November Guest Designer
Vija Anton
"Hi! I'm Vija Anton and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have been scrapbooking on and off for about ten years but only started my blog,
and joining in with some online challenges, a few months ago. I was thrilled and honored to be asked to be a guest designer for SOS for November.

I love travelling with my family and I love my dog so they are my two main subjects I like to scrap. We live very close to the beach and I especially love doing beach layouts. 

I don’t have a particular style and I admire all different types of scrapbooking. Scrap Our Stash is a perfect site for me as I don’t keep up with manufacturers new releases and mainly just do a couple of bigger online purchases during the year. I never throw anything out so I always have ‘a stash’." 

Take a look at the amazing layout Vija created inspired by this month's book cover:
"Off We Go"
Vija shared this with us about her layout:
"When I saw this challenge I immediately thought of this fun photo from our trip to Universal Studios earlier this year that I had on my 'must scrap' list. I was inspired by the book cover to try something new for me...a space theme!!! My space scene was created with mists, paint, glitter and a stencil on navy cardstock and I think I have had that starry patterned paper in my stash from when I started scrapbooking 10 years ago!! I'm looking forward to see how other scrappers will be inspired by this book cover."

Inspired by Vija's amazing layout and/or the challenge?
We would love to see how this month's book cover inspires you.
