Welcome to our June Guest Designer! PLUS Sketch #17-12

Hello everyone... It's June already!! 
Welcome to Sketches: Creatively Yours for another awesome month of  free sketches, free inspiration and lots of friendly faces!! We have a wonderful treat today for you, to start off the month. 
We're introducing a new Guest Designer... 
Today I'd like you to help me extend a warm hand of S: CY welcome to Georgana Hall, President of ADORNit!

S: CY June 2012 Guest Designer
 Georgana Hall 
Georgana was kind enough to send us a little bio so we can get to know her a bit better. 

Hi! I'm Georgana Hall. My favorite color is green and my fav holiday is Fourth of July. I love all things crafty such as scrapbooking, sewing, and papercrafting. I am a mom to three handsome boys which makes my house full of toy trucks, trains, and all other boy toys. Crafting helps me stay in touch with my girly side. :) I work at ADORNit as President of the company, did I mention I grew up in the crafting industry? My mom Carolee introduced me as a young child to creativity, tradeshows and teaching. I guess that’s why to some it’s no surprise I work full-time beside my mom and sisters and do a little bit of everything at the ADORNit headquarters. Enough about me, I'm so excited to guest blog and share some fun layouts with you. Thanks for having me!

Here are a couple of Georgana's fave layouts...

Georgana, Welcome to S:CY!! We can't wait to see what lovely things you'll be sharing with us this coming month!  
Readers, you can catch up with Georgana in several ways. Here are some links:

Thanks Ann, for another great sketch. I really LOVED using it, and, as I'm certain everyone can tell, so did the other gals! Thanks for the exceptional work, everyone.
An extra big welcome and "Thank You" to Georgana who will be with us all this month and will be sharing a couple of her creations using S: CY Sketches! 
Please do try this sketch. We'd love to see what you all create! A card? A LO? The cover of a mini- album? The title page for a 12x12 album?? What will YOU create with Sketch #16-12?
Here's  Mr. Linky... drop in the link to your creation for us so that we can all go visit, admire your work and leave you some luvs!!!!
