1. What's your name?
Rebecca
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
I have a boyfriend of 7 years, and we have two children. My girly-girl Rylie just turned 5, and my crazy boy Mason just turned 3.

Five years.

I must say ink, I can't do a page without INK!

6. A quick description of your style?
"Eclectic distressing meets beauty parlour"
7. Anything else you want to share?
I can be a little cooky and sometimes crazy! I scrap to preserve memories for my children, but I also enjoy the artistic side of it. Nothing is off limits to me, I scrap good, and bad. I don't think only the good times should be remembered, that would be a lie. I scrap with anything, I just don't care about "acid/lignin" free! I love to alter stuff, and again, nothing is off limits there either!

*FOREVERVAMPRESS*
1. What's your name?
Celina
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
I'm a military spouse; my 14th wedding anniversary is in May. I have two daughters, 17 and 13, and a son who is 3. I have a very large extended family and a few unofficially adopted members.
3. How long have you been scrapping?
I've been scrapping since June of 2009. Got obsessed with it right away and my husband says it's an addiction!
4. What is your favorite product?
Right now my favorite prodcut is any color of Distress Ink. There are so many wonderful products out there but my fingers are constantly colored with ink.
5. Your favorite manufacturer?
My favorite manufacturer must be Ranger. They make such awesome products I love to use like memory glass and studio paints.
6. A quick description of your style?
I'd say my style is pretty eclectic but I like to go dark whenever I can.
7. Anything else you want to share?
Nothing else comes to mind at the moment but I am sure stuff will come up to share later! I look forward to be a part of this COF!

*KRISSYCLARKMCKEE*
1. What's your name?
Kristin "Krissy" Clark McKee
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
Married - not my first but it IS my last marriage! Three year anniversary is this October. I have four children spread out in age from 23 to 9. Thankfully, they don't all live at home anymore. Hubby has two children, 23 and 26, who are also out of the house and self-sufficient. We have four, yes four, dogs (all ankle biters) and my youngest daughter is the proud owner of two rats.
3. How long have you been scrapping?
I just started last April - can't believe I waited so long!
4. What is your favorite product?
Distress Ink - can't seem to do a page without it!
5. Your favorite manufacturer?
Gosh, that one is so hard! Probably my two favorite paper manufacturers right now would be Graphic 45 and Crate Paper. I am a paper addict,though!!!!6. A quick description of your style?
Not a clue - I don't think I have just one. If you know, please tell me. I have been super-fascinated by vintage lately, though.7. Anything else you want to share?

*DANCINIRISH90*
1. What's your name?
Lisa
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
I've been married for 16 years. I have a 13 year old daughter. We have a dog and a bird.
3. How long have you been scrapping?
I've kept up with albums of photos and memorabilia since high school. I started 'modern' scrapbooking a couple years ago, but I feel I've only recently started embracing the more artistic side of this hobby.
4. What is your favorite product?
I go in phases, but I don't do many pages without some type of ink on it. And I love border punches too.
5. Your favorite manufacturer?
Probably Basic Grey
6. A quick description of your style?
What style? I let the pictures decide how they should be presented, I guess. I do consider my pages as divided into 2 types -- functional pages and artistic pages. I scrap all my photos, so sometimes I just need to get them done with multiple photos and not a lot of other stuff going on. But when a photo is extra special to me or inspires me, I give it a more elaborate treatment. Does that make sense?
7. Anything else you want to share?

*ZUK*
1. What's your name?
Andrea
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
I've been married for 8 1/2 years to my husband Trey and we have an 8 year old son.
3. How long have you been scrapping?
Like Lisa I started in high school with what was available back then. I've always been into art my whole life and went to fashion college for a year.I'm especially fascinated with color!
4. What is your favorite product?
Most definately my distress inks. I have all the colors and just love playing with them.
5. Your favorite manufacturer?
Tim Holtz, Basic Grey, and Bobunny.
6. A quick description of your style?
I don't feel like I have a certain style. My starting point is always the photo so that dictates where I want the design to go. I LOVE trying new techniques and telling stories with my photos and designs!
7. Anything else you want to share?
I'm on the design team for "If it's groovy" as a 2 page designer. I also just opened up my own etsy shop about a week ago, so I've been pretty busy lately but this seems like a great group already. Besides, I like the sound of being a deliciously distressed diva. Lol.

*WENDYG-SA*
1. What's your name?
Wendy
2. Tell a little about your family. Married? Kids? Etc..
Married with 3 adorable kids. Jarrod's 11 and entering that pre-teen phase which is scaring me a bit. Erin is 4 and a real FIRE CRACKER! Just like mom. And my darling Matt has just turned 1 and is the most adorable baby. Love them all to death!!
3. How long have you been scrapping?
My mom got me started at the end of 2007 and I'm absolutely hooked now
4. What is your favorite product?
I'm just loving misting at the moment. I love the fact that I can alter anything to the colour I WANT!!! Cool5. Your favorite manufacturer?
I LOVE Prima's embellies. For pp's I must say Prima, Kaiser Kraft and I've recently become hooked on the creative Imaginations range6. A quick description of your style?
I have several because I do really girly LO's for my daughter and then I go to the opposite extreme for my oldest son. But genrellay I love to tear, crumbles, paint, stitch.
7. Anything else you want to share?
I find it extremely frustrating having a very unique style amongst local scrappers here in SA. I can't join any crops or classes because I just don't fit in so sb.com has become my scrapping home. Look forward to learning and sharing with you gals

5. Your favorite manufacturer?
Prima for embellies and BasicGrey for pp
6. A quick description of your style?
Still looking for it, I've been 'throwing together' scrapbooks for two years with putting enough thought in it to make sure the paper is straight. But have started getting a little more into the artistic side and have found that not one page-no matter the theme-doesn't have something torn, crumpled, inked or chalked. Have also found that I love the backing of prima flowers to add to los
7. Anything else you want to share?
My hands and nails are always dirty-thanks to either the pottery wheel in my garage or the ink that is cluttering my table! Love to get constructive criticism and learn new techniques and products and would love to get to know some people also into scrapbooking-even if they aren't in the area!

I'm married to Tom (22 years now). Mom to Beth and Amy. Teach mathematics - currently in middle school, but was teaching at the university level before my husband took his job with Oklahoma Gas and Energy and we moved to OKC area. Beth married Tony in 2009. Amy joined the US Army this year.
3. How long have you been scrapping?
I started scrapping in 2004 when I was blessed with a black and white appaloosa colt that was national level show quality. I wanted to keep a "book" for clients to look at as we went to the regional shows. I planned to stand him as a stallion, but he died of liver cancer at age four. Scrapbooking sort of filled the hole and still provides a creative outlet for me.

7 gypsies, Basic Grey, Jeni Bowlin, Websters Pages

5. Your favorite manufacturer?
Prima for flowers and probably Basic grey for pattern paper

6. A quick description of your style?
I have no idea although many have told me that my style is shabby chic
7. Anything else you want to share?
Well, I love my Pazzles and CANNOT (I've tried!) make a layout without using it! My husband supports my hobby (he got me the Pazzles as a birthday present some years back) up to the point where he begs for me to go shopping (he's a keeper alright!) and he nags me for not having finished the wedding album yet. I love to make my own embellishments. Sometimes I sell premade pages and embellishments (tear bears, handmade flowers, etc) on eBay to help support my hobby.

Oh, yeah, it takes me hours and even days to finish one layout. I'm extremely sloooow but I always love how the layout looks at the end.
