We have a special lady for you to meet this morning. Jean was our very first sister back when we started our blog.
We thought we'd invite her back for a week :-)
Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking? After the death of my Father in 2004 all the old family photos passed down to me. I had been working on my families genealogy for many years and had compiled them all into an album. I thought it would be nice to add some photographs to go along.
Coming across a Scrapbook magazine in the store I thought this would be perfect not only would it add to my family history but it would help to satisfy my urge to create.
Does anyone in your family also scrap? Sadly no one yet , but we do all share a common bond of crafting in different mediums.
What size do you normally scrap? Normally 12 X 12 though I began with 8.5 x11
What is your favourite colour scheme? I don't think I really have one...but I do notice I tend to use abit of red in my layouts. I am drawn to earth colors.
Take a look at Jean's beautiful work in her gallery and also on her blog - Welcome to My Craft World.

Well, we are getting close to the end of the year! Amazing huh!
Our featured sketch artist today is ZARAH!
Here's a little about her:
I am Zarah - a 29 year old Swede. Mother of two - both furry (with a tail) and married to my soul mate Mikael.
My days are spent scrapping, writing, reading, photographing, drawing and... watching movies with my wonderful husband (and the cats. Never underestimate the moviewatchiness of two cuddly cats...! ;)).
I have a weird sense of humour, a big heart and an addiction to coffee...! ;)
I started my sketch blog a while back after my friends kept asking for my sketches. I decided to put them in a place where they could just pick and chose - and that escalated into what it is today. I'm very happy that people seem to enjoy my doodling! :)
Here's Zarah's sketch for you today! Doesn't it look like FUN!!!
Thanks Zarah! If you try it, ladies,let us know! We'd love to see it!!!

Tell us about your favorite layout you have ever completed? My favorite changes all the time, but my current favorite is attached. I recently submitted it to one of Becky Fleck’s blog contests – whether I win or not, I am really happy with the color scheme, the design (based on one of Becky’s sketches) and what it represents!
What do you love the most about scrapping? Absolutely everything – from taking the photos to design to picking the papers and embellishments to journaling to putting it all together!
What do you dislike the most about scrapbooking? Absolutely nothing.
What topic do you find the most difficult to scrap? I don’t really find anything in particular difficult – I use a lot of challenges from various places to get me started if I have a creative block.
Have you ever taught a scrapbooking class? No
Have you ever been published? No – I just submitted my first layout for possible publication a few weeks ago and it is one of my goals for 2009.
What type of camera do you use? Canon Digital Rebel XT
What would be your perfect day? A day on the beach with a good book, my iPod, my husband and daughter and lots of toys!
I can't imagine my life without ...my family.
Tracy sent a BLOG challenge for today. Enjoy!
"The holidays are a time for great memories and I vividly remember so many things about celebrating Christmas when I was a child. My journaling challenge is to write about your favorite childhood memory - whether it is about the holidays or something else, whether you have photos or not!"
