new members for our freaking awesome design team!!!

I am just so excited to announce some new members for our freaking design team, and so happy that several of our longer term DT members are also staying on. Here is some info about our new ladies!!
Hello everyone, for me it is a pleasure to be here and I hope to do a good job. My name is Elisabetta Colavero (Eli) and I live in the North of Italy.

I have a wonderful love story and a daughter, Noemi, 9 years old, who is the favorite subject of my projects. I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago, and I prefer layouts and sometimes minialbums. The cards, instead, simply hates me! 
I'm graduated in Agriculture, and I work for the Province of Cremona, Agricultural department. But I'm so lucky: I can work at home 3 days a week, I can manage freely my working hours, so I have always time to devote to my hobbies: reading, sporting, gardening, and of course, scrapbooking. For me it's like a drug... It allows me to express my artistic side and at the same time create something that preserves forever my fondest memories.
I also love summertime, nature, animals (I have two old cats), pizza and ice cream. I like cooking but otherwise I am a bad housewife. 

My name is Renee Iveson and I am lucky enough to live in beautiful Queensland Australia. By day I am wife to Tim and Mum to our 3 kidlets Viola, Charlotte (aka Shirley) and Walter. I also am a day care mummy by trade. But come night I am a madly obsessed scrapbook queen! I LOVE scrapbooking and have made lifelong friendships through this awesome art form  :)

 I would describe my scrap style as evolving  LOL! I love using inks, mists, paint, textures and layers. My favourite embellishment would have to be chipboard as they as so very versatile and can be altered to suit any layout.  I am very excited to be chosen  for the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.... DT.

Hi, I"m Libeeti from Israel. I'm a mom to two adorable and super energetic boys, 11Y & 8Y, who are the main subject of my layouts.
I'm a working woman by days and an addicted scrapper by nights and weekends. Scrapbooking became my way to ease the stress of the everyday life.
I can't define my style, since it evolves all the time.
I used to be on several DT's and currently I'm on 2 DT - About A Boy and Counterfeit Kit Challenge and I'm freaking happy to join AFSC team!
You're most welcome to visit my blog.

I started with scrapbooking over 10 years ago I got totally hooked on paper and techniques. Last year I lost my way to creativity. After taking a gap year on scrapping I've found my mojo again. I look forward to the challenges and hope to inspire you with different layouts. 
Enjoy the fun of this great DT and I can't wait to see all your takes on the challenges!

Hello ~ My name is Lucy Ohanyan, I’ve been married to an amazing man for the past 15 years, and we have three incredible children together, Christina, Juliana, and Christopher, you’ll be seeing them on many of my layouts. I’ve lived most of my life in sunny California, but have been fortunate enough to have traveled quite extensively throughout the world. I’ve always been very crafty, but only recently ventured into the scrapbook world and I’ve been hooked ever since. My style is very vintage, with a mixture of shabby chic and a bit of romance. I’m very fortunate to have a vast amount of old family pictures and so I find myself doing heritage layouts often. I’m extremely excited to be a part of Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Design Team and look forward to all that it brings. You can check out my work over at my blog at:  www.glitzandtatter.blogspot.com 

Anne has been scrapbooking for eight years and is currently on the design team for Scrapmatts, an Australian based chipboard manufacturer and also teaches for them. Anne loves trying lots of different techniques but her favourite is to sew on her pages. Anne’s scrapbooking is often inspired by different scrapbooking challenges. By doing different challenges, Anne has found it often pushes her to try new techniques and helps in creating new styles.

 Hi, my name is Wilma.

I live in a beautiful mountainvillage called Beatenberg-Switzerland.
Mother of 8 children and 4 grandchildren.
I work in a hotel, which can be very stressy in the saisons.
The things I like to do is walk in the mountains with my 2 dogs, music (can't live without it) , reading blogs and scrapbooksites.
Not so long ago I discovered scrapbooking, but I am totally addicted already.
Love to bring colour in my pages, and some unexpected details.
Because of scrapping I see more colors and shapes in the everyday things.

Last week I decided to have fun making pages and not be afraid about what people think of it.
Because thats what scrapping is all about: have fun, be you!
Who cares or it is grunge, shabby, or whatever style you make.
As long as you feel happy with the result.

I feel very honoured to be in the design team here and I am looking forward to see all the beautiful pages you create!  http://swissdutchy8.blogspot.ch/

Hi, my name is Anna, but in virtual world I use my nick - wiosanka :-) I live in Poland, at the Baltic Sea. I'm a wife of georgeous man and mother of two crazy boys - PaweĊ‚ (7) and Tomek (5). We spend much time together and we're rather sporty family. We ski in winter, swim and go on bike trips in the summer.

I scrap for over two years. At the begining I used to make lots of cards, but now I just love to make layouts and occasional albums. I love to work with pictures. The pictures of my family of course :-) Scrapbooking is my passion. I just can't live without papers, washi tapes, colourfull buttons and paint splashes. There is a black ink and the twine in almost each of my work :-)

Currently I'm a member of The Design Team of polish challenge blog Craft - Szafa, and now I'm deeply honoured to become a member of Another Freaky Scrappy Challenge Design Team :-) I hope you'll like my projects, and that my pages will give you many inspirations :-)
