Thursday Takes # 32....

Welcome back to Thursday Takes....We are so excited that you are joining us today.
Our sponsor this month is the fabby Lucky Girl Crafts....

Our sketch this week is by Sketchabilities. I love, love, love this much fun to be had with it!

Now, let's meet our lovely Guest Mavens for this week.....


My name is Yuliya. I live in Russia, in Moscow. I am 34 years old and have been married for 5 years. We have a daughter aged 3. I was a stay at home mom. But I am a policewoman, a major of the police now. I work at the Federal Service of Russian Federation on drug traffic control. I am a chief detective for special matters at the Criminal Investigation Department. I work rather hard during my office hours so I feel very tired in the evening. But I scrap every evening because I enjoy paper crafting. Scrapbooking is my passion for a little over 1 year now.
I'm honored to be a Guest Designer here, Sketches In Thyme is one of my favorite sites.
Notice all the fancy cuts on this layout by Yuliya....


I am so honored to be a guest designer on Sketches in Thyme. I have been paper crafting for almost 10 years. I am a mom to 3 great kids . I have been blessed with 15 1/2 years of wedded bliss . I am thankful to have found my soul mate in my husband Kevin. They attend 3 different schools and i feel like a lot of my time is spent running "moms taxi" . I am a substitute teacher and also work at Penzeys Spices. Yes, I am a spice girl !:D My new years resolution is to plant a garden. We have live in North Carolina for 10 years and I have still not figured out the zone and soil. This is my year!
Don't you love her take on this sketch!
