SISTER Sunday - June 7th

You've seen our new sister -- now let's learn a bit about her :-)

Candace Robichaud

Tell us about your family: I have two kidlets, Tayla (4 years old) & River (2 years old). I was lucky enough to marry my best friend, Ray and have loved & cherished him for over 5 years. We own our own nationwide business, and successfully run it almost all by ourselves. I am in charge of putting together a 32 page monthly publication, and do all the design work myself. It is alot of work and definitley takes away from my scrappin time, but a girl's gotta earn a living I suppose.

Who/What inspired you to start scrapbooking?
I would have to say my Son River. When he was 3 months old I saw an album kit at Walmart and thought hey that's kinda cute....I had no idea what I was getting myself into! It's been almost 3 years since I started, and I have been published 5 times in Canadian Scrapbooker, been on 3 design teams, and started my own monthly Scrap group for fun that has grown to almost 40 talented, amazing, couldn't live without them ladies. I am so grateful for Scrapbooking!

Does anyone in your family also scrap? No one, I am the only crazy one that gets giddy with delight at family events if there is cute napkins or wrapping paper I can take home to scrap. lol.

What size do you normally scrap? Usually 12x12 and I totally dig mini albums.

What is your favourite colour scheme? Does rainbow count? I like bright bold colors usually. Hot pink, turquoise, and yellow = happiness.

How many hours a week do you scrap? Not enough. probably around 4-5 hours :( However I try and go to crops every 2 or 3 months, plus have my monthly night with my fabulous ladies!

What is one thing you always find yourself reaching for when creating a layout? My Labeller, Staples, and Thickers.

Describe your scrapping style in just three words. Fun, Un-traditional, and Modern
