Our guest for this challenge is Michelle Marks, please join me in welcoming her to Stuck?! Sketches!!


I will let Michelle tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi, I’m Michelle, a 48 yr old dialysis nurse from Corner Brook, Newfoundland. 

 I recently celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary with my hubby, Rob. We have two grownup but not quite out the door yet kids, a daughter, 22yrs and a son, 20yrs. Throw in a couple of cats, a dog and some fish, and you have my zoo! 

 I have been scrapbooking for approximately 15 years and also enjoy card making, mixed media, tags, etc. Add in painting, gardening, photography, reading and walking and you can bet that there are not enough hours in the day for me! 

Thank you so much Laura, for inviting me to be a guest designer this month! Pop on over to my blog if you’d like to see more of my work! http://www.michellesscrapbits.blogspot.com"

Here is Michelle's awesome layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Michelle!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....
