"Hi!   My name is Ali Parris & I live in the UK with my long suffering husband 
(29 years to date!) & our dog Basil. We are lucky enough to have 2 beautiful daughters
 & their chaps plus a grand-daughter & grandson, who are the light of our lives.

I started scrapbooking when my grand-daughter was born 5 years ago.
 I had dabbled in card making but never felt the passion that I have for scrapping!

I played in blog land for a while & joined the Frosted Designs Design Team.
As my confidence grew & I began to develop my style I decided to take the plunge
 & submit a layout to Scrap365 magazine. I was beyond thrilled when it was accepted! 

That was in March 2013 & since then my scrapping life has taken a huge change in direction!
  I was asked to join the Design Team for the magazine & after submitting my first article
 was asked if I would consider becoming the Editor!  As they say, the rest is history!! 
 I now have my dream job - hard work but oh so rewarding!

I am thrilled to have been invited to Guest Judge this month at SATW!

Please welcome Ali to her judging role with us this month & let the
Scrap 365 team know how much you value their incredible inspiration!

See you all again soon for Guest Team FIVE in a few days...
