Sketches! Guest Designer: Bethany Stouvenel

I am pleased to announce that our First Sketches! Guest Designer is:



Bethany Stouvenel



Bethany was the first person to sign up for the Sketches! Email Subscription and has linked several of her layouts in the comment section since I started the Sketches! Blog back in June 2007. She is very talented and I am constantly in awe of her amazing pages and projects she makes. I am very grateful for the friendship I have with Bethany and the support she continually gives me on my Sketches! Journey. With that, I have chosen her to be our first Sketches! Guest Designer.
Let's all get to know Bethany! Here is what she had to say:

My name Is Bethany Stouvenel. I have a wonderful husband Trent & 3 great kids, 2 boys, James (12) & Logan (almost 2) & my bebe girl Kenzie (4 months).I have been scrapping for a little over 2 years. My favorite scrappy subjects are definitely my kiddos! Having 3 kids makes it somewhat challenging to find time to scrap but gives me lots of opportunity to take tons of pictures to scrap!


I love patterned paper!! and chipboard alphas! I am not sure I have a favorite manufacturer, there are so many out there & so much yummy new stuff being released! I am having a Scenic Route obsession lately. But, who knows what it will be tomorrow? :) Oh & I love me some Stickles!! love em! If you dont have any yet you really NEED to get some! I use them on almost every layout I do, even my boy layouts :)


My favorite online scrappy hangout is Scrap Freak. They are a wonderful group of ladies, in fact that is where I met Tamara! I spend more time there than I would care to admit LOL but it is a wonderful website and, what can I say? I love it there :) it helps keeps me sane.


My blog addy is www.jamesandlogansmom.blogspot.com (I started it before my little girly was born, oopsie). I try to blog often but, never as much as I should.


I am totally excited & honored that Tam asked me to be the first Guest Designer on her Sketch blog!! The sketches that she creates are so inspiring & I am so thrilled to be showcased on this wonderful blog!! Thank you Tamara {{{hugs}}}





Here is the Sketch that Bethany has chosen to use. It was Sketch #35.





And here is Bethany's take on that sketch.
