Our first Sketch of 2012!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to S: CY and a whole new series of sketches for a new year-- 2012!! This month we also have Lois Sokolan from British Columbia Guest Designing with us, and so January promises to be a real treat for the eyes and a BIG boost for your sense of creativity.

The first Sketch of 2012 is below. Enjoy! What will YOU create with the sketch? Be sure to share a link with us in the Comments section! We'd love to see your work and the S:CY Team will visit and leave you some love.

Sketch #1-12  created by
 S: CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald 
 "Love" layout created by
S: CY January Guest Designer Lois Sokolan 

 Lois, who loves chipboard, told me that "all the swirly parts on the 'Love' layout are covered chipboard and sanded edges... what a job that was!"

"Papa a Paris" layout created by
 S:CY Design Team Member Maggi Harding

"It's a Girl" layout created by
 S: CY Design Team Member
Jennifer Cassista

Jennifer emailed a little note to me with this LO: "I never scrap pictures of me and I really never scrap pictures of me from work, but here goes-  LOL." 
"Gateway to Love" layout created by
 S: CY Design Team Member Cheryl Casas
Cheryl notes that "Seeing the curve on the sketch for the photo gave me the idea to use this gate.  It curves and hugs the photo for interest.  The flourish in the corner is a Prima resistant canvas, as well as the scalloped border.There are a couple of pieces of Prima packaging on this LO as well.  I used a Scraps of Darkness kit to create this page of my dh and I at our local animal park in November 2011."

"Hiking in BC, August 2011" layout created by
 S: CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko

"Brindle" layout created by
S: CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald
