Mai Watanabe
Hi, girls!
My name is Mai Watanabe. also known as titiyan.
I live in Japan, with my husband and two cute daughters. (5 years old and 1 year old)
I started scrapbooking 2008, and now still love paper! I want to create everyday and find little happiness. Children grow up so quickly, I never want to forget, and always keep memories in layouts. I always think when creating a layout the "calculation of color". Plus or minus, or a combination of any color! It is the most fun! So I love color inspiration! Very excited about the great challenge! Thank you!
