Hi everyone, welcome back for another fun challenge!! We have a fantabulous Guest DT, and an amazing prize – so read on!

A little bit of housekeeping first; when you upload your creation to our inlinkz widget, please link to the POST in your blog where your creation is presented, NOT to your main blog. Makes it a little easier when we surf around to see your creations. THANK YOU!!

Before we continue, I must also announce, that this is the last challenge for one of our DT members; Anne. Thank you Anne for all your inspiration. We will miss you very much!!

Now – let’s re-visit our sponsor for this month;

 My Little Shoebox!

Our own Norine Borys is part of their DT and has sent me a fabulous array of My Little Shoebox products to give away! Thank you Norine!

And now meet our amazing Guest Designer for this challenge; Iris Babao Uy!!

I am a scrapper from The Philippines, a wife and a mother to two sweet girls Nicole and Cheska. I rarely plan my pages – I let a photo or a patterned paper inspire me and I take it from there. I love the shabby chic and romantic style but I also enjoy working with bold patterns and striking colors. I’m an ink and paint type of person. I just have to get it a little messy to consider my page done. If I don’t have ink and paint on hand, then I just tear little bits of elements and stick it randomly for the sheer fun of it

I am fortunate to be designing for Webster’s Pages, Basic Grey, and Hambly Screen Prints. I was also named as one of the first two Prima Masters. I am also currently a designer Aussie Scrapsource and Dusty Attic and an endorsed teacher for WOW embossing powders. My work can be seen craft books as well as craft magazines such as Creating Keepsakes and the like.

And now for this fortnight’s challenge, we’re doing a PHOTO challenge!

They are NZ’s leading Kaisercraft stockist, as well as stocking products from all major scrapbooking suppliers (Prima, Bo Bunny, Graphic 45, October Afternoon, doCrafts etc).

 Another treat for you is our GUEST DESIGNER for this challenge, please say hello to Stacey Michaud!

Hi everyone!  I am so thrilled to be here guestdesigning for Challenge Me Happy!  I am a teacher by day and an avid scrapper at night!  My style shifts according to the product or theme I am working with at the moment.  What really drives me in the creation of my art is my desire to tell the story behind the photos. My absolute favorite part is the journaling, finding the right words to express how I feel or to share an everyday moment. I have had the honor of being published in Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers and Scrapbook Trends magazines.  I currently design for Webster’s Pages, Teresa Collins Designs, Scrapstreet.com Magazine and MyScrapbook Nook kit club.  I am so honored Annelie invited me to play in this challenge!

Visit Stacey’s blog here: http://staceymichaud.blogspot.com/

And before I reveal our challenge, please meet our Guest Designer for this challenge: Mahlin Wiggur!

Here’s a little bit about Mahlin:

Mahlin, this is me, the Swedish girl who, by day is an ordinary 30 yr. old mother to Vilmer 3 yrs, working as a special eds teacher for kids with Asperger and Autism… but then… at night… I turn into that scrappy girl, who plays with colour until floors, walls and ceiling all have some splashes of colour. Happy colours. I work with playfulness, I love colours, and texture. I will follow the creative process where it takes me. No right or wrong. I let my feelings do the talking when creating, and I always choose my photo last. 

I design for some very inspiring manufacturers like Bo Bunny, Shimmerz Paints, Nikki Sivils and Manorhouse Creations, and a superfun UK kit club –  Scraprat.

Visit Mahlin’s blog for some more fantastic inspiration: http://mahlin.blogg.se/
