It's Friday, yippee!! the fabulous Mara-May* interview me, if you want me to interview you just leave a me a comment saying so. So fun!!
1. What would you do differently if you could go back 5 years from today?
I would have continued my graduate education. I regret not continuing on to get my Masters degree after I received my undergratuate degree.

2. If you could change your name would you and if yes what would it it be and why?
No, I love my name and I think it suits me (very well) even though I get called Victoria, Vanessa and Monica. I don't think my name is that hard to remember. LOL

3. If you weren't a scrapbooker how would that change your life now?
I think I would have found another creative outlet doing something. But I am so glad that I am a scrapbooker, recording my thoughts for my family and myself. I am so blessed because of this passion for this craft, I have met some amazing friends and opportunities.

4. Have you ever set what you consider a high hope and achieved it?
Yes, I was the first person in my family to graduate with a college degree. When I walked across the stage to receive my diploma I was walking for my mother, father, grandmother, aunts and uncles before me who weren't able to pursue higher education because they were not allowed or did not have the money. I was so proud to be a role model for my sister as well. I wanted to show her she could do it too. Even though she is a total brain and I knew she would do it as well! :) She did her master's and undergrad in five years. ;)

5. Where do you call your perfect place to be (real or fantasy)?
The BEACH!!! I am so going to retire to an island or resort when I am older. I love the beach and how relax and carefree I am when I am there. I love the sounds, warmth and solitude. That is my perfect place, preferable in the carribean. ;)

AWESOME news to share. I am the Visiting Chef Designer at Scrapbook Takeout for June. Can't tell you how excited I am to work these talented ladies. Pre-orders for the June Kit can made here.
