Crazy about chevron

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend... anyone watching the Olympics?? I don't normally watch TV at all but I have had it on today watching snippets of the opening ceremony & my DH has been watching the swimming & cycling tonight.

I've been having a play with some of the new & utterly fabulous Rainbow Splendour Chevron so I thought I'd pop in & share :-)  I love the impact the chevron has on this page.

I haven't scrapped much at all in the past couple of months since my mojo decided to pack up & leave home LOL!! but I did do this very simple double pager for my youngest DS's album & I love how the Rainbow Splendour tree & pinwheels take centre stage.

Thanks for popping in & I hope you've had the opportunity to enjoy using some gorgeous Rainbow Splendour goodies :-)
Take care

Our Guest Designers!!!

I am very excited to announce two lovely ladies who are going to guest design for Rainbow Splendour next month.  They will have lots of inspiration for you during our birthday month (next month).  Please welcome.......

Sarah Martin

A little about Sarah:
Hi my name is Sarah and I'm a 29-year-old Mummy. I also work casually as a Radiographer- doing X-rays, CT scans and mammograms.
I have two beautiful children; Madeline my cheeky 3 year old and Lachlan my darling son, an angel in Heaven.
When I'm not scrapping, working or chasing my daughter around with a camera, I love to spend time outdoors and love quality time with friends and family.

My main hobby/addiction is scrapbooking : ) If I don't get to scrap for about a week I find myself itching to do so. I predominately scrap layouts but also make the occasional card, mini album or off the page project.

I'd like to wish a huge Happy 1st Birthday to Rainbow Splendour and the gorgeous Chloe.

Ever since the inception of Rainbow Splendour I have been a huge fan of Rainbow Splendour goodies. They are just so well made and versatile. They can add so much colour and texture to a page.

I'm so honoured to be guest designing for a company that I adore. I hope to inspire you all and show you the awesomeness of Rainbow Splendour goodies.
If you'd like to stop by my blog, I'd love to see you there. You can see a multitude of layouts there using Rainbow Splendour goodies!

And Marisa Page:

A little about Marisa:
I have been scrapping for approximately 7 years now, my main photo subjects are my 2 gorgeous grand daughters but also my kids [still working on getting there albums up to date, I think it will be years before I am anywhere near finished].
I love trying different things when scrapping but if you give me just paper I would be happy, you can just create so much with it.
My current favourite is using paint/mists/rub-on mix on my background paper.
So other then scrapping what do I do? I work as a nurse in age care which I totally love.
And when I can I love going for walks, reading, gardening but hey scrapping takes priority over these for sure.
So that is a little about myself. I hope you love what I create with the Rainbow Splendour products.
You can see more of Marisa's creations on her blog here:
I can't wait to see what these ladies create using Rainbow Splendour embellishments!!
