Hi my name is Alicia Redshaw and I live in Gladstone, Queensland (Australia). I am married to the most amazing man (Quentin), and we recently celebrated 21 years of love, happiness and being together. We share three beautiful and talented children (Milton 16, Naomi-Jon 13 and Noah 7), who are our reason for living the life we live. 

I own Scrapbook Fantasies and love that my life is full of creativity and I get the opportunity to meet new people every day. I have been scrapbooking for over 11 years, and teaching Scrapbooking and Cardmaking for nearly as long.  I now also teach Copic colouring and Mixed Media Art Classes too.  I create a range of projects and styles from simple cards to grungy scrapbook layouts to mixed media art canvas’ and almost everything in-between.  

I am thankful everyday for the blessings of my family and my creativity.

Hi, I'm Catie.  I'm a mum of 4 little cherubs who keep me very busy. I love scrapping, making cards and recently starting delving into the world of mixed media canvasses and other OTP projects.  I have been scrapping for a few years now and love constantly learning and experimenting with new techniques. Some of my favourites include stamping, water colour, mixed media and anything gelato! 

I have a real passion for capturing memories and preserving the stories to accompany the images from life for my children. It's always so enjoyable looking back at photos with them. In addition to this, creativity is an essential outlet for me in this busy, busy lifestyle.  It allows my imagination to be active and I find that so comforting.

Hello my name is Donna O'leary (aka midnightscrapper).  

Some of you ladies may remember my face from when Another freaking Scrappy Challenge blog first started, I'm glad to be back and look forward to seeing what you all create in 2014 :-)

I have been scrapbooking for a few years now and I love it more and more everyday.

I love to play and explore with new products, seeing what they can do and then applying what I have discovered to my projects.   My focus in my pages are normally my children (7) and I love to create altered projects. Thank you Anne for welcoming me back to the team, if you ladies want to see more of what I do you can find my blog here


and I have a facepage to if you would like to pop on over and say hello https://www.facebook.com/midnightscrapperdo?ref=hl .

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, 10 years old, who is the favorite subject of my projects. I started scrapbooking about 7 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 summer, nature, animals (I have two old cats), pizza and ice cream. I like cooking but otherwise I am a bad housewife. 

I'm Libeeti, from Israel. I'm a mom of two supper energetic boys, who are the main subject and inspiration of my layouts. 

I'm a working woman by days and an addicted scrapper by nights and weekends.
I can't definde my style as it evolves and changes, but usually I use many layers and distressing on my layouts. Lately I started using mixed media and I enjoy it very much.

You can see my work on my blog, creation with love. 

I'm so happy that Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge is back! Thank you, Anne, for taking me to the team once again :).

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.  

My blog name is “Messymarmar” for good reason as I love to experiment and mess-up my pages with ink, mist, paint and whatever else I can get my hands on.

Hello my name is Mary Bennetts .I live in a town called Orange, about four hours from Sydney. I am married with three grown up Children, two boys and a girl and I have a Grand daughter and Grandson. I also have a little dog called Scruffy who has been part of our family for over 15 years. 

Scrapbooking is my passion and I do something scrap related almost everyday.  I don't believe I have a particular style as I like to try different styles depending on the story I am telling and the photo I am scrapping. I do enjoy getting messy though and playing with gesso, paint and mists, I also love vintage laces and embellishments.

I am thrilled to be part of the DT and l am looking forward to working with the other DT members and feeling excited for lots of amazing entries at  Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.


My name is Mieke Nagtegaal and I live in the middle of the Netherlands, a small village called Ermelo. Married to Ger and we have two beautiful teenagers, a boy of 17 and a girl of 14. Working from home in my beauty salon where I give massages, Reiki treatments and do lashes and brows.

I started scrapping 11 years ago, one workshop and I was hooked. After 9 years I took a break from scrapping but now I'm back..... completely hooked again!

Love working with paints, inks, gesso and sprays. Also I found a new love in metal.

I hope to inspire you to be creative, it's so much fun! Love to see you on Facebook and on my blog http://mickeyspicsandscraps.blogspot.nl/

Why hello there from Upstate New York where it’s cold quite often, but also very sunny! I just recently turned 40 which seems to me to be the best age of all. I am married to THE MAN who often plays a hand in my craft stunts. Or at least provides tools and a warm garage for spray painting. Yes he wears glitter quite often and by accident. 

We are raising our two kids to the best our abilities to be smart, technologically savvy, and ready for whatever comes next. The oldest is 13, which corresponds to the length of time I have been scrapbooking. At times I have found her arranging items on a scrapbook page I have laid out, so she has the paper bug too! The youngest is 11 and is not into paper at all. He’d rather ask difficult questions having to do with space and physics which boggle my brain. 

I have been blogging for three years which is taking the whole craft to another level. Connecting with bloggers all over the blog-o-sphere is just amazing. Both activities are polar opposites of my day job, which is working as a project manager for an engineering firm.

My first ever Design Team was Another Freaking Scrappy, so I am delighted Anne is getting her started back up!
