Are you ready!?! Here's our next new Design Team member, Keely Yowler. You might recognize this name as Keely has been a finalist in our monthly voting in the past. This girl takes her scrapbooking pretty dang seriously. I think she's got diamond glaze running thru her veins and I bet if you asked her, she'd tell ya she lives to scrap. (we don't know what she's talking about at all do we girls?!)
We're delighted to have her join us and I gotta say, the more pink, the better! I'm a little envious of these gals who have girlies in their lives...Must live vicariously through those who have daughters...so enough rambling! Let's get to the good stuff...Meet Keely!
Oh ya, remember the sketch that everyone had to use in their application? Here it is again. Get a load of her incredible page. Notice the girlie-ness. Love it!
Q:Tell us a bit about you and your family.
A: I’m the busy mom of 5 wild & wonderful kiddies (4 boys and 1 girl) and the wife of one very supportive husband. We have 5 dogs and 2 cats. We live in beautiful Georgetown, Kentucky. I grew up as an only child and always dreamed of having a big family. I am a registered nurse and work as a medical reviewer for an insurance company. When I’m not scrapbooking, I enjoy photography, watching my kiddies participate in sports, and riding on the back of my husband’s motorcycle.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking and where did you get your start in this craft?
A: I have been scrapbooking for 9 years. I bought a scrapbooking kit from QVC Home Shopping Network and I was hooked. I have been totally emerged in scrapbooking since that day. I have always enjoyed crafts, drawing, cross-stitch, sewing...you name it.
Q:What inspires your creativity when you are scrapbooking?
A: My family, of course. I have so many subjects to choose from. My daughter loves to pose for the camera and always humors me during a photo session. I’m also inspired by beautiful fabrics, advertising, and nature.
Q:Describe your creative style
A: I would describe my style as Whimsical with a touch of Shabby Chic. I love bold, bright color combinations, lots of layering, minimal white space, with the addition of inking, sewing, and vintage lace.
Q:What are your three favorite products/techniques right now?
A: My three favorite techniques would be doodling, adding lace/ribbons, and lots of layering.
Q:What project(s) are you currently working on?
A: I’m currently working on layouts about each of my kids, their day to day life, and what they enjoy right now.
Q:Describe your perfect day
A: My perfect day would be spent enjoying the outdoors with my family, while taking lots of photos. Later, I could come home and create layouts while the journaling is fresh in my head.
Q:What are your three favorite layouts of all time that you’ve created (published or not)?
