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 September is.....

LaQuette Akins  AKA QT

Here is a bit about QT:

My name is LaQuette “QT” Akins. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 8 years and together we have 2 children.  I am an engineer by day and a scrapbooker at night. I have been indulging in all forms of art since I was a little girl. When planning my wedding, the idea of designing my own wedding invites lead me into my first scrapbook store ever.  I was amazed at all the products and papers that the store carried. That’s when I decided to investigate this craft of preserving pictures of my family.  My obsession with scrapbooking and cardmaking didn’t truly form until 2006 with the birth of my daughter. I was a SAHM at that time and wanted to preserve every sweet memory of my daughter life.

In 2009, with the birth of my son, my desire for a creative outlet grew stronger and I was able to manage scrapbooking and making invites on a more consistent basis. As I started following blogs, I ran across a blog post for Swirlydoos Kits and I fell in love. So I joined the Swirlydoos forums in November 2010 and by January 2011 I was subscribing faithfully to Swirlydoos. The members at Swirlydoos always made me feel so welcome and at home. I feel like I gained many friends and sisters while being a member and actively participating in the challenges.

I feel that my style is more Shabby Chic but it is forever growing and changing.  I love using different mediums on my projects while learning new techniques. Scrapbooking has truly become a part of my everyday life. I love to be inspired and love to inspire others as well with my work. Please visit my blog at any time:
