Boy!! Have I been waiting a long time to get this lady on the team, please make welcome another new DT member!!!

Peggy Schenkels

Here's some info about Peggy :)

Hi, my name is Peggy, and I live in Antwerp, Belgium. I'm 38 years old, wife to Kurt, we've been together for nearly 20 years now, and SAHM to three beautiful children, the loves of my life. My son Yannis is 10, my daughter Chloƫ is 9, and my daughter Christina will turn 8.
In the beginning of 2008, I was searching the net, trying to come up with ways to liven up my photo albums when I came across some scrapbooking sites... The rest is history, I was hooked immediately. Ever since, I've been obsessed about everything that has to do with scrapbooking. I love making pages of today's happenings which will once be fading memories, I love working with my hands, being creative, but what I love most about it is seeing myself grow, trying out new techniques and finding out which things I love most. I've been into doodling, a litte while back I didn't think a LO looked finished without adding some stitching, and lately I've been wanting to slap paint on every single LO. The only thing I would like to change is the fact that I'm such a slow scrapper! It takes me days to finish a LO, even if I'm not really working on it, I'll leave it somewhere where I can see it in passing, trying to find ways to improve it. I admire people who can make little works of art in a matter of hours, minutes even, but that's never going to happen, I know LOL. Stil, I've accepted this, and now for me all that really matters is that I myself like the end result. Bottom line, scrapping makes me happy!
If you'd like to see more of my work, you can come and visit me at my blog:

Xxx Peggy

Here are just a few of Peggy's extraordinary layouts. Please visit Peggy's blog you really will be amazed!! I love her work because it is arty and creative. Peggy also scraps the goodtimes and even the bad and she is not ashamed to put down on paper exactly how she feels!
I would have to say that she is my scrapbooking role model :)

In my Daughter's Eyes
