Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday. My name is Saundra and I am your spotlight hostess here at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. Beginning today and every Sunday we will be spotlighting our guest designers and sponsors.
I would like to introduce you to Sandee from http://sandeeallen.blogspot.com/ .
Sandee will be our guest designer for our next Challenge Me Monday. We here at FCCB wanted you to get to know Sandee a bit so we asked her a few crafty questions.
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting? Why?

In 2003 I began my first plunge into the world of scrapbooking when I married a man who had 2 adorable, wonderful boys. It became my obsession to scrap every moment I spent with them...and we had tons of fun times that deserved to be documented! After getting divorced I discovered all the wonderful scrapbooking sites and blogs on the internet which introduced me to the world of card making, mini albums and altered art. I was hooked! So you can say that my marrying a man with children started it but the internet really opened a whole new world for me.

2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e. cards, LOs, mini-albums, etc.)?

I spend most of my time making cards but if the occasion arises I love to get lost in the art of creating a mini album. They fascinate me and I make them for gifts to give to my friends and family. I love to make them from scratch so I am always collecting chipboard! (I have to make a confession here, I never used my Cricut to help me make an album! ::gasp::...) That is on my list to remedy in 2011!

3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

This is the easiest question to answer-anything bling related whether it be stickles or rhinestones!

4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

I think my favorite cartridge is always the newest one in my collection and I got Stretch Your Imagination for a Christmas present; so right now, it's my favorite!

5. What do you do in your spare time, when you're not paper crafting?

I watch some reality shows like Biggest Loser, Dancing with the Stars, Survivor, and The Apprentice....but to be completely honest...I paper craft in my spare time.

Any other info you would like us to know about you :)

My newest fun thing to do with my paper crafting is getting published. I have 2 cards in the CARDS, Hottest Trend in Card Making magazine (November 2010 and upcoming May 2011 issue) AND upcoming in the April/May and the June/July 2011 issue of their CRICUT magazine!!

Here are a few things that you can find on Sandee’s blog:
