Welcome our May Guest Alissa Fast!

***the BPC Giveaway below is still open! and there's another one on Facebook and TWO MORE at Moxie Fab World!***

Today we welcome the mini-album fashionista, Alissa Fast, to the Inspiration Blog! Alissa is our May JBS Mercantile Guest and we are super excited about her creativity! Here are a few lovely words and images from Alissa and you can absolutely look forward to more inspiration from her when we have gallery updates on the 10th!

"a little about me. i live in Ferndale, Washington. which is in the far northwest corner, of the state and the country, next to Canada and the Pacific Ocean. it's the perfect place to live! i live with my dear hubby of, almost, 24 years and our cute little cat, who just happens to be a Hurricane Katrina survivor from New Orleans. I have been scrapbooking, in one form or another, for as long as i can remember. as a teenager i user to cut stuff out of magazines to embellish my photo albums. i LOVE taking photos and have recently started taking them professionally. on a very small scale, of course, but it's a start."

"i am a collector of vintage things. especially As, 2s & 3s, cameras, rulers and globes. my scrap area is not only full of paper and stickers and scrap stuff, but it's got it's fair share of all these little vintage treasures all over the place."

"i love the 7gypsies portfolio folders that came in the project kit and i have had a great time creating my Easter 2011 mini book with it and the rest of the kit, including the ephemera pack from Pink Paislee. really fun stuff! i can't wait to show you all the completed project!"

"i couldn't just narrow it down to 1, so, here are my 2 current favorites. they are both from Easter this year and are included in my projects this month. the one of my hubby and our niece with his birthday pie is not technically perfect, but i just love the light and the feeling i get when i look at it. our niece, Hannah, loves us so much and it's evident, in this photo, that she thinks Uncle Steve is pretty cool. she is such a good helper with birthday candles and opening of gifts, too."

"the second one is of Hannah on Easter after her BIG HUNT. She's the only little one, who is not a baby, in the family right now and the 2 baskets of goodies is just symbolic of how we all feel about her. i also love the colors in the photo and the smile on her face and in her gorgeous blue eyes."
Pin It!
