DT Intro - Kathy Skou

Hi Everyone!  I'm Kathy Skou and words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of the Paper Issues Team! 

I live in Medway, MA with my husband, my 14 (almost 15!!!) year old daughter and our two crazy kitty cats!  I started scrapping about 10 years ago when I fled Corporate America to stay at home.  My girlfriend dragged me to a home scrapbooking party, promised me I would just love it, and she was right!  I'm mostly a layout girl, but I've been known to do some altered projects and cards here and there.  If I had to describe my style, I'd say playful or happy...I love adding a little whimsy to my projects!

When we were asked to share 5 random facts about ourselves, I thought it would be fun to put those in a layout!

Here's the facts:
1.  My name is Kathy and I am a crazy cat lady!
2.  I'm secretly jealous of my daughter's ability to take awesome selfies!
3.  I am addicted to coffee.
4.  My husband and I are huge Jimmy Buffett fans and we go see him every year.. grass skirts and all.
5.  I've been friends with my husband since we were 15 years old. (we didn't date until we were 21)!
I used a lot of fun goodies from the Paper Issues Store on my layout including:  Snippits Instagram Polaroid Frames from Studio Calico; Speech Bubbles from Studio Calico; and Blue Grid Washi Tape.  Check out these goodies and a whole slew of others in the Paper Issues Etsy Shop!  Use my code KATHYS for 20% off!
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love it if you came to visit me over at my blog here!
