Good Morning Ladies!

This months international guest designer has been on my watch list for a long time.  She is young and she is extremely talented.  If your not following her already - go do it.  You won't be disappointed.  She has such a pretty style.  Please welcome Laureen Wagener!

Here's what Laureen has to say...
"Hi friends - before we jump over to the "Get to know that blonde girl from Germany" part I wanted to say that I am honored to guest here at Scrap the Girls! Krisy - thank you so much for asking me!

My name is Laureen, I am 22 years old and live in beautiful Germany. I did study Primary School Teaching until this February but had to take a break due to health issues and now will start school again for becoming a physiotherapist in April.

I love to scrapbook layouts as a part of relaxation but also lately for memorykeeping. Other than traditional layouts I am a cardmaking lover! I just love to give away a little smile in an envelope plus I have way too many stamps - I couldn't justify spending all that money and then never using them!

Mostly I do scrapbook pictures of my family and I, my best friend or my sister and her boyfriend, since I don't have kids.

This mood board kind of was a challenge while I tried to make something up for my layout. I really really like the gold and pink in it but don't use pink on my layouts too often, and if I do it is kept to a minimal.

I was inspired by the quote and so I had to use big paper sequins all over the page and sprinkled some gold in using gold glittery Thickers.

Thank you so much for having me!

xx Laureen"

And here is Laureen's take on the Moodboard

 How are those paper sequins!?!  I am just in awe of them.  Something I must try.  Here are a few close ups!

Hi Everyone,

The silly season is officially upon us as of today.  I know there are going to be plenty of Christmas themed scrapbooking challenges around this month so we at Scrap the Girls have decided to set a moodboard that hasn't got any hint of Red, White or Green! But it does have a pretty celebration vibe.

What do you think?
This is such a pretty moodboard and the design team has done a fabulous job creating this months inspiration.  


This months sponsor is Charms Creations with a gift voucher to spend on any thing you like in store.  In the meantime make sure you go check out the store and get your Charms Creations for this challenge.

Thank you to everyone that applied for the most recent design team call.  I will be sifting through all the applications over the next few days and will be in touch with those that have been successful.

I will also be back in a few days to share last months Sketch winner so keep an eye out for that.  We also have some fantastic Guest Designers lined up for this month and those posts will be live around the 15th and 20th of the month.  Make sure you are following the blog so you don't miss out.

I hope you get a bit of scrapping time in amongst all the craziness of the season.

Merry Xmas ladies.
