Today's Customer Spotlight is on Birgit. Join us as we get to know a bit more about her and her scrapping style.

  Name: Birgit

  Alias : Meibritt

  Country: I live in Germany

  Favorite PRD Kit or Product:
  This is not easy to answer.
  I like many of Mirijam's products. 
  But spontaneously I think of the
  Dog Eared Alpha,  Gone To The
  Beach Journal Cards and the Feel
  The Breeze Papers.
  Yes, these are my favorite products!

How long have you been scrapping?
I started in February 2006. My first grandson was just 3 months old and I wanted every special moment of his life in the limelight. I found, on the internet, a German forum. At first I just downloaded freebies, but soon I started to buy in various stores one or the other kit. Eventually I ended up at the Lilypad and remained there until today.

What is your go to product? Something that seems to find it’s way on many of your pages?[stitches, tags, patterned papers, doodles, paint, etc]
I like fancy stitching, patterned papers and goodies to put emphasis on things. In Mirjam's products, I find all of this.

What would your dream kit be, if you could have any kit created for you?
This really is not easy to answer. At Christmas time, Christmas kits are my desire, in winter snow kits, in spring I like Easter kits ..... yes an Easter kit would be nice. Or a communion kit. We have, in the family this year, a communicant.

Best scrapbooking trick you learned.
I love playing with brushes and styles. Sometimes I edit a photo with overlays. But the best trick is to play with the shadows. I think it is fascinating how realistic the elements can look with shadow work.

Random facts that we might not know about you?
1. I wanted to become a midwife, but I changed my mind and made an apprenticeship as a hairdresser.
2. I have five grandchildren, four boys and a girl.
3. I have a young dog and an old cat. With the dog I visit a dog school. We'll be doing dog tricks and searching for objects.
