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!

Ohhhhhhhhhhh and *sigh*....I do have sad sad sad sad sad news to share today also....Lisa....my sweet, GORGEOUS Lisa has decided to step down from FAVE THINGS!! :(:(:(:(:( *sniff sniff* ...

Thanks, I was just popping over to leave my link! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!!

Jenna Ruth said...

Fun challenge! Here's my layout:

Unknown said...

I Looooovvveee al the DT work! It was great fun watching this all and I might give it a try myself. Hmm...I hardly get a ride in a car ever...just a taxi sometimes andy they suck, because I have to pay way too much to what I can spend LOL
Anyway...you asked about what we Dutch give our boys for feed... it reminded me of a commercial back in the 80's, which had the slogan "Pindakaas, daar word je groot en sterk van" which means:
"Peanutbutter, it makes you big and strong"
In the commercial there was a little boy who tried to skate on the ice and then a Dutch skating-champion passed on his skates as the boy just took his peanutbutter sandwich and the champion says something about the boy eating such a delicious thing and the boy says: "yeah...they say it makes you big and strong.." So I guess it must be the Calvé Peanutbutter that made your boy that tall and strong LOL!!!
