Thank you to those who had applied
It was not easy for me, to pick the DTs
After much consideration, I would like
to introduce you to SK 4 new DTs

Let's learn more about them
Monique Liedtke

"My name is Monique Liedtke,
I live in Netherlands and I'm a SAHM of 3 wonderful kids,
who are the main focus of my scrapping.
I've been married for almost 13 years to Patrick,
who is luckily very supportive to my scrapbooking addiction
I started scrapbooking  about 6 years ago
and become addicted straight away!
I love that scrapbooking gives me a creative outlet
and it makes me so much more "aware"
of every little thing that than I was before started scrapping
I don't really have one style, it depends very much on my mood
However I love machine stitching on my layouts
and I tend to use lots of details!
If you want to know more about me,
please visit my blog
I'm so honoured to be a part of this wonderful group
and looking forward to meeting all of you!!"

Pia Salem-Lopez

"Hi, I'm Pia from Philippines
I'm blessed with the two boys of my life, 
namely my hubby Jeff, and my 4 year old son, Ethan
I've been creating and making pieces of history
for my family since 2005
My layouts are mostly about my son 
but I make it a point to scrap about me & hubby too
I love to scrap using bold and bright colours on my layouts
My layouts and photos, if I may say,
scream with colours!!
And there's one embellishment that I couldn't live
without that would be buttons!!
For me, they are the perfect companions for my boys layouts
My layouts mirror my family's personality - 
we're a crazy bunch, we love to laugh and play!

I'm so happy to be part of the Scrappin Kids Crew!"

Ria Mojica

"I'm Ria Mojica from the Philippines
and I'm excited to be part of the SK Crew!
I have been married to my soul mate, Buddy 
for almost 10 years and have been a stay at home mom 
to 3 kids, Luis, Nadya & Bianca for the last 7 years
I've always into crafts, but I never felt the rush
until I discovered scrapbooking in 2003
Scrapbooking opened a whole new world to me -
new friends, new achievements, new goals,
not to mention shopping!!
I love that it allows me to have a creative outlet
while recording my family's memories

I would describe my style as eclectic, only because
it varies depending on my mood, the photos or papers
that I'm working with or if I want to try something new
I prefer to do LOs that are about fun and happy everyday moments
I made an extra effort to make multi-photos pages
because I have so much to show
I love embellishments and trying out new tools and techniques
I have been making an effort to scrap simpler and use up my stash"

Yatie Tajudin

"Hi. My name is Yatie Tajudin and I'm from Malaysia
I'm a mother to a 7 year old girl
I've been scrapping since July 2007 and LOVE
every single thing about it
From the shopping, to the techniques, 
to the placement of elements......
oh did I mention shopping??
Don't we all love shopping??

I have to say that I don't really have a specific style
but rather a mixture of everything,
depending on my mood when I'm scrapping
I also loved altered arts and just love to try
and experiment with different mediums on a project
But most of all what I love about scrapbooking
is the friends that I've made all over the world
Friends who share the same passion as I do 
and understands that language!!!

I am so excited and honoured to be part of the Scrappin Kids Design team
and looking forward to be working 
on the layouts and projects every month!"

Do come back on 1st July
to be inspired by the new SK Crew!!

SK Sketch #3

This month will be doing a sketch challenge here
Here's SK Sketch #3 created
by our Creative Advisor, Jessy 

The challenge is to do a layout based on the sketch
The layout has to be kids related
Designs are open to your own interpretation
but they have to be recognizable

Here are our RDs' interpretation on the sketch

"I just love doing this layout using the sketch!
I was able to put in several pics of our 
Frappacino break in one layout
We have these phtos taken when
my mom was here for a visit
I had a blast using the Hambly transparencies
on my page as well as the splattering of acrylic paint 
on my base"

"Summer of 2009 
was spent in the beaches of Laiya, Batangas
It was always exciting to bond with the boys
Tattoo session with Luigi 
and just plain water splashing with little Chuy and Daddy"

"A great sketch to compile Adam's 
1st day of school pictures
Adam was having mixed feeling 
on his 1st day
and in fact, Mama was excited too"

Here are the layouts created by our DTs
Thanks to Aniza, Michelle, Vivs, Wendy & Yvette
for inspiring us the past 6 months :)

"You are gonna be three soon
My! How time flies!
You have been asking us to buy you a tri-scotter
We told you that you have to be bigger 
to play the tri-scotter
That's why nowadays, everytime you eat or have your milk
you would tell us that you have grown
and really for this!"

"Sean had his birthday at Skytrex last month
Eric took so many wonderful photos of him
and hence this sketch is perfect for me
to put all the photos together
I have chose to make a messy layout
and love how I could add on so many
embellishments and making it very boyish layout"

"There are no words to say
but your existance has keep us alive
You are the key to our happiness
Let this moment stay forever"

"The kids love helping out in the garden,
and when it is time to harvest the vegies
it is even so
Potato picking is super exciting
as you just never know 
what you are going to find
Tiny baby potatoes through to 
giant alien mutations
sooo much fun!"
