Original Sketch Challenge ~ Debbie Burns GD

So sad to say, but this is our last sketch for the month of January.. but I'm sure you are going to love it as much as we did.. It was so much fun to use and all of our ladies on the design team did an amazing job with it as usual and its such a joy to see how all the layouts are still so different from each other...
so, here is the sketch that Nanné created for you to have fun with:

We have a guest designer this month and you all might remember her cause she used to be of our very own design team members..
Please welcome Debbie Burns:

Hi, my name is Debbie Burns and I'm thrilled to be a guest designer for SOUS.  I was on the DT for SOUS in 2010 and loved it and was excited when Sandi asked me to be a guest designer!  I'm a Maryland girl.  I have lived here my whole life. I  have two grown children ages 21 and 24 and one precious, loyal dog!  My daughter just moved out a week ago and I am still adjusting to it. One down, one to go!  Besides scrapbooking I love to garden.  In the spring and summer I divide my time between my scrapbook room and flowers gardens!

I started scrapbooking in 1999 after receiving an album "All About Me" as a birthday gift from my family.  I took a beginners class by Creative Memories and was hooked.  I'm amazed at how my much my style has changed over the years.  I love to work with a mix of pattern papers and always try to add special little details to my layouts. A must have for me is my ink pads!  It's like the icing on the cake!  I also love having a good sketch as the starting point for my layout.
