Artist of the Month Challenge for October

I am really excited to announce the Artist of the Month for October. If you haven't heard each month we choose an artist to highlight, and your challenge is to go through their gallery and choose one of their beautiful LO's to lift! We are so blessed to have soooo many talented artist here sharing their projects with us.
Are you ready?

So without further ado....

*drum roll please*

Tami aka Momawhite99!!!!!

Tami is truly a wonderful artist and such a uplifting and nice person. She has been an inspiration to many of us scrappers and it is a privilege to have her work in the gallery and to hear her thought and comments on the message board. We wanted to get to know her better so Heather asked her a ton of questions. Here is what she said:

1. Where do you live? I live in the beautiful state of Tennessee aka the Volunteer State.

2. Do you have any kids? I am a Mom to 2 boys-well 3 if you count my husband who has major confusion sometimes about how old he is-LOL! My oldest is Bo he is 13 (wish we could just stop right here at this age) and then theres my youngest Tucker he is 9-he is the sweet/demon child-LOL! No girls here in the White house-maybe someday they will give me a granddaughter.

3 Do you have any pets? I personally do no have any pets but there is a bloodhound named Elsie that lives at our house-hehehe

4.What was the last book you read? The last book I read was probably Dick and Jane-BWAA HAA HAA. I really dont read anymore no time besides if I did then that would take away from my scrappin time.

5.Do you like to cook? I love to cook, love to watch the Food Network and love trying new recipes. But the catch is with me it has to be easy stuff-I hate taking FOREVER to make something and I dont care for the mess either-dumb I know! My fave thing to cook is anything for a crowd-we love having people over and feeding them for some reason that is very rewarding to my hubs and I.

6.What's your favorite food? My fave food is Mexican-my dad used to tease me and my mom that he wasnt my father becuz I loved to eat Mexican food so much-LOL!

7.Do you have brothers and sisters? I have one younger brother.

8. Which sport do you like? Okay so this is where I am supposed to say the nice mommy thing- "I love any sport that my child participates in" WHATEVER that just stresses me out-I truly enjoy watching College Football and my fave team is the Tn Volunteers-GO VOLS!!

9.Have you ever met a famous person? Oh Gosh I have met several famous people in my life. But here's a funny one-I met the man who is the look alike for Sam Elliott(he's a major hunk in my book) Well my girlfriend and I were at a cookout and he was there-so of course we had to go and fix our hair and makeup so we could go ask him for a picture. (This was several yrs ago BTW) So we did and he kindly took a picture with us and gave us each a kiss on the cheek. We were just giddy for a couple hours until someone fessed up and told us -he was just the look alike-UGH!

10.How do you spend your free time? Well my free time is spent scrappin-I waited til my boys were older before I got started scrappin so I have TONS of stuff to scrap.

11.What super-power would you most like to have, and why? The super power that I would like to have is to fly-there are so many places here in the US I would like to visit-but I hate driving. So flying would come in REAL handy for me!

I am a huge fan of Tami's work. It is just so beautiful and fun. She uses a ton of different techniques and products. e just know that you will all be very inspired by her work!
