June 1st sketch

Good afternoon

And welcome to the start of a new season. I'm hoping that it's not too cold of a Winter this year. I definitely don't like the cold!

This month we have a fabulous new guest designer, Christin Gronnslett.
My name is Christin Gr√łnnslett, I am a 39 year old living in Norway with husband and kids (3 and 6) - Anea and Troy. I first came into contact with scrapbooking 11 years ago after a brief stay in the US when I wanted to document our travels when I got home. I starting to look for inspiration and I search and shopped for years, even had my own room for years before I actually started scrapbooking something for myself - I mostly made albums as gifts to friends and family. But in 2008 my life changed, I met the world of cropping, and I loved getting to know new scrapbook friends and see IRL what other people was making, and from then on I started to scrapbook more often and after the birth of our daughter in 2009 I started to scrapbook a little every day and now I can't imagine just hanging out on the couch anymore when the kids are asleep - I want to scrap instead.
 
I started out as a pretty clean and simple scrapper, even though I bought tons of flowers, I couldn't relly get it to work for me. In a way I still think my style have just evolved in that I still don't use many flowers, I like prefer clean and fresh colors. What has changed is that I have included more layers of paper and other materials and that I have more mixed media products on my page. I still have huge problems making a layout where I can't have white space. I always want the photo to be my focal point and I feel that filling up a page with lots of paper and lots of decorations draw the eyes away from my photos.

I am lucky enough to design for Pink Paislee, Papirdesign, Zva Creative, The Color Room, Scrap Around the World and a Norwegian store called Gode Minner.
 
And now onto the sketch and Creative Team samples.
