Introducing Shabby Chic Mandy

What a wonderfully successful start 'Lets Get Shabby' has encountered!
Thank-you all so much!
LGS started after a push and a shove from Julie - 'Mandy just do it'!!
So we put our heads together, the idea was born - and here we are!
Our search for Scrapping Artists who will present a range of Shabby Chic styles was just as important and now we have a wonderful team who are amazing inspiration!
Between now and towards the 25th June
we will be introducing the Shabby Chic Girls one at a time!
Soooooooooo with that said..........................
I'm Mandy, live on the small island Tasmania, off South-Eastern Australia
with my ever-patient husband
in a beautiful old house by the sea
and have three gorgeous daughters, Meaghan, Hannah and Paige.

My love for scrapbooking started about ten years ago and I almost cringe at my early attempts!! I've always been drawn to flea markets, antiques and well loved furniture right through to tiny collectables. I have been a ballet dancer since I can remember and it was a natural progression that the decoration on tutus would walk across the tulle onto my layouts! I love layering and fabric, paint and more layering with lace.
I want to be able to feel the textures and see shadows they cast.

And dont forget to keep checking back to see who is next! (grin)
