Welcome Lu!

Happy Monday!!  This year has flown by and soon we will be entering our 8th year of offering card and layout sketch inspiration!!  Wow!  That's a lot of sketches!  Each new year we have a few changes and 2020 will be no different.  Beginning January 1st, 2020 we will be saying hello to our newest design team member Lu Loy and saying good by to our social media team member Cathy Sanders!  Saying good by is always hard but we hope you will join us in wishing Cathy well on her future endeavors!  Lu Loy will be taking over Cathy's spot as of January 1st.  You may recognize Lu from her time as a Guest Designer back in October.  Here is a little about Lu:
Hello from Northwest North Carolina! I'm Lu and I've been married to my husband Mike for 40 years. We have a daughter who lives right outside of Chicago.  I can't really remember when I started using sketches...best guess would be 5-6 years ago. I can tell you, however, that my scrapping style totally changed and it continues to evolve. Almost every single layout I do begins with a sketch. When I discovered Sketch N Scrap I really got into card making. The card sketches I find here are simple, not fussy, and that complements my scrapping style. When I'm not scrapping, I like to sew, cross stitch and read. I'm happy to be joining the social media team here at Sketch N Scrap! 
Welcome Lu, we are so glad to have you on our team!  Now stay tuned for more card and layout sketch inspiration in the New Year.  There will be no big changes for right now but please follow us here on the blog or on Facebook or Instagram to keep up to date with all our challenges!  Happy creating!
