A warm S:CY Welcome to STEFANIE SEMPLE, from Journaling Junkie!!

She also has a cool surprise for us, which I'll be telling you about when we reveal the S:CY Sketch for April 22!

S:CY April 2011 Guest Designer~ Stefanie Semple

Stefanie was kind enough to send us a little info about herself in the form of a Bio.
Stefanie's Bio~

Hello there, my name is Stefanie and I am a scrapbooking addict. I started scrapbooking about 9 years ago and haven’t looked back. My hubby of 23 years, three children and three cats give me all the excuses I need to take photos and document our lives. We live in Cape Town, South Africa and this is a wonderful place to call home.
I am passionate about journaling and host a journaling challenge blog.  It's located HERE at Journaling Junkie. I want to be able to remember and record all about the day that my photo was taken, the sights, the smells, who was there and what we did. I usually write as though talking to my children.
I converted to digi in July last year and love that it is so quick and less messy.
However I still teach paper scrapbooking from home. My website is HERE. 
I have learnt so much from Jessica Sprague’s video classes and can now even create my own templates from sketches and when scraplifting others’.
I currently serve on 2 design teams: Elsie’s Pieces ~ the digichick and Design by Tina ~ Enchanted Studio Scraps.

Here are 4 of my favourite LOs to share with you...
