Judy Willey
Hi, 
"My name is Judy and I am so pleased to be here at Scrap Our Stash as guest designer for the month of October. I have been scrapping for more than 10 years and over that time I have tried lots of different techniques. However, I hope I have stuck to the idea that the purpose of scrapbooking is to document life’s moments both for myself and future generations (hopefully). I live in tropical north Queensland with my husband. We are so grateful that we are able to see our children and grandchildren often and they feature in much of my work. I love many forms of creative work and have a particular passion for sewing as well as scrapbooking so I do often combine the two.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with for this months challenges."


Check out the incredible layout Judy created inspired by this month's book cover...
"Where is the Green Sheep?"
Judy:
"I loved “The Investigation “ challenge. I used photos of my grandson dressed up for a book week event at his school. He had chosen to disguise himself as a green sheep from the Australian children’s classic "Where is the Green Sheep? " by Mem Fox. This fits with the investigation them so well! I used clocks, a key and mustaches to embellish the page as well as the many, many question marks and of course some string. It was such a great challenge. I am looking forward to seeing your takes on this super fun challenge."

We are looking forward to seeing how this month's book cover inspires each of you!
Have a great weekend!

"Play" LO by DT Aurelie

Good Morning! 

For today's inspiration, we are sharing Designer Aurelie's beautiful layout:
Aurelie shared this about her layout:
"SO love how SOS is inspiring me to dig deep in my stash and use scrappy goodies I've been holding onto for years! Such is the case with Basic Grey's What's Up? collection. As soon as I saw air balloons in the first list of items to use on this layout, I started looking for it. I knew there was this BG collection that had some in it. And ta-da! There it was. I used tons of it for this layout - patterned papers (I fussy-cut that air ballon - it's actually just half of a balloon, but tucked behind my paper layers, it still does the trick!), alphas, and chipboard stickers. I also layered a piece of BG's Wisteria collection as well as one from BG's RSVP collection. They matched so perfectly! YAY! Finally, I added a few buttons (item from list 2) as embellishments on the air balloon, Stampin' Up cardstock for my journalling and some of their vellum behind my photo, a Freckled Fawn title wood veneer piece, a few splats of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze (my journalling is actually hiding a few splatting mishaps!), a run of the mill paper clip, and yes, of course, some hand-stitching using a Crafter's Workshop stitching template and some DMC floss. Oh! And my item for list 3 is the piece of patterned paper with chevrons on it. Photo by Jocelyne Roy, a scrappy friend who's been babysitting my sweet Éloïse for the past two years. Love these pics she takes of our girl while we're working. Merci, Jocelyne!"

Here's the challenge:
Just a couple of days left upload your layout!! 
Can't wait to see how you interpret the challenge! :) 

Happy Scrapping!

inspired by the 
Marie shared this about her layout:
"My scrappy friends would tell you I have a thing with the color purple... Until a few weeks ago, this color was amongst the worst in my scrapbooking color scheme. But lately, I'm kind of obsessed with it. I would use it on every single layout I produce... this one is no exception. Be prepared, purple is the new black! My new black! LOLL

From the list, I chose Authentique (the tiny grey paper behind my photo). Black, of course! And a lot of Crate Paper embellishments, aren't they the cutest."
