New Contributor!

Hey there and happy Monday! It's Pam here announcing our newest contributor to the blog! I have had the honor of meeting her once in Michigan (while she was visiting the US) and I am super excited to have her here as she is talented scrapbooker. I know you will love her posts and projects as I do. You can visit her blog here: and her gallery here to see more of her beautiful work.

Hi my name is Lesley I have been happily married to my husband for 41 years and have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren.  I have been scrapbooking and stamping for about 10  years,  I have never settled into any particular style but like to try anything that is the trend at the time.  I also love quilting and travelling.

I live in Tasmania, a tiny Island at the bottom of Australia in a small seaside town.  So what better way to fill in my time than by scrapbooking.  I don't do much 'off the page' projects or cards, although I do tinker with both occasionally.  Being the grandmother of 3 gorgeous grandchildren I am never short of photos to scrap and have little time for other projects although I have a mountain of travel pictures waiting to be scrapped.  Am very interested currently in the Mixed Media techniques and also love layering and fussy cutting, and of course flowers on pages.  However, I also love clean line pages using templates especially on my 'boy pages', and often use sketches for my inspiration.

Here are a couple of pages I love that she submitted as reader's pages using templates from the blog!
