Sketch #11

Welcome to a new month and a new sketch here at Inspired Blueprints. Here's Sketch #11 and it is provided by Anne-Marie.


Our guest designer for the month is the talented Michele Beck. Here is the gorgeous layout Michele created for us.


Here's a little about Michele...

Michele photo

My name is Michele Beck; better know as Michou in the scrapping world! I am 30 years old, I live in France with my wonderful husband Cedric and our two little girls, Camille and Melany, who are 6 and 3 years old. I am a stay at home mum, so I have a lot of time for my passion. I have been scrapbooking for nearly 3 years now. Thanks to scrapbooking, I have met lots of talented people in the world…
I love scrapping because it offers the opportunity to use many crafts, such as painting and sewing. I think it’s the more creativity things I have ever made; you can do what you want when you do scrapbooking! And the most important, it’s memories for my daughters! I love when Camille give me her opinion about my layouts, when she looks happy because I made a mini album with pictures of her, and when she asks me to read for her the title and the journaling.
My work can be seen on my blog or on my English blog
I design for scrapbooking manufacturers (Onirie, Memento, Tada Creative Studio, Upsy Daisy Designs), a French kit company La Scrapinerie, and I contribute to two French blogs Scrapidees and 52ruescrapcops.
This year I began giving classes seriously and I really enjoyed that! Sharing my passion with people, it’s so important, so pleasant!
Thanks so much for this sweet invite, and congrats for this wonderful blog! So much inspiration here!

Thank you again, Michele for your wonderful inspiration. We LOVE that layout.

We also have takes on the sketch by our very own designers...
