Sketch One - Kim Archer

After a couple of weeks of waiting here it finally is, the very first Sketches Oz Sketch, our guest artist is none other than the immensely talented and totally wonderful Kim Archer! I contacted Kim on the day of the first blog post and by bedtime that night she had provided us with the first sketch and accompanying inspiration layout! Thankyou Kim
Here is what Kim had to tell us about herself and Sketches Oz:
I live in Newcastle with my hubby Ken and our three kids,
Brandt, Jamison and Capri. I started scrapbooking in January 2003 after picking
up a scrapbooking magazine. In those days I had NO idea what I was doing and
pretty much just accumulated stuff as I didn't really know what to do with it
all. Eventually I did make my first page..and then I just kept on making

I have been fortunate enough to have had a lot of
opportunities within the scrapbook industry over the past few years and have
been able to travel around teaching at many retreats, conventions and stores.
Lots of fun!

What a great idea this new sketch site is!!! I am
thrilled to have been asked to join in for the first sketch challenge and I look
forward to seeing the site evolve as it gets going and everyone joins in:)
So without further ado, here are the inspiration LO's from Kim's sketch!
