Lets meet our Guest Design Team member......

Mandy Dodd

Here is some information about Mandy.......

Hello from gorgeous green (though a little cold) Tasmania where I live in a big old house with a big veranda that looks out over the sea with my camera-shy dh and three daughters who just about always feature in my LO’s along with our cat, birds and garden wildlife!
I've been scrapping for over 10yrs now and my style is mostly shabby chic or arty - but I'll do something different every now and then. Most of all I love TEXTURE - fabrics and laces - layering and distressing, inking and PAINT then… colour comes after that! Somehow - it works!
I have a blog 'A Teacup of Scrapisms' where I try to upload all my scrappy news and projects and am bit of a self-confessed 'challenge junkie'!!
I have‘Let’s Get Shabby’ Challenge blog
I’m on design teams for 3 challenge blogs and an online store and been published several times in a Swedish Magazine and online mags.
I've also designed for three of Anam's ipod touch/iphone/ipad apps ‘Sketches to Scrapbook’ which came about after being invited to join her sketch challenge dt for 6mths  earlier last year
I'm very much looking forward to sharing some scrapping experiences with you!

Here are some of Mandy's favourite layouts....
