We would like to shout a great big THANK YOU to everyone who applied to our sketch blog design team call.  We really appreciated and loved each and every application!  We're so glad that so many talented scrappers applied, and we wish we could have picked everybody.

Becky Litz
Hello Everyone! My name is Becky. My partner Trevor and I live with our two kiddos; Olivia 9 and Sullivan 1 in Cranbrook BC in the heart of the B-E-A-U-tiful Canadian Rocky Mountains. I am a Elementary School teacher but I am taking some time off to stay home with our son. I got started scrapbooking about 10 years ago and later started making cards and other projects. Most recently I have started playing around with Mixed Media as well.  Papercrafting is my passion and I am so excited to be able to share it with you. I am thrilled to be a part of the My Creative Sketches Team! Please stop by and visit my blog at

Bonnie Friesen
Hi! My name is Bonnie aka Cinnabon,
I am a wife to George of 26 yrs, a mother to two young adults. Jerica is 23, married almost 1 yr, and lives in Wpg and works in a hair salon full time. Jordan is 20, and works at our local Bible Camp as their "techy" sound man and in charge of the climbing wall. This is his 4th summer working there. Its amazing how time flies! I was a hairstylist for 24 yrs and am now retired due to health issues. Here are a few things you need to know about me... I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, I LOVE slurpee's and the color pink! In any form! I started scrapbooking in September/08, after my dear Mother passed away from cancer. It has been a life saver for me as I work through my grief and allow my creativity to flow. Scrapping has become a big part of my life, and it is something I love to share with anyone who is willing to look at my work. I consider my scrapping as art. I am very detailed orientated and therefore have great difficulty keeping my layouts simple with alot of "white space". I love doing sketches as they stretch my creativity and prevent me from getting stuck in a creative rut! I am extremely happy to be on the Design Team for My Creative Sketches!

Jodi Baune
I am so thrilled and honored to be a member of the My Creative Sketches team! I am a dedicated, fun-loving country girl with two boys ages 18 and 23, and an amazing husband. I am very blessed that they are extremely supportive of my hobby.

I am the shy, quiet type...most of the time :) I am a weird mix of girly girl and tom boy. Pedicures are awesome, but I'm not afraid to dip my pretty toes in a puddle or two! Pretty much, I am just the girl next door. During the day I tend to 8 precious small children by operating a daycare business in my home. Some of my other interest include gardening, reading, and browsing through antique shops for inspiration. I love vintage!

Veronica Goh
I hail from the sunny island of Singapore, and am a full-time working mother of two beautiful girls, who form the subjects for most of my layouts and projects.
I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2007, and it has become a passion with me, as is art and photography, all three of which I think go hand in hand beautifully, capturing and preserving those very special moments in our lives.
I enjoy designing projects in the shabby-chic style, with lots of flowers, inking, tearing and distressing, fussy cutting and layering. Very 3-dimensional, with lots of texture. And I also enjoy trying out new styles and learning and experimenting with new techniques that I can incorporate into my projects, as I think these allow me to stretch my boundaries and to grow and evolve in terms of my creativity.
I often draw inspiration from a variety of sources - from the photo or products I see before me, to online galleries and unusual art pieces, to beautiful sketches I come across. I'm currently also teaching on a freelance basis at a leading LSS here, and am very honored and absolutely delighted to be joining the super talented team at MCS!

Yuko Tanaka 
My name is Yuko Tanaka live in Japan with my husband and one beautiful daughter. She was born this year, I enjoying child-rearing. I started sorted our wedding photos and organizing so that I could start “scrapbooking” in 2007. Now absorbed in leaving a proof of a daughter's growth.
My style of scrapbooking is constantly changing and I always look for new techniques and ideas. I currently love mist ,ink on my pages. I'm excited and honored to be join this team!!!
