November Guest Designer- Dina Wakley

We are so excited to have the awesome Dina join us this month. The first time I saw her art, I was in awe. She sews & paints like no other!! Lets get to know her better, shall we?

--I love cereal, sometimes I eat it twice a day.
--Right now I have about 150 layouts that I need to sort and put in binders.
--I made 90 art journal pages in one month for one of my online art journaling classes.
--I adore my 3 boys & husband.
--I am allergic to dust, so I use that as excuse to make my boys do the dusting...hee hee.

I used to be a night person, but the older I get the harder it is for me to stay up late and be creative. So now I'm most creative between 10 a.m and 5:00 p.m....and I try to get most of my work done when my kids are at school.
I started scrapbooking in December 1995. For Christmas that year, my mom gave me a binder, a black Zig pen, a package of cardstock, and some Mrs. Grossman's stickers.
My favorite memory is being on my Grandma & Grandpa Maxfield's farm in Altonah, Utah. That farm was like a little piece of heaven to me...and we got to herd the sheep and feed the cows and climb the haystack. I loved it there.
Ink, ink, ink. I adore spray ink and acrylic paint!
My favorite song right now is "Bend Before it Breaks" by Brandi Carlile. My favorite TV show is Top Chef.
A great big thanks to Dina! I was so inspired to use mists and inks after seeing her beautiful art work! If you haven't seen her blog, please do so! She is such a talented scrapbooker! Now on to her pages. You will not believe her awesome-ness, well, yes, you will....lol
