Judy Willey
"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?"
"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!
