Hi Everyone,
How are you all going with this months Sketch by Sue?  Well I have a little more inspiration for you in the form of out #14 Homegrown Guest Designer.  Please welcome Farrel Taylor.

Hello there! My name is Farrel Tailor and recently my loving husband and gorgeous 3 sons along with myself moved back to my home state of Western Australia. I have been a crafter for about 14 years and started my love of crafts as a card maker which soon turned into scrapbooking once my first son was born. 

My style of crafting is what you would call messy! I love all forms of mixed media whether that be on scrapbook layouts, a canvas, cards or art journaling. I love stepping out of my comfort zone and getting my hands messy....I'm not truely happy unless my fingers are stained with glorious colours of inks and sprays!!! 

I am very blessed to be apart of some amazing Design Teams which are Scrap The Boys, The Crafter's Workshop, Funky Flairs Studio, Sassy Scrappers and The Dusty Attic.

And here is Farrels take on the sketch...

Another awesome take on the sketch.  Isn't amazing how a sketch can be interpreted so differently.
What do you see?  Make sure you link up. Remember that if you don't have a blog you can still play along by posting it on the wall of the Facebook group.

Thanks Farrel for playing along with us this month.

It's that time of the month to bring you some fresh inspiration. This months Homegrown Guest Designer is Tanya Froud.

"Hi my name Tanya,i live in the country music capital with my husband and 3 kids. My go to scrap style is mixed media and lots of white space the messier the better! I am on a couple of design teams, Funky Flair Studio and Shop and Crop.
You can veiw more of my work on my blog at
I try to sneak in an hour each day of scrapping, which can be a juggle when working full time and managing a family.... but hey who needs sleep anyway!"

I look at this layout and it is very much like mine.  I had created my layout before I invited Tanya to be a guest and she had no idea what I created.  Great minds think alike.

Thanks Tanya for being our Homegrown designer this month.

Remember to link up your layouts or share them via the Facebook page to go into the draw for this months prizes.

Hi Scrap the Girls Lovelies.

Hi from the depths of Winter here in Australia.  This month we are possibly heating things up a bit with this moodboard.  Again, interpret it how you like.  the Colour or the Book...It's up to you so long as it's ONLY girls. ;)

This moodboard was inspired by a class that I taught at the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo back in June called 50 Shades of Grey.  It was all about how you can use one colour to create so many layers and shades. So, say hello to "Mr Grey".

And here are the Design Teams layouts to inspire you....


Remember to link up your layouts via the blog or send them through on the Facebook page.   They will all be considered.

This months challenge is sponsored by Colour Blast.  Make sure you head over and check out their products.  My layout was created using the Colour Spray and Shimmer Dusts in Road Base and Midnight.
