Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Our Guest Designer Kim!

Hi!  I'm very excited to be GDT for this challenge...what an honor. I'm a wife, empty nester to three grown children, and MaMaw to three grandsons that I adore. I live in Florida and love the sunshine. I have a passion for scrapbooking family memories and look forward to any free time to create in my scraproom. My family is very supportive of me. My daughter and son in law actually bought me my first Cricut. My daughter is the one w​ho encouraged me to blog and enter challenges. I was hooked right after I got my first follower and won my first challenge! I would love to have you come and visit me and if you like what you see become a follower!

Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Don't forget about our Design Team call! It is ending soon, you have until November 21st to apply!

Please welcome our guest designer Silvanna!


Ciao a tutti! Il mio nome è Silvana, ma amici e parenti spesso mi chiamano Silvia perchè è più corto e mi piace di più. Vivo nella bellissima città di  Bologna in Italia, sono sposata e ho due “bambine” di 13 e 17 anni. Faccio scrapbooking da 8 anni e grazie a questo hobby ho conosciuto tante simpatiche amiche. Oltre allo scrapbooking mi piacciono tanti altri hobby come il cucito creativo, la pittura cowntry, il FIMO, ma purtroppo il tempo è sempre poco e non riesco a fare tutto quello che la mia testa vorrebbe creare. Ad esempio non riesco a partecipare a tutte le belle sfide proposte da Stick it Down. Sono felice di aver vinto una loro sfida e di essere la guest designer di questa nuova sfida.


Hello everyone! My name is Silvana, but family and friends always call me Silvia because it is shorter and I like it. I live in the beautiful city, Bologna in Italy, I'm married and I have two "girls" of 13 to 17 years. I make scrapbooking from 8 years and with this hobby I have met many nice friends. Further the scrapbooking I like so many other hobbies such as creative sewing, painting country, FIMO, but unfortunately the time is always short and I cannot do everything that my head would create. For example, I can not participate in all the beautiful challenges of Stick it Down. I'm happy to won a them challenge and to be the guest designer for this new challenge.

Now on to our fabulous design team!

I rotated the sketch 90 degrees and used smaller photos to accommodate what I had!

Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Please welcome our guest designer Kim!

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. Since our retirement, my husband and I love to travel in our RV. We enjoy our national parks and have visited 42 of our 50 states, including Alaska. My favorite place to visit is the Rocky Mountains, when you have lived your whole life in the flat lands of Louisiana, the mountains are a sight to behold.

I am relatively new to the paper crafting world. I have only been at it for about 3 years. I started creating with paper when my grand daughter was born. I finally found a reason to start using that craft room I had my husband add when we built our retirement home.

The love of paper led me to join the Close to My Heart team as an Independent Consultant. I hope to be able to keep enough business to stay part of the team. It is a great company to be affiliated with.

Now the cards from our lovely design team!
