~Monthly Challenge~
Sketches...a sketch a day!
Do a sketch (or pagemap as it is sometimes called) a day! Yes that adds up to 31 LO's! But, you can do a card format or a LO format!

You are responsible to pick out the sketch
. You can find some here (scrapbook.com or on other websites and on pinterest) Then post the sketch and the ie: LO or card. You don't have to have each sketch done on that day. You can post several sketch LO's or cards, in a group. Just like you do with just the LO's! You can combine them with the dailies where possible! You can take points as well.

IF you post 31 sketch LO's or card's by the end of the month you will get a SUPER AMOUNT of 10,000 points. You have to do all 31 days by the end of the month! Keep a running tally on your siggy of all your LO's and card's done for the monthly.

Any questions? If so just ask!
