New Month - New Sketch - New Guest Designer - Julene Matthews Creates w/ Sketch #523 by Shawn Lahr

Welcome to July 2022

As always, another new month with 4 new amazing sketches to work with!!

To start the New Month off, we'll be working with Sketch #523
created by our very own talented designer Shawn Lahr

 One of the great things about Shawn's sketches is that they're quite versatile, and this particular sketch is no exception! Lovin' all the possibilities with this one - the use of multiple photos, lots of white space, multiple patterned paper options, and you could probably even use up some scrap pieces on this as well.
 . . .and as always, I'm super excited to share with you all of the examples that Team One has created for you this week. 

To start us off - Julene, our Guest Designer for July, is sharing with us her interpretation of the sketch with this layout showcasing the Canowindra Township, a country stop she made during one of her travels. Lovin' her interpretation of the sketch and her pictures are amazing! Julene - Thank you for sharing your talents with us this month! 

. . . . . and because we all want to know, here's a little bit about Julene - 

Hello, I am honored to be chosen as the guest designer at Sketches in Thyme for the month of July. I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years and have worked on several design teams in the past. I am currently designing for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, and I own and run the Archiscraps Challenge Blog as well. I live in Sydney, Australia and aside from scrapbooking, I love to travel! Please feel free to give me a follow at Julene By Design.

. . . and sadly, Maven Cynthia will be leaving the team after this month. She was a wonderful addition to Team One while we had her, and we wish her the absolute best in her future endeavors. Her talent will be greatly missed! For her final layout, Maven Cynthia is sharing with us her take on the sketch with a layout about her time on the Design Team, and the process she uses for her pages. She even included some of her favorite pages that she created for Sketches in Thyme while a Design Team member. I totally agree with her when she said that it "just felt right" to use a Sketches in Thyme sketch. Don't you agree?
