Born to Shop!

It is a new month, and time to announce our next Design Team Member, Lynette Jacobs! We are so priviliged to have this lady as part of our team!  She is very talented and serves on several Design Teams.  She created the layout above with our November kit.  The step-by-step tutorial will follow later this week. Here is a little bit more about her.....

Hello, my name is Lynette Jacobs and I live in Port Elizabeth. If I have to name what my passions are in would be my family, my walk with the Lord, photography, scrapbooking and the work we do in our community.  I have been married to my childhood sweetheart Kobus for the past 33 years and we have three grown children.  I adore my family and have been blessed with 5 gorgeous grandchildren (and another on the way in June).  They are my pride and joy and the subject of most of my scrapping.

My husband and I founded a non-profit organization in 1998 that provides for the needs of nearly 580 homeless and poor people whom we house at the Mission.  I still stand amazed at what the Lord has done and is doing on a daily basis at the mission. After 14 years of working in the Mission, I have still not gotten used to the heartbreak and brokenness of the people that cross our paths. This work is very stressful and emotional and scrapbooking provides me with much needed stress-relief and recharges my batteries.. 

I started scrapbooking in 2005 when I enrolled to receive monthly scrapbook kits.  I love that my hobby can give me so much pleasure and at the same time create a legacy for my children and grandchildren.  I would describe my scrapping style as clean and uncluttered.  I love using embellishments but my photos will always take center stage.  I am thrilled to be part of the Scrapbook Studio design team.
