My name is Rita Barakat . I live right outside of Dallas, Texas. I am happily married and am blessed to be a stay at home mom to five fabulous kids. Two are now adults and the younger ones are 11, 10, and 8. We are a busy bunch so there are always photo opportunities!
I started scrapbooking ten years ago when we adopted our first child; I was hooked! I have always made crafts and mixed media art (before I knew it had a name), so scrapbooking was a natural transition for me. I love being a part of this industry and being creative on a regular basis. I have had my work published in a variety of magazines and have been honored to work with some really great manufacturers.
In addition to scrapbooking and mixed media art I have a passion for youth. I direct a youth choir and drama team. My hubby and I are the youth pastors at our church. I also love to sing, I have been performing with song since I was in elementary school.
I have three projects with the gorgeous "Natural" collection from Authentique. A mixed canvas, a scrapbook page and a bookmark. I couldn't choose which sheets to use so I used all of them in a collage as a base for my mixed media canvas!
