our guest designer for june 2012 ...

We are blessed here to have had so many awesome designers and guest designers, and I thank them all.  Here is our latest guest designer, who will be with us for the month of June.  She is a regular contributor to our challenges:



my name is Maria, but I'm known as Karmeleiro. You probably think, that my nick is strange. Yes, indeed! It comes from my cats' names: Karmel and Eiro. I live in Poland at the Baltic Sea. I'm a mother of two kids: Bruno (5) and Zofia (1.5). I'm a teacher but now I'm taking care of the younger daughter so I have more time to scrap and craft. I fell in love with that hobby 2 years ago and I feel more and more involved in. Some time ago I became LO and mini album addicted! I love that innocent time while playing with paper and stuff. You may find hand made flowers and some fabrics in my works. I can't live without distress inks, love pastel colors but sometimes I turn to darker ones.

Currently I'm a member of The ScrapCake and Rapakivi DTs. They produce fabulous papers! I also run my mini challenge blog and with three other fantastic girls a national website “Scrapujace Polki” that gathers most of Polish Scrappers. We let them play and take part in different kinds of scrap&paper crafting challenges there.

I feel extremely excited and honoured to be Guest Designer here at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge! I even still can't believe it! I hope that my works inspire you in some ways and you have much fun while making your own projects!
