Hello dear friends! Today we are really excited to have this reveal, and make sure to look who is our Special GD, read the biograhy. Glenda, thank you very much for inspiring our readers!

Our VERY special guest designer is - Glenda Viljoen, we are very honoured to have you here with us!

Glenda Viljoen is the owner of SA Scrapbook Convention, a premier scrapbook convention - the largest of its kind on the African continent. SA Scrapbook Convention has grown to a twice yearly event in Johannesburg and Cape Town and had reached a standard of excellence acclaimed by delegates from all over South Africa and as far afield as South America, Australia and Europe
She is a qualified teacher and has been passionately scrapbooking since 2004 with her work published in various local magazines and publications. She also designs ads and artwork for various magazines and publications in the industry.
In 2010, she attended Ranger University in New Jersey, USA and is now a certified Ranger Instructor. This has enabled her to educate and inspire others in the use of inks, stains, paints and embossing products.
Her contribution to the scrapbook industry in South Africa , the United States and Australia has opened doors to teachers from these countries both to showcase their work and companies’ products and so to enhance the scrapbook industry in South Africa.
She is well known both locally and overseas having attended the major industries shows and events on an annual basis in order to keep South Africa on the cutting edge of new products, techniques and innovations
Her primary goal is to take scrapbooking on a never ending journey beyond mundane, repetitious themes and content to an ever upward attainment of new and exciting layouts and new ideas.
She has a unique creative style both in her layouts and her teaching methods which makes attendance to both her classes and conventions an enjoyable, life changing experience. This is evident in the growing number of delegates who attend her convention year after year.
In closing, she has never lost sight of the purpose of scrapbooking, which is her gift to family and friends that will enable her to leave a legacy of memories.

Hello, my name is Olga, I am 34 years old. I live now in a small town in Belorus, but i was born in Russia, far east. I have a lovely husband and 2 children: 7 and 4 years old.
I found out about the scrapping in 2006, when I was on maternity leave, but started scrapping only 4 years later, in 2010! My first works were cards. .My first layout I made quite recently, in the February and now I just love to work with photos. I don't have any particualar style, everything depends on the materials, photo and the idea. I love work with sketches they help a lot. I also love to play with paint, sometimes the result is unpredictable, yet very interesting.
I am dreaming to frame all my layouts and to hang them on the walls of our house that we are busy building now!
Thank you very much for having me as a Guest Designer!

And here is our awesome sketch:
