Our first challenge winner guest designer - Margaret Walz!!

So excited this month to feature Margaret Walz and her work.  Margaret has been playing along with our challenges for sometime, and we love her interpretations of our challenges. Her work has been selected as a fave here on the blog.  Margaret is also the winner of our first draw for the opportunity to be guest designer for a month of challenges.  Don't forget to play along with both of our challenges each month in order to be eligible twice for a spot as guest DT.

So pleased to introduce Margaret to those of you who don't know her!! Welcome Mar!!!

Hello my name is Margaret, but everyone calls me Mar. I wasn't going to Scrapbook, but fell victim to the addiction when my daughter opened Scrapbook Fantasies in 2003. I am a widow with two children and five grandchildren, all of whom feature in my creations.

our featured guest designer for november 2012

I am so very happy to announce that Vibeke is our featured guest designer on our blog this month.  I encourage you to visit her blog for some wonderful inspiration!!! Her work is absolutely awe inspiring!

I am so happy to be a guestdesigner here:):)

Who I am? I am a 38 years girl from Norway.

I started scrapping in 2007 - and I love this hobby:)
My style is very different. I love painting on my layouts - and I love vintage and shabby style.
I do some cards and art journals - but mostly layouts:)

I have been on different design teams, but today I am a proud design team member over at Lilo
