This month we welcome to the Design Team RACHAEL DONEY. Rach hails from Esperance where she has lived for the past 23 years. 16 years ago settled down and married the love of her life, together they are raising 4 gorgeous children,  a daughter and 3 sons. Rach manages the local school canteen to support her scrapping obsession!

Rach began scrapping whilst pregnant with her youngest son. Because we do not have a bricks and mortar store in Esperance, and there wasn't a scrapping group formed then either, Rach says she basically taught herself to scrap which was very simplistic, imagine 4 x 6 photos, rounded corners, plain matting on patterned paper.  But that all changed when Marg (who was then my Enjo Manager) invited her to a camp in Bruce Rock with 100 strangers! She went along and learned so much. Rach still continues to go to the Scrap Camps being held in Bruce Rock, once or twice  a year just to learn new ideas and techniques and meet new people.

Rach doesn't consider her scrapping to be of any particular style, saying it changes constantly.  She likes to keep her layouts simple, and tries to do her simple very well.  Rach says she is a typical Capricorn, and likes to keep all her stuff for a rainy day! But she says she loves patterned papers - and has way too many, but always never has the one that she needs!

Rach says she loves a challenge, especially as then she doesn't have to think about where to start!

We look forward to seeing more of Rach's wonderful work gracing our newsletters!
