I met up with the local Salem Digital Photography Group to take pictures of some parkour athletes. Most of the athletes came down from Portland. However, one of the athletes, Corey Jones is from the Salem area. He is the one the one in the blue shirt in the photos. Cory is starting up parkour training in Salem in hopes of getting the sport to come to Salem, as well as just a fun way to work out.

Carol Conkey – Scrapbooker – Amity, Oregon

My mother loves taking photos and growing up its hard to remember her without her SLR. Something else I remember is that she was always doing some sort of arts and crafts, whether it was making 3D paper turkeys for Thanksgiving or volunteering her time at the local middle school making paper books with the students. As time went on and I moved away from home she really got into scrapbooking.

When I say really got into it, she REALLY got into it. She had her husband make a place for her to scrap as well as room that she could invite a couple other people to scrap at. She calls it “The scrap shack”. I caught her setting up some pages from her granddaughter’s birthday to be put in her scrapbook album.

Carol is a Creative Memories Consultant and has many items in stock. She has some discontinued paper and products at discounted prices, paper punches to use and to buy. Are you in the Amity area and want to scrap? Here is a link to her Creative Memories website.
