Fabulicious DT Member: Evgenia Petzer

Well it would seem this morning that Winter has truly come to bite us with this chilly cold weather and too think some of us are going camping this extra long weekend...

Please let me introduce you to another Fabulicious DT Member from Russia now living in South Africa...Evgenia Petzer

About Evgenia:
'I am 27 years old and for more then a year we are living in South Africa, its the native country of my husband. I absolutely love this sunny country, although I was born and raised in Russia.
Scrapbooking is definitely my passion (if not obsession-lol) I scrap almost every single day. I am a photographer, so have lots of time to stay at home and to scrap. I am a mom of a 3 year old boy, so lots of my pages are about him, but I also love to make layouts about me as well as cards. My style is more shabby chic, retro.

Please feel free to stop over my blog '

Wishing you an awesome day,
Love From FabScraps

Fabulicious DT Member: Erika Taylor

Good Morning this overcast & cool Monday morning!
I would like to feature and introduce to you each one of our Fabulicious Design Team members, one day at a time ;-)  In no particular order.....ERIKA TAYLOR!

About Erika By Erika:

'Cutting rings of paper to create garland, making ghost gum from glue, and adding a little too much glitter to any heart I drew. The creative bug bit me at a very early age and I've never looked back. Hi everyone, I'm Erika Taylor and I'm a craftaholic!!! In 2008, I decided to start paper crafting and one thing led to another. I’m blessed to have been on numerous design teams over the past few years and I'm expanding my own creative muse to include so much more than just cards and scrapbook layouts. I love getting inked up to create mixed media projects and if I can alter something, I will.
 I live in Southern Alberta with my loving and supportive husband Mark and our 2 boisterous children age 4 and 7. Anything to do with Vampires and the Fantasy Realm gets my attention, and yes that includes Twilight! I love Italian Sweet Cream in my coffee and there is nothing better than Tiramisu. I'm moved by the colors around me, emotions and the media. Creatively, I embrace change and love to try new things and I'm super excited about being a part of this amazing adventure. Grab your favorite beverage and stop by my blog for a visit'

Till tomorrow,
