Our New DT Members

Please extend a very warm welcome to the newsest members of the Sketches With color Design Team!!

I was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB Canada.  By day I am in Marketing for a large Insurer and by night, I enjoy taking care of my family, scrapbooking, taking bubble baths and wearing sweats as much as humanly possible!  I dabbled in Performance Art for a long time, and then made the switch to paper crafting in 2006 to express myself creatively and have never looked back.  I have enjoyed developing my work over the years, although I still find it difficult to exclusively define my style.  I just love paper and making pretty things!  I work best when challenged, and am looking forward to sharing my creativity with everyone.  

My name is Surama and I live in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with my mom, my young sister and two cats. I'm single, no children.  I work in publicity at my own company: an agency of events and promotional marketing. I've been scrapping since 2006 and never stopped. In the little spare time I have, I'm with my papers, scissors and glue. For me, scrapbooking is fun, it is my pleasure and my joy.  Good memories and special moments of my life with my family and friends are the theme of my layouts.  In addition to scrapbooking, I love listening to music, watching movies and going out with friends.  I am happy to be a part of this team. I hope I can inspire you.

I'm Devra.  I am a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest). I've been scrapbooking for about 15 years. For me, scrapping is not just about the photos, and stories. It's also my stress release, my creative outlet, my happy place.  My style is constantly evolving and changing because I like to try new things.  But one thing you will always find in my pages is humor.  The main topics in my scrapbooks are my family. My husband, our two boys and our dog.  They give me more than enough material to keep me going.   When I'm not scrapping, I'm caring for my family, reading a good book, watching a baseball game, and always thinking about the beach.  I'm excited to be a part of Sketches With Color. This will be a great challenge for me as well.
