Scrapbook Generation Publishing Creative Team

Exciting news!

As I've mentioned before, I love sketches and I use them for much of my work. A favorite resource for double page sketches is Allison Davis' blog.

Well Allison, along with her family, own Scrapbook Generation Publishing under which Allison and her mother have published sketch books. And they have a scrapbooking store in MO, too! As part of their expansion in 2011, they've rounded up a Creative Team to help them show what sketches are all about. They will now be creating single page sketches, card sketches, and add-on sketches for smaller projects, too!

I've been asked to join their Creative Team!

I made these 3 projects with their sketches as part of my entry for the "job:"

I'm so excited to work with Allison and the other members of the Creative Team!
