Hey there fellow Scrappers! I'm relatively new to the world of challenges here on Scrapbook.com, in fact I just participated in my first one last month, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This month I've decided to host a challenge of my very own.
Welcome to the NEW 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 a page seem so much simpler to put together when you are feeling overwhelmed by the # of photos/all the embellies/different papers, etc. or when you can't seem to come up with an original idea for the page you want to create. I am in constant search of inspiration & I've found sketches to hold a wealth of it when I am stuck or in need of an idea to get me started on my next project.
So this challenge is for anyone in need of a little creative jump-start or inspirational push to get them back to scrappin' & preserving those treasured memories...or for those of you who like me have used sketches and know how valuable they can be & love them as much as I do--and did I mention there will be prizes awarded for the winners! Yes I said winners meaning more than one! That's right fellow scrapaholics--I will be giving away prizes [in the form of various scrappin' goodies from my own personal collection], to the creators of the LO's w/the most votes @ the end of the month.
Do I have your attention NOW?
If so, here's how to play:
1. Reply to this topic & let me know you are game!
2. Every Mon. in August--[w/the exception of Aug. 31st since that will start the month of Sept.'s challenge],--I will post a new sketch that you will have exactly 1 week to complete & upload/share with the rest of the class. Entries MUST be posted on the thread no later than the following Monday by 12 noon PST[4pm EST].
3. Players may join anytime during the month and DO NOT have to complete all 4 sketch challenges to qualify for a prize. However they DO have to check in more than once a month & be actively involved in the thread, [i.e...leave some love/comments for other players] as well if they would like their work to be eligable for a prize.
4. At the end of the month all players should PM me their top 3 Favs for each week & the 3 LO's for each week w/the most nominations will then be put to a vote. ALL members of SB.com will be eligable to vote for their favs...after which 4 winners will be selected[one for each week of the month]. Winners will be announced & then must PM me their contact info[shipping address/email], so that I can send them out their prizes!

The Overseas Railroad By Jamariel
For my example I chose to just do pg. 1 of this week's sketch since it fit better w/what I wanted to create.
I substituted my journaling in where the second photo was since I only had 1 pic, but tried to keep it as close to the sketch as possible.
Good luck w/this one ladies, looking forward to seeing everyone's week 3 entries! : ]
