Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday!
Today we have a “fantabulously” talented lady and tomorrow’s Challenge Me Monday Guest Designer!
Let me introduce to you to Shelly from My Paper Love:

You may recognize this project from Challenge Me Monday challenge #63 ~ #1 Dad.
Shelly was one of our Top 5 picks for this challenge.
Before we show you some of Shelly’s other incredible creations we thought you would like to get to know her a little better. We asked her a few crafty questions.
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting? Why?

I have always loved paper crafting. It may have started with collecting stickers when I was a little girl. I had books and books of stickers that eventually turned into stacks and stacks of paper. It really became a passion of mine shortly after my second son was born. I mostly created cards and invitations for friends and family. Paper crafting is “MY” relaxation and I really enjoy the creative process and instant gratification of something lovely!
2. What is your favorite type of project to make?

Definitely cards and invitations
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

Hands down it’s my Cricut! I love my little guy!
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

I think my favorite cartridges go by the season. So at the moment my favorite is Life’s A Beach. Create A Critter is definitely high on my list and so is Paper Doll Dress Up – this cartridge has so many random images, I love it!
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

When I’m not paper crafting I’m usually at one of my boys games or I’m in the kitchen cooking. Both my boys play baseball and my oldest son plays year round. We are always at a field.
As far as cooking, I really enjoy it. With two boys and my hubby I must have food ready to go at all times. They are ALWAYS hungry. I’m working on baking, let’s say it’s not exactly my thing.
6. Any other info you would like us to know about you.

Like many of you talented ladies and gentlemen, my friends and family encouraged, maybe pushed me, to share my craft. I have to admit it feels a little strange to write things about yourself and send them off into internet space. After all I’m not that interesting. Nonetheless, I started my blog and NEVER dreamed there was a “bloggy” world like this. Boy am I glad there is! On a personal note, I thank GOD for answering my prayers when I was a little girl, because I always told HIM I wanted to marry Prince Charming and I did twelve years ago! We have two boys and our little girl (yorkie) Lola. We live by the beach and take FULL advantage of that fact. I walk at the beach a lot, and we spend most of the year on the sand!
