Good Morning, all!
Please help us welcome our newest sister -- Amber Curtis!
Tell us about your family: I have been married to my fantastic husband and best friend who indulges my scrapping obsession for 16years and we have three beautiful kids ages 15, 13 and 6 who inspire my creations. We also have 3 dogs that from time to time creep into a layout or two.
How/Why did you start scrapbooking? I took a trip to Utah when my daughter was 2 years old and my husband's aunt had this neat scrapbook room. She told me about this little local store that I had to check out before we left. About a hundred dollars later I left with several bags of goodies since we didn't have these stores in Arizona. I've always scrapped in one sort or another though. I have scrapbooks from high school that I am carefully removing items from so I can make them a little more acid free.
How long have you been scrapbooking? I joined the current trend about 13 years ago and joined the online world of scrapbooking about 4 years ago.
What is it about scrapbooking that you really love? I love the colors and patterns. I love playing with paper and "glue". I love that my 6 year old goes through the books and finds such joy in the memories I've put on paper.
How many hours a week do you scrapbook? On a really good week I would say about 6 - 8 but there are weeks when life is demanding more attention and I only get in a little bit of time.
How long does it take you to complete a layout? Usually around half an hour to an hour. Sometimes though I start a layout and it just isn't coming together so I'll put it aside overnight or even for a few days until inspiration hits me again.
Where do you get your inspiration? Everywhere! TV commercials, printads, magazines, other fabulously talented scrappers and the pictures and events in my life.
Here is Amber's layout for Challenge 57:
