I have a list, as long as my arm, of my absolute scrapbook favourites. But there is always one blog and one girl whom I have to hunt down every month just so I can admire her creations with one of the best kit clubs in the world - Studio Calico. Her name? Nicole Samuels. She is a true a hidden treasure in a cave of scrapbooking jewels. I love that she doesn't leap and bound across so many scrapbooking mediums to proclaim her brilliance. In fact, I am loathe to share her with you because I ought to just keep her for myself.I hope she won't mind me "borrowing" her pictures from her blog. Im sure she won't. I've spent time with Nicole at CHA in 2009. Did we laugh or did we laugh during those 4 days? Honestly, my ribs still hurt from incessant laughter.
She has four adorable children. This picture of her youngest crying amongst a halloween "get together" cracks me up.
She is becoming a very special photographer. Her picture, here, of her daughter Cait is just breathtaking.
and here is the reason why I love her work. Her layouts always have something unique about them, you really ought to look at her entire back catalogue - amazeballs.
This double layout is a total and utter work of art.
Do you have a secret scrapbook crush? Go on, tell me.
