Leica told me that this is her largest class kit ever!!!
Get to know Leica...
Leica Forrest first began her adventures in scrapbooking when she was leaving to teach primary children in Australia. She was hooked! Upon returning, she married Jim (fantastic man!) and together they have 3 children; 2 boys and a girl (Riley 9, Jager 7 and Ireland 5) Leica is very easy going and always up for an adventure. She will try anything once. You will find her scrapbooking on her lap at home, every road trip and on flights. She loves quirky shows like Duck Dynasty and Swamp People . She records Hoarders to play while she cleans the house as a motivation. Her favourite colour combo is turquoise blue and chocolate brown. She loves to sing loud in the shower (very off-key), and ironically one of her first jobs was singing karaoke.Totally loves cheesecake and lettuce wraps. She doodles all the time, has a gazillion projects on the go. She definitely is the girl that will make you laugh. She loves creating all types of media and displays them all over her house. Her passion for teaching led her to start teaching scrapbook/mixed media classes internationally and it was a perfect combination of being able to be a stay at home mom. Published over 800 times in recognizable magazine and books, she also has been involved with many different manufacturers as a designer/educator and even a contributing editor. Currently with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, Core’dinations, Glitz Design, Art Anthology, Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine. and now Sizzix! She’s been teaching 9 years in this industry and still feels a rush every time she boards the plane to teach somewhere new. It’s all about creating the memories!
