Drumroll please.......

It is my pleasure to introduce our new Inspirational Team members and their take on April's challenge......

Deb Hosking

Deb says:

" I live in country South Australia with my wonderful husband, Shayne who supports me and my hobby, or rather my passion...ok!!…my ADDICTION to scrapbooking. I was a teacher BC (before children) and now work as a TAFE lecturer. I have two sons Ryan 11 and Bowen 8 who feature prominently in my pages.

I love clean simple lines with the focus being on the photos and the story. I love that what I create will help my family remember both the special occasions and the everyday moments of their lives.

Scrapbooking has taught me so much and allowed me to make some fantastic friendships."

Visit Deb's blog for more inspiration -'s what you make it!

Kellie Harrison

Kellie says:

"I have been scrapping for about 5 years now, however I have been doing craft for as long as I remember. I have been married for almost 10 years to my best friend and we have 3 children whom I love to do scrapbook pages on.

We live in country NSW so access to scrapbooking supplies can be a little difficult- thus I tend to spend a lot of time on the internet searching for products and ideas.

Just recently, I became a Design Team member of ScrapAWhile, which I am enjoying so much."

Amazing inspiration...

The very talented Sue Maree Wilks has been at it again! Here's her take on April's challenge. It's wonderful to see a boy page and how cool are those chipboard shapes!

I have to congratulate Sue Maree on her stunning layout published in the final encore of Scrapbooking Memories Vol 11 No 2. It's her second time being published and I'm sure not her last!

If you'd like to see more of Sue Maree's work, go and visit her and the other chooks at Chook Scraps.

An early reveal!

We are heading off on a family holiday and I won't have access to my computer while I am away. I'm already having withdrawals - eeeek!!!

Because of this, I will share my interpretation of April's challenge a little bit early.
I have used Basic Grey's Mellow & Pheobe ranges for this layout. I loved the shapes of the Pheobe range, but it was just a bit too pink for my DS, so I added some beads to break it up.

I hope this inspires you to enter this month's challenge! Keep your entries coming in and I will be back next Sunday with more inspiration and the Design Team announcement!!!

Happy Easter Everyone!!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful time with your family and friends.

We've had a wonderful morning here hunting for eggs. Lots of photo opps for lots of material for some Easter pages!!!

I myself am feeling a bit sick from all the eggs....I have no self control!!! Maybe a hot cross bun will soak up some of that sugar.....
