September Guest Designer
Anna Uhras

"Hi I'm Anna and I'm from a little village in the middle of Sweden. My family of seven, hubby, five kids (21 - 3 ) and me are living at our farm, where my hubby works, and I work halftime as a hairdresser. I have to admit I'm addicted to Scrapbooking and all the pretty papers and supplies around our awesome hobby. As often as I can I love playing along at Scrap Our Stash, therefore I'm so happy and honored that Brenda and Rochelle asked me to guest this month. I´m also a member of some design teams, which is so fun and very developing. My first contact with this hobby was about 2007, mostly cardmaking. But I think my "real" start was about Fall 2012 when I discovered Scrapbooking with layouts. I mostly do traditional 12 x 12 but also letter size sometimes. My style is hard to define for me, it depends of what has inspired me at that moment. But I love rich and bright colors, layers, white space, thread and even machine stiching is often to find on my layouts.

You are more than welcome to visit me at my blog:

And today Anna is sharing the amazing layout she created inspired by the challenge:
"Practice In Writing"
"I was inspired by the colors, the alphas and the school theme. The design on the book cover gave me the idea of the design of my layout. I found some pages from an old dictionary and used it with a picture wheel die. The papers as well are pretty school/alpha inspired.
Hope you found some inspiration here so you will join us for this lovely challenge."
