Sketch 9 - Loretta Grayson

A huge big welcome to our new Sketches Oz Guest Artist Loretta Grayson! This is one of Rett's favourite sketches for scrapping events when she wants to use lots of photos. Look closely at her layout and you will see that the photo on the far right actually folds out concertina style to reveal more photos!
Gotta say sorry for being late again! I am now between home and finally managed to get some broadband love in Dubbo tonight after plenty of dial up issues! Should be back to regular programming for the next post! We will be announcing the winners for the last couple of sketches before we reveal our next Guest Artist (fingers crossed) so if you have completed a layout from Mel Diener's or Ngaire's sketches send them in to to win one of the fabulous prizes!

Rett is a Queenslander and mum to 3. She has been scrapbooking since 2003, designs for CherryArte and Scrapbook Creations and is also a two peas garden girl!

So, to get the creative juices flowing, here are this fortnight's inspiration layouts. We have an awesome CherryArte prize pack this fortnight chock full of papers, so get scrapping and send your layouts in to by Tuesday 4th September!

Sketch 8 - Ngaire Bartlam

This fortnight we are thrilled to welcome the very fabulous Ngaire Bartlam to Sketches Oz! (oh and please forgive me for running late, I am moving from QLD to SA and my house is being packed as I type!) So without further ado, here is Ngaire's sketch for us!

Ngaire started out scrapbooking in 1999 and has been widely published since, including two books, Lumpy Bumpy and It's All About You. She lives in Brisbane with her husband and two daughters, she is currently a designer for Tarisota Collections, our sponsor for this fortnight. Recently, Ngaire has invested herself in encouraging women to embrace their beauty. This fornight, we have taken on this theme for our design team layouts and encourage you to do the same! Hope that the sketch and layouts leave you feeling inspired to create a layout about something that is beautiful to you or about yourself!
