And now, let's meet our Guest Designers for this week. First up is.....

Angie A.

I have been scrapbooking for several years...I am totally hooked...I pretty much scrapbook everyday...I am grateful for a family who supports me in this crazy hobby because without them I would have to take photos of myself and well that would not be as much fun. I am about to become a gramaw again for the third daughter is due on Christmas day and my son and his wife are expecting their third child in along with all my dogs and grandkids I should not run out of scrapbooking ideas...

Sarah Swann

Hi! My name is Sarah Swann. I'm a military wife and stay-at-home mom to a two-year-old little princess. I've been scrapbooking since 2003 and love every aspect of it. I love being on the message boards and challenge sites to be inspired and share ideas. There's so much creativity out there and I'm honored to be a part of it. I'm currently a Design Team Member at Scrapping the Moments and I'm so excited to have the privilege to Guest Design here at Sketches in Thyme. Can't wait to see everyone's take on the sketches here! Happy Scrapping!

Our next Guest Designer this week is Melissa Gross.....

Hi! I’m Melissa and I live and scrap in the great state of Texas. I am married to a wonderful Christian man who not only shares my beliefs but also totally supports my scrapbooking addiction and often surprises me with new items for my stash. I have scrapbooked most of my life, starting in elementary school putting memorabilia in a scrapbook my Mama started when I was born. I’ve been using the new scrapbooking methods and supplies for the past 12 years. I truly love preserving our memories in a way that is also an outlet for my creativity. I especially enjoy using sketches as inspiration for my layouts. I tend to use whichever supplies inspire me at the moment, often combining new supplies with items I’ve had in my stash for years. I started blogging earlier this year and have enjoyed sharing many of my layouts and other scrappy projects online.
