Featured Artist - 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.  

Today I made a video of this project because I had so many step by step pictures to show you!
