|What was your childhood ambition? Believe it or not, I really wanted to be a nurse! I used to put bandaids all over my dad, all the time!
What is your wildest dream? My wildest dream is to be a full time scrapbook designer. I would love to be published and for my work to be known as well as Mary Engelbreit.
What time is your alarm clock set to? 5:45 AM, but I don’t get up that early!
What is your idea of a perfect day? A perfect day is going to a soccer game to see my oldest son play when the sun is shining, and the air is brisk. Afterward, going home with my family and enjoying some sort of household project as a family. It could be painting a room, redecorating (which happens often!), crafts, etc. I, also, enjoy going to the local football stadium with the family and getting some exercise and watching the boys play together.
Where do you get design inspiration? Oh, lots of places! I love to watch HGTV and see lots of color combinations and some of the bold modern designs.
What is your favorite indulgence? Dreyer’s Slow Churn French Silk Ice Cream. It is coffee flavored ice cream with chocolate chips with only ½ the fat of regular ice cream! Yum!
What is your favorite TV Show? Lost.
What food do you dislike? Celery, peppers, tomatoes, onions, as you can tell, I am not much of a fresh veggie girl.
What characteristic do you despise? Pride. It is good to be proud of your accomplishments, but when you want everyone to know ALL THE TIME, it is very tiring!
What is your favorite item of clothing? Comfy jeans and a cute pink t-shirt
What was your most memorable birthday? My 6th birthday I had a Holly Hobby Cake, made by my grandmother, and I got a Holly Hobby music box from my first “boyfriend”, Jeremiah! Ha!
Are you a morning or night person? Night, definitely.
What is your favorite iTune? I love Dave Barnes and my favorite song of his is Until You
Would you bungee jump? No! I am sooooo afraid of heights!
What is your favorite ice cream flavor? See above!
What is the first thing you notice about a person? Hard one! I think it is probably their hair….I don’t know why, I guess because it is just right there……LOL!
||My name is Amy Fennell and my design work is known as AmyLeigh’s Designs. I am a Texas girl and cannot imagine living anywhere else in the world! I have lived in Texas all of my life and attended the University of Texas at Austin (Go Longhorns!) where I graduated with a degree in Psychology. I am employed outside the home and have worked with at-risk families and children my entire professional career. I currently work as a Mental Health Specialist for the Head Start Pre-School program in our area. It is hard, but rewarding, work. I am married to the love of my life and we have 3 awesome, amazing, and wonderful boys. Their ages are 10, 8, and 3. Motherhood is truly the best job in the world.
I have been digital scrapbooking for 3 years and designing for 2 years. My style is simple, bold, and colorful. I love very graphic designs with lots of shapes and contrasting colors. I really hope that you enjoy my designs. If would love to hear from you, so please feel free to contact me on the forums.
