Back From My Daycation + May Designer!

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Hi everyone!! I am back from San Diego, I took a little daycation with hubby and all I can say is I had a blast. I had not been anywhere outside of Los Angeles for years, and even though San Diego is only a 2 hour drive away it felt so nice to get away, we had so much fun and I will be sharing with you guys some of the pictures we took, and of course some yummy layouts!! I also wanted to take the opportunity to thank my April designer, Marilyn Rivera, and also I am introducing my May Designer; Diana Joy!! Let's get to know her a little better:

1. “How did you get started in scrapbooking?”  I purchased a Scrapbooking magazine in late 2003 and read it cover to cover. I decided I was going to try ‘it’ with some photos I knew I would have from a trip planned to Italy in early 2004. That spring I bought my first supplies and got started on an album. I've been hooked since.  
2.“What inspires you?” I am inspired by color, simple design lines, small details and nature.
3. “When do you find time to scrap?” That is easier now that I am retired (woohoo). My most creative time, though, is in the a.m. I love to roll out of bed and head straight to my scrap room. 
4. “What is your favorite scrappy brand?”: My Little Bicycle. I love their papers, embellishments and they have the best striped paper around. I also like K&Company.
5. “What is something about you most people don’t know?”  I owned a successful Cake Decorating business for 6 years.

Thank You Diana for sharing a little about you, and I am so happy to have you on my blog for this month, wow not only are you a great crafter but you had a cake business!! So fun! We will be seeing Diana's first layout soon, so stay tuned for that. Meanwhile I wanted to share a fun card I made to thank someone (you know who you are), take a look:

Fun, fun colors, and loving those cute arrows! Thank you for stopping by today, and be sure to visit Diana's blog here. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, enjoy your Sunday.

-Love, Frank XOXO
