Rachelle is celebrating her fourth term with Scrap Our Stash and we are excited she has agreed to design with us another term.  
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.

And...for today's inspiration, Rachelle has created the beautiful layout below inspired by the
January Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge:
Hello scrappers! Rachelle here and I am excited to share my challenge inspiration for you. I created a holiday page using my grandchildren as the focal point. I added a bit of mixed media background followed by 5+ patterned paper, red-white twine, and paint/mist.selected from the left of the Tic-Tac-Toe Board.
