What would Swirlydoos be without our wonderful subscribers?!? It's a pleasure getting to know these ladies on the forums and from the stories they tell through their layouts. Yes,we are an amazing community, but most of all, we're a family! We appreciate each and every member and they deserved to be spotlighted. With that being said, our featured member for July is.....

Here is a bit about Barbara:
Hi everyone, I am so happy for this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I live with my husband of 43 years and my youngest son who was born with Down Syndrome. Our older Son and our beautiful 6 year old Granddaughter live nearby. We are retired and enjoying our many hobbies, fortunately for me my husbands’ hobby is photography (And cooking…TeeHee! are ya jealous yet?) We love gardening, boating, traveling, entertaining friends and family, walking our dog Lucy and taking pictures of it all. I have boxes of beautiful pictures that we have taken over the years. I have told myself I have to scrapbook…oh, but it seemed so overwhelming. Then I saw what the DT was doing with pictures at Swirlydoos and was blown away! Such artistic creations! I had to give it a try. I joined Swirlydoos in January of 2012. One by one I would pick a picture from our boxes and digital archives and now I have many wonderful albums of our past memories. I could quit now…mission accomplished…but no, it has become a part of me. The wonderful friends I have made in the forum mean so much to me. The inspiration I get from the challenges gives me ideas I could never think of on my own. I love it here! As for my style I would say I am still searching for it! I love it all…fussy cutting, adding the mediums to extend the pictures, using the gorgeous papers and layering. It is such a fabulous hobby, always changing and evolving.
Thank you Swirlydoos, you give more than I ever imagined! and DT you are the best!
Here are a some of my favorite projects of Barbara's, sure to inspire you!!Please come back and visit every first Sunday of the month to see who our next featured member will be!
