It's the middle of the month and that means it is time to share another Homegrown Guest Designer with you.   Please welcome Judy Willey.

"I am so honoured to be guest designer for STG this month. I have been scrapping for many years and have tried lots of different techniques over the times - mixed media is definitely my fav at the moment. However I hope that I have maintained a focus on documenting life's moments for myself and my family. I live in tropical north Queensland with my husband. We see our children and grandchildren often and they feature in much of my work. The saying “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” really struck a chord for me. My daughter in law has just hung up her basketball boots after a wonderful career taking her all around the world, so this layout is for her. "

And here is Judy's layout... I really love it and what it represents.
Thank you Judy for taking time to design this awesome layout for STG. To see more of Judy's awesome work check out her blog -

Make sure you have linked up your layouts via the blog or Facebook page to go in the running to win one of the awesome prizes this month.

Thank you to everyone who played along with last months challenge.  Breast Cancer is something that we all need to be vigilant about.  It is with heavy heart that I share my nan lost her battle with this disease on Tuesday.  Please make sure you check yourself out.

There was a huge number of entries in the challenge, so I am glad it inspired so many of you.  Please remember to add your country code to your entry.  Last week I put together all the challenges for next year and keeping with my "out of the box" inspiration, the design team girls have informed me that they are not like any other challenges around.  As for the design team, I would usually open up a DT call around now to start early next year however, our current design team has decided to stay on for another term.  I have however, added one new member and they will be live in January.  I may very well add more team members so if you were wanting to try out for the team or a guest feature drop me an email to

We have just about filled out sponsor schedule for next year and I have managed to secure a few months with double sponsors so make sure you keep an eye out and play along.   I am just about ready to dive into Semester 3 with my studies so if you do message me and I don't message back within a day, message me again please.  A response might have slipped my mind.  Sorry.

Anyways, lets get on with announcing a winner.

This layout and the theme "Fairy Floss Hair" just nailed the Pink brief I think!
Congratulations to Jodie Digney for our Australian prize from The Resin Rainbow.

Our international winner is....Nicole Doiron.

Thanks again to our Sponsors for October The Resin Rainbow and Accent Scrapbooking.  If you haven't already please support out sponsors and head over and check out their stores.  If you are lucky enough to be a winner please send me an email or a Facebook message and I will arrange to get your prize out to you.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with this month. There are already some great entries.

Hi, Welcome back to another challenge.  This one I think is going to be pretty popular...EVERYONE will find something in this moodboard to inspire them.  So here it is....

The design team girls have a whole variety of layouts to inspire you, they are all very different.  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.


As always we have two prizes up for grabs this month.  One International flair pack from Accent Scrapbooking and this months Australian Sponsor is Flutterby Designs.  Please head over and check out what these companies have to offer.  There is something that will appeal to absolutely everyone and both are small "mum" businesses so you know who you are supporting when you buy from them.

Oh, and remember to put your country code on your entries so we know which prize you go into the draw for.

Have fun
