Thanks for dropping by and viewing my blog. I'd love for you to leave me a comment that you visited.
I started scrapbooking in late 2003. A Creative Memories gift voucher from my parents started me off. They thought it was something I'd like ... and it was! Since then, I have had over 100 pieces of work published (layouts and articles) in most of the Australian Magazines as well as a layouts accepted by Scrapbook Answers (US), Scrapbooks Etc.(US) and Simple Scrapbooks (US). I'm proud to have received Honorable Mentions for the past 3 years with Scrapbooking Memories - 1 single layout, 1 double layout and 2 off the page items. I was an active member of Serendipity Scrapbooks Design Team - my local store - up until their closing in mid November 2007. I create layouts mostly about my family and the moments in our daily life. I find inspiration everywhere. From TV ads, magazines, fashion and the beautiful papers that I use. Sometimes a layout just happens - that's a great feeling. Of course I'm also inspired by other artists. I scrap anytime my children are asleep, mainly at the kitchen table in the company of my husband. It's great to throw ideas his way - I get a different perspective. My style tends to be fairly clean in design, focusing strongly on the photograph. I enjoy graphic, modern, crisp pages and I love 'white space'. I definately scrap for me. It's a great creative outlet and it brings balance to my life. It's a wonderful way to preserve a memory for both myself and my children ... and their children.
