Happy Friday! Do you have big plans for Halloween? It's a big holiday at Taylored Expressions, you know? The sweets, the decorations, the cats in costumes... *grin* Today Taylor has another sketch challenge for you over on her blog and we have a sample of it right here brought to you by Our Friday Friend. Please welcome Regina Mangum - you may know her as *thestampinbean*. Her Merry Little House card caught our attention last week, so we thought it would be nice to get to know her a bit better. Regina is making all pink cards this week in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today's card features Wings of Joy, For the Love of Cupcakes and A Year of Sweet Sentiments. Do you see all three sets in there? You can hop over to Regina's blog The Stampin' Bean for more details.

--What city/state do you live in?
I just moved to New York, NY in August. I'm originally from Los Angeles.

--How did you become addicted to papercrafts? How long have you been stamping?
I've enjoyed craftmaking and papercrafts ever since I was a little girl, but it was only since the beginning of 2009 that I started stamping. My wonderful mom-in-law, an avid and talented stamper, got me hooked (much to the chagrin of her son!)

--How would you describe your style? What are you favorite projects to create?
I've been told that my style is a bit of everything. It depends on my mood, which means anything from clean and simple to bright and fun. I do admire all styles very much, so I think that's what makes mine a bit of a mish-mash. Though I also scrapbook, I love card-making most of all. I think it's so gratifying to make a hand-made card to send to someone I love. I'll make a card for no special reason and I know that the person that receives it gets a little bit of sunshine in their day. I also really enjoy making cards/scrapbook pages where I can use photographs or images that I've created myself.

--Do you have a favorite TE image?
That's a question with a near-impossible answer! What I love about Taylor's sets is that when you see one of her images, you know it's a TE stamp. Every time I get a new set, it becomes a favorite.

--What is your favorite sweet treat?
I am definitely an ice cream fan. I could eat it any time, any place. My poor husband is allergic to milk, but my son and I aren't, and we don't have any guilt about eating it in front of him!


How about you? Would you like to be considered for a spot as Our Friday Friend? Simply remember to use Keyword tayloredexpressions (no space) when uploading your TE creations to the gallery at SCS. We love to see what you make!

Have a sweet weekend!

I love this card. Makes me think of Valentines or maybe it's spring...instead of approaching winter.
