Hi guys, my name is Stacey Apps, I live on the south coast of N.S.W in a small town by the sea.I am married to a great guy, who loves fishing as much as I love scrapping. I have 3 terrific children, Dylan(15),
Courtnie(11), and Hayley(3).They are the reason for scrapping. I have been scrapping now for about 10 years, it all started when I saw a friends album, and just having had my second child I thought this is how I want to showcase their lives.

As my husband often says, 'who would have thought that tearing some paper and sticking a photo on top could be such a big deal'.  MEN!!! Well doing just that has taken me to some lovely places, I've met some amazing people, and its opened a few doors. Just recently I started putting myself out there (with a gentle nudge from my best friend Karen Shady). I have joined some amazing sites, been published a few times and started my own blog http://www.seasidescrapper.blogspot.com.au/.

I am totally addicted to sketches, and when Creative Scrappers put out their call for a design team earlier this year, with a gentle nudge from that same friend, I applied, to my shock I was accepted. I still pinch myself everyday about it.
So when PURPLE PUMPKIN had their call out, that same friend (my god she is pushy) told me I should try out, and as i have a stash of some of their amazing products, I thought why not, and you guessed it, here I am. Now I have to pinch myself twice a day.
My style of scrapping is CLEAN & SIMPLE, I like clean straight lines, not over embellishing a page and occasionally I like to get a bit messy with some inking and painting.
I am so excited to be part of this team for the next 6 months and would like to thank Sam and Sandra for this amazing opportunity.
Here are a couple of my pages
Dont you just love their buttons, well thats it from me, TALK TO YOU SOON     STACEY:)
