The only cast member tough enough to wear her famously adorable high heels as she walked CHA this winter, Melissa brings that same style and grace to her scrapbook pages. When Melissa isn't working full time, raising her family or participating in charity scrapping events, she can be found working on client's scrapbook albums as part of her second job as a professional scrapper.

Drawing from her fine arts background, Mel frequently hand paints her own scrapbooking paper. She is owner of a scrapbook embellishment company and is mostly known on set for her dry sense of humor that has, on occasion, caused production delays while the crew composes themselves from laughing with her.

A Mojo Room chat with Teresa Collins

Have a look here for some interesting answers from Teresa Collins to questions asked by Michelle about her "MOJO".

Teresa altered a clip board - here is what she had to say about it and here are som awesome pics too!

"*created for the MOJO ROOM- Noteworthy Clipboard- designed 9/1/2007
Photos above.....
Designed in less than 30 minutes today. I loved the photo of my friend Tammy’s little girl, Ashley. I was instantly inspired by the PINK in the photo. The photo inspired me to create a very girly girl clipboard- clipboard available at the .99 cent store…(cool clear frame that I altered and blinged up!!!!) I got out a few of my fave things and created a little something fun. I love the pink elements and the *feel* of the page. If you see the cool black A- that is my from my latest GLITTERZ line. I added the black Glitterz to go with the Whimsical Halloween line. I find I never limit myself- my style is consistent in that I love girl elements, hence the bling, I love simple but go for EYE CANDY. I love to add BLACK into my work- I painted around the edges of the clipboard, photo, etc. Also, I’m a huge fan of stamps. The perfect accent for easy journaling. *also, under the photo is a black file folder with hidden journaling. LOVE the added REAL ESTATE!!!!!

I also, really do not limit myself to what I can and cannot do- there is no rules! *okay- don’t tell my college professors this!!!!* So if you have any clipboards hanging around, maybe you’ll feel a little MOJO to create something too."
