"I'm a guy from Spain, I'm 24 years old and I have been doing scrapbooking for over two years. I discovered scrapbooking by chance. I wanted to make a special gift, a diary for a trip (I love travel) and that's how I discovered the wonderful world of scrapbooking. My style is vintage, totally a classic vintage Victorian European style. I also enjoy working with bright colors, as in the vintage bright colors are perfect. There is no other brand like Graphic 45 that offers all of that." -L. Alberto Juarez Diaz
