Introducing Helena Reinedahl ...

our second guest designer for October with her lovely take on our challenge this month ...

This is so very pretty - you forget how tiny those little hands can be !!

My name is Helena and I am a 35 year old librarian and I looove scrapbooking!

I live with my family (husband and three daughters aged 6 and 4 years and 4 months) in Sweden. Children, work, house and garden takes a lot of time, so scrapbooking is an essential hobby that helps me to relax. I also just love being creative and try to make beautiful things out of everything.

I began scrapping about 7 years ago, doing my wedding album, although I didn't realize it was scrapbooking I was doing... After that I got in touch with a scrapbooking group in my home town, and joined them for some time. I learned a lot during that time, but now I mostly scrap at home, late nights, when the kids are sleeping :)

I scrap in different ways, sometimes I'm only thinking about capturing that special moment when the photo was taken, sometimes I start with a sketch, some colours or a technique I want to use and then I pick some photos to match to the LO.

My scrapping styles are also different. Either lots of flowers in a sweet romantic style, or more rough with paint, colours, textures and masks. I like the clean and simple style but more often end up with "more is more". Favourites are alphas, masks, texture, flowers and vivid colours. I'm also almost in love with my Silhouette Cameo.

Thank you so much for letting me guest with you this month, my first GD assignment ever!
