My name is Astrid Zwaan, I live in the Netherlands with my boyfriend, 3 kids, 3 dogs and 3 cats. I’m 47years old and run our own business. The last 10 years became scrapbooking a part of my life and I still love doing it....It gives me time to relax. I always choose the clean and simple way te scrap but about 6 months ago I discovered that I had a connection with mixed media projects .If I have to describe my style, then I will say “clean & simple” with a touch of romance. If joined a couple of design teams here in the Netherlands, and when I did that my designs started to be published in one of the largest scrapbook magazine’s here in the Netherlands. When I got the message that I was chosen to be part of the Let's Get Sketchy design team I was so excited, I can't hardly wait to get started. I’ve you are interested in my designs please visit http://getbustedatalltimes.blogspot.nl/

Well I am a 29 year old mother of four amazingly, crazy little ones. Two boys and two girls. The boys are the oldest, there 10 and 7. My girls are 4 and 2. So we have a busy house hold with 6 people and 4 animals. But I would never change it for anything in this world! They are my life and give me all the inspiration and reason to do what I love. I grew up in Alaska on a tiny island and my mom started me on scrapbooking when I was 9 to give me something to do and keep me out of trouble and it worked. I slacked off for a few years when we moved to Alabama and I was in high school, but I started scraping again before I left school, pics of my friends and family. Shortly after I started a family of my own and got more engrossed with scrapping and making pretty home decor. So I've been scrapping for around 20 years, but slacked some in the middle. lol We now live in Arkansas. I love to scrapbook and not just the big moments, birthdays, holidays, family reunions and stuff. But the little stuff, I love the little stuff. I want my kids to look back threw there albums when there older and see the major things but also the little things. Pictures they never knew I took, sleeping, playing there games, sitting around watching tv, cuddling and just goofyness. I love what can be done with papers and a few embellishments to make something fantastic!
