Magnificent Mermaid Thursday!

Welcome to Magnificent Mermaid Thursday, I'd like to introduce you to Andrea today!

Andrea, where do you live?  Are you married, do you have kids?
"I'm divorced and living with my boyfriend of 13 years. We have two cats, Cheddar and Lewis and live in South Florida, USA."

Do you have a job outside of stamping?
"Yes, I'm a Mechanical Engineer by trade, stamper/scrapbooker by choice."
How did you get into stamping?
"I attended a Stampin' Up! at home demonstration and loved it."

What is your favorite embellishment and why?
"Glitter - you can never have too much, it always makes people smile and it comes in a zillion colors!"

Do you have a favorite stamp set from Michelle Perkett Studio?
"I really like Bella the Baker and Put on Your Party Dress. So many opportunities for different looks!"

How would you describe your stamping style?
"Eclectic - one day my designs are monochromatic, clean and simple and the next it's glitter galore with bunches of layers!"

What’s your favorite part of stamping?
"I love to heat emboss. I need to practice that more with the digi stamps, but for rubber stamping, it's one of my favorite things to do. I love coloring with Copics and with digi stamps."

What is your favorite non-card type project?
"I thoroughly enjoy scrapbooking life's travels and daily activities."

Have you ever been published?
"Yes, in print magazines and online ezines."

What is your favorite coloring medium and tell us why?
"Copic markers are my most recent passion. They are so beautiful and the colors are to die for. I'm obsessed with filling in my Copic color chart!"
Tell us a little about your blog.
It's a mix of digistamping, rubber stamping, cards, scrapbook pages, inchies, twinchies, ATC's and just plain chit chat sometimes! That's why it's titled Andrea's Scraps!
I hope you've enjoyed getting to know Andrea as much as I have.  Be sure to check out our "Hip Not To Be Square" challenge, there's still a few days left to make a card and enter the challenge!
