Our winner and our May guest designer :):):):):):):):):)

Hi everyone! :):):):):):):):)

As most of you know, blogger was having major issues yesterday, so my apologies to our May guest designer as I wanted to post her introduction yesterday, but couldn't... so, I am doing it today! :):):):):):):):):)

Anne Pennington is our May guest designer! I 'found' this girl a few months ago, and just have fallen in LOVE with her creations! Thanks Anne for being our GDT this month! :):):):) Here is what Anne has to say about herself:

"I grew up in a military family, with lots of opportunity to travel and live 
around Canada and Europe - but I love my life in a small village in Ontario, 
Canada where my kids have been free to roam and play or hang out with their 
friends. I am a mother of five great kids, two still at home and attending 
high school. I am a publisher and have been involved with print design and 
training for years. I believe in life-long learning, and I study part-time 
at Queen’s University. 
I have been scrapbooking for 3 years.  A couple of girlfriends from school 
days invited me to scrap with them for a week 3 years ago, and I told them I’d 
rather gouge my eyes out.  They bribed me with wine, and so I came out to 
visit. From that moment on I have been passionate about scrapbooking. 
I have met so many awesome new friends through my passions of scrapbooking 
and photography! My favourite scrapbooking subjects are my children and my 
beautiful mother, who passed away in 2009. 
These are a Few of my Favorite Things has been one of my favourite challenge 
blogs since I discovered it a few months back!!! Thanks for always 
challenging me to define myself and my passions in life with your thought 
provoking scrapbooking prompts!" 
And thanks to Sara Zenger for being our April GDT! :):):):):):)
