Saying Farewell to Sarah and Welcome to Leeann

Unfortunately Sarah Mulder has had to step down from the Sketches Oz Design Team and I want to take this opportunity to thank her for her hard work and support! We all wish you well with your new job and hope that you'll still come and visit :)

I would also like to give a warm welcome to our new Design Team member, Leeann Pearce!

Here is what Leeann had to tell us about herself -
My name is Leeann Pearce and I am married to Quentin and we have two beautiful Girls, Holly and Storm. We live in Kalgoorlie WA. I am A SAHM. I started scrapping in 2003 and did it alone for a lot of years until one day MY Husband Quentin brought home a pizza box full of goodies and a business card from a scrap shop here in WA. That was the end of scrapping all by myself I am now totally hooked on the scrapboxx.
My style is freestyle, I try to always think outside the square and create something a little different. Two things I totally Love are a white gel pen and Paint. I'm am very excited to be apart of Sketches Oz!

Have a squizz at Leeann's takes on the last two sketches from Loretta and Ngaire, boy does it rock!

See you on Friday for our brand new sketch! Winners for the last 3 sketches will be announced as soon as all the uploading contemplation has been completed so stay tuned for that after the weekend!
