Last but not Least! {I hope!!} Meet Jules & Helen!!

Hi everyone!  This is NOT the winner's post - SORRY!!  
We are still working on that - fast & furiously behind the scenes - the judging is on the go "full steam ahead!" but there are just so many beautiful pages & only 4 merit prizes so this really is very difficult & fun but not fun too!!

Time to meet our gorgeous Sketch Designer Julianne McKenna-de Lumen
who goes by the name of Jules to all who know & love her :)

1. How much time do you spend creating each week?

. I usually scrap everyday, although this depends on my schedule and family
plans. I usually scrap during the day on weekdays & at night on weekends. 

2. Do you have any other hobbies/obsessions as well as scrapbooking?

I enjoy reading (I'm an insatiable bookworm), travelling,
going to the gym, photography & collecting Blythe and Barbie dolls.
{ My husband reckons I enjoy collecting cats too! }

3. What can you tell us about where you live?

. Mount Barker is a quaint little town that is 'officially' considered one of the 
cloudiest & wettest places in Australia! In other words, I am living in 
the Australian version of Forks, Washington USA (but without the vampires!!).    

Remember you can read more about our designers under the 'Design Team' tab HERE.

And here I am!! You can find my blog HERE 
& I update it 5 or 6 times a week on average - I am rather a blogaholic - 
so pop over if you are ever short on inspiration & hopefully you'll find 'something' inspiring!!

1. How often do you scrapbook?

I usually end up scrapbooking about 3 or 4 times a week but when I do
I spend at least 4 hours standing at my scrapbooking counter!

2. How long does it take you to complete a scrapbook page?

It can take me anything from one to four hours to complete a layout.
Earlier this year I tried out a faster style of scrapbooking that was more
'freestyle' but while it was fun I've reverted back to creating pages that
I am proud of, although they do take a lot longer to create!

3. Do you listen to music while you scrap? 
If so name 3 songs on your media player.

Oh yes, I have to have music blaring whilst I am scrapping although my
kids make me turn it down as they do their homework at the same time!

I don't have a set taste in music - I just like what I like!!
Right now 3 songs I'm enjoying are:-

'It's time to Begin' by Imagine Dragons
'Suitcase for a Home' by The Parlotones
'Closer' by LocNville
{those last 2 are awesome South African bands!}

Well I hope you enjoyed finding out more about US & YES I will be back 
within the next few days to announce the winners of our last challenge!

Love the great DT and it's wonderful to hear how others scrap. Helen, for me 1 to 4 hours would be a really fast layout! Lol!
