Guest Designer: Stacia Brandt

Today we have a special guest designer who has worked with this months sketch to give you some more inspiration. Please welcome Stacia Brandt:

"Hi! My name is Stacia Brandt and I’m from Manheim, Pennsylvania; a small town in Lancaster County. I’m the mother of two children, age 11 and 1 ½; who you will see in many of my pages along with our pitbull, Roxy. I’m the wife of an amazing man named, Keith and a Work-at-home mom. I am excited to have been ask to guest design this month at Life. Paper. Scrapbook and I look forward to sharing my layout!
I’ve been scrapbooking for 12+ years and crafting for all my life. I love paper! You will never see digital work from me. I am partial to the bright, colorful and vibrant colors as well as fun, spunky layouts! My favorite color is green, but I rarely scrapbook with it. I have an addiction to iced tea and Starbucks…and of course, all things scrappy!"

Here is a reminder of the sketch for this month:
And here is Stacia's take on it:
I am totally in love with her take of mixing it up with two photos, lots of bright colours and even more so when she told me she had made the little Cookie Monster and Elmo from scratch! Make sure you visit Stacia's blog ScrapStuff by Stacia to see more of her fantastic work

To play along with this months sketch you can find all the details HERE
