Welcome to our September guest designer ...

Adele Beck with her delightful take on our challenge this month..

 I used twine to stitch along the wire the diecut birds are sitting on.

Heya, my name's Adele.  I currently live in Utah in the USA, but I'm really from all over.  I love to travel, and I've been lucky enough to live in various parts of the US, Chile, Spain and several places in the UK.  I'm a linguist by trade, and I've lectured in the UK and the US. I started my PhD, but it's currently on hold. I'm hoping to pick it back up in December, in Australia. 

I started scrapping as a Freshman at Uni. I mostly scrap my travels, but 4 years ago, when my first nephew was born, I started keeping his books. In January I got a second nephew, so now I have two boys to scrap.

To see more of Adele's lovely work please see her blog -

Here are two more layouts showcasing her work.

Thank you so much for guesting with us on ARTastic this month Adele. Your pages are so full of energy and life.  It has been wonderful having you join us.

You still have time until the end of the month to upload your own take on this challenge.  We'd love to see what you can do with our inspiration artwork this month.
