Welcome Lisa Griffith!!


Hello! My name is Lisa Griffith and I live in the United States with my husband and my eight year old son, Liam. I have been scrapbooking since my son was born but it has become a real passion for me since discovering mixed media several years ago. You can find me most Saturday mornings at estates sales, looking for vintage treasures that I like to incorporate into my work….bits of tattered lace, buttons, vintage photographs, beautiful old magazines….My style varies with the themes I choose and I love to add a lot of texture with masks and paints. I love antiques and anything vintage so the invitation for this challenge was really enjoyable to me! Currently I design for Blue Fern Studios, The Scrapbook Diaries and Pion Design. I would love for you to visit me at www.thepaperattic.blogspot.com. Thank you Scrap Africa for having me! 

Lisa created this gorgeous and stunning, vintage page.
