Now it is time for you to meet our 
December Guest Designer
Heather Robertson
"I'm thrilled to be asked to be guest designer here at Scrap Our Stash 
I was born and raised in Northern Ireland but now live in Alaska with Dan (husband of 17 years), son Nathan (16), daughter Lauren (14), 3 cats - Athena, Meow and Deshka and a Chesapeake Bay retriever Willou.  I have been scrapping since 2004.  I mainly scrap paper pages and cards but also dabble in digital scrapping and canvases.  I would say my primary style is bold and graphic although I also mix up my styles frequently. I  love to think outside the box, to add unique elements to my page and a little tongue-in-cheek humour. I love to play with embellishments and tweak sketches to make them my own.  Aside from scrapping I also love to mountain bike, play racquetball, travel and do home improvement projects.”

Check out Heather's awesome layout inspired by the photo:
This is what Heather said about her layout,
I was inspired by the colors, the circles of the eight mugs, the theme of hot chocolate and the glitter of the ornaments and fake snow”

Thank you Heather for being our wonderful December Guest Designer. 
We are so excited to have you design with us this month!

 Make sure you all return tomorrow to see more inspiration!

    1. Thank you Shelby for joining us this month and glad you liked the inspiration!

  4. Hi! I loved your inspirational photo, printed an image and placed it along with some additional inspirational images for my paper projects. I set off to use it this morning without realizing that it is to be used to create a layout. I used it to make a card. I'm not submitting it for the challenge but thought that you might still like to see it. Thanks for the inadvertent card making inspiration, (lol)!!

  5. This was an awesome challenge. To me, the photo was super inspirational. The photo reminded me of being with friends and family during holiday festivities. I also loved the color palette. Just finished linking up. Thank you for a fabulous challenge!
