Special Guest Spotlight on

To go along with our delicious recipe challenge this month,
we knew we had to have the most exquisite Guest Designer join us,
who would be able to wow all of you with her delectable talent!

Without further ado, we are thrilled to present to you this month...

STACEY YOUNG is renowned among the online scrapbooking community for her shabby chic style and so much more!  She produces the most scrumptious creations with lots of busy layers of yummy embellishments and lovely happy colours.  One word comes to mind when looking at her work... DELIGHTFUL!

Let's learn more about Stacey from her own words:

"My name is Stacey Young.  I am Mum of 4 little boys and wife to Tim.  I have been scrapbooking for probably 12 years now and crafting and painting my whole life.  I love everything about this craft, the products and the creative process.  As a busy Mum of 4, I don't get to sit in my studio as much as I would like to these days but when I do it's a wonderful place to relax and let my creative soul take over.  

I would consider my style a mix of many things: shabby chic, fun, playful, romantic... but a few things are for certain, you will always find colour and layers upon layers in my creations.  I absolutely adore mixed media and squeeze in as many elements as I can on one page, always something to look at and find in my creations.  I don't just stop at scrapbooking pages; I also love creating cards, tags, canvas pieces and the odd off the page project and mini album.

I am currently on the Design Team for Prima Marketing, my most favourite brand ever.  I am a Prima flower girl and always will be.  Over the years I have been involved in so many different design teams, too many to list, which have all shaped me to be the crafter than I am today."

Here's a reminder of our September DELIGHT & RECIPE challenge
followed by Stacey's beautiful interpretation.

Here is what Stacey has to say about her layout:

"I really loved this "recipe" challenge.  I'm not much of a cook in the kitchen, but I love to cook up some creations in my craft room! :)  I loved adding all of those elements from the art RECIPE: the die cuts, flowers, mist and the flair button.  And the word DELIGHT was a perfect title for my picture.  This little man of mine brings me so much joy, and he is such a delight to be around!  We have loads of fun together.  Thank you for having me share in the fun 
of this fantastic September challenge!"

Now let's take a look at close-ups of Stacey's many layers of goodness:

This layout is so sweet!  Every single added detail, from the stenciled and misted background to the ink-stitched edge, is truly beautiful.
