We have another fabulous Designer to share with you this week... Sarah! Sarah is talented in everything she does but her layouts make me swoon! She has an amazing eye for colors, layers and patterns!

5 Fun Facts about Sarah...

More About Sarah....

I thought that it would be fun to share with you how I first became interested in this amazing hobby/lifestyle. Around 7 years ago my son was got a bad infection in his leg and was hospitalised for quite a long time. Of course hospital is not the most exciting place for a 9-year old boy (or his mother) and I was looking for something that we could do together to help pass the long hours. One of the nurses handed me a pile of old magazines to read and somewhere in the middle was a copy of ‘Scrapbooking Memories’. As I turned the pages I got more and more excited. Right there and then my obsession was created. Over the next week Adam (with a little help from me) made an album of his hospital experience. We had so much fun working on it together and I treasure that little book to this day.
 Now, more than 7 years later, I scrap almost every day, I am on several design teams  have been published many times at home and overseas.  I still love this craft and cannot imagine life now without my photographs and memories.  Scrapping has become more than a hobby for me it is a lifestyle.

Got to say that you look way too young to have those older boys, you must have started when you were 12. ♥
