Sketch #58... A Gem from Noella!

Hi Everyone! Here we are almost at the END of August.... GOODNESS!!!! I just took one of my little boys-- Daniel, age 9-- to Pony Camp for a 1/2 day. His big sister is one of the junior leaders... They're going to have fun! He's in a group with a couple of other little fellas interested in horses and riding. Of course the highlight of the morning will be a riding lesson with our coach! It's raining but the rest of the week is going to be nice. I can almost hear the ponies trotting in the sunshine...!

On to our beautiful Sketch for this week.

Noella Arsenault, whose sketches never disappoint, has created a beautiful Layout "guide" for us here today.
Thanks Noella!
Sketch #58

Sketch #58 created by CY's founder and first-ever Sketch Artist: Noella Arsenault!

#1~ CY-Design Team Member Rita Barakat is fresh from a road trip and musical tour with a group of young singers from her church! She sent us this LO showing the value of a loving caregiver.

Thanks Rita! ... (Welcome home!) The mauve, white and shades of purple are gorgeous on this layout! And... That font ROCKS!

#2~ CY- Design Team Member and teacher Misty Miller has gone back to school, but it hasn't deterred her from creating gems like this one!

have beautiful handwriting, BTW!

It's a real "time-capsule" layout! I love taking the yearly back-to-school photos of my kiddos...Thank You Misty: This is a great reminder to have batteries in the camera!! ;) You did a great job!

#3~ CY-Design Team Member Andi Dickson has created a layout that captures her son's expressions perfectly! A "Superstar" indeed!

Have to tell you that I just love the striped/dotted effect of that patterned paper Andi! Great stuff! How did you know that I also love rick-rack and stars!??

#4~ CY-Design Team Member Ann Seleshanko has created a page showcasing a hike her son took.

Ann, I enjoyed seeing how you were also able to showcase several popular motifs in your work: a butterfly, the trees & the tiny bird!

And hey! I see STRIPES! Love 'em! ;)

#5~ CY-Design Team Member Robin Gibson created a fun LO about one of her critters!

As an animal-lover, and Mommy to 4 fur-babies, I can totally relate to this!

GREAT job Robin!
