Yes, the title is true. This week’s reveal is my final reveal for the ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday design team. After 2 amazing years of hard work and dedication heading up the design team (creating our sketches, colour challenges, and keeping us in check), and even longer as “THE”designer at ScrapMuch?, Laura is taking a well earned semi-retirement. I feel very fortunate to have been with the team since the very beginning. I’ll never forget the feeling I had when I read the email that I was a successful applicant to the team. It’s been a great ride. I owe a lot to Laura and to ScrapMuch? for helping me to find my scrappy “voice”, and inspiring me to expand my creativity. For many years my true passion was making mini albums and I used to find sketches nice, but limiting. Now I can fearlessly tackle a sketch, make it my own (if needed), and take creative license if the mood hits. Thank you Laura and ScrapMuch? for the amazing ride, for believing that my creations could be used as inspiration for others, and for giving me the inspiration to return to 12×12 scrapping. I also want to thank my fellow team members who have inspired me, supported me and pushed me to “up my scrappy game”. I hope to keep in touch in the blogosphere or other social media.
When I created this layout I had no idea it would be my last for the team. It was only with one person in mind, who was just celebrated a week ago for Mother’s Day, and will be celebrated again next week for her birthday. I’d like to think she’s tickled pink about this page (pun intended!). So here is this week’s reveal:
I built this page with a 6×6 paper pad (really making an effort to use these since I can’t stop buying them), some washi tape (see same reason as 6×6 pad), more minc words and shapes, and my fav flourish stamps to form part of the backgound.
Here is the sketch we had to work with this week:
So what does this all mean? I don’t fully know. ScrapMuch? will continue to be an awesome mobile store and host crops and retreats through the year. I will continue to scrapbook, though I may try to work more on pocket pages since they’ve been quite back-burnered since I started with the sketch team. I’ll still blog but it won’t be as regular as I have been. And who knows what the future holds!
What I do know is this is your last chance to join in on the Sketch-y Friday challenges for a chance to win an awesome ScrapMuch? prize as we know it!
Here is a run down of our Sketch-y Friday rules. Just link up your creations in our sidebar to be entered into a random draw for our monthly prize. You have until May 29th, at midnight to participate in any of this month’s sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date! You may take some artistic license with your adaptation of the sketches, however if you choose to use a double page sketch for a single page layout you may only enter once per sketch, not once per side.
If you are playing along with more than one challenge you will need to link each of them up via a separate blog post for the link up tool to work. (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees.) Good luck, we cannot wait to see what you create!
Thank you Laura, so proud to call you a friend.
