August Guest Designer
Devra Hunt
"I currently live in the Seattle area where I am the COO of my family, who are my husband, our two teenage boys and our awesome dog Snickers. Between the two of them, my husband and myself, I have lots of material to keep me going forever.

I've been scrapbooking for a long time. I found online scrapbooking about 5 years ago. That's when I really took off. I scrapbook for fun, for creative exercise. I scrapbook for stress release. I am not an epic storyteller, but my albums are a view into my family's life. I was in retail in my previous life. I've always loved color, texture and pattern. Scrapbooking allows me to continue to combine all of those things I love.

I do both single and 2 page 12x12 layouts. I'm not sure I can define my style, It's constantly evolving. One thing that is consistent, is that I love using product in unexpected ways to create meaning with fun and humor on my pages. My favorite thing to do on my pages right now is to create layers and clusters with paper and embellishments that come together to tell a cohesive story in the end. 

You can find me socially here:

And here is the amazing layout Devra created inspired by the challenge:

"When I first looked at the book cover, I saw the maps and thought of a travel layout. The more I looked at it, the more I was attracted to the cursive writing in the hand. The script made me think about this "Hello" paper that I purposely purchased after getting tickets to see Adele in concert. It was the perfect inspiration for this challenge and to create a layout about the evening."

Devra, thank you so much for being our guest this month, and sharing your 
amazing work with us!
