Wow. January is over already. Went fast, didn't it? I am really excited by all the changes and newness of this year and I have to tell ya that February is bringin' more! In January, we saw some stellar layouts from our good friend, Stacy Stone and now that her position is opened up for a new guest designer, we're just about vibrating with excitement over February's artist. This girl is funny as s**t and cracks me up steadily. She's about as genuine & real as they come and her layouts are rather fine too! She's a powerhouse of creativity and we're thrilled to welcome her on board for February. Here she is, the one and only Sasha Holloway!

Q-Why do you scrapbook?
A- I scrapbook because it is fun. Of course you want to leave behind something for the kids and all that but. I love to create and cut up paper it is a free release of therapy for me.

A- Sometimes it is the paper, or a picture ... I can surf blogs and just get creative that way it all depends also on my mood and if I have some stuff to get off my chest.
Q-What projects are on your scrap table today?

A- Oh dear gawd I HAVE to clean up .. matter of fact I have to clean up AFTER every thing I create and start with a new and fresh slate ..even if I am going to use it again I clean it up.
Q-Have you ever had a scrapbooking disaster? (spilled paint, burnt w/ heat gun?) and if so, were you able to rescue the destroyed layout?
A- Yes I wasted a soda on my layout that I had created for October Afternoon when I guest designed and LUCKILY I had some of the paper they sent me and I print my own pictures. After I gave birth to a few “f” bombs ..I started over .. whew!
