FEATURED DESIGNER Hello, I am Elisabeth, music teacher at day, scrapper at night, wife to Daniel (for 16 years) and mother to two wonderful bundles of energy in my heart. I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Vienna (Austria/Europe). My days start very early (my kids get up around 5am) and they are full to the rim. Scrapbooking is therapy for me to take a break from my busy life. I scrap on a platform built above our bed and is called my sanctuary. I don't have a specific style, I scrap everything depending on the photos, the papers and my mood. We asked Elisabeth: I started scrapbooking in: 2006 My scrap item(s) must have are/is: patterned paper and flowers. What I love most about this hobby: It relaxes me, makes me focus on the bright side of life and I preserve memories in a special way. Favorite source of inspiration: our children! Seriously, I have 25.000 photos on my laptop and 90% are of my children. I will be 90 and still scrapping childhood memories! What I love most about LGS: is the weekly inspiration and the challenge to leave my comfort zone If I wasn't scrapping I would: be building doll houses
