123 May 2015 Challenge - Guest Design Team Member - Fiona Paltridge

Welcome back to May 123 Challenge and the first of our three Guest Design Team Members - Fiona Paltridge...

Hello Scrappy peeps. I am so thrilled to be here sharing my take on the current challenge. A little about me ..... I live in South Australia with my hubby and ADHD foxy Jack Russell X puppy Xander. My children are all grown up and have moved on to bigger and better things but they are still the subjects of most of my scrapping and they have learnt that no selfie is safe! I have been scrapping for about 15 years and my style has grown and changed so much over that time. I love to use mixed media in my creations in fact I don't recall not using it now for at least the last 2 years! I design for 2Crafty Chipboard here in Australia and OTR an online challenge site but I also design for 3 International Teams, Limor Webber Designs (Canada), Memories Trend (Greece) and Scrapki-wyzwanio (Poland - challenge site to 7Dots Studio). I am also a tutor and designer with Scrappy Chat Designs, an online kit club and finally I recently joined the design team over at Scrap Around the World. Oh, and I work fulltime. Gee I'm busy! but that's how I like to be. I really enjoyed this months challenge. I think beige is a fabulous colour to use when showcasing old photos like the one I've used. I hope you have fun with it too. You can find me on the book of faces (just search my name) to keep up to date with my design work or you can follow my blog at or you can catch up with me in person at the Brisbane Papercraft Expo next month, I'll be teaching each day from 2.30pm.
