September Challenge!

Hi everyone! It's the first day of Spring here in Australia and it is also Fathers Day here for us today :) Happy Fathers Day to all the hubbies out there ! 

I hope you all have a happy and creative month. I will be back in a few days to announce our new social   coordinator !!'

Have fun everyone :) 

Journalling Theme: "Lucky"

You are free to interpret our theme any way you like but please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes some journalling (hidden journalling is fine)

Please welcome back the winner of July challenge and former Design Team member
Hi, I'm  Georgia, I'm 37, from Tasmania Australia where I live with my husband, teenage son and furry cat child, Oscar.
I would describe my style as modern grunge with a real love for art mediums and stamping. I create mostly 12 x 12 layouts and journals with the occasional off the page project and canvas. 

I currently design for Ingvild Bolme, 2Crafty Chipboard, Australian Scrapbooking Memories Magazine, Scrap365 magazine in the UK and Paperhaus magazine as well as running and designing for my own small online scrapbooking storeI am very excited and honored to be back at OUAS as a guest designer. OUAS is very close to my heart as was one of my very first design teams.
