As far as a scrapbooker accomplishments, my best experiences has been a member of Artes Laura and Card Cupids Design Team as well as Co-founder of CSDivas!!!

2) How you started scrapbooking?
It's funny for almost 2 years I watched a TV show "Cuts and Memories" and always liked what they presented.  Then one day I was at Michaels looking for some flowers and I ended up at the scrapbook aisles.  Immediately search for a paper trimmer, exacto knife, scissors, self healing mat, some papers and tons of stickers...  I remember this happened in January and by February I attended my first Scrapbook Expo at San Diego and here I am...

Well, you know a lot of things about me now.  You may also want to know that I will be sharing Organization Tips and Ideas as well as Project 12 sketches and layouts!!

What is Project 12???  Well is a monthly review layout, where you gather a bunch of pictures of the events and highlights of the month.  It's an approach that work great for me, because sometimes I can not scrapbook the whole event, but if I do my Monthly Review Layout of the month.  I have them in an album and everybody enjoys watching them... Will share more about it in my firsts posts!
Here are some of my Project 12 layouts:

For August 2010 I added back to school pictures, my job summer picnic pictures, mini pizzas my daughter and I bake and granny in pajamas and modeling!

For January 2010 I included a ´cousins´ pictures, 3 Wise Men celebration at work and my art journal!

For July, 2010 I choose pictures of another summer picnic from work, me at my office, our garden and William (our pet) at the Park!

For June, I included pictures of my BD Banner at work, cupakes from a GNO, Granny pictures, the BD cake my daughter cook for me and my sister new house!

For May 2010 I included pictures of my blog banner, William at bed and sleeping, my niece with her Graduation dress, my daughter with William and my new itso cubes at my sb area!

For October, 2010, you guessed right!  Iincluded Halloween pictures [actually behind the Shrek custom guy, my cousin, are 9 more photos of our Halloween Party], my cousin Lupis BD party, wrestling match fight [I love them and it´s my dark side! lol], a group photo from a boothcamp at work and William!
Did you notice that some months have a lot of events and someones don´t?  That is no problem at all!  Add dayly life pictures, your places, your family, your pet and you!!!
