Sunday Sketch and Guest Designers

Thought I might put together something easy this week since folks are really busy with the holidays.  You should be able to whip up a layout in a jiff and still have time to make cookies!  This is also the last week of the 2010 Guest Designers and I am so thankful for all of their wonderful creations each and every week all the way back to March.  Can you believe it?  I am not yet sure what I am going to do for 2011, but the plan is to continue to have a sketch every Sunday and some examples.  I'll keep you posted about what my thoughts are for 2011.
Sandi Clarkson is our featured designer this week and she actually has the honor of wrapping up the 2010 Guest Designers.  I am always so appreciate of her style and the details she adds to her work.  Here is a little bit about her, "Hello, everyone. I was so excited and honored to be asked to guest design for My Little Sketch Blook. I have adored Liz's sketch work for a long time now and she is always right on track! I'm married to a wonderful guy named Dan and we live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area. We have 3 grown daughters, 3 BILs and 14 wonderful grandkids! Yes, fourteen .. and counting! I work as an Audiologist in the medical field by day and scrapbook by night. My SIL Susanna introduced me to this hobby about 5 years ago and I fell in love! It is the creative outlet that I need at the end of the day to help me unwind and relax."
Here is what Sandi had to say about working with the sketch, "I loved the simplicity of  this sketch!  My guest design spot came at a busy time of year and Liz's well-planned sketch relieved my anxiety of not getting something done for her in time. I did choose to do one large photo instead of the 2 vertical photos because I had this awesome new photo of my granddaughter playing in the water from this past summer that I really wanted to scrap.  I also added a few more flowers around the photo but eliminated the one by the title because of the bold images on my patterned paper. Lastly, instead of the narrow strip across the center, I used a Dusty Attic piece that I had been hoarding for awhile.  This is one great sketch and I plan to use it again soon! And thanks to Liz for having me!"

Barbara Lochridge created this totally stunning layout.  I am speechless with the perfection of her elements and the photos are wonderful.  Here are her thoughts on the sketch, "This was a really simple sketch! Easy to work with! I pretty much followed the design. I did add some border punching, a few more flowers, and some leaves. Nothing else was needed, as this was an awesome sketch! Thanks for having me as a guest DT member, and I hope everyone has a wonderful and joyous holiday!"

Monica Goswick is back again this week with a fun and quirky layout.  Here is what she had to say about working with the sketch, "I have not been scrapping that much the last few weeks and it really did challenge me to get my stuff out and create something.  As always though working with a sketch from Liz is easy.  I found that everything just came together.  I replaced the flowers with hearts and replaced the buttons with rhinestones, but kept the placement of papers and photos exactly the same.  I love the layering of different pattern papers and was able to use up some of my older doodlebug papers, they worked perfectly with the colors in my photos."
