Melinda Spinks is such an amazing talent! I am always so excited about what she creates and a little jealous about how her brain works - LOL. I tease her that I am going to go to Australia just so I can rub her belly to see if some of her talent will wear off on me :) Here is a little bit about her, "I live on a farm with my husband The Farmer and my two precious wee-ones Georgia (10) and Benjamin (4). My world revolves around my family, the farm, my garden, spending time in my kitchen and my new hobby in the paper-world. I started scrapping in February last year after a friend gave me a magazine and I thought 'gee, I would love to try that'. It has been a whirl-wind 16 months and I'm loving this new addition to my life, especially the amazing people I have met along the way. Liz just happens to be one of those incredible people!"
"When I received the sketch I had immediate plans... then I changed my mind, again and again! The sketch was open to so many possibilities that I didn't know which direction I would take until I stumbled across this photo of my daughter and I knew it would be perfect, especially with the MLSB papers I'd recently acquired. Although it was a three pic sketch, I decided that the photo lent itself to being sectioned off which would still create the same effect. I didn't stray too much from the original design as it was perfectly balanced and I didn't want to detract from what Liz's original intentions were. Thank you Liz for entrusting me with one of your amazing designs!"

Pearl Liu is treating us to another week of her wonderful creations and I am so excited about what she did with my sketch this week. She said, "I kept as close to the sketch as possible as was inspired to try cutting up a circular die cut, using the sketch as a guide. I've definitely tried out a lot of techniques in my scrappy adventures but , this is probably the first time I'm doing something like that. I used a sequence of my DD & friends on their first time out kite flying together at a rather iconic landmark in our city. We have such a panaromic view of our new city skyline here."

Marisol Valencia has been working with my sketches for a while and she always has such a lovely interpretation to share. Here is what she had to say about working with the sketch, "When I received Liz's sketch, I noticed the butterflies immediately. I love butterflies! I decided on some family photos, as my family is the protagonist in the better part of my scrapbooking projects. My sons and my husband are the source of my inspiration. Without realizing, I chose these lovely patterned papers from Making Memories and Adornit. The circles that Liz had drawn in her project I made by cutting, distressing and sewing the paper again. I love the effect of seams on the paper...and in the photos! The page is very true to Liz's sketch (since as soon as I saw it I thought it was precious) although I have added some other elements along side of the big butterfly. I cannot avoide it! I'm partial to adorning my pages!"
