July Guest Designer

 5 Random Things About Me:

1. I love monte cristo sandwiches. 2. someday I will live in Santa Cruz 3. I love watching adventure time (cartoon). 4.My fav colors are Mint green and pink.  5. I am obsessed with pinterest.

I'm Most Creative When:
 I don't have a set time. Usually when I cant do anything, that is when the bug bites me. :)

***Here are pictures of Marie's "girl cave". I've seen it in person...and it's every creative person's DREAM!

I LOOOOOVE her vintage lockers:

Why I started Scrapbooking:
I started scrapbooking 8 years ago. My MIL passed away and I wanted to create a book for my younger children. She was so wonderful and I truly felt they were robbed of knowing her. I didn't want just pictures I wanted to tell the story of her. Scrapbooking just made sense.
What is Your Favorite Childhood Memory:

My fav childhood memory would have to be the crafts my mom did with me. She taught me how to embroider, paint, draw, cook...She also use to make a lot of my Halloween costumes. I loved that. She is where I get my creativity from. 
My Favorite Technique:
Right now I am really in love with inking the edges of my paper. It just seems to make things pop. It is really old school but i just started doing it again.

My Favorite Song/Tv/Movie at the Moment:
I don't have just one song but the bands I have been on constant play are Adele, Mumford and sons, black keys and Regina spektor.
Walking dead is my fav tv show and I cant wait for the new season to start.
My Favorite past time:
 Anything with the kids. I just like to watch them grow. When I am not doing that I love to go to thrift stores and Flea markets. My own personal treasure hunt. 

I have had the pleasure of meeting Marie in person and she has to be one of the most sweetest ladies I've ever known! I've always loved her work, since she was a member of SISTV. So it was a bit of a shock to meet her in person and to have her help us out. 
Well...lets move on to Marie's AWESOME work. If you would love to see more of her work, please visit her blog (Warning: she has music...don't want to scare you, as I was the first time. lol) Marie used our A Camping We Will Go collection.
Here is a beautiful camping mini album she created:

I love how she added burlap to her album!

Hope you enjoyed her work as much as we did. Thank you Marie!!!
