I'm very honored to be judging for this challenge. It was very fun to do. My name is Anita Volmer and I live in the east of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...st1:City w:st=</st1:City><st1:place w:st="on">Holland</st1:place> together with my husband Vincent and our son Bas. I work as a Sales Officer at an big electrotechnical company.
Things that put a smile on my face: Being silly. Random pictures. Digital anything. Napping on a rainy day. Spending my time with my family and friends whom I don't see often enough. I love making pictures and I am interested in graphic design.
My life changed completely when we started the Dutch website Digiscrap.nl in 2007. It is a Dutch forum, but the shop is also in English.

I am married to Michael, a paramedic and we have one adult son who is out of the nest. I have been designing for over 3 years, and love it and Scrapping. I started digiscrapping when we moved to Sydney Australia and didnít have the room to paper scrap anymore. We live a quiet life as we have no family close-by but my friends at the Studio are a real life line and I consider them part of my family too. Scrapping and Design have
become such a huge part of my life that I canít really imagine them never being part of my daily routine.
I also enjoy photography, reading, music and cycling (occassionally LOL)</o:p>

I started scrapbooking, journaling, with my first born. I love having a place to go to get help with chronicling my journaling in both photo's and words. I create for me. Sometimes that translates into a scrapbooking kit that others can create with as well.
I run theStudio not just to sell scrapbooking supplies but also to give everyone a place to share their memories, their families. To help people chronicle their own journeys and stories. It is home-away-from-home.

Congratulations Amber! Job well done, both of you!! I love that the judges comments were included, everyone has such a different point of view! And to only be a one point difference, that must have been one heck of a judging!!

I've already had a play with both of these kits and I can honestly tell you I have NO IDEA how they even judged! Each kit brings something unique, and they both mesh together beautifully!! Don't take my word for it... check out the Speed Scrap Challenge and grab yourselves an awesome sampler from these two kits! ;)
