What inspired you to begin your creative journey?
I tagged along with some friends to a beginners scrapping class at a scrapbook store after seeing a creative memories layout one of them had done. I was pretty much hooked straight away!

If you were to describe your scrapbooking style in five words, what would they be?
Fresh, modern, clean-lines, photo-centric, evolving

What type of camera do you use?
Canon 7D (which I am still learning to use) and I love using my iPhone, particularly Instagram for those spontaneous photos.

Where do you do most of your scrapbooking?
I am fortunate to have my own room set up for scrapbooking and mostly scrap there and I also attend a monthly crop day with a local store.

What time of day are you most creative, and what inspires you to create?
The mood to create can strike whenever; predominantly I would scrap in the afternoons or evenings.

Why do you love sketches?
Sketches are so versatile; they can give you the perfect starting point to creating your layout and can be flipped and changed around to suit your own scrapping style. I love them!


I just love Fiona's take on Inspired Blueprints sketch 66...the mix of real feathers, and the fussy-cut peacock feather really pop!
