And our final team member....for now.....

Let me introduce, Graphic 45 fan, it's the talented Elaine Mellor....

Elaine was worried she had missed the DT call, but I really loved her work, so definitely wanted her as part of the team.


Lets have a see how Elaine answered a few little questions:


My name is Elaine Mellor and recently turned 40 ! 

Have been crafting for just over 10 years, I've spent 21 years in my current job but only 5 weeks left until my redundancy which I'm embracing with open arms, this will give me loads of free time for craft and to retrain as a teaching assistant. 

I got into crafting after I saw a simple handmade card and thought what a great hobby..... I've never looked back since it's become a passion bordering on obsession lol. I love to do a variety of different things including card making,  altered art, scrapbooks and tags. I adore paper and have collected far too much but I can't stop buying lol.

 The most rewarding thing for me is the wonderful friends I have met along the way and also how it can de-stress you after a hard day. 

I have sold my crafty makes and donated money in the past to charity's that are close to my own heart. I do tend to give a lot away though or hoard them in my craft room.
 
A craft tool I could not do without is my 12x12 X cut guillotine, I've had the same one for about 8 years huge value for money. 

Thank you for joining me Elaine,.....and you are photogenic!  It's a good photo :)
