharon is currently the Global Design & Education Team Coordinator and Media Relations contact for Prima. Sharon also runs Prima’s blogs, contributes content to their Facebook Fan Page & other online media; and teaches lovely Prima projects at events and stores all around the world.
Besides being a wife to Bill, and mom to seven children, Sharon is also a Nana to a sweet little girl, Amariah, that you will often find as the subject of her layouts! Homeschooling, quizzing, and running her youngest three boys around Kentucky take up the rest of her spare time.
