Akiko

Hi, my name is Akiko Kuroki (aka akilia),and I am from Japan. I am 37 years old and I am married to my great husband and we have a lovely daughter (6 years old). I began scrapbooking from the autumn of 2007. I am crazy about scrapbooking. The reason for having begun scrapbooking is for recording growth of a daughter. I came to take many photographs above till then, after beginning scrapbooking. I am glad to participate as Design Team of Inspired Blueprints. And I am looking forward to it very much.

Christa

My name is Christa Paustenbaugh and I currently live in Coastal North
Carolina.  I'm married to my college sweetheart, Terry, a military man,
so we are from a little bit of everywhere!  We have two daughters, Maya
(7) and Ella (4) who definitely keep me busy and entertained.  I also
work part time teaching classes at our local community college,
however, my heart is in school social work.

I started
scrapbooking right after I got married 11 years ago, but didn't get
"serious" about it until 4 years ago.  I picked up Cathy Zielske's
first book and haven't looked back since!  I'm definitely a clean and
simple scrapper, but I do enjoy going out of my comfort zone too and
try new things.  My scrapbooking focus is our everyday life, the things
that make us tick and make us a family.  I love to tell our story and
what better way than to put some photos and papers together to tell our
story even better!
