Michelle Perkett Studio Featured Mermaid Thursday

Hello and welcome to Michelle Perkett Studio featured Mermaid Thursday!

I’d like to introduce you to Mari today!   Mari is one of our newest design team members and lives with her family in Texas. Mari has been paper crafting for about ten years and has a spare room that she uses for her studio.

Mari has lived all over the world; Germany, Japan, Korea and Portugal. She’s also lived all over the United States. Mari has three adult children; her oldest child is adopted from Korea and currently lives in California with her husband and soon to be one year old son. Mari’s other daughter lives in Oklahoma with her five year old son; and Mari’s son is a student at Texas A&M who is currently studying in Jordan. His wife is very anxious for him to come home soon. Mari’s husband just left for Iraq, while he is currently a civilian, he and Mari are both Air Force veterans. Mari and her husband met while they were stationed in Germany.

And now, one of Mari’s wonderful cards!
Mari used Michelle's new Hugs Before School image for her card.  I love her neutral color palette and the books above her image are very creative!  I wonder if she made those herself?   To find out you can visit her at her Trails Of Paper blog, be sure to leave her a comment so she knows your were there! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing Mari's card today and getting to know her a little better!

Don't forget about the "Anything Goes With A Michelle Perkett Studio Image" challenge going on, you have until Monday to enter your cards.  We'll be drawing a winner Monday after 5:00 PM MST!
