I know there are lots of you in "internet land" that don't have sisters. This is one of the reasons we started this blog -- to be "sisters" to those without, and also to be encouragers to those that share the same interest as we do. I think I can speak on behalf of Deanne and Susan when I say that all of our internet sisters have been an encouragement and a blessing to us as well!!
How long have you been scrapbooking? 5 years now. I started scrapbooking in the Spring of 2003 but it is only in the past year that I have discovered my scrapping style & got into scrapbooking in a BIG way.
What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I love journaling and knowing that precious memories and stories are recorded forever in my layouts. I also like recording special relationships & details of the things that mean the most to me.
How many hours a week do you scrapbook? About 20 hours.
How long does it take you to complete a layout? 3 hours on average, but could be anything from 1 hour to a couple of days if I leave a layout & come back to it. I’m really indecisive so can stand for ages pushing bits of paper & embellishments around before sticking anything down.
Where do you get your inspiration? Blogs and magazines mainly. I sometimes browse online galleries or treat myself to a new book.
Describe your scrap space. Do you like/dislike it? My bedroom doubles up as my scrapbook studio. I really like spending time in there. I have an area for uni work at a desk under my bed and the rest of the room is dedicated to scrapbooking. I have a drawing board where I stand to scrap and a large wall unit to store 5 years worth of stash. I have a high sleeper bed which allows for more floor space to spread everything out
Here is Lynn's layout for Challenge 56:
"This is my LO taking inspiration from a holiday celebrated on my Mum's Birthday - The International Day of Radiant Peace. As her name is Irene, which also means peace, I thought this theme would be for a LO. The Chinese symbol on the ribbon and die-cut means water which is also fitting with the birthday theme as her star sign is Aquarius, the water carrier."
Drop by tomorrow when we reveal our next challenge and our sponsor for JUNE! Great stuff, ladies! You won't want to miss it!
