Sketch #31

Hello everyone! Welcome to another fun Friday of sharing at Sketches: Creatively Yours!

Have you made time to scrap this past week? Remember how GREAT you feel when you scrap?

I'd like to offer Sketch #31 as inspiration if you're looking for a starting point!
Ahhh, let's sweeten the pot!
Everyone who enters a LO using this sketch and posts a link to it in the Comments section will have their name entered into a RAK from Yours Truly, mailed right to your door!!
Go, go, go!!!
RAK winner to be drawn by one of my kiddos next Thursday, Jan 14th!!

Sketch #31
Sketch created by Sketch Artist and Team Leader Ali MacDonald

A Layout by S:CY Designer Helen Hollinger
"The Color Purple"

The purple in this gorgeous layout makes me smile. How about you?

A Layout by S:CY Designer Victoria Warren-Mears

Victoria notes that these eye-catching photos were taken in LaPush WA at the Quileute Reserve (yes, of Twilight fame).

A Layout by S:CY Designer Pam Sandy

"New Wheels"

Pam chose rich colours & subtle patterns on her LO to showcase her two darling grandkids on their new bikes!

A Layout by S:CY Designer Jennifer Cassista

"Some Day '05"

Jennifer distressed her papers & embellies for this LO about Ryan and that totally awesome sports-car!! ("Me want one too!!!" Ahh, maybe SOMEDAY!! We can dream Ryan!)

Layout created by S:CY Designer Heather Redmore


Heather told me that she rotated the sketch and used the paper to represent some elements (ie~ the scrolls) in the sketch. She also added a button sun!

You all make me so proud, Heather, Jenn, Victoria, Helen and Pam! I have known a couple of you for years, and some of you are new friends, but please know how much I respect and value the work you are all doing here at Skethces; Creatively Yours.

This goes for every member of the 14-scrapper Design Team we have here at S:CY! I could not ask for a better Team! Bravo!!

Remember... If you try our sketch, I have a RAK being drawn among participants for Jan 14th at noon! One of my kids is off school that day and will draw a name!

On January 15th, I ALSO have a fabulous friend & Guest Sketch Artist to introduce. I can't wait to share the first of TWO creative sketches that she has done especially for S:CY!!
