What inspired you to begin your creative journey?
 Kindergarten! Actually, I've never not been on a creative journey, but I discovered scrapbooking in 1997.

If you were to describe your scrapbooking style in five words, what would they be?
Ever evolving, always trying but never quite achieving clean and simple, (LOL) But seriously, ephemera, playful, distressed, layered, pastel.

What type of camera do you use?
Canon 50D SLR and iPhone 4S.

Where do you do most of your scrapbooking?
At home, in a room devoted to paper crafting.

What time of day are you most creative, and what inspires you to create?
I'm most creative late in the day, after I should be sleeping, and I'm most inspired by doing a clean-up of my space and discovering product I'd forgotten I had!
