Color Combo Challenge #87


Please welcome our Guest Designer this week, Sharyn Tormanen!

First of all, thank you so much for inviting me to play this week. I love using an inspirational launching point to begin my layouts, and a selected color combo as fun as this one is right up my alley!

I've been scrapbooking for, let's just say, a very long time. I began as a child putting stories and pictures together in those old manilla albums that are now fragile keepsakes kept on a shelf high in my closet. Photography and journaling are a part of me. While I sometimes find it hard to irk out time to create a page these days as a busy stay at home mother to four active children, I do make time to blog each day. The way I figure it, even if I don't find the time to get those stories all down onto a 12 x 12 format, I'll still have them.

And that's what's important to me.

I've been designing for Technique Tuesday for over three years now, and Scrapsupply for nearly two. I enjoy those commitments because they keep me going to my scrapbook table, and I love the creative push. I've been published in BHG, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Paper Crafts and more. My favorite scrap endeavor to date tho has been being a part of Debbie Hodge's Get it Scrapped book. The layouts that I created for that book, I feel, are the best example of my style and what I try to share with future generations. For me, it's about the stories.

Sharyn, so glad to have you here! Get a closer look at Sharyn and her work on her blog!
