Feature You Friday!

Good Morning CraftyStealers!

We are continuing to feature your great work on Fridays at CraftySteals! Today, we have a fun layout from Tina Walker.

Before we see it, here's what Tina had to say about herself:
"I am a working mom.  I have been crafty since I was a little girl (I have my g'ma to thank for that) and have been 'into' scrapbooking for about 15 years now.  I still have my first scrapbook and WOW, how have things changed, but I wouldn't re-do it or change it for anything.  I love how scrapbooking has embraced all types of mediums, styles, and techniques.  Anything goes, and that is perfect for me.  :)

I work the typical 9-5 job, but scrapbooking and photography are my passions.  I MUST do both in order to keep my sanity.  There is nothing better than coming home after a demanding day 'on the job' and getting 'lost' in a layout.  I thrive on imperfection, the messier the better. (even though this layout is simple and fairly neat).  I like to throw a little of this and little of that on every page and stitching is a must for me. In addition to scrapbooking, I also love photography.  Again, imperfection is what I strive for, the slightly out of focus or the slighty askew line of a photo.  Macro photography is also a favorite.

I LOVE Crafty Steals - it makes this 'art' more enjoyable when you can do it and not spend a fortune.  One of my favorite purchases was the Crate Paper - Season, Lillian, and Cottage collection.  There are so many fun projects to make with this paper.  I look forward to the future steals.  :)

Here is Tina's layout using one of those CraftySteals she loves, the Crate Paper "Season" collection:
