For Leslie, the hardest challenge is to NOT use cardstock.
"I want to reach for it EVERY time I do a layout. In fact...I did at first then remembered, OH WAIT!
So I've completed the layout for this challenge using no cardstock. Another thing that used to be challenging for me, but it's like an old comfy blanket.. I mix and match papers, regardless of their colors/textures/patterns. I love color and will splash it in there whenever I can".
Our Guest Designer ..............Leslie Ashe.
Hi! I'm Leslie Ashe and I'm SO excited and HONORED to be your guest here at Start Me Up. I live in Fort Worth, Texas (home of the Stockyards, Dr. Pepper & yummy Mex Tex food) with
my sweet hubby. We're soon to experience something new in our lives...an empty nest. Our oldest is off at college & the youngest starts this fall...wow! No matter the distance, they will
always be the center of my pages. they are my true inspirations and treasures!
I've been scrapping for over 13 years now. It's my passion!
I've been so lucky and feel quite honored to have some of my work published in Scrapbook Trends, CARDS, Simply Handmade along with several Scrapbook Trends Idea Books.
I have an upcoming first time publication coming up in the July/August issue of Creating Keepsakes.
