October's Guest Designer

We are restarting an older trend that we used to do a few years back, we have decided to bring back a Guest Designer every month here at Sketch N Scrap!  This is a great way for those who can't commit to a longer term to jump in and share their creativity for one short month!  Today I pleased to welcome back a familiar face and long time friend of Sketch N Scrap ......Amy Pitts!!!   Amy was one of the original DT members at Sketch N Scrap!

Please join me in welcoming Amy this month as she inspires us with her amazing creativity during BOTH our Fall Fun Crop AND here on the blog!!!   Here is a little more about Amy:
My name is Amy from DeKalb IL, my husband Kenny and I are the modern day Brady Bunch he had 2 sons and 1 daughter and I have 3 daughters so now we have 6 kids among us. Only my youngest lives with us all the rest of them are adults. Our two oldest children both have families of their own so we also have 5 grandchildren. Lots of great memories to scrapbook and lots of reasons to send out cards on a regular basis.  I have been artsy my whole life but in 1995 I discovered scrapbooking and soon after stamping. This year I also ventured into Pocket Scrapbooking, I have tried it several times in the past and didn't get very far but so far so good this time. It has been nice to scrapbook the every day in pockets and then add in some pages for my really special moments on a 12 x 12 or a mini album. It is fun to blend stamping, and scrapbooking together and I enjoy making ABC items (anything but a card),home decor items, and planners. Basically I just love papercrafts!!
To see more of Amy's beautiful projects stop by her blog: Paisley's Playhouse! 

Starting later this month we will be starting back our tradition of having a special sketch for our Guest Designer competition!  We will post our first sketch in our Fall Fun Crop soon and those who would like to possibly be chosen for our November Guest Designer spot will be able to complete their card or layout based on the sketch for a chance to win a spot as Guest Designer!! Look for more information soon on our Facebook page!
