C is for Chipboard

For November we are Scraplifting this stunning layout by Michelle Logan

Here is Michelle's bio -
Hi Michelle Logan here to tell me a little about myself!
I am a stay at home Mum to 2 boys that are now teenagers, and am lucky
enough to have an understanding and supportive husband.
We live in suburban Melbourne , Australia.
As a family we love the beach and sport (I spent my working life as a
PE and Science teacher) and my Boys tolerate my love for my “hobby”
 that has become more of an obsession.
I have always had an interest in art, craft and photography, and made my
first “scrapbook” for my Mum when my first was born, 15 years ago!
Back then I was a happy stamper making cards and invitations,
 there was very little scrapbook products around then so I had to
make do with card stock and the stamps I had in my stash!
I look back now and marvel at how far the industry has come,
and how my addiction for all things papercraft related has grown!
I now absolutely love getting down and dirty with paint and ink,
and I guess my pages reflect that. Not one of my pages  is
complete without chipboard, I love customizing it to suit the project I am doing.
I try to inspire on my blog and love sharing with others what I have
learnt along the way. Do stop by if you have a spare second and say hello!
I thank the Scrapology girls for choosing my “Happiness” page
for this months scraplift challenge and look forward to seeing all the entries!

We drew our sketch as always
We are challenging you to use chipboard somewhere on your layout (if you don't have any use something else to represent a piece of chipboard), this could be the swirl or your lettering. Together with the sketch and Michelle's layout as a guide, we look forward to seeing what you create.

Here are the layouts created by our design team to give you some extra inspiration.
