Facebook Gal Rita Barakat

My name is Rita Barakat. I have been married to my wonderful hubby for 19 years. Before I had children I painted life size murals for a living. I am blessed to be a SAHM (stay at home mom) to five beautiful children ages 18 down to 4! My talents are all in the fine arts. I direct a youth choir and drama team. I sing and have always been a crafter and an artist. When I ran across scrapbooking I was immediately hooked! Scrapbooking is my passion!

"How did it feel to get the call?"
I just got a new iphone the day before and I am not a technical kind of person, so first I missed the call. The I couldn't figure out how to retrieve my voicemail! I had to wait for my teenage son to come home to do it for me! To my surprize it was Heidi talking a mile a minute, saying you want to call me back! I called her right back and was SO excited I couldn't stand it!!! I called my hubby and all my friends as soon as I got off the phone!
