Design Team Introduction: Katherine Blue

Happy Monday!!!
We hope you had a wonderful weekend!!!
Today we are excited to introduce one our new talented team members!!!
Welcome Katherine Blue
"My crafty name is Kate Blue, (or Queen Kat as my friends playfully call me since I love all things Snow White and the Evil Queen) coming from the great state of Maryland! In my previous life, I was an accountant until 7 years ago when I became a stay at home mom to care for my son had some serious ongoing health issues. So, I am now a wife, mom, semi home schooler, special needs advocate, cook, chauffeur and more to my two children and husband. I have been scrapping/crafting for about 7 years as well; I never considered myself artsy EVER (I can't even draw a stick person LOL) but came into scrapbooking accidentally when it was suggested that I look into it as a way to relieve the high stress levels I had since my son had been hospitalized/ill for almost two years. After 6 months of collecting supplies and a Scrapbook 101 class, I was hooked! I generally stick to scrapbooking, SMASHing, mini books and some mixed media canvases; for some reason, card making and stamping stump me in a major way! 
You can find me at my blog:"

And... for today's inspiration, Kate is sharing her "super fun" take on this months
"Countdown" Stash Challenge

"Hello 2012"
This is what Kate shared about her layout:
"Finally getting around to scrapping the COUNTDOWN to 2012! 
 Our annual tradition is to travel to my dad's house and have dinner, drinks, silly party favors and music! 
(5) Studio Calico wood veneer stars,
(4) SEI silver glitter dots,
(3) Misc journaling spots,
 (2) Heidi Swapp epoxy arrow stickers and
(1) Tim Holtz rubon

 To finish it off, I just added some misc doodling with a black writer."

We are looking forward to seeing more of  Kate's work and all the wonderful inspiration she will be sharing with Scrap Our Stash during the next 6 months!
