Sketch #0033 and a Special Assignment

WOW! It's the end of another productive and fun month- and Spring is here in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.... we are blessed! Sure hope nice weather has found you, too! I know Ann and her family have had snow in Calgary, Alberta! Yikes!  

Today I bring to you a sketch from April Guest Sketch Artist and CY Founder, Noella Arsenault! In addition, to celebrate the upcoming May 1st  National Scrapbooking Day,  I have a special treat for you in the form of 2 cards created by one of our Design Team Members, using Noella's recently featured card sketch!

Here we go! Welcome to S:CY everyone!

First, lets share a very versatile layout Sketch.

This one features some circular  elements and a strong linear point of anchor. It's very pleasing to the eye as you will see from our Designers' interpretations.


Sketch #0033

Sketch is from the CY archives, and was created by our April 2010 Guest Sketch Artist & founder of the original "Creatively Yours" blog site, Noella Arsenault


An Easter layout created by S:CY Design Team Member Misty Miller.
Misty chose to turn the sketch 1/4 turn to the right and her layout boasts  beautifully positioned Easter eggs, a CUTE bunny, and pastel colours that say "welcome spring!"
Another great job Misty!

"The Conversation"

With crisp colours and precious pics, mom of 2 and  S:CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko  captured an everyday moment between her two boys as they discussed the topic of  Pokemon. The crisp, vibrant  colours and use of the circular elements on the patterned papers draws us in & works so well here! Bravo Ann!

A special "Thank You" to our Designers today: Ann and Misty.

As Team Leader, it is always my pleasure to  be able to post your work here at S:CY.


Here is a little treat for you. In honour of the special scrappy day coming on Saturday, May 1st, I thought it'd be fun to feature a special assignment! S:CY Designer Terri-Ann Morris graciously agreed to provide us with 2 cards for use with one of Noella's most beautiful archived Card Sketches.
