More Inspiration for YOU!!

Hello.  Doreen and I are back sharing our inspiration  for the April Make it Monday No. 58.
I love our different but similar takes on the sketch!!  We both used larger pictures.  I love how Doreen framed the corner of her pics and the colors are so pretty.  Mine was a little bit plainer.  I love working outside my comfort zone but this sketch definitely challenged me.  




And here is the sketch that we used (from April).


Happy Creating,

Welcome Guest Designer, Esther

Today I would like to welcome and introduce to you Esther.  She is our guest designer for the month of May.  You can see the first layout she created this month below.  I am so thrilled to have her share her talents with us this month.  Here is what Esther shared about herself...


Hello, I’m Esther, 41 years old.
Together with my son from 10 years old, and husband I live in Almere, the Netherlands.
I work part time as a financial administrator by an importer for photography supplies. How lucky can you be?

Besides my scrapbooking hobby I like to go hiking, geocaching and traveling. Of course these are the perfect combinations with taking pictures to scrap.  With a husband, who is a hobby photographer, I always have the choice of a lot of great pictures for my layouts.

When I scrap I love to work with sketches. Usually I make double page layouts. When I have a sketch for a single page, I combine these often with another layout template. This is a great way to put a lot of photos on a layout.

I’m a “clean” scrapper. Yes, I also like all the mixed media products and use them, but almost never very much on one page. Something I always do is inking the edges of every photo and piece of paper on my layout. Further I really like to use rubons and (letter) stickers.

When you want to see more of my layouts, please visit my blog www.essiesscrap.blogspot.nl . When you want to be updated when I post a new layout, follow this blog by email.
Thanks for choosing me as a guest designer at “The memory nest”.  


I LOVE how Esther took the single page sketch and created a double layout.  the fact that all the shapes are cut from pictures is amazing. I can't even imagine the time it took for her to plan that.  WOW!!  Thanks, Esther for sharing this fabulous page with us.

To see what the rest of the DT created click here.  I hope you will join Esther and the rest of us in creating something with the first May sketch.

Happy welcoming Esther!
