Design Team Introduction ~ Rachelle Olaridge

It's another day of Design Team introductions!
Meet our fifth talented Designer, 
Rachelle Olaridge
Rachelle is celebrating her second term with Scrap Our Stash and we are so pleased she will be with us another term and we're looking forward to the beautiful inspiration she will be sharing with us the next six months.
"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.

Rachelle has created a stunning layout to share with you inspired by our 
January Stash Challenge

"Hi scrappers. 
Welcome to 2016 and so glad you have joined us here on SOS.Rachelle here very excited to share my DT layout for the new year.To created this page I was inspired by the cat, snow, and cover colors. My friend's little lady has on black & white; the cat colors. She is standing in the snow and the white paint splatters shows along with white enamel dots. I applied texture base around the focal point with splashes of turquoise and red spritz. Can't forget those snowflakes because I really love snow. Total winter fun.
I hope you have been inspired today to create your layout for this challenge. We can't wait to see your design.
