SISTER Sunday - May 18th

Please help us welcome our newest sister --
Shannon Wyman!!


Tell us about your family: I have been married to my husband Shawn for 8 years this month, and have two beautiful children; Emilee and Connor. We also have a new addition to our family as of a few months ago... our Boxer, Teddy!

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? My introduction to scrapbooking was a Creative Memories home party. I was hooked immediately!
How long have you been scrapbooking? Just over 7 years now.

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I love the idea of doing something more with my photos, and the whole 'creative' process. I also love the instant gratification scrapbooking provides. Creativity without boundaries... what's not to love!?!?

How many hours a week do you scrapbook? About 8 hours, sometimes more.

How long does it take you to complete a layout? On average it takes me about an hour to do a layout. It really depends on how well the mojo's flowing!

Where do you get your inspiration? Oh wow, good question! Just about everywhere it seems, lol. Decorating magazines, clothing, and sketch blogs are a huge source of inspiration for me.

Shannon submitted this layout for our "open call" --

I love how she used the softer colors in the patterned paper, but then used such bright photos! Looks fabulous!
