Welcome to the Monthly Sketch Challenge!!

Hi everyone- I'm filling in for Jami this month & will be hosting a little differently so that we can still have the challenge & I can keep up. I've mostly copied & pasted her challenge header & instructions with some miner changes - I will be posting ALL sketches now. You do NOT need to wait until the Monday to post for that week. You can post at any time. Please when you post to the thread note which sketch you are posting so I can update the front.


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. You will have UNTIL THE CLOSING DATE OF THE CHALLENGE to complete, upload & share w/the rest of us!!
Close date is July 31st

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 - 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 for 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!

~*BONUS SKETCHES - there is an additional sketch for every Wednesday of the month 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 RIGHT side of the page. Click the "Link/Embed image" option.

WELCOME everyone So good to see you all here. Yes Jami is okay- just a bit overwhelmed with life at the moment, which happens to all of us from time to time. I just have been so addicted to sketches myself so thought it best to help out this month & next month if she needs me to. Can hardly wait to see what everyone does.

Here is an added incentive- the person(s) who complete all 10 sketches will get a RAK from me! So keep track...
