More Inspiration from GDT Rachelle

Hello, hello! I am popping in here really quickly to share more inspiration for our circle challenge from GDT Rachelle.

Before I get to that I do want to send out a big "Thank You" to both Leslie and Rachelle for being our guest designers in May. I know I really enjoyed seeing what they created this month.

Now, on to Rachelle's layout:


I just love everything about Rachelle's beautiful layout - the overlapping/layered circles, the half & half design, those beautiful flowers...it all comes together beautifully. You can read more about Rachelle's layout on her blog here.

We have had so many beautiful entries already this month and there's still time to play along. You have until Saturday, June 2nd to link up!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!

LM #394 - Variety Of Shapes - Hearts

Hello, everyone! Are you recovering from National Scrapbook Day today? I know I have a lot on my to-do list still to do!

We have a new challenge for you today, but before we get to that I want to introduce our second guest designer of May - Rachelle:


Hi there! Rachelle here from Ohio in the USA. Designing is my love to inspire others and to promote the challenges for maximum crafter participation.

I am a mother of 2 grown sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren. I taught 6th grade for 7 years. I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friend's work. My passion quickly turned into an addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back. Now that I am disabled and wheelchair bound, scrapbooking/crafting is such a wonderful therapy that I love.  It's not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I love taking pictures to use to document life. Thus, here I am today enjoying each day filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories.

I am so addicted to the art of scrapbooking and paper crafting.  My skills have expanded since 2009 for creating cards, layouts, tags, altered artwork, planners, mixed media, wood, chipboard, and canvas artwork. I love using a variety of techniques, elegant and shabby chic elements. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I easily adapt my style depending on the type of project.  You will see a mixture of styles while looking through my gallery. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my designs.

Now on to this week's challenge. Our theme for this month is "Variety of Shapes" and this week we are working with hearts.

LM #394 - Use one or more hearts on your layout

Here's a look at what the design team has created, starting with the beautiful creations from our guest designers:
