I’m Lory and I come from Italy! I knew scrapbooking in 2003 thanks a friend and a little journey in a Funfair Park where I was attracted by a scrapbooking book full of colors and of die cuts! Since then I made a long Internet research about this hobby and I was really lucky to discover a new wonderful world!
Since then my life is changed! Scrapbooking is become my lifestyle, it helped me in bad moments, like my dad’s death, I met new good friends around the world by Internet, all thanks to scrapbooking.
I love scrapbooking because it makes me happy, free, with the scrapbooking I forget all the ordinary worries, all the bad thoughts and only the page, the photos, the story about the photo exist! I loves to be sitting down on my chair, close to door of my scraproom and be in my scrapbook space with music in background to scrapbook her pages full of colors, of several and sometimes unusually materials. All for fun and for relaxing!
I have a big dream: to can teach around the world, it should change my life, I’d do what I really want to do! In Italy I have an online website and I have organized an international convention of scrapbooking and mixed media for three years (2008-2010) knowing the most famous scrapbookers and enjoying so much everything! It was a dream came true! I am solar, joyful, full of things to do but I love my everyday life even if something is not like I would. I got married last July with the love of my life and now I have a new cute home that I improve day by day. I love my life even if I am not a Hollywood star! LOL

One of my best friends had a family member that loved the USA and that introduced her the scrapbooking, my friend introduced me scrapbooking and in that park I bought my first scrapbooking book, I remember yet,this book had the paperkins inside to cut!! So much time ago!!! Since then I became a scrapholic!!!!
