Congratulations to Christina aka criostirado

This week's Scrapper of the Week is Christina. Christina says she hasn't been "scrapping" very long but I know you will enjoy her creations when you look at her gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=30219). Christina, we are glad you found GDS!

Oh wow!! Thank you so much!

1). How and when did you get into digi-scrapping?

I have actually only been digi-scrapping for about 7 months. I have done a lot of altered art and paper crafting, but I really haven't done any regular scrapbooking at all. I started because I stumbled upon GDS..and saw a pretty kit and that was it! I've been addicted ever since!

2). Where are you from and tell us a little about yourself; perhaps about your family?

I am from Northern NY, way up there near Canada. I am married to a SGM in the Army, I am very proud of him! We have four kids, 25, 23, 8 and 2 plus one granddaughter who is 2 and a half! We are getting ready to retire from the Army, but not sure yet where we want to live!

3). If you could travel to any place in the world where would you go, with whom and why?

Oh gosh, I have done a lot of traveling, I lived in Germany for three years, traveled all over Europe but still so much more I would like to see. We LOVE to go RVing, so I don't think it would be any one place, if we could, I would love to just live in the RV for a year and travel the country!

4). What will you purchase with your winning coupon?

Who knows!!! I check the new items every day and I think I buy something just about every day! So my husband will be happy to know I have a coupon and am not spending more of his money!! :-)

5). What's your very favorite food?

Ice cream without a doubt. If I could pick a food to be calorie-less that I could eat for breakfast lunch dinner and snack...Ice cream would be it!

6). How much time to you digi-scrap per week?

Probably about 20 hours a week maybe? Depends!

7). What program do you use? PSE 9

8). What would you rather have, more time or more money?

Oh gosh that's a hard one! You know, I think I would rather have more money, so my husband wouldn't have to get another job after he retires from the Army and that we could just travel in our RV, homeschool our kids and not worry about how we are paying the bills....or how I am paying for my next kit! lol

9). What do you love most about digi-scrapping?

Actually I love the community!! I have met some really great people since I started. Digi Scrappers are very friendly and you get to know them fast because we share our family pictures and journaling with each other!

10). What layout are you most proud of creating and why (share a link, please)?

You know its funny, I always kind of feel a bit wonky about my regular layout pages, I think because I see so many AMAZING layouts in the galleries, and I am always thinking "Gosh, I wish my layouts would look like that!" But I think my favorites aren't layouts at all, they are my ATC's, love making them!!! So giving you TWO links!



Thank you so much!!!
