Welcome to My Sketch World Blog Hop!

Sketches, sketches, I love sketches!  Well let me tell you how excited I am! Today to show off the April 1st layout sketch and the incredibly talented designers for our next term, MSW is having a Blog Hop.  We will have another Blog Hop on April 15th to reveal the card sketch and get to know our other designers.

Join us now on our Blog Hop!

Here’s the skinny on how it works. Stop by each designer’s blog to see what fantabulous creations they’ve made using the MSW April 1st sketch and get to know them. Be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way. We are going to draw at random from all the comments left on all 9 blogs (this includes the MSW blog posting) and someone will receive a $20 GC to Scrapbook.com store!

All comments must be made by midnight PST on April 2nd. Tune into the My Sketch World Blog on April 3rd to see if you are one of the lucky winners.

So without further adieu here’s the line up:

  Joan Borgelt


My name is Joan Borgelt and I live in Shelby, Ohio with my husband Randy of 32 years and our 19 year old grandson.  By day I’m an Education Specialist and by night I’m a passionate scrapbooker, well ok a little obsessed with it!
I have been scrapbooking for over a decade, preserving our present for the future and our past for the present.  Scrapbooking is not only therapeutic but an opportunity for me to express my creativity.  The results are treasured keepsakes shared with family and friends.
I have a combination of styles:
Hip/Modern – I like trying new techniques and my color choices are bold and assorted.
Romantic – Distressing and inking are my favorite techniques. I love layering paper and if I can find a way to use ribbon and flowers on a boy layout I will.
Shabby-Chic – I love all things vintage, well worn and peeling. Experimenting with mixing colors, patterns and textures is very forgiving. My mistakes are taken as part of the look I was going for.
I love patterned paper, layering and clustering embellishments.  I’ll try any technique at least once and have just become interested in using multi mediums on my pages.  My family and especially my eight (soon to be nine) grandchildren are the focus of most of my layouts.
Besides scrapbooking I love spending time with my family, traveling and I’m somewhat of a gym rat.
I’m thrilled to be a part of this talented My Sketch World Design Team!
Here is the April 1st sketch from My Sketch World.


My take on the sketch:

Thanks for being here and now it's time to head to Ann's blog and check out her creation.
(I will randomly select a winner for a RAK from me from the posts left during the blog hop.  Become a follower of my blog for another chance to win.)
