We actually had two LOTW winners this week!

Congrats to our winning layouts!!


kmp1966What an amazing, purpley layout!



aevans96A perfect fall layout!

Today we are going to take the time to get to know aevans96!

What is your name? Angela

Where do you live? Pennsylvania

Do you have a blog?

How long have you been scrapping?
I started paper scrapping about 8 years ago and switched to Digi in March of this year.

What is your favorite GingerScraps product?
There’s a few. I really love the kits The Solider and Jack O’Lantern. But outside of kits I love the Cardboard by Harmonystar.

What is your scrapping weakness?
Using Brackets lol. I see others use them and they look great. But I just hit a wall If I have to use them.

Scrapping strength?
I guess I’m best at extractions. I’m getting pretty fast. I did 2 for a SS.

What is your favorite LO you’ve ever made (besides this winning one?) Well I have 3 favoriates but If I have to choose one I guess I would choose ‘Beauty’


I did it a SS back in August and It’s one of the 1st LO’s I ever printed. It’s my Friends Daughter. Matter of fact most of my LO’s come from SS’s lol. I guess I think to hard on my own.

What is on your mouse pad? It’s plain black.

How do you like your eggs cooked? Scrambled

If you could do any kind of work and knew you wouldn’t fail, what would you do?
Getting a job in Graphic Design in someone’s business or being successful at my own making stuff for others.

What’s something that can always make you feel better?
Scrapbooking lol. It’s a total stress reliever for me.

If you could have one super power, what would it be?
My initial reaction is to read people’s minds. But, I think my feelings would get hurt to know what some people think. Not to mention would it ever be quite? lol. I think that I would have to choose teleporting. I think it would be great after a long day of shopping with tons of bags. Instead of walking to the car and then driving all the way home I would just teleport me and my stuff. I think it would come in really handy. Plus I would save money on hotels 🙂

It is so great to get to know you better Angela!!  Thanks for playing!

Okay, so I have no idea why all of a sudden this blog post wants to write in italics, but I guess we’ll just have to go with it because I’m not starting over and for some reason they won’t turn off! Knowing my luck, I’ll sit here and complain about it and it will be perfectly normal once I hit publish.. haha!

Anyway, did you know that Ginger Scraps features a Speed Scrap everyday of every month? Isn’t that absolutely amazing? (Due to the fact that we missed part of September and October, some of those have been rescheduled or canceled in order for us to get completely caught up.) But, have no fear! There are still plenty to go around for the rest of October and we’ll be in full swing again come November. Here’s a look at the coming week:
