Hi!! I am Patricia Oliveira. I am 37 years old and live in Brazil with my hubby, Junior, my daughter Sabrina (7)  and my son Jean Carlo (4).
I started scrapbooking in 2002, when my daughter was born, I love digiscrap and traditional scrap!
At this moment I want to relax and enjoy with my creations.
 I don't have a particular style (I think). I love to do experience with materials, textures, colors and play with photos and scenaries...
I only know that my style is not clear and simple, I love using lots of things together!
 Thanks for inviting me!
