Design Team Introduction ~ Elena Bianconi

Good morning!
Welcome to day two of our Design Team introductions!

Our second designer is celebrating her second term as a Scrap Our Stash designer!
Join us in welcoming back
Elena Bianconi

Elena we are excited to have you return for another term and looking forward to the inspiration you will be sharing with us this term.
"I'm Elena B, 35 years old (not for long). I live in the countryside near the beautiful city of Bologna (Italy). During the day I'm wife to a wonderful man, mother of a beautiful little girl and owner of a beautiful dog. But at night when everybody is asleep, I turn into a crafter!! 

I sleep very little and work so much with great satisfaction, my hands never stop working!
My relaxation is my hobby.

I started with decoupage in the nineties, passing through the lovely world of doll houses, to arrive (and never stop!) at scrapbooking and mixed media in 2009."

Check out Elena's wonderful take on our
July Stash Challenge:

"Winter Sea"
"Every winter, we go one or two days to the sea because we feel different emotions than during the  summer. This year we had  warm and sunny days in January, so we took a nice walk, barefooted and feed the seagulls
