December sketch # 2- Guest designer Lynn Shokoples

Another two weeks has passed and it's time for me to introduce a new fabulous guest designer;

Her name is Lynn Shokoples and this is what she has to say:

Hi Fellow Scrappers!

Thanks so much Helen for the opportunity to work with sketch #39. It was so much fun to do. I couldn’t just stop at one!
My name is Lynn Shokoples aka scrappyhappymom and I live in Canada.
I have been scrapbooking in some form for as long as I can remember. I was always cutting and gluing something, then ,in 1992 when my son was born, a girlfriend from the U.S.A. came for a visit and brought me some scrapbook supplies. I was HOOKED! It was only some pens and stickers, but I was thrilled. When I look back at those first albums I can now see how far the industry has come as well as how my style has developed as a scrapbooker. When I look at my scraproom I not only see the pens and papers but inks, mists, glitters, punches and pearls. I love to scrapbook because everyone's style is so unique and it gives us a chance to be creative and express ourselves through our art. I love getting inspiration from other scrappers. My biggest joy is when my children who are 22 and 18 pull out the albums and reminisce over the memories our family created and that were documented through my love of scrapbooking.
Happy Scrappin everyone!

This is sketch # 39 that Lynn worked with:
