our guest designer for september 2012 ...

Torill Fossum Stamnes - Screppa

We are so honoured to have Torill Fossum Stamnes, also known as Screppa as our guest designer for September.  You will remember that in last Friday's Friday Faves feature, her friend Vibeke Harila recommended her art journalling blog. If you haven't peeked at it already, you should do so.

Here is Screppa's message for us:

Hello everyone!

My name is Torill Fossum Stamnes - Screppa. I live in a town called Steinkjer, in the middle of Norway. I am married to the world's most wonderful man, and we have two great boys, 12 and 9 years.
I work as a kindergarden teacher for toddlers on a daily basis.

A hobby has become a lifestyle!
I have scrap-glasses on, constantly in search! I think actually I've had them there my whole life, but in the last 7-8 years this has really escalated..
I can't get enough paper! I love flowers, buttons, ribbons and stuff! I love to try different styles in scrapping. Usually I start simply, but then it takes a bit of on the way somewhere:0) ... But my friends say I'm quite "shabby", and freestyle.

I love doing pages for my albums, but Art Journaling is the style closest to my heart! There are no rules and I can use it for exactly what I need there and then! 
I also make cards and mini albums - I'm quite versatile :0)

I have my own small business, "Screppa", where I organize courses and events for other papergals.
This is great fun, and it gives me a lot!
I am the designer for "ScrappeHuset" http://scrappehuset.blogspot.no/http://scrappehuset.blogspot.no/, and "Bird Is The Word." (http://birdisthewordchallenge.blogspot.no/)
Really looking forward to be the guest here at "Another Freeking Scrappy Challenge"!
I hope you like my work!

Love from Torill

This posting is a little late today - been burning the candle at every end lately.

 Kim Price is on a roll.  Not only has she been chosen for a few design teams lately, she was a winner in the Beyond challenger over at Bird is the Word - congratulations Kim.

Please let me know if you are recognized for your scrapbooking, art journalling, card, or any other artistic work.  We'd love to give you some appreciation here.  I do post what I see online as I browse (that's how I caught Kim's mention) - but I really do appreciate a heads up from YOU about YOUR or other's work who hang out on this blog.
