SISTER Sunday - July 27th

Good Morning, everybody! Are you ready for our new sister?!?

JJ Sobey, from Montreal.

Tell us about your family: My husband André and I have been married for nearly 7 years. We were married in a costumed, Renaissance wedding! We have a 3 year old boy named Liam, and his baby sister is due in August. I can't wait to have a daughter - it will be so nice to experience being a mother to a boy AND a girl. (And I can't wait to not be pregnant - I feel like a beached whale, LOL!). I'm an accountant in my day-job, although I'm starting my maternity leave now. My real dream job would be SAHM.

Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking? My boy! I found that I was starting to forget details so easily after he was born, and I wanted to remember everything, so scrapbooking was a great solution. I had resisted the hobby for many years, because I know how much I like nice paper (I could easily spend hours in a stationary store!). I knew it would be addicting/consuming, and I wasn't far wrong.

Does anyone in your family also scrap? My sister digi-scraps, and a couple of my cousins paper scrap, so it's fun to share LO's back and forth.

What size do you normally scrap? 12x12 (but I like to dabble in other formats)

What is your favourite colour scheme? Right now? Pale blue with chocolate brown. But I suspect that will change to pink in a few short weeks, LOL!

How many hours a week do you scrap? When I'm NOT pregnant? Probably 12-16 hours a week. Now that I'm preggo, and short on energy, I mostly scrap on Friday nights.

What is one thing you always find yourself reaching for when creating a layout? Lately it's been buttons. I have a hard time doing a LO without them. I'm also quite addicted to Fancy Pants felt these days.

Describe your scrapping style in just three words. Eclectic, changes daily. :)
