Get to know....Irene Tan

Hello everyone! It's time for me to be in the spotlight today! I'm Irene Tan or better known as "Scrapperlicious" in the online world.


Let's talk a little about me first. I'm from the beautiful island, Penang, which is situated in West Malaysia. It is an island that embraces modernity while retaining its traditions and old world charm.
Who am I before I indulge into this industry and when did I start scrapping? I used to be an accountant. Yes, I'm a Chartered Accountant working with a big international auditing firm. I won't go into details as to why I've totally changed my career directions. You all can keep guessing on this....

I officially started scrapbooking and my blog in 2007 and everything after that results in who I am today. My family is a huge part of my scrapping journey. They are very supportive of my passion. My husband is my buddy in all my teaching trips and my kids are my favourite subjects.

It's fun and inspiring to scrap the everyday lives of my three kids.
Ryan and Chloe is main reason I started scrapbooking.

And "Hiro" is our charming Siberian Husky.

Want to see my scrap space?
I do not own a scrap room. My scrap space is basically half of our office room which I share with the rest of the family.

Do I teach? Yes! Upon invitation, I do travel to teach a few times a year. In fact, I'll be teaching in Surabaya, Indonesia and Osaka and Tokyo, Japan this October and November 2011. And for you all in the Europe, keep an eye for my updates on my blog..wink..wink.. Most of my workshops will have some Bo Bunny gorgeousness in it. Check this link to find out on my teaching criteria. 

Now, onto my projects for Bo Bunny.
