I'm shutter happy, always have been. Maybe because I couldn't walk up to the age of 5 (in case youjust stumble upon this and don't know me, I was born with a double hip dislocation and doctors insisted I wouldn't be able to walk, but my parents were the loving and stubborn kind: I had 9 operations up to the age of 8, and started walking aged 5, never stopped until the British NHS decided to give me a hip replacement in 2003, followed by other 4 operations which failed in fixing what they did in the first) but my passion for all things artsy, being that the visual or the performing arts started very, very early. BUt we are talking pre-digital times (VERY pre digital!) And thinking about photography as a career was something one couldn't do, unless money was flowing, which, though we were middle class, in my case was not really an option. If you think about the money we spent in those days just to develop films...well... But I got given a camera by one of my dad's brothers, who also gave me my first guitar, and taking photos was as important as breathing...though I lost LOTS of photos through my gipsy life, careless *friends* and my own irresponsibility, I still got the joy of my mum keeping some treasures. Though my daughter was born before digital cameras were something one would have at hand, we documented her life pretty well, which took me into digi scrapping and where I am now... I was so, so excited when I saw Liz's new kit...it was like made to measure...so don't be surprised if lots of pages start coming up with this kit...is just one of the most amazing kits I have seen in my years in digi-land. Someone suggested I could start an *all about me* book with my LOs, and I may do just that. Have a look at the Gotta Pixel gallery to see what the rest of the Sweeties have created, and have a look at Liz's store there too...she has always fascinated me with her kits (she is probably the one I should thank for me being where I am, as it was through a freebie of hers I arrived in the forums) because the material is so versatile that you can create amazing variety of styles...here is a quick peak at what the Sweeties have made. you can get this kit HERE, there is also some AWESOME word art by just as awesome Danyale HERE, and a cool alpha HERE.

Former performer, eternal traveler, a warrior of life. Have always loved all form of artzy expression and somehow I ended up falling in love with digital scrapbooking.In 2009 started as a Creative Team for Karen Schulz and Katie Castillo from Snickerdoodle Designs and Just So Scrappy respectively. At the moment I am part of Etc by Danyale's & Mye De Leon's Creative Teams,was also with Crisdam Designs by Isabel Mendez but had to downsize as my health is not taking very well too much activity. Have guested for CaptivatedVisions and Connie Prince and have been invited by a few other designers...blessed, hey? I would have never thought a year ago I would be working alongside some of the most amazing designers!
Hi and thanks for popping in. I started moaning and groaning online at first because of the frustration a hip replacement gone terribly wrong, making records of our (small but beautiful) family. Then I found scrapbooking and it has now become the main way to do so.Have fun and, if it's not too much bother, let us know you've been here.
