Our April Guest Designers!

Posted in CY Design Team, Welcome! at 10:37 pm by alimom4

Happy April Everyone!

First off… A HUGE “Thanks” to March Guest Designers Rowee Ortile and Karen Aldrin! You did a great job, and we hope to see you here  at CY often. We value your input and creativity! Keep up the GREAT work gals!

Guess what? We’re taking a little break from Card Sketch #24 today to make an extra special announcement!

It  may be April Fool’s Day, but it’s no joke!

Noella and I are as proud as can be to announce that we have THREE Guest Designers joining the Creatively Yours Team for the month of April. Yes: THREE!!!

Sisters Deanne, Carla and Susan from the “Sisterhood of Scrap”  Blog site have graciously accepted the invitation that we extended to become a part of our CY-DT for the coming month.  Please join us in welcoming them in the warmest possible way!

You’ll love “the Sisters’ ” friendliness, creativity and enthusiasm. Their scrappin’ styles are very diverse- from doodles to satin bows to clean and classic lines, Deanne, Carla and Susan can do it all— with style! They can sketch, too!

Since we all learn from one another in the scrappin’ world, April will see us privileged to enjoy three times the ideas and exchange three times the smiles.

“The  Sisters” are also “Maritimers,”  and in the best tradition of Atlantic Canada,  it is extra special having them here to share their creative talents with us! (As you know, being from NB and NS, Noella and I are proud Maritimers too!)

Over the next few days, we will share more information about these very special Guest Designers. No rush- we have all month to get to know one another better. Please stay tuned to see what Deanne, Carla and Susan and our fabulous CY-DT will be sharing with us  in April. It’s going to be a GREAT month!

Welcome Deanne Burton, Carla Robinson and  Susan Coish we’re so happy you’re here with us!

Welcome to my sketches blog.. I have created this blog to provide a place where I can keep my sketches and hopefully inspire people to use them.  I know that when my creative mojo is at a low, I need to create from a sketch to give me a basic design idea.  My hope is to motivate you to get those creative juices flowing.

You are free to use my sketches at any time!  I would however love that you mention my name and a link to my blog.

Also, what is a sketch without a sample interpretation you ask??  Well, I will also be seeking out designers to create such examples from my sketches..If this peeks your interest..please email me at to have your interpretation featured on this blog!  How fun is that?
