It's Spotlight Time- Rita Barakat

This was an easy choice! I decided that Rita Barakat should be our very first spotlight gal.

I don't know if you remember, but Rita won the Caribbean Blues contest a while ago. She then turned the stuff she was given, into this fun and beautiful mini album!

Take a moment to look at this beautiful work. I really enjoyed how she used the letter Chipboards.

A little about Rita


I have been married to my wonderful hubby for 18 years. I am a SAHM of five beautiful children. Scrapbooking is my passion. I am always thinking about ideas for layouts and stories to journal. I have three cameras stashed in several places so I am never without one! When you have 5 kids you learn to be prepared!
And here are three more beautiful layouts made by Rita :)
I love this one. What great action photos!
I love that she added touches of green to this.

Thanks Rita for all your hard work!
