This week's Pimp-Out/Showcase belongs to Wandy from Green Apple Scrapper:
 
 
Hi There, My name is Wanda Pizarro a.k.a. Wandy the “Green Apple Scrapper!”
I wasn’t always known as the “Green Apple Scrapper”, It all started in 2008 when I had my Daughter, Mekayli, now 4yrs old.
My Sis in law invited me to her friend’s house to “scrap” and I tagged along.
So as she’s getting set up her friend tells me and shows me album after album full of scrapbooked pics of her and her family and I just fell in love! I said “I’m going to make one for my Daughter”!! And I so I did! My first scrapbook was of my Baby Shower and then moved on to my daughter and all her milestones! Not to mention all the ones to come!
I still have a lot of work to do as I take ba-gillion pictures <(just made that up…lol)
I have this passion for paper crafts and I enjoy putting the pieces together to create my own master piece. For someday my kids to enjoy… And probably say “Geez, Mom is a paper hoarder..lol!”
I currently design for Cheryl @ Creative Kuts Chicas! And I must say, At first it’s a little intimidating to create along side women whom have been crafting for years, compared to my few years. Totally felt like a rookie. But once I got to know them, they really helped me and shared tips and ideas…and most of all they are sweethearts and a pleasure to work with! Throughout my time in this DT they have really become Sisters!!
LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
I was recently certified by Michael’s (My Job) To teach scrapbooking classes!! Which I am UBBER EXCITED ABOUT!!! My first crop night is this Saturday! AHHH I can hardly wait! I’m looking forward to share my art, passion, and most of all what I love to do!
 
 
Here are a few of my projects!






 
Hope you like them as much I liked putting them together!
