Dec 7th Sketch and new DT members

Woohoo, it's Friday and we are loving that! Time for Reveal Day and also, the opportunity to introduce  3 new Layout Sketch Designers. We know that this is a busy time of year for most everyone but we hope that you will have the opportunity to play along. This fortnights sketch was designed
by our own Sandi Clarkson. We hope you like it! 

Now, we'd like to take a moment to get you better acquainted with these awesome new ladies! We are so excited to have them as part of our team! 

"Hi, I'm Patricia from Amsterdam, Holland. 57, single mum, but son all grown up now. I'm a full-time school manager in a big primaire school. Love to scrapbook because it's so good to get creative after a long day of talking and managing. The paper, the flowers, stamps, paint, combined with pictures of family, friends, nature, my cats, holidays, it's simply makes me happy. I love using sketches to make something different every time. Besides sb, I also love playing bridge, taking pictures, walking in woods,   have good meals with my son  or with friends, love classical music and CSI Miami, reading a good thriller and have a good laugh. Love challenge blogs and very thrilled and happy to be on the SOUS team."

"Hi, everyone I'm Laura. I live in a small town in beautiful south-western Ontario, Canada. I am a stay at home mom to 2 fantastic and energetic little boys - Cody is 12 and Ty will be 11 in a couple of weeks. They are 13 months apart and they keep me hopping! I am always busy with something with them!! I am happily married for 13 years to my best friend and the most patient and handsome man on earth, Jon. He keeps me grounded, is always there for me and NEVER asks how much I spent on scrappy stuff! I started scrapping years ago when my sister took me to a Creative Memories beginner class and although I really enjoyed it, I just wasn't a Creative Memories scrapper and soon struck out on my own. I found a few very helpful and friendly sites on the web and have been trying new things and learning ever since. I think my style is eclectic. Sometimes I like a very clean and simple layout, sometimes my layouts are more layered and sometimes I ink, tear, layer and distress my projects! My family is the focus of my life, my inspiration, and my motivation to scrapbook." 

"Hi, ladies. I am Caroleanne. I am a SAHM who just loves all things scrapbooking. I have been scrapping for about 6-7 years now and cannot seem to stop! I mainly scrap my husband-Phillip, my daughter -Jessie and Millie the dog, the intention being that these are all memories I am saving and collecting for Jessie and her children and children's children! I love taking photos and scrapping them in the best way ever to remember those special moments in life. I have also been guilty of getting Jess to wear a particular color scheme as I always have a scrapbook page going in my head! I have more than one album on the go at once, so that I can catch up on the here and now, and the photos of the past that just got shoved in a box and hidden away in a drawer. I love all things girly and flowery, so my pages always contain lots of pretty things. I would say that my style is quite clean and classic, girly and pretty. I also scrap practically every day, and always have a photo or moment in mind for my next layout. Scrapping feeds the creative side of me and it is something I truly love to do. it's also great to get to know lots of other like-minded ladies in the scrapping world - so it's great to meet you and I look forward to getting to know you guys more."


Alrighty, time to share what the DT has done with today's sketch. It is always so amazing to see what other people do with a sketch that we create and this is no exception!
