Special Guest Spotlight on

We are ending this year's list of fabulous Guest Designers
with a very special lady that we know you will all love.
Her style is absolutely gorgeous and never ceases to inspire!

Lisa Griffith is well known among the scrapbooking community,
and we are thrilled to have her as our December Special Guest!

Let's learn a little more about Lisa through her own words:

Hi! My name is Lisa Griffith and I live in Georgia, USA. I am Canadian 
by birth and American by marriage and I love creating colourful layouts, 
tags and art journals.

I started out in scrapping, as so many of us do, making albums of my son's baby
photos, but over the years and as I discovered the world of mixed media,
it has grown into a passion. I have my own little studio at home, and I love to scrap
as a way to wind down, relax and lose myself in something creative. 

I really admire so many styles, but the one I come back to the most is a little bit vintage, very nature-inspired, with lots of flowers, inks and paints, and always leaning to the messy and chaotic side of things. I always try to include some unique finds on my pages such as wool, lace, fabric, pine cones, twigs, twine, beads or vintage buttons... anything to give my project a little unique twist!

I hope that my page inspires you to join in the challenge this month.
Thank you to More Than Words for the invitation to be a Guest Designer!

Here is a reminder of our December Main Challenge
 followed by Lisa's beautiful layout which was inspired by it.

Read below as Lisa describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and how she chose to incorporate our creative challenge:

When I saw that this month's theme was FAMILY, I knew I was going to make 
a page featuring my boy, Liam. He appears in lots of my layouts... His sweet happy
 smile just lights up my world, and I love being a mom and a wife. 
My guy means everything to me!

I used some Kaisercraft papers and stickers all about Winter and used 
some NUMBERS to remind us how we're counting down the days 
until Christmas! I hope that everyone has a wonderful 
holiday season with family and friends! xo

Lisa's layout is just stunning with is rustic woodgrain background and layers upon layers of flowers, chipboard, twine, and mixed media goodness. It is such a special and beautiful homage to the pivotal person in her family, her son, and the chipboard numbers that she used illustrate the creative challenge perfectly! 
We are totally blown away by it all!

Let's take a look at some details:

A big THANK YOU to Lisa for joining us
