Welcome, Maria!

This week we are so happy to have Maria Burke as our guest blogger. She has a lot to teach us, and I think we'll all be able to enjoy what she has to share. She currently resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada). Below, she gives a link to her blog so be sure to look through the past few months to see projects and photos. Today's post is a little intro, so here she is, Maria Burke.

I'm super excited to be a guest blogger here for the next week. I can't wait to show you some new scrapbook projects I've been working on and share a bit about what inspires me. Since writing my own bio is just a little too frightening for me, I had my husband do it ;-). Check out my blog The Little Things to see more of what I've been up to.

(from Maria's husband, Phil)
"Maria Burke can hang a frame straight without using a level. That is something that has always impressed me. If I hang a picture up, using a level, there's still no guarantee it will be straight. Maria has always had an eye for design. She loves to play with paint colors and move furniture around in our house. We've painted every room in our house at least twice (some a lot more) and re-arranged furniture even more. She has always had a passion for photography, which she inherited from her dad who is an amazing photographer. He bought her her first SLR camera when she was in junior high.

"When our first daughter was born, Maria started to scrapbook. It was something that combined her eye for design, love of photography and a passion for documenting our lives. Maria has been scrapbooking for almost seven years now and our two daughters are following in her footsteps. I can already see their artistic sides developing and they have their mom to thank for that."
