My name is Lee-Anne Thornton and I am so excited to be a new design team member.   I have created a layout of a winter vacation that my husband, son and I went on to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in 2010.  It was my first tropical vacation and it was so beautiful and so fun.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my layout:

I thought these bright papers just screamed tropical.

I am married to my best friend Rick and have three great kids.  My oldest son is 26 and married.  My daughter is 24 and married, and my youngest son is 12.  He is my baby and the only child still at home.

Creating something everyday, whether it is scrapbooking, crafts, photography, mixed media, cooking or baking is in my blood and I feel an emptiness if I don't create in some way every single day.  Here are some of the prizes:

Here is the Hop On Prize.  Such a great prize!  We will draw for completing a layout based on the Blog Hop Sketch and posting it to the Hop On Thread.


If you comment on all the design team blogs you could win this:

Also, there is a prize drawn for one random new member who joins Scrapbook Challenges between January 13 and January 15, 2012.
