Featured Customer - January

Hi all!  I thought we'd try out a new thing here on the blog...

Each month (possibly more often) we will feature one of our customers,with their photo, a short 'question and answer' and a couple of their favourite layouts that they have created.   Whether they are your own designs, lifts or sketch based, it is all good, every creation you make is from your heart.  They will be a great source of inspiration for all of our blog readers.

Our guinea pig, ahem, I mean our first 'Featured Customer' is also our friend Laura Shaver...

Isn't she cute?

First off, I would like to thank Laura for doing this for me, you see I asked her before I ran it by the owners, so that I could make sure someone would like to be in the spotlight, I wanted to make sure my idea would fly!.  I knew I picked right, as she readily agreed, this is one fun girl (as you can see from her photo)! 

Now, onto the questionnaire ... (we will ask each of our 'Featured  Customers' the same questions, so no surprises ladies!)

1.  {SM?} How long have you been scrapbooking?  {Laura} How long has Lee (a mutual scrappy friend) been married?! That was my first layout. Probably 11 years.
{SM?} Do you also create hand made cards? {Laura} Not as much as I would like but some.
{SM?} Who is your favourite  subject to scrapbook? {Laura} My 3 year old son.
{SM?} Where do you find your scrapbooking  inspiration? {Laura} From my Scrapping Ladies!
{SM?} Where do you scrapbook? {Laura} At home when I can but mostly at crop days and retreats.
{SM?} What is one of  your current favourite products?{Laura}  My favourite right now isn’t even a scrapping product officially! It is a big Stanley Fatmax rolling tool box that I use for my scrapping stuff – makes it easy as I never have to pack and I am always ready for a crop!

 And here are some of Laura's favourite creations.....
