July member sketch challenge

Hi this is Bente, and I'm here to share a sketch I made from a layout I found in the gallery.

Oh, I so enjoyed myself looking through all the inspirational pages that you posted in the gallery this last month. We truly have the best members here at the Nook and also without a doubt some of the most creative.

It was by no means an easy choice but there is something in this layout by Heather Robertson aka  scrappin_in_AK that is very appealing to me. Apart from the very cute picture of the sweet dog Sasha, I am drawn to the round circular design that also has two very distinct horisontal lines.

Heather used the July kit for this layout and as always you can find a lot more inspiration for your kit projects by browsing the member gallery.


For my sketch  I tried to follow Heather's design and also to keep it fairly open.
I know I prefer sketches to be pretty generic so that they are open to interpretation and different styles. .

To help showcase my sketch I asked Amélie aka Choup72 who's layout was picked for the sketch last month to join me.

Here is a little bit about Amélie:


My name is Amélie (Choup72 in scrap world). I’m 35 years old. I’m married and have two boys. The eldest is 7 years old and the second is just 15 months!
I live in France near the town of Le Mans.
I made scrap since the birth of my first child. I was willing to make him a birth’s album and since I have never stopped! I’m totally scrap addict. I do lot of thing around scrap! I manage a French very active forum named Made in Scrap (  It’s really a passion!!
I scrap whenever I have some time!
I always loved manual leisure, drawing, painting … Scrapbooking allows me to give expression to this artistic side. It is also a good way to get away and leave the stress of my professional life. When I am on a project, I forget everything! I focus on my picture and everything comes magically! I love to create and play with my papers!
I love making layouts and cards and occasionally mini-books. And as you can see, I love stitching and layering.
I’m currently DT for a French brand of paper Swirlcards (, for a customizable flair buttons‘s brand named Scrapbuttons  ( and for the German shop Scrapbook Werkstatt ( .
From September, I will also integrate the Pebbles’s Design Team! I am very honored!
