SISTER of the Week {June 24-30}

We have a new SISTER!! Please welcome Tina McDonald :-)

Here is Tina's layout for Week 9

Tina is from Wickham, New Brunswick.
Tell us about your family:
I am a SAHM of three beautiful children! Jasmine is 4, Sammy turns 2 this week, and Camden is 4 months! I have an amazing Husband of 7 years who supports my addiction to scrapping, even though he doesn’t always “get it”! We live out in the country and love it!!
How/Why did you start scrapbooking?
I started scrapping about 3 ½ years ago after admiring the albums of a friend of mine. I was amazed at how beautiful they were! So, after some time, I bought a few things myself and gave it a go! It was frustrating and discouraging… until I was blessed to get a cutter for Christmas! THANKS MOM!! Now I am hopelessly addicted! And loving every minute!

How long have you been scrapbooking? 3 ½ yrs

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love?
I love that it is something that I get to do for me! It is my passion, my escape from reality and my sanity! At the same time, it is also my way of showing my children just how loved and cherished they are! They will never forget… even though I may not always be around to remind them!

How many hours a week do you scrapbook?
Depends on the week! In the winter and fall, probably around 8 hrs or more a week. In the summer, probably about half of that… and some weeks even less! But I do go thru withdrawl when I’m away to long!

How long does it take you to complete a layout?
It varies BIG time! Anywhere from 1 hr to 3 days! It just depends on how long the munchkins will allow me to scrap! It’s nice to be able to leave it out and drop in on it once in a while to do a little more. But I prefer to get it done in 1 shot!
Where do you get your inspiration?
New products and freshly printed photo’s always get me in the mood to scrap! When I hit a dead end or the mojo fails, I go to the online galleries where I am always inspired by the amazing talent of my fellow scrappers!
We'll be seeing more from Tina during the next week!
