Here is the first of our new DT members......

Deb Clark

I can hardly believe the joy that is in my life, especially the love I have for paper crafts, scrap booking & card making.
Scrap booking came as a revelation to me in early 2003, & I haven’t spent one day since then, when I don’t work on, or plan a page or a card, or read a scrap booking mag, or hop on my blog, or check out the net for ideas.
I mainly work on LO’s of my long lasting & very dear husband, grown up children & their partners & families, & the 5 kitty cats we have between us. I really love scrapping the few photos of the early life of my parents, & also pages about my garden, or buildings or beautiful scenery.
I have met the most amazing women along my scrap booking way, & I am constantly in awe of their work, which in turn inspires me to try new ideas & techniques.
I love simple clean lines, but I also love shabby distressed LO’s as well - you can tell I am a Gemini, the best of both worlds, I reckon! I love using fabric, & ribbons & laces, paint on CS & paper, & my go-everywhere-with-me distressing kit & of course cutter!!
I really hope to be able to add a little something to this fabulous ARTastic challenge blog, & thank you Shazza for giving me the opportunity.
You can catch me at
Cheers, Deb
