Hello and welcome to our reveal of 
Stash Challenge #30!!!

Before we get started with our new challenge meet our
September Guest Designer
Sue Smith
"My name is Sue Smith and I live in the north of New Zealand on a pretty lifestyle block, with my husband Mike. We have three children, two boys and a girl, all happily settled, two in NZ and our eldest son, in Sydney. We have 3 grandchildren, with promises of more to come!! I have been scrapping for about 15 years and still LOVE it! After scrapping teenagers and weddings, I now mostly scrap my beautiful little grandies!! They are definitely my main inspiration! Of course I have too many photos and not enough hours!!
I love to try different scrapping styles, but the photo is always the focus for me.
I am really excited to be Guest Designing this month, as I love the Scrap Our Stash challenges!
