Rachelle Olaridge
"Hi there. My name is Rachelle.I am a mother to 2 grown sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren.
I was a 6th grade teacher for 7 years. As a result of failing health I am wheelchair bound and keeping busy is still my goal. Scrapbook is the best and rewarding therapy.

I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. My passion quickly turned into addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back. I am very passionate about this interest. It's not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I truly love the art of design in all aspects of life, Thus, here I am today enjoying my passion as therapy and inspiration for others. Each day is filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories. I define my style using one word it would be Shabby Chic." I love beautifully embellished projects with lots and lots of detail. My love of flowers is reflected on most of my projects. I always have the urge to add a flower here or there. 

Although this is my true style, I easily adapt my style depending on the type of project. 

I love using a variety of techniques, elegant and fun elements. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my inspirational designs.

"I am really excited and honored to be sharing my first layout for this fantastic challenge and site. I went with a shabby chic style and a bit of elegance to create this my friend's wedding day layout. I used soft pastel colors, mixed media, distressing and inking. I added chipboard, resin elements and white metal for an added touch.
