Spotlight Sunday

Happy Sunday Friends! Great, as always, to see you! You're looking good.

This week's Spotlight is on Donya of OK Scrappin' Mama. She took a Wednesday Win with this cutie pie...

The great stuff doesn't stop there. Take a look what's on her blog...

Everything is super cute, huh? Well, Donya can't help but create such cute stuff....'cause she's a real sweetheart herself. Let's get to know her.

When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why? 

I started scrapbooking when I was pregnant with my daughter in 2001. 
A friend who was into Creative Memories gave me an album, stickers, papers 
and tools, and told me I would never regret documenting our life with pictures.

I started making cards in 2009 with store bought stickers, papers and items. 
Then in 2010 when I got all my Cricut stuff started making cards that way.

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

I enjoy doing both cards and layouts. Making cards is more creative and relaxing for me and I love entering challenges with what I’ve created. I don’t alter things much but really want to start doing that and stamping and using my Prismacolor pencils. 

What is your favorite product to use on your projects? 

Cricut images are a given. Tough to pick a favorite product…if you ask my 10 yr old, she would say paper! LOL I have way to much of it. But also like to use ribbon, buttons and stickles.

What is your favorite Cricut cartridge? 

So many to decide from. I use Gypsy Wanderings quite a bit and Lacy labels for frames and mats. I love the alphabet on Nates ABC’s so that is my go to for welding wording with my gypsy. I use Paper Doll For Every Day a lot just because there are so many different cuts to use on there if you size it right for your project. 

What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

When not crafting I’m keeping up with or 10 yr old and 4 yr old, PTA and their activities. I work part-time at Bath and Body Works. I love to cook, garden and read. We are very family oriented so always spending time on weekends with both sides of the family too. 

Any other information you would like us to know about you?

I’m a fun loving, happily married SAHM with the energy and attitude of a 25-year-old trapped in a 45-year-old body. LOL I’m always thinking of things I want to try (like stamping) but don’t always have the time. I love paper crafting and blogging. The next thing I want to accomplish is find a good fit for a Design Team. 

I want to thank FCCB so much for featuring me today--it was a true privilege! I look forward to my Guest Designer spot tomorrow. Thank you! 

Thanks a bunch, Donya!  Now...hop over and take a hop around OK Scrappin' Mama. Then come back tomorrow for Challenge Me Monday when Donya shines with the FCCB DT.

Be blessed, Beckie
