SISTER Sunday - July 22

We want to thank our last eleven sisters for their involvement with our blog. You ladies did an AWESOME job!! THANKS so much!!

Please welcome AMANDA NEWTON as our "Sister of the Week" for July 22-28th!

Amanda is from Ontario, and is married with one son

Here is Amanda's layout for Week 12:
How/Why did you start scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking through Creative Memories but I needed to step of the box because I didn’t feel I could get creative enough…so I starting discovering other companies and embellishments and techniques. Now I’ve taken my creativity and turned it into a part-time business of creating scrapbooks for people and also I make greeting cards.

How long have you been scrapbooking? About nine or ten years now!!!

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I don’t know why this hobby stuck! I’ve always been very creative and my family can attest to that…so I guess I love it because it’s just one more way for me to be creative!

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? Oh at least 15 hours a week!!! More if I have an order to work on.

How long does it take you to complete a layout? Depends on the intricacy of it! I did one the other day using paint and I think I did it in about two hours (including paint drying time!….Thank goodness for acrylic paints!!)

Where do you get your inspiration? Everywhere! I like to look at scrapping magazines and galleries of fellow scrappers but I also like to create unique and original layouts of my own.
