Tell us about you! I am Flóra Mónika Farkas. I graduated with a Masters degree in Andragogy. I am Hungarian but I live in Slovenia with my fiance. We are a young couple working on fulfilling our dreams. I have been scrapbooking since 2014 and creating layouts since 2015. I am grateful for this hobby and to belong to this worldwide community. 
How did you get started scrapbooking and what do you love about it? One day I was surfing on YouTube and found Kristina Werner and her card videos. I also explored Sizzix and I was totally amazed by that crafty world. In the beginning I made cards, but later I found an online scrapbook workshop and through this I made my first mini album for my mother. Lately I have started to create scrapbook layouts and they became my "areas of expertise". I love to print out the photos and create something physical for myself and for the posterity. I love to time travel via documenting sweet  memories. I really miss my family as we live 435 miles away, but when I am working on a layout, I can bring back the time we spent together. And of course I LOVE all the pretty things that belong to scrapbooking :)
What are some of your scrapbooking accomplishments? I was a guest designer at Pink Pialsee, Crate Paper, and the Like For Ever blog in 2016. I am a design team member of Altenew, Hip Kit Club, and The Cut Shoppe. I have taught in Hungary and Slovakia and I became a teacher for Altenew Academy in 2016. I have been published in Jot Magazine and was highlighted in Issue 14.
Do you have any other hobbies, if so, what are they and why do you enjoy them? Lately I have spent all my free time with scrapbooking. When I need to switch off we travel around Europe or relax on the Croatian seaside. If our time permits we love to cook together.
5 fun and random facts about Flóra:
1. I am in love with seafood.
2. My mother is my best friend. 
3. I have a small orchid collection. I especially like to buy the discounted overblown ones and give them a second chance.
4. My fiance says I am a good cook. I hope so! 
5. I have been afraid of dogs since Füli arrived to our family.
Hi there! It's Flóra here with my very first project as a Paige Evans Design Team member. This time of the year I like to think back and collect the best and most important moments of the past year. I got an idea from the #2016bestnine hashtag so I created a grid design with nine 2x2" photos. For the base I used Take Me Away Paper 15. I cut apart Take Me Away Paper 07 and placed the colorful square as a layer under the photos. This squared patchwork patterned paper is so cool, I love that I don't need to destroy lots of papers just for a small scraps. photo best nine_ffm_10x10.jpg
After I adhered the photos with foam tape I embellished each with many fun elements. I love to mix the Take Me Away and Fancy Free embellishments as they coordinate perfectly. I added lots of die cuts from Take Me Away Ephemera Die Cuts pack and Epoxy Paper ClipsFabric BowsButtonsChipboard Stickers as well.

For the title I used Take Me Away Carefree Alpha Stickers and Fancy Free Fancy Glittered Foam Thickers. To keep the balance I scattered more teal glittered foam shapes all over the page. I always like to add glitter, it makes my projects sparkle!

I hope you like my first project made with Pink Paislee Paige Evans goodies! I really like the result as it turned out so fun and colorful as my past year.
