Hello!

Salutations!

I’m a Peacemaker, a Wife, a Mummy, a Craft lover and I really love colors and types!

 Friends say that I have scissors for fingers and I think they might be on to something there. I have been creating for as long as I can remember and started scrapbooking in 2004. It all happened when I stumbled upon a scrapbooking shop while on my way for an archaeological class, and since then, my memories have been recorded acid-free style! I love colors – the brighter, the better. I thrive on playing with different color combinations and revel the challenge of using papers and products in non-traditional ways. My scrapbooking style can be described as fun, colorful and playful. I like to think that my creations bright, colorful confections that celebrate my blessed life.

My days are filled with cups of earl grey tea, stories, blocks, textas, make believe games, library trips, cooking, baking and op shop hunts. All these activities and moments serve as inspiration for me and often through them, a colour combination or an idea for a page will come a knocking on my door.

Welcome to my blessed life, all captured through Cut & Paste! Shalom!

    Hi, Sophie! I love your work! I found you through Pink Sketches. I am hoping you will consider submitting some work to Scrap N’ Art this month! I am on the DT there, and we have some awesome calls this month. You can find all the info at http://scrapnart.com/page.php?3.
