Designer Week- Fun Facts with Audrey and Shellye!

This week is "Designer Week" here on the Authentique Paper blog! We want to showcase all of our amazing designers and we thought our fans may want to get to know the people behind the amazing projects featured on our blog.

Audrey Pettit

Audrey is another one of our long term dt members. We were flipping through a crafty magazine and saw one of her projects and KNEW that we wanted/needed/had to have her on our team! Not only is she super talented, but she is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. 

10 random fun facts:

1. I just gave up all soda this past month, and it's kinda killing me.

3. I can't seem to go for a walk outside without picking up some little piece of nature and bringing it back home with me.
4. Crafting and making things is a hobby that I've had my entire life, for as far back as I can remember.

6. I just finished reading the entire Harry Potter series for the third time.
7. My scrap room is the craziest disaster mess that you've ever seen.
8. I decorate my house for every season and holiday.
