I am so excited to welcome Lisa to our DT! I first "met" her at a super site called Love Is In The Details and admired her work a lot, so I was very happy to see her dt app in my inbox! Now without further ado, here's a bit about Lisa and a LO she did for us! Thank you Lisa and welcome to the team!
Name: Lisa Tottle
Location: Winnipeg , MB Canada
Family: Husband Mike, children Zachary, Samantha & Sean
How I got started scrapping: I started about a year after my 3rd child was born, I was officially a stay at home mom and looking for a creative outlet and something that I could do for just me, with the idea that when my children are grown they will have something more than just photos from their childhood to look at, they will have the stories behind the photos too.
Why I love scrapping: I’ve always been a creative person ever since I was little, so scrapbooking appeals to this side of me. But I also find it a great way to relax, it’s like a little escape from the everyday stress and worries.
Where I get my inspiration: Inspiration is everywhere, it can be that special photo, new products, ads, and most certainly the mass amounts of inspiration though scrappy blogs & sites!
Three non-scrappy things about me: I love science…yup a real CSI junkie!! Currently I live only about 1mile from where I grew up, and can’t imagine living anywhere else! When I was little I had dreams of becoming an Olympic Figure Skater, that never happened but I loved the sport and skated until I was 18.
Here's the challenge we gave Lisa...
Trends and Techniques - Undersea and Punches
I've been seeing a lot of cute undersea critters and waves and watery stuff lately. Let's see a LO w/ waves or undersea theme items and use a punch somewhere (could be a wave punch ;) )
And here's the gorgeous LO she made!
