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 March, [starting Monday, March 4, and ending Monday, March 25], 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 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.


***~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.



~WELCOME & HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!!

So the question of the day is... do you want to start this coming Wednesday with a bonus sketch? It would give you 5 bonus sketches and 4 weekly sketches?

It doesn't matter to me either way! I just figured that if you all wanted to continue with the Wednesday bonus sketches and not have a break, I'd offer that option. March ends on a Sunday, and the way April sketches look they will have to be posted on Monday, unless Jami's back and then it's her call.

What would you guys like?

I personally prefer when month's don't overlap, but that's just me. I just have to try to tell myself that I don't HAVE to do them all. LOL

Seeing as I will never get them all done anyway...I am okay w/ whatever you decide!

Technically, they won't overlap because the last sketch here is posted on Friday. But I get what you mean... and it's just a bonus sketch, as well. I was just wondering if anyone was interested in having an extra or not. I am fine with doing either as it's just another page planned and knocked out for me (I'm almost to 2012... which means that I'm almost only a year behind! lol)

It doesn't matter to me. I'm still working on Feb. sketches, I seem to have lost my mojo.

signing up for March too. I don't think i'll finish all Feb bonuses though - having done one sun rays sketch in the beginning of the month, two more just don't have the same appeal.. and the printer cartridge ran out)) Anyway, I'm okay with just 4 bonuses - end of month is always busy with catching up on love and signing up etc.
