This week we have a guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Delsie Mowbray!!


I will let Delsie tell you a bit about herself....

"I'm a career soldier (34 years) in the Australian Army Psychology Corps - somehow I've managed to have three wonderful children and now have four gorgeous grand-daughters. I fell into scrapbooking with my elder daughter ten years ago and I have loved it ever since. I'm a bling girl - I adore flowers and sparkle. I have two very different styles - vintage/shabby chic and the opposite clean, sharp lines of paper piecing and punch-work. I'm delighted to have this opportunity to share my 'take' on this month's lovely sketch."

Here is Delsie's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Delsie and sharing your talent with us!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....
