Sketch #17-11

Hi Everyone!

I have an extra special treat for you today as we end the month of September and close out the current S:CY Design Team's term. Can you believe how quickly April to September has passed? Yikes! But, wow... here we are!

S:CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko has created one of her amazing layout sketches to highlight the end of September.

Ann's Sketch has both horizontal and assymetrical elements... plus some well placed circular embellishment areas for us to "play with!" Let's see it, shall we?

Sketch #17-11 created by
S:CY  Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko
We have eight Design Team Member creations based on Ann's sketch to share with you today. They are each unique and special... Enjoy them!

 "Missing your hugs" layout created by
S:CY Design Team Member Mandy Harrell

 "Wait for me!" layout created by
 S:CY Design Team Member Tammy Pyette

"Summer Fun!" layout created by
 S:CY Design Team Member Heather Getson

 "Why Scrapbook? Moments like These" by
 S:CY Senior Design Team Member Ann Seleshanko

"Des Jeans Bleus" layout created by
 S:CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald
 Journaling reads: Bryan started school in the year 2000 and he learned the "Jeans Bleus" song with Mme. J. O'T. He called her "Dam O'Toodle" **Grin** Here is some artwork he created that year. It was a self-portrait, and in it, he is wearing his "Blue Jeans" and telling about some of the things he liked at the time:  his teacher, the French book characters "Dina" and "Dinomir," and school. So cute! WTG, Bryan!
