Hello Everyone

Welcome to Monday and I hope that you had a super, restful weekend.

Today is the start of a new challenge and it's a vintage theme!

We would love to hear your stories and journalling about your projects too, so please be sure to share that with us too! ;-)

Guest Designer Badge

We have an amazing Special Guest Designer for our challenge today!
She is really an amazing creator and her styling is fabulous!
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 Thank you Scrap Africa for having me! 

Lisa created this gorgeous and stunning, vintage page.

The design and styling is so fabulous!
