My name is Missy Whidden. I am 36, and I’ve been married to Marshall for 12 years. We’ve been together for almost 18! We have two beautiful little girls. Reese is five and Paige is three. They are the light of our lives! We live in a small town called Frostproof , Florida . I’m a stay-at-home mom, and I am also a Spinning instructor at our YMCA. When I’m not scrapping, I love exercising, reading and doing fun things with my family. I started scrapping in the summer of 2006, just before Reese was born. I helped my mother-in-law put together a baby book for my husband, and I was instantly hooked! I love the creativity that comes with scrapping. I love patterned paper, inks, mists and bright colors. I can’t really describe my style…I like to try everything! I love letting my photos be the center of the page, and I almost always use them as my inspiration. I love working with sketches and challenges. Scrapbooking is very therapeutic for me, and I try to do something scrappy-related every day.
Missy's work is one that is always instantly recognizable to me!! AND she has two of the cutest little girls you'll ever see!! Here are some examples for you...
Missy has a ton of inspiration for you to check out at her blog here: http://littlenuggetcreations.blogspot.com.
And, like you, I was asked to create a layout inspired by my STAR...
Your challenge is to design a layout in the style of the STAR, (not a scraplift of any of the STARS'
designs) so be sure to go do your homework and check our her blog to see what inspires you the most.
They will then be judged by the STAR. Each week points will be awarded for first (4 pts), second(3pts) and third (2pts), and all other entries will receive 1 pt. At the conclusion of the competition the one with the most points will bag the STAR prize, with second and third receiving a consolation prize.
Have fun ladies, and I cannot wait to see what you have created.....your layouts should be uploaded over here... http://scrappinpatch.co.nz/coppermine/index.php?cat=64 by 8pm Tuesday 22nd May 2012.
**NOTE: Please include a blurb about what aspect of the STAR's designs and style have inspired you, and how you incorporated them into your layout. Additionally, please include your name in the title of your layout to assist with the judging- thanks!!**
