"Hi everyone! My name is Taru Jehkonen! 
I´m so excited to be Guest DT on your lovely challenge on November

I live in Rauma, Finland with my sons Sami and Niko. I´m retired about 12 years now. I love cats. I have a four sweet cats and they ventured on my scrapbook page often.

I saw how my friend made cards on spring 2007. Inspirited by her and I began make my own cards with 3D images. But then I found stamps and it was big love right away! Then I found scrapbooking, mixed media and art journal. I love take photos – I was always take a lot of photo on my life. I love little bit crazy, funny and silly photos!
On my works I really love bold colors, shapes, layers, stamps, stencil and dimensions. I love use different mediums, but I also love make like “clean and simple”! Just like what mood I have when I crafting.
Please come and visit me on social media!

And now check out the gorgeous layout Taru created based on this month's board:
Taru shared this with us about her page:
"When I saw bingo board and the option ”burlap”, I just knew I would use that.
I don´t know why, but I have been so inspired with burlap, cheesecloth and canvas fabric these last few months.  So I really wanted to use burlap. I used the row:
 color brown – burlap – oval shape. 
I built my page with oval frame, fabrics and leafs….. I hope that you like it."
And here are a couple of close ups....

Inspired by Taru's awesome layout and/or the challenge?
