Welcome to the Monthly Sketch Challenge!!

One of my favorite & most used tools in my scrapbooking happens to be sketches. I've been using them for years & love how a great sketch makes my pages so much simpler to put together--especially when you feel like you're out of inspiration for the LO you want to create. So this challenge is for anyone in need of a little creative jump-start or inspirational push to get them back to preserving those treasured memories...and it's for those of you who like me, have used sketches and know how valuable a creative tool they can be! : )

Ready to Play? If so, here's how!

1. Reply to this topic & let me know you are game!

2. Every MONDAY during the month of November, [starting a few days early this month on Monday 10-29, and ending Monday 11-12], I will post a new sketch that you will have UNTIL THE CLOSING DATE OF THE CHALLENGE to complete, upload & share w/the rest of us!!

3. Any size LO 6x6 and larger is welcome!

4. Digital LO's are also welcome.

5. Players may join at anytime during the month and DO NOT have to complete all of the sketches posted.

6. COMMENTS~Everyone loves to get comments, but it is NOT a requirement of participation in this challenge & it is entirely up to each individual player to leave them or not.

7. VOTING & PRIZES~NEW CHANGES!! Let's try something a little different-instead of having a regular poll at the close of the challenge, PM me w/your FAV LO for each individual weekly sketch, just 1 FAV per week please! And please do NOT vote 4 yourself as I will award you a double vote just for voting! Based on the # of votes received, 1 artist per week will be named MSC FAN FAVORITE for the month! The artists voted FAN FAVORITES will then go into a blind drawing for a RAK of scrap-goodies from my very own personal stash. Once a winner is drawn I will post it to the thread & contact them w/further instructions.

~*WEDNESDAY'S are now going to be BONUS SKETCH DAYS!! That means I will post an additional sketch every Wednesday for your scrappin' pleasure! It will be entirely up to YOU whether you choose to do the bonus sketches~they are completely OPTIONAL and are only being provided for additional inspiration!*~

**~You are also always welcome to play along just for fun & all the scrappy inspiration & share your LO's whenever you complete them.

***Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday this month I will only be posting 3 week's worth of sketches w/the final weekly sketch being added on Nov. 12th! Bonus sketches will continue to be posted throughout the month for inspiration and you will still have until Nov 30th @11:59pm sb.com time to upload your entries for the weekly sketches!***


***~Public Embedding and Uploading to Challenge~***

1. Once your LO is uploaded to the gallery Go to your gallery and click on it.
2. Under small pic of LO check box for "Allow PUBLIC EMBEDDING"
3. Click "SUBMIT

NEXT, to Upload to the Challenge Thread...
1. First click on the LO you want to upload.
2. Scroll down to the "Share & Link" box on the left side of the page. Click the "Link/Embed image" option.
3. A Box will open up with a small pic of your LO. Where it says 'Embed This Image' select "IMG CODE" above the image.
4. RIGHT CKICK and COPY the code it gives you. (you can also change the size of the image if you desire.)
5. Go to Challenge
6. Go to any Reply Box and RIGHT CLICK and then PASTE the code.

I love them all but definitely use this one as a jumping off challenge. I'm not creative enough YET to design my own lo's so I start here and let it flow into the other challenges.

Welcome once again all my scraptastic sketch lovin' friends! You are all in for a treat this month w/the addition of a brand new sketch designer I've added to my list of regular FAVS--whose work I stumbled across last week while on a blog hop believe it or not! Surprisingly enough her sketches have had only a few select appearances on other challenge blogs, but that is all about to change as I have fallen in love w/her designs! With her blessing I have the honor to announce that we will be working w/her original sketches this month for our weekly challenges, and as long as they are well received as I suspect they will be, I will incorporate her sketches into the challenge regularly after this month.
Ok, enough w/the teasing, the FABULOUS new designer who's sketches we will be scrapping this month is Michele Singh aka Design Honey!

And since I can't contain my excitement over her work, here is the 1st sketch of hers we will be scrapping a day early!!!!

Week 1 Sketch:

Can't wait to see all your creations! Have fun friends!! : )
