SISTER Sunday - Nov. 9th

Welcome to the Sisterhood, Liz!

Tell us about your family: I met my husband, Josh, right after high school and we married a few months later. We've been married for 10 wonderful years. We have 4 children: Makenzie is 9, Sidney is 8, Parker is 4 and Mason is almost 2. I am a stay at home mom. (The busiest job ever). But I love it. I adore my family.

Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking? Soon after my first daughter was born I was strolling through a craft store when I spotted the scrapbook aisle. I walked down the aisle and thought it was such a great idea since I had tons of pictures of my new baby all over the place. I have been hooked ever since.

Does anyone in your family also scrap? I have sister-in-laws who scrap. I never could get my own sister or mother into it.

What size do you normally scrap? I started out doing the 81/2 x 11 until almost everything was converted into the 12x12. Now that's all I do.

What is your favourite colour scheme? I noticed I use a lot of green, blue and brown. But I usually try to match the paper to the photo.

How many hours a week do you scrap? Every chance I get. That's about 4 hours a week.

What is one thing you always find yourself reaching for when creating a layout? I use my cricut on almost every layout. I also use a lot of inking. (Color Box liquid chalk is my favorite. It doesn't get all over your hands).

Describe your scrapping style in just three words. Clean, neat, cute (because I scrap my kids)
