Finally LOL. Sorry about the delay everyone, but half the scrapjacked team were in Sydney at the paper and craft festival lining up some more fabulos Aussie scrappers for you to jack!

So, on to this months wonderful Jack! Celeste is an amazingly talented scrapper who is part of the for keeps design team.

Here Celeste tells us a little about herself.

HI I am Celeste. I live in Buninyong, Victoria with my husband of 8yrs Rod; and my three daughters, Hallie, Jemma and Grace.

I started scrapbooking after my twin girls were born and made a decision to scrap only photos I had taken from that time on. I wasn't about to backtrack and redo all the birth photos of my first child! I have stuck to my guns and instead have proceeded to enure that my photos are better quality!

I love my digi SLR and love taking photos almost as much as scrapbooking!

I am not sure that I have a style. I will give anything a go..But I do like my pages to appear balanced.

I am not a huge fan of 'off the page', but will make something if it has a definitve purpose, or is for a special gift.

I occaisonally make cards and I always make a special card for the girls birthday.

I love a new product - like most scrappers I think!

I have my own scraproom, which I also share as a creative space with my daughters and the computer lives there too. Quite often you can fin every member of our family in that one room! I love the challenge scrapping brings and that my pages have a purpose, to keep my families memories forever.

At last count I had 18 albums for 4 years of scrapping - addicted much?I am honoured to be scrapjacked!

Thanks so much and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! '

And I am sure you will agree this LO is VERY jackable! We all had heaps of fun jacking this one :)

Because we were a little late his month, entries for this jack will close on Monday the 3rd of December at midnight!

And here are the jacks from the scrapjacked team!


I have used ALL gorgeous Bella! on this LO! The Bella! product is SO easy to use. LOVE the accents alphas, so funky, and so alterable.

Petrina has used some of the gorgeous Bella! papers and chipboard shapes.

Tammy J
Tammy has also used some of the fabulous accent alphas, and some yummy papers from the delightful life range!

Tammy T
Tammy has used some gorgeous Bella! product on her LO. She has used the accent alphas and the very cool chipboard alphas. She has also used a large flower, and some of the chipboard shapes, and the papers are also from the delightful life range.

Now dont forget to make sure you get a jack in for this month if you would like to be considered for the scrapjack tem. If you would like to be considered and have not yet emailed us, please let us know.

Winners from the Megan Stephenson jack will be announced tomorrow :)
