Challenge #122 -- Layout Sketch

I know many of you have had a long weekend and are just starting to get back into the groove of a new work week. For us here in Germany, yesterday was no Holiday. And yet, I still find it hard to get back in the groove of things. And it is so hard knowing that so many are already out for the summer. School goes so long here. My kids do not get out until July 15th. I'm itching for a break with all the schedules and constantly on the go that comes with it. I'm hoping June speeds on by. I apologize to all those who want to savor June and have it last for a very long time. :)

This week we are featuring a Layout Sketch. I just love the layouts from the design team and their different takes on the sketch. Make sure you check them out and leave them some love.

This weeks Guest Designer is Kari Sweeney. And you can get to know Kari and see her Fabulous layout she made below.

If you decide to do the Sketch, we would love to take a peek. Just leave a link in the comment section where we can find yours.

Have a great week!












Guest Designer: Kari Sweeney

Hi, I am Kari Sweeney.

I am originally from a small suburb north of the Twin Cities. After spending a year abroad in Japan, I moved to Wisconsin for college and never left. I think it's safe to call me an official Cheesehead now. I live in NorthCentral Wisconsin with my one-of-a-kind husband Nick and our 3 rambunctious girls. Bennet, who is 4 1/2. We call her Matches. Scout, 2 1/2, better known as Gasoline and Eleanor (Ellie) who is becoming the Tinder at 4 months old. Besides scrapbooking I am a major movie and trivia buff.

I've been scrapbooking since 1995-96, back when the only options were construction paper and puffy paints. Man-have we come a long way or what? I consider myself a simple, non-technique scrapper. My favorite pages tend to have a clean, crisp look with white space. To me the photos and the story behind them are truly the reason I scrapbook. Capturing those everyday moments that at the time seem ordinary and mundane but years later will seem extraordinary. I usually focus a lot of energy on journaling and have been known to get on my soapbox about the importance of handwritten journaling on at least SOME of your pages :)
