                          Kitty - DT Creative

Kitty lives with her partner and our son in a historic town in The Netherlands.  She has been crafting as long as she can remember.
In 2001 she started scrapbooking, but was diagnosed with postpartum illness. She gradually stopped making layouts and just made some small projects for her garden.
In 2010 she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and was advised to do something that gives her positive energy and what makes her happy. Kitty took up paper crafting and card making again using rubber stamps but discovered digital images in 2014. She loves to color with a variety of markers, yet has never taken a lesson. 
 "Thankful and proud for being part of the Digi Doodle Studios DT. Hope to create a lot of fun stuff with the images and I hope to inspire you with my work."
