"Hello all, I'm Helen and I'm an one excited West Australian thrilled to be the guest designer for this challenge. By day I am a primary school teacher and by night I love to escape to my craft room and create, well except on Wednesday nights when I am learning to play bridge. I started scrapbooking when my twin boys were 17 months old and boy time flies as they just turned 17 a couple of weeks ago. I am currently on The Crafty Maven Getaway design team and I really enjoy making scrapbook process videos, I even made one for this layout! I hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration. Take care and happy crafting."

I will let Denise tell you a bit about herself....

"Hello, I’m Denise from Germany. I have been scrapbooker since I got my first camera when I was sixteen. I decorated my albums long time before I ever heard the word “scrapbooking”. Ten years ago, I was infected with all the possibilities of cutters,papers,stamps and embellishments. Last year, I started with mixed media and up to now, I like this style: a little bit neat, a little bit messy."
 
Here is Denise's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Denise! We love your summery mixed media take on our sketch!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....
