Who We Are:
My name is Toni Thryselius, and my love of creative endeavors and all things fiber-related led me to become the owner of Your Scrapbook Stash in April of 2012. Besides my family, my passions include scrapbooking, knitting, quilting and baking, in no particular order. I’ve often dreamed of creating a “Fiber Fanatics Warehouse”—a huge emporium for paper, yarn, fabric, tools and anything else a fiber fanatic could crave. Watch out if I win the lottery!

April Guest Designer
Hello SOS fans!  I am so excited to be a guest designer here.  I get to play with you for the whole month ;)  I live in a small town in Northern Ontario Canada with my patient and dear husband, two busy daughters, two spoiled Siamese cats and one lucky turtle.  I've been scrapbooking for over 10 years now but only started blogging about it for the last two.  I love sharing my creations and seeing what everyone else makes.  It really does inspire me to create.  And, I love using up my stash!!!!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with this challenge.  Happy scrapping!  Lynn xo

And here is Lynn's fantastic layout:

  9. I'm sorry. I messed up and used the wrong Mr. Linky and entered my entry for Stash-a-Thon #12 in your April challenge. I can't figure out how to remove it. I tried that thing that said removal tool but it didn't work.
