Wow can you believe we are in the second month of 2009 already? We love February because not only is it the month of love and Valentines but it is the month we opened our sweet spot three years ago! Although we may have changed a few things along the way, one thing we have strived to stay consistent about is finding ways to help inspire you to create pages about your life stories; which is another reason why we love our monthly Treat of the Month highlights! Not only do we get to learn a little more about some of the wonderful scrappers we have out there in our community, but we have a new gallery to give us ideas for our next masterpiece!
On that note, we are really excited to bring you this month's highlight - the incredibly talented Amy Stoffel! Although Amy has only been digi-scrapping less than a year, her distinct sense of style is evident as you browse through her rather gorgeous and extensive gallery. We highly recommend you spend some time taking it all in because Amy definitely has an uncanny ability to carefully place just the right amount of elements on a page without making it look too cluttered. Her special talent allows us the opportunity to see the wonderful photos of her family and loved ones! We particularly love the way Amy crops her photos or creatively frames them to show off the different expressions on her familys' faces and we know you'll find yourself smiling back at the cute little faces of her children! To create her pages from her home in Arizona, Amy uses Photoshop 7 and her camera of choice is a Kodak C743. We know you will enjoy reading our interview with Amy and we look forward to seeing the pages you create this month in our TOTM gallery!

Sweet Shoppe Designs also asked Amy to share some of her favorite creations with our visitors. It's fascinating to look through someone's gallery with our own eyes but seeing what an artist particularly enjoys from her own collection is always intriguing...
|If you would like to see more of Amy's wonderful layouts,
be sure to visit her Digi Shop
Talk Gallery, where you'll find her amazing collection of inspiring pages. It's been
such a pleasure to see the fabulous layouts our SugarBabes have created
after spending some time looking through her gallery! Those layouts
will be featured throughout the month on our homepage so be sure to
check them out each time you visit!
Also, don't forget to Scrap with our SugarBabes the entire month of February by picking out a layout you want to lift from Amy's gallery! Once you're done, be sure to post in our special challenge thread for the first of the month so you earn points toward Sweet Rewards! Thanks for sharing yourself and your beautiful work with us Amy, it was such a treat getting to know one of our favorite scrappers better!
