Meet Brittney our Guest Design Team Member for May

My name is Brittney, I'm 24 from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. When I was asked to be the guest designer for May, I was beyond thrilled. I mean, what a treat! I started scrapbooking about 4 years ago. My inspiration is definitely my boyfriend Josh and my dog Brodie. They're good sports, too - always willing to pose for a photo (or seven!). Currently, my favorite thing to do on a layout is some hand-stitching. I love the texture that it adds, and not to mention that I just love the way it looks!

I love to travel (although I do get homesick after about two weeks), so I have more than enough vacation photos to scrap. Because of this, I tend to make a mini album or two for each vacation, and then I display them proudly for everyone to flip through when they come over. I'm leaving for another vacation in June, and I can't wait to share with everyone what I come up with!

Here's a layout that I made about a week ago showcasing my dad's trip to Rome! I used some yummy Studio Calico and October Afternoon papers, as well as some American Craft's Thickers.
