It's Spotlight Sunday, and We sure are glad you're here!!

Melissa's talents don't stop with this train. If you look around her blog you'll find other craftiness like this...
Aside from being a wonderful crafter, Melissa is a super lady. Let's get to know her a little better...
When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
I started scrapbooking when my hubby gave me a Ricoh 35mm camera. I continued to scrapbook over the yrs as he gave me my first digital camera & upgraded me a couple times to newer & better digital cameras. When I first scrapbooked I kept it Clean & Simple (CAS) with no embellishments. Wanted to scrapbook to create layouts using my photos to look back at enjoying & reliving the memories. Started to embellish scrapbook layouts, make cards & other papercraft items when I bought a Sizzix die cut machine. Wanted to papercraft to add more to my scrapbook layouts and for enjoyment of sharing a homemade card or item.
What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?
Favorite project is to add a photo of mine to a papercraft item & recently has been making shaped cards.
What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
Favorite products are: calligraphy pens/markers, Cricut cartridges/Gypsy, embossing folders, Spellbinders dies & vellum paper.
What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
Favorite Cricut cartridge during this Winter has been Winter Woodland. Other favorite Cricut cartridges would be: Create a Critter, Doodlecharms, Life is a Beach & Sweet Treats.
What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
In my spare time I enjoy other hobbies of: calligraphy, crochet & photography. Also, enjoy riding the Tandem Bicycle with my hubby.
Any other information you would like us to know about you?
I always tell everyone I have one hubby, one daughter & one dog. I have one wonderful hubby who works in the computer software programming/testing area of Telecommunications. Hubby does all the gardening, landscaping, repairing & remodeling of our house. We do not like contractors. I have one very talented daughter that is now 20 and a sophomore in college studying Art Animation. I have one dog, a mixed breed Hound dog that thinks he is part Cougar. Had one other dog before the one we have now that I considered my first baby and was the sweetest mixed breed German Shepherd that is now in Doggy Heaven. I use to work in the computer software Telecommunications field for 20+ yrs and left the corporate world so I would not have to daycare my daughter after she finished Kindergarten and entered 1st grade. If I had it to do all over I would do the same & spend time with my daughter enjoying her youth.
Started my blog with encouragement from Susan/TenSGal of Expression Avenue site. Susan has helped me learn the Cricut, Gypsy, scrapbooking & papercrafting.
Thanks so much Melissa. Be sure to hop over and check out Created by Sunshine Honeybee . Melissa will also be joining the FCCB DT for tomorrow's Challenge Me Monday. We invite you back to see all the inspiration.
Be blessed, Beckie
