Sketch-y Friday and a Guest Designer

Hello and happy Friday!

As always, Friday means we have a new sketch for you to play with!  Plus, this week we have  a special treat, it is Guest Designer week here on the ScrapMuch? blog!

Here is our sketch.....

This month Sandy is joining us as our Guest Designer. 

I will let Sandy tell you a little bit about herself......

"I have been scrapbooking in various degrees since I was a young teen. I attended the first retreat hosted by the ladies of Scrapmuch?, 3 years ago and I am hooked! I work at a very technical job, so this allows me to express my creative side. I love to take photos of my family, and so I have a tonne of photos to scrap. My two adorable grandsons are very easy to photograph and scrap. I regularly attend the Scrapmuch? crops with my family and friends.

My layout is of my Mom’s 85 birthday party! We always have a birthday party for my Mom every year.  30 were in attendance this year. My Mom attends all the crops and retreats with my sister, Brenda & myself. Along with our daughters and Brenda's granddaughter.
For my layout I used Simple Stories/Sweet Girl by Lori Whitlock & Vintage Bliss. The butterfly banner is American Crafts/Dear Lizzy - Flutterbys. Other embellies – October Afternoon, My Mind’s Eye & Studio Calico. Twine – Montanna Misfits, Prima. Lettering – Thickers, Tiny Type by Cosmo Cricket."
You can find Sandy's blog here.  Now let's have a look at her sweet creation...

 We love that sweet butterfly banner and the washi tape!  Thank you Sandy, we very much appreciate you joining us this month and sharing your creativity with us!  

Now it's your turn, friends!  Play along and share it with us!

Here is a run down of the rules.  We are offering a little prize to one lucky scrapper that participates in at least 2 of this month's 4 sketches.  Just link up your creations at the bottom of each Sketch-y Friday post, all qualifying scrappers will be entered into a random draw for a prize.  Only one entry per sketch please.  You have until Wednesday September 4th at midnight to participate in any of August's sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date!  But remember, you must play along with 2 different sketches for a chance to win!  (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees. )

Also, we are launching something new!  Would you like to be one of our sketch layout designers?  Each month we are going to offer one lucky participant the opportunity to create the reveal sample for one of our sketches!  So if you are interested in being considered, play along with at least two sketches and while you are linking up your creations add "GDT" after your name.  The only stipulation is that you must have a blog.

Now getting creating!   And thanks for visiting!
