and so, as our Guest Typists we've asked them both to create a page for our current REPETITION prompt as even more inspiration for you all!!
My name is Natalie Elphinstone. I’m 28years old and live in Melbourne, Australia – a city which regularly experiences all 4 seasons in a day. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and two gorgeous girls aged 3 years and 4 months. In my other life I’m a doctor training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, but at the moment I’m able to enjoy being a stay-at-home mum.
I’ve been scrapbooking for 2 years now and I quickly became obsessed after discovering the wonderful online community of scrappers. I find it hard to define my style because I like to try out everything and my design process changes all the time. However – two things remain constant; journaling and hand-made embellishments. I believe in incorporating a certain amount of writing on almost every page because I think it’s important to preserve the memories as well as the pretty products. And I love to hand make embellishments, usually out of scraps readily available on my very messy desk!
I currently design for ‘From Screen 2 Scrap’ (http://screen2scrap.blogspot.com/) and enjoy sharing my art and life on my blog http://onescrappydoctor.blogspot.com
and here is Natalie's page for our REPETITION prompt!!
now i'd like you to meet Lena!
I’m Lena Schreijenberg and I’m 48 years old. Since my divorce I live with my two children, Carmen (13) and Liam (12), in a small village in the South-West of the Netherlands. The two cats, Harley and Emmy, make our family complete.
I work for three days a week at the courthouse in Middelburg. That’s an office job but in my spare time I just love to create!! That “creating” is something I was born with I guess. As long as I can remember I am always busy to create things. As a little kid I made drawings, knitted and sewed dolls clothes, made cushins for my room…. Now I’m a qualified seamstress and I have made many clothes for myself and my kids. A few years ago I began painting (including this selfportret) and at the moment I’m totally addicted to scrapping!! Just a few weeks ago I took part in a workshop about art journaling and I loved it!! So I guess my latest work is a bit of a mix of scrapping and art journaling.
and this is Lena's page she created for our current prompt!!

Ok, for prompt #27, we want you to use a photo that has type in it. Be sure to incorporate that type somehow into your layout, whether you use it for your title or part of your journaling.
Our guest designer is a fantastic inspiration. We are so happy to have her join us this round. I know I admire her work and I am sure you will as well.
I have been scrap booking for almost five years and I´m totally addicted which means I see artistic possibilities over everything around me. Every day, I enjoy perceiving the colors in my surroundings and I pay close attention to my inner emotions, even if it’s to throw them out only on a layout.
Along the years, scrapbook has provided me a great sort of artistic possibilities. In fact, I can still learn some new techniques everyday and it provides me to express myself in style, mixing paper, embellishments, colors, memories and a message. So, scrap booking to me is not only a way to preserve my memories but, it's the way I do Art.
In my Art I pursue something that has sense to me, which inspires me and that can be different, interesting, cute, creative, colorful and fun! My style is eclectic, crafty. I also love shabby and vintage styles, anything that has a great dimension. Larissa's Blog: http://lariscrap.blogspot.com/
