November's Sketch~ guest designer Melissa Laverty

It's time for a new month and a new sketch and also it's time to introduce Scrap A Little's first guest designer. Yay!
Her name is Melissa Laverty and this is what she has to say:

Hey Scrappy peeps! I had so much fun playing with Helen's awesome sketch!

I'm Melissa Laverty, aka fancyMelissa and I LOVE putting my memories to art! I'm a consultant with Close to My Heart, a premier scrapbook & stamp direct sales company located in the United States and Canada. We have excellent scrapbooking supplies and the world's best clear acrylic stamps. If you haven't tried stamping on your projects, you really need to.

I have been teaching my customers paper crafting for more than four years. In addition to teaching at CTMH's annual Convention this summer, I serve on the company's Advisory Board. I also lead a team of over 40 consultants from Virginia to Japan. Finally, I'm a little bit addicted to Social Media. I'd love to add you to my exclusive Facebook Group. Please check out my blog & art gallery at fancyMelissa. What fun!

Here's the new sketch;

And here's Melissa's take on it;

Thanks Melissa for your inspiration and colorful layouts!

Look forward to a new sketch and a new designer in two weeks.
