Sketch Two - Chris Millar

This week we are excited to welcome our wonderful Guest Artist, Chris Millar. Hope that you all enjoy this one, I know it is one we have enjoyed working with because Chris rocks layouts with circles!

Chris lives with her husband and two daughters in Brisbane and works part time in the family business. Chris has been scrapping for a little over 4 years and loves everything about it, including meeting new friends.

One of Chris' great loves is using her talent to make gifts for family and friends. From a young age she kept journals and had a love for photography. She now uses these same skills to enhance her scrapbooking pages and combines them with her love for paper and colour to create memories for her albums.

Chris is currently on the Junkitz international design team, a designer for Aussie ScrapSource and has recently made it through to the top 10 of the Making Memories Idol Competition. Chris has been published in all the Australian scrapbooking magazines as well as Paper Craft and Stamping magazines. She has also been published in the Becky Higgins Sketch book No.2 and Scrapbooking for Beginners No.2. She also designs kits and teaches online classes for The Scrapbook Outlet NZ.

I hope that you enjoy this weeks inspiration layouts from Chris and our design team!
