I Wanna Talk About Me!

Love that Toby Keith song.....I wanna talk about me, me, me, me.

But seriously, who am I? My name is Kathleen Marie, but I go by Katt. People in the scrap world, if they know me, know me by scrapnkitty. I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife, a mother, a friend. I am a scrapbooker. DUH, why else would you be here.

I was born and raised on the South side of Chicago, IL. I went to Catholic school for 12 years. I am the middle child of three girls. My best friend is my little sister. I am still friends with my bff from grade school, though we live 2000 miles away from each other.

I am a loner. I am a night owl. I do not choose to be either, that's just how it is. I do not make friends easily. I am not a morning person. I suffer from depression and use my hobby/passion as therapy. My mood often comes through on my layouts.

I live to create, I create to live. I have a family that loves me for who I am. And I love them with my entire being. They are the reason I scrap. I want to cherish every waking moment of our lives, because life is just too short not to. Every page may not be perfect in the visual aspect, but every page is perfect in the sense that I told the story an will continue to carry the memory.

I am selfish. I admit it. I live for the praise from others. I need to feel loved. Doesn't everybody? Sure I scrap for me and my family, but I scrap for you too. Don't get me wrong, I am very giving as well. I love admiring the hard work and creativity of others as well. I have more friends online than I do in real life......that's just sad.

Wow pity party or what? Sorry I am completely rambling.

Here are two layouts that I have completed that are about me. Yes just me. I want to be remembered too.

I guess I should get out in the real world and make some friends.......

Be MIne....Doodle Dragon Challenge #1

Hey everybody! I just wanted to show you my card for the first challenge over at Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge Blog. What is Doodle Dragon Studios Challenge Blog, you ask?? It is the new challenge blog by digi stamp and now rubber stamp creator Dustin Pike! Hop on over to both places and you will be amazed at the wonderful stamps you find there!

Dustin sent me this really cute Bear stamp. I colored him with Bic Mark-its and pop dotted him off the card for a little dimension.

Let's start over!

Yep, that's my motto for 2010! Let's Start Over. I am starting a lot of things over. First I am healthier in 2010. I quit smoking!! Yay me!!! I am working out. I finally kicked depression's ass, and found meds that really work. I have never been happier! I have started scrapping for others, and actually making money at it!

I am actually scrapping again. In the first 21 days of the new year, I have completed 11 layouts for me, 3 for a client, and one card. It feels AWESOME! I am learning some new techniques. I am using a lot of sketches. I am participating in challenges. I almost feel like the old me.

I am still unemployed, but not beating myself over it....I kinda like it. And it gives me more time with my favorite little person, CJ.

So, you want to see what I have accomplished in the last 3 weeks? Here ya go!


Thanks for stopping by!
