Design Team Member Spotlight

Hi! My name is Zoa Barker and I am really excited to be on the Design Team for Everything Scrappn'! I am very passionate about art, and scrapping gives me the perfect outlet for expressing it. I love the creative process & my style is constantly evolving, but mostly very girly. My scrapping "must haves" are flowers, bling, ribbon and lace on my layouts. {I am a total Prima Junkie!} I love distressing, painting, inking, and sewing on my pages as well.

I have been very blessed to have been on several design teams; including kit clubs, challenge blogs; online stores and manufacturers. My work has been published several times in Scrapbook News & Review, where I was a featured scrapper there in Oct. 2008. I have also been featured on ScrapScene, Just Your Average Scrapbook and several other scrapbooking blogs.

How long have you been scrapping?
13 years

Are your married, have kids, pets?
I have been married for almost 12 years to Matt, and we have 4 children (ages 2-10). We also have a Pomeranian: Bella, and 4 cats: Scratch, Hunny, Jack Sparrow & Sassy

What would you say your scrapping style is?
My style is very girly! I love anything PRIMA! Flowers, bling, lace, ribbon etc. I love the Shabby Chic look!

Do you have a designer that inspires you?
There are so many amazing scrappers out there that I gain my inspiration from- whenever I am stuck, I go to the Bad Girls Design Team Gallery and get some mojo! Those girls are awesome!!!

Give us some randomness about you……
My husband and I are currently enrolled in Bible School to be youth pastors at our church. We love the teenagers and really enjoy working with them!
Another random: I love Peppermint Mochas from Starbucks and I am addicted to anything chocolate and cherry pull n peel twizzlers!!

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.

Do you have a quick recipe? email me
