March sketch # 2- Guest designer Theresa Amlong

Time has come for me to introduce a new guest designer. This lady is not just a guest designer, but more importantly a dear friend of mine. Her name is Theresa Amlong and I "met" her on Scrapbook.com a few years ago. Both of us had lived on Okinawa before and last year when we both lived here again, we could finally meet in real life.
Theresa is the most creative person I ever met! I'm telling you, she can make a scrapbook out of anything. I've seen albums she made out of flip-flops and sea shells for example. She has taught me so much:)

This is what Theresa has to say:

Konichiwa!
Hi, I’m Theresa. I’m a Florida resident who currently lives just one block from the beach in Okinawa, Japan. When I’m not out exploring Japan, I can be found enthusiastically creating in my scrapbook room. I love to inspire others to scrapbook and encourage the belief that there is truly no right or wrong way to go about it.
Besides my husband, I have three adorable grandsons and two pretty kitties whose lives I love to document in the pages of my scrapbooks. I find that scrapbooking helps me share my stories with my family in the states; it’s so hard to live half-way around the world from them. Such is the life of a military family!

Besides my family and scrapbooking, I love traveling, the smell of ocean air, sitting beneath the trees on a sunny day, the colors purple and turquoise, and Happy Hour with a few good friends.

I currently am a Creative Contributor for Mosaic Moments  and  I am a Close To My Heart consultant.
I would love for you to visit me on my blog at Sunshine Memories where I share my latest challenges, creations or adventures in Japan.


Dozo Yoroshiku!


Here's sketch # 46 that Theresa work with:



And she created three unique layouts based on it:

 




Here's a few of Theresa's pages based on some of my older sketches:








I asked her to share some of her personal favorites and here they are:



Isn't this one so cool?


I have seen this in real life and it's absolutely stunning!


Here it is open:

 
Thanks Theresa for sharing your work! You are such an inspiration:)
