Welcome, Guest Designer: Tina Phillips! :)

My name is Tina and I am a SAHM of 5 boys, 6 if you include my S/O who is probably the biggest kid of all.  I have a giify/weird/twisted sense of humor and it often comes thru on my scrap kids will so love me when they are older with a family of their own.....hehehehe!! I have always had a creative side......probably a self defense mechanism , I can only imagine how crazy I would be if I didn't have some sort of creative outlet.  I have scrapped on and off for about 7 years.  Started when my youngest was born and that didn't last objects and no sleep just don't go well together. A couple of years passed and I got my paper and stuff back out and have reached the point now where I just know I am gonna be one of those old ladies on "Hoarders" buried under her scrap supplies and not letting anyone toss out pringles cans cuz I just KNOW I will alter them.....SOMEDAY!!!!  My style is all over the place......I rarely do girly layouts but my cousin had a baby girl last year and I have had a ball making pages and things for pink even.  And I am a self professed hater of pink!!!

Since I have all boys, my pages are usually on the grungy side (for the older boys....I have 3 teenager boys) and I really enjoy the more whimsical lines for the younger 2.......Hello?????? Echo Park?????? LOVE them!! 

I just kinda wing it.....I usually start with a sketch but I am famous for going so far off of it it is unrecognizable....Oh well :)  And I am just getting into card making as well.....It's great to have something handmade to give to somneone, because to me it means so much more than something you just pull off the shelf.  I am NOT a card maker....but I try :)  And sometimes it realy helps get the scrapping mojo back up to snuff too. 


Thanks so much for joining us, Tina!
