Sketch # 38

I know everyone is swamped with holiday preparations .... cooking, shopping, decorating, planning, wrapping ... it's such a busy time of year !! So why not take a break and check out the latest Sketch !! This is a fun sketch for smaller photos and makes great use of white space.


Our guest designer this month is the lovely Naoko Okada from Japan ...


First of all, I am very honored, and will like to thank you
for inviting myself to "Inspired Blueprints" as guest designer.
I currently live in Japan with my beloved husband and with my
two sons (4 yrs and 2 yrs old). I started to scrapbooking when
my first son was born 4 years ago. I happened to see the scrapbooking
in a bookstore, and that was how I started. 4 years have passed since then,
and now scrapbooking has become very important part of my life.
Scrapbooking has also given me an opportunity to meet with
special friends, and have given me very good hobby of taking pictures
with my camera.  Taking pictures is now one of my best hobby
as well as scrapbooking.
My husband and my sons are my primary models for scrapbooking.
My boys will show many expressions each day. But it is also very difficult
to take good pictures of them as they are always running from
one place to another. When pictures are printed out,  I can instantly
recall my boys at that time.
My albums are full of my family memories!!

Thank you !!

Naoko Okada
