Amanda, or Manda for short.

2) What do you look like?
Short and fluffy. Fake Brunette (other wise its gray as a granny). Blue eyes. A regular bucket o' fun!


3) Where are you from?
For the past 3 years, a tiny town in Southwestern Oregon; before that an even tinier town in very far Northern California.

4) Who are your favorite people?
My "pretend" hubby, our kids and a select few

5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do.
Outdoors!! Lets go out and adventure. Shooting, camping, photographing, crafting, cooking, shopping, hiking, hunting, road tripping.

6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD?
A couple of templates and Burgers and Beer Bundle from the Oldies but Goodies Sale.

7) How did you celebrate your last birthday?
Went to the Eye Dr and got glasses on Friday. Took the kids on an adventure up into the mountains to a lake that has absolutely no cell service and no people about an hour and half from our house. We went fishing, hiking and got sunburned.

8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you?
I'm just coming back to the community after a 5 year hiatus, and there are so many amazing scrappers and storytellers. Some I've followed for 10 years when I first came here. Traci has an amazing story of body and health transformation over the past couple of years, which I absolutely love. It inspired me to take action and find the girl that's living in my body.

9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite?
Favorites - scraplifts, scrap-a-long (use this template or kit)
Least Favorites - anything that moves super quick!

10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen.
I'm a country girl, and love music, so it's hard to narrow that down, but this was for sure a fave: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZREybylPsE

11) What is your favorite sweet?
It really just depends on the day.
*gummy bears
*brownies
*homemade snickerdoodles

12) What is the last great book you read?
It's been forever since I read a great book, we aren't big leisure readers at our house. But at work, for personal development I read, "Who Moved MyCheese?"

13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list...
Alaska
Yellowstone / Grand Tetons
Ireland

14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not?
Yes! It's my first year back and I love the variety and how it just sparks creativity!

1) Who are you? Jessica

2) What do you look like? Short, brown hair, blue eyes

3) Where are you from? Moved all over with my dad being in the Army, but I've lived in Sanford, FL for about 24 years and I love it here!

4) Who are your favorite people? My husband, Mike, and my two boys, Aiden (10) and Rhys (9). We are also super close to both our families. They are our tribe and I would be lost without them.

5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do. Besides scrapping, I love reading, coffee, and Disney.

6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD? Adventure: In The Woods and Moving On, both by Ponytails Designs. I just got back from our scout camping trip and can't wait to use that one, and we recently bought our first home.

7) How did you celebrate your last birthday? We had just gotten done moving and celebrating my son's big 10th bday, and we had a hurricane that week so... we didn't do anything.

8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you? So many people! I love Jacinda's storytelling, how Krista is always so creative filling her pocket pages, and so many of the designers. All of the unique themes remind me to scrap more than just the big holidays.

9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite? I really love the scavenger hunts. My least favorite are when I have to share pages. Even though I love to scrap, I rarely have time to make other pages, and I always have such difficulty uploading.

10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen. At 14 I was probably listening to Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby."

11) What is your favorite sweet? I have a big sweet tooth, so I will rarely turn down a treat. But probably my favorite is Lindt truffles.

12) What is the last great book you read? Some from recent years are Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list... Europe (all over, Germany, France, Italy, all the way down to Greece), Washington DC with my kids, and California.

14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not? Unfortunately no. I scrap chronologically, somewhat similar to project life, and I just don't have the time to make other pages. I do love reading the prompts though, and sometimes I incorporate them into my own pages.

My least favorites are ones that require a lot of time and energy. Sometimes i need to pick- scrap or play a game. It's hard to do both at one time.

1) Who are you? Rae aka bcgal00 around digi-land.
2) What do you look like? short (5'4"), slim and short white hair. I look a lot like my mom.

3) Where are you from? I'm in Canada, born and raised in Ontario but have lived on the west coast (Vancouver) for most of my adult life. In in a suburb of Vancouver called Port Coquitlam.

4) Who are your favorite people? I'm awfully proud of my family, they are all strong, independent and caring people. My mom has been gone many years now but we were very close and I looked up to her immensely. Friend-wise, I don't see her often enough but a neighbor who became a close friend, (Debbie) is one of my fave people, she is so selfless and giving. She was a foster mom for many years and I admire her tireless energy, compassion and patience.

5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do.
Other than scrapping, I retired from the wedding/portrait photog biz and focus now on taking my own photos and have developed a passion for wildlife photography. Honestly though, I just love photographing pretty much everything, family, pets, food, landscape, botany, architecture. You name it, I'll photograph it. I was published in our local municipality's calendar this year and it was such a thrill that I'm going to start submitting to other magazines.

6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD? In the last week I just bought RRD Hello My Love and Will You Be My Gnome by WendyP, Empty Nest by Ponytails and Art Deco by Jennifer Fehr.

7) How did you celebrate your last birthday?
We always have a small family get-together with dinner and a cake. Simple but fun.

8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you?
As I mentioned above, my friend Debbie is my idol. She has the wisdom, patience and kindness of a saint. She has fostered many children over the years and one of them she adopted. I love to chat and get her advice about life b/c she always has such a common-sense way of approaching situations.

9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite?
I don't have the patience for the game where you have to search the store previews. I would rather be chatting and scrapping.

10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen.
I'm an oldie, so back in 1961 I was listening to Roy Orbison's Crying. To this day I still love that song.
https://youtu.be/tNdBLBleO90

11) What is your favorite sweet?
Anything chocolate. I love Turtles.

12) What is the last great book you read?
The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell was really good.

13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list...
Panana Canal, African Safari and Australia

14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not? I used to and really appreciated that completion coupon so I could build up my stash but lately I haven't needed the coupon so have focused on just CT work and kind of doing my own thing. But, I love the inspiration and ideas so will continue to play along for "fun", not worrying about completing all of them.

1) Who are you? I'm Lisa
2) What do you look like? I'm short (my 12 year old is the same height as me!) with long blond hair (down to my backside) and blue eyes that have a teeny ring of greenish gold in the centre.
3) Where are you from? I'm from Bribie Island which is on the Sunshine Coast in Queeensland, Australia.
4) Who are your favorite people? My hubby and two cherubs - a 10 year old boy and 12 year old girl.
5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do. For me time I enjoy scrapbooking (of course), reading and crossword puzzles and with the family we enjoy bike riding, bush walking four-wheel driving, exploring and watching movies together.
6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD? Piece by Piece v.5 Templates by Erica Zane
7) How did you celebrate your last birthday? I went out for dinner with my little family.
8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you? There's so many people in the gallery that inspire me, I love to look through layouts using the kit/templates that I'm about to use to see what others have done with it and see what elements work together that I probably wouldn't think of trying together. When I'm low on mojo I like to browse the gallery at random to get me back into it.
9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite? Time is my challenge, I keep saying I'm going to complete a challenge, start well then never manage to finish.
10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen. I wasn't big into music back then and really just listened to what ever was on the radio. I did enjoy East 17 though and they were the first CD I ever got.

1) Who are you?
Rebecca (mostly known as Bec by my close friends and family)

2) What do you look like?
Late 30s, 180cm tall (or 5'11"), brown eyes and brown hair that is naturally wavy/curly.

3) Where are you from?
Melbourne, Australia (born and raised)

4) Who are your favourite people?
My Mum (we are very close, which I feel so fortunate for), my husband, my best female friend and my 4 children.

5) Tell us some of your favourite things to do.
Besides digiscrapping, I like to read science-fiction novels, drink tea (especially from a teapot), play Pokemon GO and daydream about having a clutter-free minimalist home without kids toys scattered everywhere! I am also deeply involved in volunteer work in my local community (President of the preschool my children have attended and I help co-ordinate a playgroup for families who have twins/triplets and more).

6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD?
Cindy's Layered Templates - Fun Frames: Love + BONUS VALENTINE FRAMES by Cindy Schneider

7) How did you celebrate your last birthday?
March 7th - In the best way possible... I got to meet my best friend's brand new baby, who was born only a few days earlier. <3

8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you?
Kim B (jak) and Jacinda both create incredible layouts, which are always sparking my creativity. I enjoy seeing their layouts appearing in the Gallery!

9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite?
I enjoy games like this one, where I can actually learn about some of the other scrappers in the SSD community, whose lives I get to get sneak peeks on through their layouts. I find Bingo cards exhausting as I generally don't have enough spare time to complete them (and that makes me feel stressed).

10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favourite songs?
The year was 1996, and there was such an eclectic mix of music I liked back then... Calypso by Spiderbait was an awesome song, Savage Garden were HUGE here, and Spice Girls songs were catchy.

11) What is your favourite sweet?
Peppermint Aero bars.

12) What is the last great book you read?
The Future of Another Timeline by Annalee Newitz

13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list...
Mykonos (Greece), Canada, and London (UK).

14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not?
I participate most months when I download the challenges, however I have never finished one but like the inspiration the prompts give me.

1) Who are you? I'm Laura, an almost 38 yr old mom of two kids (Georgia and James). I stay at home and am the domestic engineer of our household! I love scrapbooking (obviously) but also crochet, read obsessively, cross stitch, and play board games while drinking wine. Oh, and I listen to podcasts while I do almost everything.
2) What do you look like? Here's one of me with my kids from 2 years ago. I pretty much look the same, minus a shorter hair cut.

3) Where are you from? I'm originally from northern CA, where I grew up outside of San Francisco, but after meeting and marrying my husband, we've moved all over the country! We currently reside in the midwest, in Ohio.
4) Who are your favorite people? It's my kids and my husband, who my life revolves around!
5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do. Besides scrapbooking, it's crochet, playing board games, reading, cooking new recipes, and drinking coffee in the early morning hours before anyone else gets up.
6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD? It was the 2020 calendar cards! They're going to make my Project Life album so cool!
7) How did you celebrate your last birthday? My husband took the day off, and I slept in while he got the kids all together for the day, and got them both on the bus. After that, we went and bought the external hard drive, where all my scrapbooking kits, layouts, and ideas live now. He took me to lunch, I drank a few glasses of wine, and then took a long, uninterrupted nap (my favorite!). Then I went out with a few of my besties in town for a casual night at our favorite sports bar.
8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you? In this community? Neverland Scraps' pages are always super inspiring to me. Her clusters are always on point, and I love how she manages to capture so many everyday moments in a sweet way. She celebrates the funny things her kids say, or daily events in a way that I know her kids are going to love looking back on as they grow.
9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite? This is my first time participating in an event like this, so I guess I'm just going to have to wait and see!
10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen. When I was 14, I was obsessed with Hootie and the Blowfish, so here's one of their hit songs I was probably listening to on repeat! https://youtu.be/Ln6WQqRDrCo
11) What is your favorite sweet? Hmmmm, I'm not super into sweets. I'm much more of a cheese and crackers kind of girl. But.... my dessert of choice lately has been frozen yogurt with raspberries, drowning in chocolate syrup.
12) What is the last great book you read? I'm in a book club that meets each month, and we read some really great ones in there. My latest from there that I LOVED was Eternal Life, by Dara Horn. It's about a woman who can never die. If you read The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, you'll love it!
13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list... France, Germany (my husband and I plan to go there for our 20th anniversary), and Alaska.
14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not?
I always try to, though I'm not always successful. I like how they stretch my style, and force me to think outside the box. They add variety to my albums, and keep me connected to the craft I love. The discount for finishing is pretty sweet too! @knittingbec got me hooked on them!

Her talent is over the moon and she's active in the forums and always very positive!

9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite? I sometimes enjoy non-scrap type of challenges like this - I'm not always comfortable doing sketches, probably because I haven't used them much.

I love the challenges and like that I can customize it to what I'm wanting to scrap for the month (rathe than going in a BINGO pattern).

1) Who are you?
Christy
2) What do you look like?

3) Where are you from?
We live in Michigan, way on the west side near Lake Michigan
4) Who are your favorite people?
That would be my family: My husband Tim and our 3 kids, Michael, Jonathan, and Becca.
5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do.
I like to volunteer at my church, hang out with my family and watch movies, scrapbook of course, and play number games like sudoku and kenken
6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD?
I and love and you by Studio Basic - It's not in the shop now, so it must have been at the going, going, gone sale.
7) How did you celebrate your last birthday?
We went out to eat so I didn't have to cook or clean up! However, the restaurant I wanted to go to had a 2 hour wait so we picked my second choice and ate at Red Robin (I love their fries!)
8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you?
People at my church inspire me all the time. Our church has been doing a series of video on members who let their faith impact their work - anything from being an electrician to running a company. These people's stories have really inspired me.
9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite?
Boy, that is hard. My favorite is actually when there is a mix of very different ones: some scrapping, some taking pictures, some hunting through the gallery or store for things. I guess I get easily bored with repetition.
10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen.
Anything by Amy Grant probably - this is the one that keeps going through my head when I think back:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrwfmuusMkk
11) What is your favorite sweet?
Hershey chocolate
12) What is the last great book you read?
This is not great literature, but it helped me a ton at my job and I found it very inspiring:

13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list...
Western US, South Africa, and to be honest, if I could go anywhere it would be back to our family's favorite resort in Florida where we always have so much fun.
14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not?
I haven't been - I went back to full time work a year and a half ago and lost all energy for scrapbooking. I miss it a ton, so I'm trying to get back into it now.

1) Who are you? Martina :-)
2) What do you look like? Aging :-D - started to embrace the gray!
3) Where are you from? Originally from Czech Republic. My husband is American and we have been living past 25 years in Minnesota.
4) Who are your favorite people? My family and my friends.
5) Tell us some of your favorite things to do. Reading, hiking, photography, exploring new places around our home or anywhere in the world. Being with friends and organizing various Czech and Slovak ethnic events celebrating our heritage, sharing it with others, and teaching it to our children.
6) What was the last thing you bought from SSD? Sorry, I can't remember. I have to admit I have very limited free time and budget, use a lot of freebies and am still kind of a beginner scrapbooker. I also love cleaner and simple designs and use mostly just papers, flairs, word art, a very limited number of other elements... Photos are center of my photo books but I started looking at scrapbooking stores and blogs as the backgrounds and elements offered by photo stores are usually not my taste or are too limited.
7) How did you celebrate your last birthday? It was a major life milestone this time. I was celebrating it with my best friend who almost shares the same date/year of birth with me. A few days later I was lucky enough to fly and celebrate it with my parents and sister's family in the Czech Republic.
8) Is there someone in the community who inspires you? Who is it and how do they inspire you? A group of my friends is very generous at volunteering their time and effort for a certain nonprofit organization. At first, I saw joining them regularly like a huge time-commitment away from home but it gave me so many memories, joyful time spent with others, and truly enriched not only my life but especially the life of my whole family as well.
9) What is your favorite kind of challenge or game during events like these? What are your least favorite? As free time is limited, I prefer challenges where I can learn about others (like this one). I am usually not able to scrap even a simple page for a challenge right away plus I am a bit hesitant sharing photos of my family online in public forums.
10) When you were 14, what would have been one of your favorite songs? Give us a link so we can listen. I grew up during communism and at that time it was still quite "cold" around us. 99% of songs we were able to listen to were either in Czech or Slovak. I have to admit that I don't remember my favorite of those years, I wasn't really too much into pop music (the majority of what was on our limited radios...).
11) What is your favorite sweet? Definitely chocolate with WHOLE hazelnuts in it.
12) What is the last great book you read? The Last Year of War.
13) Name 3 places on your travel bucket list... I will never go but it would be my dream: Australia, India, Japan.
14) Do you participate in our passport challenges? Why or why not? I don't, not enough time.
