Day 4-Becky


I am so honored to be a part of the Let's Capture our Memories Sketch Team and I couldn't be more excited to contribute to a wonderful part of this Scrapbooking Community!

Hi everyone, my name is Becky. I was born and raised in Newfoundland. I now reside in Charlottetown, PEI with my wonderful loving and supporting husband of 10 months. I have lived in many places including my home of Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Ontario, Alberta, and England. A dream of mine growing up was to travel to all of the provinces in Canada, and I can proudly say that I have accomplished that this past year. Travelling is a passion of mine, and I do it as much as possible. I have been to England (2x) Scotland, Wales, Switzerland and the United States. My hobbies include natural photography, biking, camping, fishing, hiking, gloating, and really anything to do with the outdoors. I’ve been involved with Girl Guides of Canada for 23 years (joined when I was 5).

I started scrapbooking in Bible College when a friend of mine showed me her scrapbook of her family and friends. I thought it was the neatest thing that she had all these beautiful papers and doo dads placed so “daintily”. I later found out they were called embellishments. I started off with visiting dollar stores just to test the waters. It wasn’t long before I was shopping at the LSS. From the beginning, I was told that everything had to be “flat” but then again people were once told that the world was once flat, and as they became enlightened and have learnt otherwise, so have I. My husband says “that you can really see the difference between my first scrapbook, and my most recent work” And still there is so much more to learn. I don’t have a particular “favourite” line because I honestly love them all!
Feel free to hop on over tomy blog: Made with Love to view some of my other projects that I've been working on.

Here is the sketch that I did:























And here is my take on it:
