Here's sketch 1 with the Twist!
The larger flowers are made with a heart buckle punch I have. I punched five "petals" for each flower and put together with a brad. The black & yellow flower has a solid yellow flower center added.

Sooo, went into my LSS today to buy ONE - that's ONE - piece of Authentique pp for the Bonus sketch. I have a bunch of scraps in the line I want to use, but I wanted a full sheet for the bg. Yeah - so $70+ later, I made it out of there. I should SO know better. I bought the entire G45 Place in Time line to use for either my '12 or '13, not sure yet, calendar LO's. I also bought a flourish die, a Glimmer Mist, and some Studio Calico wood hearts & arrows. Sheesh.

LOL. It's those $3.99 and $4.99 things from A's that add up SO fast!! Did you at least have the $10 coupon?

So, I had my pictures in mind for the bonus and when I finished cropping they weren't perfect to fit the sketch, but I took liberties and finished it. I love challenges..FINALLY I feel like I'm back on track! I'll post tomorrow. Happy Weekend everyone!!!!

yes...now I see the first one and the bonus and figured out that was what you were doing. I scrolled thru to make sure I was signed up and found this response. Why do I not get email letting me know there has been a response?

I believe that you have to click "subscribe to topic" to be able to get the emails, but I will forewarn you that this thread will get busy and you may find that you have far more emails than you imagined possible in one day! LOL

This is opposed to just clicking "add to my favorites" which will enable you to access it from your "My Favorite Topics" menu. Using that, you can see when new posts have been added, as well, and don't get the emails regarding the thread.

Hope that helps!

I'm not ready to commit to the challenge this month, but I'm gonna pop in now and again to see your sketches and the work going on. There are some new faces here which adds to the fun!

I'm going to see how crazy I get by the end. LOL. Yesterday was pretty nutso for me... I'm having one of those negativy ninny weeks where nothing I do is good enough for my own incredibly high, unreachable standards for myself. LOL

I figure as long as I can keep up on the daily stuff here, that'll be a feat! I'm already looking at how March is going to happen... but I figured I'd wait more until mid-February before I start planning, in case Jamie is ready to take back over!

I use little post-it notes to cover up areas I don't want misted. I always practice spray once (because I seem to forget how to, plus it primes the pump), and I close my eyes when I finally do spray. LOL.

But really... once you figure out that you can't control every little drop, you become fearless!

Lesley - It was my LSS, not A's, so no coupons. I do get a 5 or 10% loyalty bonus discount on everything, but that doesn't amount to much.

Nancy - I've never bought G45. So not my style, but I just loved that line - I have to give it a whirl!

No scrapping for me all weekend - hopefully, I can get to it all day tomorrow.

FWIW, when I first started scrapping, I found the whole process easier when I used a sketch. Don't feel like you have to copy every element -- they give you some guidelines and help you place pics and embellies in a pleasing way. But you can stray away from a sketch as much as you want if you feel it's too complex.

Doreena, I read the story. LOL! Honey, you sound emotional like me when I feel as if I have "messed" something up, especially my photos! And I usually make two photos: 1 to scrap and 1 to keep:) I would have never known that you messed up that layout. That is one of my fav's! Wish me luck!

Ok, ladies. I DID it! I used the mist to mask the title and I love the way that turned out. I will finish it up with some free style misting when I get home this evening(wish me luck.) Hopefully I can upload it this evening.

I have a question and it may be a silly one, but of course, I am going to ask anyway. Does the sketch of the week that you are working on have to be done by the time the new sketch is posted? Or is it as long as you have them done by the end of the month? I am personally doing mine weekly so that I can keep up, but I was just wondering. Anyone can answer that question for me. Please and thank you.

Artesha-
If I read it correctly, the rules state you have until the close of the challenge.

K. Thanks, my friend! I kept rereading it just to make sure that I comply with the rules. You know I'm such a cut up!

Doreena, LOVE your 'misting mishap' story. I was giggling. I can just see it. I have only misted a monogram but this just might inspire to try a lo...I'll remember to mist first, place photos second. Thanks for sharing and for your transparency.

Please don't apologize for asking questions. One of the best things about this forum and most of them, is how helpful everyone is. Asking for clarification of rules is actually a good thing. I've been on here a few years now, but still a newbie compared to Melissa. I'm still learning things, trying things, and asking questions! It's part of the fun.

This probably one of the most time consuming challenges on this site. I know this from guest hosting 2 months over the summer. It is hard to keep up with the weekly sketches and keeping Page 1 current! The Bonus Sketches are just that, a bonus. Also, they will not be voted on. They are meant for extra scrappy fun. That's why they aren't posted on Page 1.

Hope that answers your question. Hope Mel is okay with me answering it.

Nope... they are bonus, and for sharing, basically. If I tried to keep up with all 8 sketches, once they are all posted, I would probably lose my mind! LOL. I don't think the bonus pages people post have ever been tracked on the front page.

Correct. You have until the last day of the month, 11:59pm.

Totally! Thanks, my friend!

I guess I should've read ahead to see if it'd already been answered. LOL.

So...I survived misting! Thank you, ladies for all of your help. I need some good sunlight for a nice photo of my layout, so I will try to take photos outside before I take my little one to see Clifford the Big Red Dog tomorrow evening. Nite nite.

I don't usually work off a sketch as sometimes they are just too amazing for my very novice and plain way of scrapbooking but I'm willing to try and go out of my comfort zone and participate in this challenge please.



FWIW, when I first started scrapping, I found the whole process easier when I used a sketch. Don't feel like you have to copy every element -- they give you some guidelines and help you place pics and embellies in a pleasing way. But you can stray away from a sketch as much as you want if you feel it's too complex.



Michelle- when I first started scrapping I hated sketches- wouldn't use them- how dare they reign in my creativity. But- I am scrapping 20 years worth of photos so needed to find a way to speed up my output & sketches were the answer. You can get as simple or as complex as you want. Sometimes I have to wait & see what a few people do with a particular sketch to really get the feel of it & make it my own. Think of them as a plan- not a rule- take the spirit of the design & go with it- stretch your creativity into new directions

Cute Christmas PJs By Arteshamac

Here is sketch #1...I added a heart after I realized that there was a twist. I uploaded the photo, but then I couldn't find that photo. Anyway, no twist:)
