reader features!

It's time to show off some reader features!

First up, Katy's card:

Our single page feature is Clara. I love that she converted the sketch to 8.5x11 size!

and you guys must have been loving the single page sketch more than usual this month because we've had a lot more single page entries than anything so far! Because of that, I'm featuring two single pages this week. Here's one by Elaine:

If you haven't entered one of our sketch challenges yet, you have six more days to do so! The countdown is on. At the end of the month, we'll choose one winner from each sketch to be a guest designer with us in November. Good luck!

September guest designer: Donna!

Please welcome Donna as our double page guest designer this month!

I am a wife, mother of five and nine grandchildren, and an avid scrapbooker.  I've always been interested in art since childhood, always was doing something creative, which eventually led me to scrapbooking. After our Disney vacation in 2002 I decided instead of putting our pictures in an album and scrapbooking was the way to go. Ever since then, I've been in love with the craft. I have been on various design teams throughout the years and currently on Club Scrap Artist Team.

Here is our September double page sketch:

and here is Donna's page:

Thanks so much for joining us this month, Donna!

If you'd like to be considered for a guest designer spot in the future, all you have to do is upload a card or layout to one of our sketch challenges! One winner is chosen from each sketch to be a guest designer. Have fun!
