We are so excited to have a new guest designer to share with you! Please welcome Melissa!

My husband and I have been married for 8 years and I am a stay at home mom to my three kiddos: a 5 year old son and 3 year old identical twin girls. I am currently attending school to get an associate's degree in Graphic Design and work part time from home doing marketing mailings. I spend my spare moments scrapbooking, making cards, doing cross stitch, reading and trying out new crafts every chance I get. I feel out of sorts if I don't have an in progress project to work on. Which is probably why I love scrapbooking so much....there is always more pictures to scrap!

And here is the beautiful layout that Melissa created to share with us...
Thank you Melissa for joining our team this week! Please take the time to visit Melissa and leave her a little blog love!! You can find her blog HERE!

Here is what our design team did with this challenge...
Libeeti used two separate photos of each of her boys, and one photo with both of them, to create this fun "beach boys" layout. She used #40 sketch from Scrap A Little (Jan sketch). The cs and the cream strip are DCWV and the matting is K&Co., the other strips are die cut and scraps. She also used seashell as embellishments and a ribbon flower made according to the tutorial also from Scrap A little.

Cassie created this layout with 6 photos by using 1 main photo and 5 smaller accent photos.
DianaDiana thought these papers and stickers from October Afternoon Seaside were perfect for her Plymouth Harbor photos.

For the center flower embellishment, Jessica used a circle punch to emphasize one of her favorite attractions at the B&B - the chickens that were running everywhere. She adhered it to the center of the flower, then added a 3D glaze and chunky glitter to finish it off.

Barb took advantage of this week's challenge to get caught up on some scrapbooking from a few years ago. She was also able to use up some supplies that have been in her scrapbooking room for years!

Now, we would love to see what you can do with 3 or more photos/pictures! Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win this week's prize!
