I am excited to be the January Guest Designer for Scrapbook Challenges !  If you love sketches, this is the place to be.  They are great and really sparked my creativity to do some 12 X 12 layouts which is where it all started for me.  Helmar is a proud sponsor to so that makes it all sweeter! 

The second sketch I was given to work with was Sketch #236:


Immediately I wanted to use the great photos I got last May when Mark and I went in the hot air balloon for my 40th Birthday!
