Sketch N Scrap Design Team Announcement

I am so thrilled to announce that I am a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Blog Team  I love sketches and there are two layout and two card sketches every month on SNS!! 

I hope you all join me starting in July at http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.com/


Good evening!  I am thrilled to say we have chosen our newest design team members for the Summer-Winter 2017 term!  Thank you to all who applied, it was a very hard decision to just pick a few.  We had so many very talented people apply it made the decision a very hard one!  So without further ado here is our Summer/Winter 2017 Blog Design team:
 
 
My name is Christine (Chris) and I am recently retired. I have been married to my wonderful husband since June 1988 and between us we have a blended family of four children and five grandchildren.  I have been scrapping for almost 17 years and I have the stash to prove it!  My scrappy style has changed quite a bit over the years - I started with 8 1/2" x 11" single pages, moved to 12" x 12" double pages and now I mostly scrap 12" x 12" single pages.  I am super excited to be a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Design Team.  I love sketches and look forward to sharing my layouts and cards with everyone.  You can find me at  My Blog or on Instagram @chriscassidy84.

Sketches in Thyme Sketch #279

Today is my reveal of the fantastic sketch by Bev Code.  These photos were taken several years ago when Emma and Paige would come to our house and go upstairs and dig stuff out of the closet and play dress up. This day they were playing "office" and they were so serious about their jobs.


 
I used the October 2016 Hip Kit Club Main Kit and Embellishment Kits for my layout.

Use Your Stuff Challenge #265 - Bohemian Rhapsody

This one had me a little stumped what I wanted to create but I went with Crate Paper Cook Kid papers and embellishments, a Donna Downey stencil, Art Basics Light Paste and three different Heidi Swappe Color Shine mists.  The photos are Cole and Carter each enjoying a yummy donut.

Use Your Stuff - May 8th

I am up on the Use Your Stuff Blog today.  The challenge is to use feathers.  I used a stencil and light paste to create feathers and then used water colors to paint them.  This was way out of my comfort zone but I like how they turned out.  I used Fancy Pants Attwell on my page.

Happy Day after iNSD

Wow - there was so much fun going on yesterday for Inter-National Scrapbook Day.  I along with 9 other Cherries were hostesses on A Cherry on Top.  We had so much fun providing challenges, games and lots of chatting.  Most of the challenges are due 5/12 or 5/13 so there is still time to participate and win sprinkles (points) to use in the ACOT Store.  I hosted a Dinner Menu Challenge (details on the ACOT site) and this was my sample.
