Meet our October 
Guest Designer
After reading a little bit about Steffanie, check out the fantastic layout she created inspired by our October Tic Tac Toe Challenge:

Hi! My name is Steffanie Seiler. I started scrapbooking nearly 15 years ago and quickly became obsessed! I love this hobby and spend time each day either actively scrapbooking or thinking about scrapbooking. I'm in LOVE with patterned paper---if only I could use it as fast as I seem to collect it! I think of myself as a clean and simple scrapper that likes to use a little texture and dimension---as long as I can still put it in a page protector.  I'm starting to get more comfortable with splattering and mists but it has to be controlled or I get a little crazy!

I have been married to my husband for 17 years. We have 2 incredible boys who supply the bulk of my scrapbook inspiration.  I like picnics, outdoor concerts, dark chocolate, wine and a steaming cup of coffee in the mornings. I enjoy running and hiking and have a desire to be a better photographer. My primary job is SAHM but I also have a very part-time dream job as a postpartum nurse. I enjoy volunteering at school and just being available for my family when they need me.

Here’s her fabulous layout:

and this is what Steffanie said about her layout:
I love Tic-Tac-Toe challenges!  I actually scored 3 in a row TWICE---diagonal with washi tape, decorative pins and twine and then horizontal across the middle with a journal card, decorative pins (again) and arrows.  One of my arrows is even a painted wood veneer so out of nine choices, I ended up using six!  Great use of my stash!!  The best part was that I didn't even feel like I was forcing myself to use these items...it just came together so naturally.  Love it when that happens!

Come back tomorrow when we will reveal more wonderful inspiration!

Happy Scrappin’!
