I'm so happy to be a guest designer on Scrap A Little. I love what Helen makes every time and I really had fun working with her awesome sketches!! I'd like to thank Helen for giving me such a wonderful opportunity!!
My name is Kanako Sakurai. I live in Miyazaki, southern part of Japan. We have beautiful mountains around here, but recently we had a big eruption at Mt. Kirishima, which is quite near from here, and we have been busy gathering volcanic ashes everyday. More than 2 weeks have passed since the first eruption, but the children still cannnot play outside. Things are getting better here...I hope this will end soon!!
I've been married to wonderful and supportive husband for 8 years and we have two beautiful girls, who are 7 and 4 years old right now. I've been scrapbooking since 2004, when my first girl was born, and I've been addicted to this creative hobby ever since! I love to see my girls smiling when they look at my layouts!
I am a SAHM, and never worked as a guest designer or anything like that before, so I'm so excited to share my layouts with you.
If you want to see more of my work, my blog is "My Sweet Scrappy Time" but it's mostly in Japanese.
Here is sketch # 44 that Kanako worked with:
and her two takes on the sketch:
Here are more fabulous layouts from Kanako:
This pretty one is based on sketch # 40
and these two are based on sketch # 10
Aren't they all so lovely and playful?
Last, are two of Kanako's favorite layouts
Did you see the flowers she made? I love it!
Thanks Kanako for sharing your creativity with us and I really hope all the volcano ashes are gone by now.
