My name is Vicky and I am a scrapbooking addict lol.
I am 44 and have been scrapbooking for 9 years now. I did my first album as a tribute to my late partner and it helped me to heal. These days most of my layouts feature my daughter Katie and my wee granddaughter Lily with a few of my sons who are both in their 20s and seldom let me take photos of them nowadays.
My style is rather eclectic, it all depends on how I feel at the time but I like to use layers and lots of bright happy colours. I also love to use found objects like tags and such like.
I am a stay at home mum, not out of choice but because I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia which makes working pretty difficult but scrapbooking keeps me sane while the kids do their best to drive me insane lol. I live in a little village about 30 minutes out of Nelson city with my elderly but active parents, daughter, 2 sons, a cat and half a dozen sheep lol. There is never a dull moment in our crazy household but its always interesting.
thanks for choosing me Adrienne, I hope everyone has fun with the sketch.
And Vicky's lovely example.
For some added inspiration, guest designer Jessica Toulmin created this lovely layout of her little boy. Says Jessica
"I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right.
The collection used is Crate Paper 'Little Boy Blue' , with Tattered Angels Plain Jane 'Teal' mist (and miscellaneous brads, buttons, alphas, ribbon and thread)."
