So we asked Tara a few questions so we can get to know her a little better.
1) Tell us a bit about yourself. What got you started in scrapbooking?
My name is Mayumi. I was born in Brazil but live in Japan since 1990. I love arts in general and scrapbooking is my passion. I knew scrap in a arts and crafts store 5 years ago, but only later that my children had been born that I started to make many LO's. They are my great inspirations..

2) What three supplies would you not scrap without?
Paper, scissors and glue :)

3) What is your favorite part about scrapbooking?
The best thing for me in scrapbooking is to keep the memories of all phases of my children, I want to make beautifull albums of them. I choose photos that touch my heart and I try to count a little of the history of these moments in my LO's.
Beyond having this delicious form to preserve our better moments, make scrap is a great pleasure!

4) What are your favorite products and manufacturers?
There are so many wonderful options...When I go to a scrap shop look like a child in the playground :)
Some of the brands I have used lately are Prima, Websters Pages, Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, Rouge de Garance and October afternoon.

5) tell us about scrapbooking [art and craft] in your country - Japan.
Here in Japan, there are many lovers of arts. Whenever I can participate in Crops, events, crafts and stamps fairs....Every year we have the Hobby Show and Stamp Carnival and in these events has a lot of scrapbooking supplies, everything to make me crazy :)

Thank you for sharing your beautiful work with us.
