Kimberly Neddo
My name is Kimberly and I am both honored and proud to be a Designing for Got Sketch Blog. I live in Bigfork, Montana and I am married and I have 3 beautiful children, Noel, Foster and Olivia and 3 bonus (step) children Mike, Lexx and Charlie. I love to take photographs every day, love on line shopping, and I'm addicted to Yoga…I have to find time every day to experience it and learn more. I love learning a little something new every day.  

I've been scrapbooking for many years, and I enjoy the idea of passing on a legacy of history to future generations to come. I scrapbook a little every day…I just love creating. I've been honored to be published by Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Scrapbook Trends, Memory Makers and Pine Cone press. I have a passion to create art, whether it be with scrapbooking or photography and love the challenges they both give me on an ongoing basis. I am thankful for this opportunity to create and inspire using the AWESOME sketches by Valerie for Got Sketch Blog and classes. Thank you for taking the time to know me more. Blessings to you!

Cari Locken
My name is Cari and I live in Langley, British Columbia (Canada) with my husband and our three children.  I love spending time with my family, baking, taking pictures and playing the piano.  I graduated with a Masters in Music in 1995 and have taught piano for over 20 years.  I enjoy teaching beginners and watching them learn & grow in what they've accomplished.

I began scrapbooking in 1997 after seeing a friend's album. I fell in love with the whole concept of using paper, stickers and other embellishments along with my photos! This hobby has become a job at times but I don't mind that at all because I enjoy it so much. I have had the privilege of designing for a variety of manufacturers and online design teams over the past several years. I am currently designing for Imaginisce, Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock, My Little Bit of Whimsy and I've been a designer for Canadian Scrapbooker magazine since its birth in 2005.  I also enjoy teaching classes throughout the area and have had the joy of teaching at many retreats, conferences and shows. It's exciting to see the students create and learn new ideas & techniques.

Scrapbooking is my passion and my creative outlet. I love creating layouts about my family but I also enjoy making cards, decor and gifts. Frankly, I'll use any excuse to sit in my studio and create! It's just a great way for me to wind down & relax.

My name is Lisette and I'm very thrilled to be on the Got Sketch Design Team. Currently we live in Melbourne, Australia but I was born in the Netherlands. I'm married to David and have three gorgeous children, Rebecca, Ruben and Renee. I love everything craft, playing piano, photography, going to the gym and Pinterest.

I've started scrapbooking 2006, but didn't get to serious until late 2007. I also started making cards, which became the bulk of my creativity, but Valerie's sketches changed that. This year I've already made more layouts than in the past two years, so I'm very grateful to be part of it. I've been on the 2 Sketches 4 You design team and Guest Designer for Jillibean Soup. I've also been published in several magazines, PaperCrafts, Scrapbook Magazine (UK), Cards Only (Netherlands). I'll be published for the first time in February's Cards Magazine issue. Besides my love for papers I also love making quilts  and are forever striving to improve my photography.

AnnaMarie Mondro
My name is AnnaMarie (yes, one word with a capital M, no middle name!), and I am so blessed and honored to be a part of the *amazing* Got Sketch? Team!  I live in the small town of Pinckney, Michigan, and have been happily married to my husband (and biggest supporter of my scrappy hobby!) John for 19 years. We have four beautiful, wonderful kidlets: Abigail, Sophie, Lucas, and Joshua, as well as a crazy little Sheltie of 8 years, Zoe.  I am a busy (and happy!) stay-at-home Momma, and my other interests outside of scrapbooking include running, photography, gardening, reading (HUGEST book lover ever!!), listening to music, and playing on my iPhone (a very addicting guilty pleasure! )
I’ve always been enamored with taking photographs, but it wasn’t until after the birth of my second daughter that I became more interested in the idea of preserving those memories on paper as opposed to simply filing away pictures into a photo album. I signed up with a friend for a couple classes at the LSS and quickly fell in love with patterned paper and embellishments…the rest is history!

My style: I love color and texture and dimensionality and details  - and especially love to play with layers and bits and pieces! I am inspired by photos of my children, colors and seasons, and all things pretty. :) I am currently on the Design Team for Prima Marketing, was a Guest Designer for American Crafts, and have been honored to be published by Scrapbook Trends.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! I am so grateful to Valerie for not only providing such wonderful inspiration with her fabulous sketches, but also for asking me to be a part of this talented team!

Virginia Wong
Hello! My name is Virginia Wong. I am thrilled to bits to be a part of the Got Sketch team! Originally from Saskatchewan, I am proud to call Calgary my home. I am a full-time Mom and recently rejoined the workforce as an Information Technology consultant.
 Scrapbooking is a part of my daily life and a part of who I am - it gives me a creative outlet and allows me to pay tribute to what is most important to me:  family, friends, memories and my life journey.  My layouts often capture the escapades of my energetic and curious girls, Madison and Danielle.
In my remaining time (!!), I run Destination ImagiNation at my daughters’ school quilt and continue to hone my photography skills. I have been fortunate to be featured in Scrapbooks etc, Memory Makers and Canadian Scrapbooker magazines and I currently design for Scrap Shotz, Urban Swank and Scrap-tastic.
I adore sketches – they are often my jumping off point. Valerie’s sketches are fabulous as they are so versatile – I can use the same sketch for several different layouts and also whip up a card or two! Thanks for having me!

My name is Chrissy Greenman.  I live in Charleston, South Carolina with my husband and two beautiful children, Brooke and Tyler.  I have been a teacher since 2001 and currently teach first grade.  I also enjoy photography, spending time with my family and friends, and riding horses.  I have been riding horses since I was 5 years old and qualified for nationals in 1998.

I am a scrapbook fanatic!  Between my two children they have over 60 completed albums!  I started scrapbooking after college in 2000 as a creative outlet.  I have been inspired ever since then to create a family legacy for my children.   I currently design for Transparent Touches.  I am so honored that Val asked me to join the Got Sketch team.  I have taken EVERY Got Sketch class and find the most inspiration from sketches.  

Angela Lauchengco
Hello from the Philippines!  My name is Angela Lauchengco and it is my privilege to be part of Valerie’s Got Sketch Team.  I have been married for 11 years and am blessed with two girls. 
I unknowingly started scrapbooking back in 2000 when I did my honeymoon album.  I saved all the tickets, brochures, and other mementos from our trip and included them in the album pages.  Little did I know that I was actually scrapbooking already at that time.  I learned to buy acid free scrapbook stuff when my eldest was born in 2002.  And now, you can say I am passionately and hopelessly  hooked to this craft. Being a working mom, scrapbooking has also served as a great way for me to de-stress after a busy day at work. 

Aside from being a certified scrapaholic, I am also a foodaholic and a shopaholic.  I dabble in photography and my favourite subjects are my kids and…food! 

Valerie is such an inspiration – not just with her sketches but also with her generosity and unwavering support for her fellow scrappers.  I hope that through Val’s wonderful sketches, I can also help bring out the creativity in you all! 

Christine Ousley
I am a mother of three beautiful children and the wife of an adoring and supportive husband. My family has always enjoyed my scrapbooking hobby and love to be the star of the "project". I have been scrapbooking for about 16 years and remember the first time I went to a crop. It was like a whole new world opened up for me. I had always enjoyed photography but this new hobby allowed me to create something from my pictures and also give them a voice. I know now that there are so many stories in our pictures that would never be told without scrapbooking. Well like everyone knows, this hobby called scrapbooking can really lead you into other crafting worlds and it wasn't long before I was learning how to stamp and make cards and other papercraft items. I love the scrapbooking business. It is a wonderful beautiful community filled the most lovely people. We care about each other, we encourage each other and we share a passion like no other and I am so glad to be a part of it. 

Diane Payne
Hi, I’m Diane Payne. I reside in Dallas, Texas with my wonderful husband of 22 years, our two teenage children and two adorable dogs. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, boating, photography, and looking for vintage treasures at flea markets. My favorite vintage find is my 1930’s Underwood typewriter, which I use as decor and for journaling on my layouts.

I started scrapbooking in 1997, shortly after my daughter was born, and I enjoy it as much today as I did then. Although I love recording the details of our life, I enjoy the creative process of scrapbooking as much as the memory keeping. I scrapbook with a variety of photo styles, including current, vintage, and Hipstamatic prints. I've been blessed with various designer opportunities over the last year and have had the pleasure of being published in Scrapbook Trends and Creating Keepsakes magazines. I love sharing my work with others and am excited to be a part of this fabulous sketch team!

Nenette Madero
My name is Nenette S. Madero and I’m from the Philippines. I have been married to my wonderful husband Chino  and have been blessed with 3 loving children—Isabela, Miguel and Andrea.  Dentistry is my profession but I  have chosen to become a full time mom. I  enjoy making handmade gifts for loved ones and friends.  Documenting my children’s lives has made me appreciate photography more.  Lately, I have found delight in  playing with mixed media art, cooking and baking.

When my eldest was born, the only scrapbooking materials available here were stickers, decorative scissors, some punches and a few sets of patterned papers.  It’s amazing how times have changed since then. I enjoy doing both traditional and digital layouts.  More than scrapbooking pictures, I treasure the journaling that comes with every page I create for my family. These are my love letters to them and I’m so grateful that I can express my true feelings through my pages.  Thank you Val for giving me the honor of being  a part of your creative team.  It is truly amazing to be surrounded by such a talented group of ladies.
