We were so delighted when our friend and regular participant in our challenges, Lizzy Hill was the winner of our random draw amongst November's challenges participants to be one of our January 2013 guest designers. Lizzy participants in many challenge blogs, so we know many of you know her and her lovely work already. She is a friendly soul, and a great encourager to others who play along with various scrapbooking challenges. Welcome Lizzy!!!!
My name is Lizzy Hill & I began scrapping in 2009 after coming home from a trip overseas. Mum encouraged me to ‘give it a go’ as a way of getting my photos sorted. It opened up a whole new world which I just adore. Blogging seemed to be a natural extension of scrapping – thus I’ve managed to combine a whole pile of ‘loves’ - photography, writing & scrapping!
My style is madly eclectic. I’ll give anything a go…my fave embellie atm has to be Washi tape – oh! And buttons/badges are up there, too. I scrap cards & OTP’s [off the page projects] as well as layouts. I don’t consider myself artistic – but I do really enjoy colour combinations. That may come from my dim, dark past as a hairdresser! I was also an English teacher…but my boys are grown up, I have my first grand-child, & I’m pretty much enjoying the good life these days. Not complaining at all…
This is my 2nd term on the Scrap Friends Design Team, which is my first serious ‘gig’ & that’s been a learning curve that I’ve totally enjoyed. I’ve also been published a fair bit in Scrapbooking Memories – a fab Australian scrapping mag.
Basically, I LOVE the ‘love’ of belonging to the Scrappy Community…blog hops & challenges are such fun! So on that note, I hope you’ll join in with AFSC…it was one of the first challenges I ‘had a go’ at, & I still enjoy them immensely! Happy scrapping…..
Stop by the blog here soon to see who our featured guest designer will be along with Lizzy for January. Bet you can't guess who????
