SISTER Sunday - October 21

Please welcome our newest sister, Vanessa (Nessa) Colant!

Vanessa lives with her family in Belgium.

Tell us about your family: I’m a stay at home mummy, I live with my man since 2002. We have 2 children . The first one is named Matteo and he’s 2 ½ years old. The second one is named Mirko and he’s still a baby - almost 6 months old.

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? I start scrapbooking when I was pregnant for the second time, so in the end of 2006. I discovered scrapbooking when I was pregnant for the first time but I didn’t appreciate it so much. Then I began to read blogs and forums and I really fell in love with this hobby.

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I love showing my emotions, feelings, I love create something with my hands.

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? I try to scrap every day but it’s very difficult with 2 little sons! I often scrapbook when they are sleeping so in the afternoon and in the evening......

How long does it take you to complete a layout? 1 hour

Where do you get your inspiration? My sons, my family and I often read scrapbook blogs.


Take a look at Vanessa's layout for challenge 26 -- a layout with no patterned paper. I love how she used bubble wrap with paint!
