Introducing New Design Team Member, Manda Moore

happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope you have been enjoying a wonderful weekend!
Today is the last day of our DesignTeam Introductions.  
We are pleased to introduce to you:
Manda Moore
"I am a crafty girl and graphic designer who has a major love affair with pretty papers. I live in country Victoria, Australia. 

My mother and grandmother encouraged me to be creative from a very young age, whether it was colouring, painting or playing with clay and I have always loved art and design in some form or another. I started out in the world of paper craft by making cards and as the world of patterned paper and embellishments consumed me it was only a matter of time that I would discover scrapbooking and once I did there was no turning back. 

When I am not working or playing in my scraproom I love cooking, photography, travel and of course hanging out with my two kittens, Harry and Winston."

Check out Manda's amazing take on our 
Red, White and Blue Challenge:  
"Sky High"
Here is what Manda had to say about her layout:
"Red, white, blue and stars was perfect for my Empire State Building photo! Because the photo is B&W I used lots of white space so it didn't get lost in all the patterned paper. Stars were a bit of a challenge for me as it is not an embellishment I am drawn to and I didn't want them to be the main focus of the layout. After a dig into my stash I found some star brads and little stickers which I mixed in with my ink splatters"
