New DT Introducing Taru

Hi everyone! My name is Taru! I´m so excited to be part of the Challenge YOURself design team! I live in Rauma, Finland with my sons Sami and Niko. I´m retired about 10 years now. I love cats. I have four cats and my fifth cat come to me soon. I saw how my friend made cards on spring 2007.  Inspirited by her I began make my own cards with 3D images. But then I found stamps and it was big love right away! Then I found scrapbooking, mixed media and art journal. I love take photos – I always take a lot of photo on my life.  I love little bit crazy, funny and silly photos! On my works I really love bold colors, shapes, layers, stamps, stencil and dimension. I love use different mediums, but I also love make like “clean and simple”! Just like what mood I have when I crafting.  Would you come with us playing with our challenge?? I really love to see your art.

New DT Introducing Susanne

Say hello to Susanne!

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri I relocated to Indiana after I married a really great guy I met at work.  It is now 30 years later and we have two grown children.  That really great guy recently retired and we are enjoying the empty nest phase of our lives.  I began dabbling in scrapbooking 15 years ago when I left the business world to be a SAHM. In recent years, I served on the Get It Scrapped design team where I learned a lot about design.  I currently serve on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge team which helps me scrap through my considerable stash.  I am looking forward to scrapping more pictures, old and new, of myself while hanging out here at the Challenge YOUrself blog.  All my scrappy exploits can be found on my blog - Snaps and Snippets or on Facebook.

New DT introducing Gemma

Come and meet Gemma!!

Well I'm a Mum to two kids, Cameron and Caitlin, and full time carer for my husband Mark. I took up scrapbooking when he first got ill as I wanted to preserve all our memories for the kids when they grew up. A friend introduced me to the Challenge YOUrself blog a while back and I found it a great way to inspire me to be in front of the camera as well as behind it.

New DT Introducing Åsa

Hi everyone!
As promised, this week we will be introducing the new DT members to you so you can get to know them ;)     Say hello to Åsa!  

My name is Åsa Johansson and I´m 38 years old. I live in Sweden with my family (my partner and our three kids and a dog). I work as a teacher. 
Scrapbooking is a huge part of my life. It´s like an addiction, a lovely addiction. I´ve been scrapbooking since 2007 when I was pregnant with our twin girls and couldn´t work for a while. When the girls were born, the time for scrapbooking disappeared. But when I started to blog in 2012 the time was back for crafting.  
Some months ago I promised myself that I had to do layouts with photos that included me, for the sake of my children. I want them to have some pictures of their mum too. It´s always me holding the camera.  To be a member of this DT is just perfect for me and I´m so proud to be. I´m so looking forward to the following months. 

If you want to see more of my work please visit my blog:
