Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....


Our guest designer for this challenge is Anna Uhras, please join me in welcoming her to Stuck?! Sketches !!


I will let Anna tell you a bit about herself....
 
"Hi I'm Anna and I'm from a little village in the middle of Sweden. My family of seven, hubby, five kids (20 - 2 ) and me are living at our farm, where my hubby works, and I work halftime as a hairdresser. I have to admit I'm addicted to Scrapbooking and all the pretty papers and supplies around our awesome hobby. As often as I can I love playing along at Stuck?! Sketches, therefore I'm so happy and honored that Laura asked me to guest this month. Laura have teached me  A LOT, by her amazing sketches, how to build a balanced layout.( Thank you Laura) I´m also a member of two design teams, which is so fun and very devoloping. My first contact with this hobby was about 2007, mostly cardmaking. But I think my "real" start was about Fall 2012 when I discovered Scrapbooking with layouts. I mostly do traditional 12x12 but also letter size sometimes. My style is hard to define for me, it depends of what has inspired me at that moment. But I love rich colors, layers, white space, thread and even mashine stiching is often to find on my layouts.  You are more than welcome to visit me at my blog, http://urascrap.blogspot.se/"

Here is Anna's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Anna!

Now let's have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals....

This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Melissa Vining!


Here is Melissa to tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi I'm Melissa and I'm from Queenstown, New Zealand. I love playing along at Stuck?! Sketches and have been a huge fan of Laura's gorgeous sketches for many years. I'm married with three kids (8, 6 and 21 months) and I've been scrapbooking for nearly 8 years. I love capturing our family memories, and of course playing with pretty supplies! Traditional 12x12 layouts are my love, but I also make mini albums. My style is clean and fresh with extra added detail. I love machine and hand stitching, and I have a current obsession with gold colour shine! I'm blessed to be on several design teams. You can find me on my blog (http://yesterday2day4ever.blogspot.co.nz), Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/melissajanev/) and YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0W-mT33Thho-f2O3WHGCTA). Thank you so much for having me as the Guest Designer for this reveal."

Here is Melissa 's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Melissa!

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