Welcome to our June 2010 Guest Designer: Virginia Wong!!

You know, as a scrapper, I have the BEST job in the world... not only memory keeping, but being able to "virtually" meet and get to know so many fantastic, genuinely GOOD people who also happen to value all aspects of what we term "Scrapbooking."

With that in mind, and sincerely thanking my right hand gal, Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko for connecting us, I want to extend the hand of welcome to Virginia Wong, our June Guest Designer here at S:CY!

June 2010 Guest Designer at S:CY ~ Virginia Wong

A warm S:CY Welcome, Virginia! Our entire Team is creatively "pumped" to have you along with us this month!

Virginia is a busy Mom to 2 girls, but sent us a Bio so we could get to know her a little better.


Hello! My name is Virginia Wong. I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Sketches: Creatively Yours Blog. Originally from Saskatchewan, I am proud to call Calgary my home. I am a full-time Mom and a part-time Information Technology consultant. Scrapbooking is my relaxation and passion - I need to scrapbook every day, be it reading a scrapbook magazine or creating a layout. Since I started scrapbooking, I notice the mundane and the spectacular and record my family`s lives - and that makes me very happy!

I love using and mixing vibrant, bold colours and patterns along with all those irresistible embellishments. My layouts often capture the everyday escapades of my two energetic and happy-go-lucky girls, Madison and Danielle. My second passion is photography and I continue to work on fine tuning my skills!

I adore sketches - they are the catalyst for all the ideas I try to incorporate into my layouts and cards. The sketches at Creatively Yours are so versatile and flexible. Thanks so much for having me at Creatively Yours!

I asked Virginia to share a favourite project with us, and she decided to send this Layout, which is entitled "Right Now."  I love the rich greens, the blush of the bold pinks and of course  the irresitible photographs!
