November 26

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

This is such a wonderful time of year! And we all have so much to be grateful for, a hobby that not only brings us joy in creating but also brings together a large community of friends. This site alone has brought together a kind and talented group of ladies that we all feel lucky to know, not only speaking of the designers but also the many of you that join us in our challenges! So don't forget in all the hustle of this week to take time to snap a few photos and possibly use them with this sketch! =)

We want to again thank Ness Waller for another original sketch! This is totally stunning and we have a feeling will be greatly liked by everyone! This sketch has such great potential to be turned into amazing pages and with that said...let's take a look at some...

Nov 12, Lisa Gregory, Guest Designer

We are well into the month of November and what could be better then some original sketches and a wonderfully talented Guest Designer?

Vanessa Waller of Crafty Ness has graciously designed some sketches that you will only find here at Stuck on U Sketches for the month of November. We thank her for her time and for sharing her unique and lovely sketches with us (and it just so happens that she is the DIL of our very own Annette! who knew! LOL!)

We hope that you are able to join us this week and please come back next time to see the cool and totally different sketch we have for you (just in time to scrap that memorable family photo from Thanksgiving dinner!) FYI ... Lisa McIntyre is off this week but will return for the next challenge.

We also have a Guest Designer this week, so scroll on down!

Please meet our very special Guest Designer, Lisa Gregory.  We are so honored to have her designing with us this week!

Here is a bit about Lisa in her own words:

I started my real interest in scrapboooking in 2005 when I was helping my son and his girlfriend (wife now) work on their senior project. A scrapbook of their lives. As soon as I hit the scrapbook isle at Michaels and saw all of the products related to scrapbooking, I was hooked. A crafter all of my life I think I have done everything. But paper was always an obession. And so was my photography. In discovering scrapbooking, I was able to blend  my scrapbooking and photography to create the 12 x 12 LO's I still create today. I love creating tutorials for flowers and techniques for scrapbooking and sharing what I learn with others.
I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida with my high school sweetheart..Who also happens to be my husband!! We have 2 children. Our son is married and lives a few miles away. Our daughter is attending Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary  Arts in Portland, Oregon. I am a registered nurse by profession. I am currently the design Team Coordinator for Swirlydoos and on the design team at Heartfelt Creations. I have been a long time fan of Stuck On U Sketches and was honored to be asked to be the Guest Designer this week. Thank you Nanne, Sandi and Leah for the opportunity. Love you girls!! 
Okay, that's it for today. We can't wait to see what you do with this fantastic sketch. Thanks again to Ness! Remember you will have 2 weeks to upload your project.
