Our New Creative Team Reveal

Thanks to all that applied for the Creative Team... the applications were amazing. I have had a very difficult time deciding on the new team so to all those that did not make this round please do reapply :)

Now with out further delay I would like to make welcome to the team

Wendela Lam

Hi, I’m Wendela Lam from the Netherlands. 37 years old, married with my lovely husband, and a stay at home mommy of 3 boys, Niels 11, Aaron 6 and Daan 3 years old, and one little daughter, Noa 10 years old.
Before I had my kids, I was working on a primary school as a teacher and I love to be creative with the kids there.
When I started scrapbooking, three years ago now, I was totally addicted at the same time. I love it so much, it’s a part of my life. My style is romantic, shabby chique, and I love to use flowers and a lot of lace and fabric.

Bonnie Wellink
My name is Bonnie Wellink aka LaBonita. Originally I am from the Netherlands, but now living in Houston, Texas. I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2006 when my husband and I moved from The Netherlands to the USA and now I'm totally addicted and spend most of my time in my scraproom. I guess my style is a combination of romantic, vintage and grunge, with lots of embellishments. I love to use different techniques, layer patterned papers, distressing, textures and materials. I love to work with sketches, but also let the pictures or papers inspire me to create a layout. I have been a DT member for Creative Scrappers from april -jul 2009.

Pippa Waddell
I live in a beautiful coastal town 2 hours south of Perth, WA with my DH of 10 years, DS5 and DD3. Plus DP9 (darling puppy), DP8 and DK1 (darling kitty). It’s a veritable menagerie! I am a coffee snob, choir singer, food obsessive, aspiring domestic goddess and scrapbook challenge junkie.I was introduced to scrapping about 11 years ago now, like most people at that time, through CM. I bought a bunch of stuff and it sat in the cupboard for the next . . . . oh . . . . five years!It wasn’t until my son was born in 2004 that I pulled all the stuff out again. A friend of mine then took me to my first scrapbooking store in Perth. It was lust at first sight!When we moved to our new town, I joined a weekly scrapbooking group at the local arts centre with the view to finishing my son’s baby album. That was when the addiction really took hold. In fact, I remember my exasperated DH, looking at the dining room table covered in scrappy mess (AGAIN!) remarking “Once a week should be enough!”. Oh, the poor, poor man LOLSince then I have served on a couple of DT’s (scrapbooking4less.com.au and reallyjustribbons.com.au) as well as administrating two scrapping crop groups in the local area and teaching at a LSS. These days though it is all a little more relaxed. I still go to my weekly crop group (coming up to 6 years now) and I am fortunate to have many talented and inspirational scrappy friends that get together quite regularly. I am totally addicted to challenge blogs and this where I find most of my inspiration :)

Hi there, my name Rochelle La'Brooy-McIver and I just love to scrap! I am married to Daryl and have 3 children Esther 9yrs, Fletcher 7yrs and Hudson 4yrs. We live in the beautiful south west of Western Australia.
My introduction to scrapping came from my sister Sharon who has been scrapping for about 8 years. She had tried unsuccessfully to get me to start many times, I always said that I just couldn't fit another craft in. When I fell pregnant with Hudson I thought "what the heck I'll give it a go" and I haven't looked back, I just love it, in fact its hard to fit anything else in anymore (eg housework!). I love that I am creating beautiful memories for my family and they love looking at their layouts too. At the moment I am loving vintage/shabby embellishments, lace, ribbon and flowers. I loved doing the CT challenge for White with 1 as it was quite out of my comfort zone. Yellow is not a colour I work with normally and doing a pink layout with no flowers, phew that was hard! but I do love a creative challenge! I'm really looking forward to being on the White with 1 Challenge Blog Team and look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations over the next few months.

Hayley Turner
Hi, my name is Hayley Turner (Hayles) and am Mum to Nate who just turned 1 and DD Isabelle who just turned 3. My children are the whole reason I started scrapbooking, nearly 3 years ago and I would have to say I was addicted from the word go!!! Every spare minute I have I find myself heading to the scrap room and as of lately I have become a real challenge junkie which was how I found this great challenge blog!!!
I am looking forward to many great challenges over the month's and hope you find plenty of inspiration, as I know I did....

Kell Lusted
Hi I’m Kellie (AKA Kell) I am a mum to Bailey and Ashlee and LOVE to SCRAP! 5 years on and I still LOVE it. I am a challenge junkie so I am excited to be on White with one team. I don’t have a set style I just go with what goes at the time, but I do tend to scrap to the centre of the page. I look forward in seeing every ones creations in the up coming months J

Hi, I am Susan Longman...a proud stay at home mum of 2 beautiful kids...a boy, 5 and a girl, 3.5. Perfect for scrapping as I am not deprived of either layout type :) I have been scrapping for 5 years now (starting when I had my boy) and I have been running White With 1 for just over 18 months ... I started the blog as white is my favourite colour and I love it partnered with just one other...I hope you will all get out of your comfort zones and give the challenges a go as although they seem simple in criteria it is quite a challenging layout type to pull off.
Along with White with1 I have another challenge blog Scrap the Boys ...so if you have a boy and need inspiration it is a great place to save to your favourites.

Emma Allen
Hi my name is Emma, I am 28 years old and mum to Isabella, Jordan and Jett. 3 children under 4 keeps me super busy but i love taking the time to scrap about them, they are my inspiration. I have been scrapping for around 6 years and am still as obsessed about it as i was when i first started. I dont really have any specific scrapping style just whatever i like at the time. Super thrilled to be on suses white with 1 team, love the challenge.
