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. At the start of each month I will post a series of sketches. You will have UNTIL THE CLOSING DATE OF THE CHALLENGE to complete, upload & share your scrappy creations w/the rest of us!!
**This Challenge will now end @11:59pm sb.com time on the last day of each month.

3. Any type of LO, whether traditionally made w/paper or digitally created, that is 6x6 or larger is welcome!

4. Players may join at anytime during the month and DO NOT have to complete all of the sketches posted.

5. 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.

6.BONUS SKETCHES!~Wednesday is now Bonus Sketch Day!! That means I will post an additional sketch 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.
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. (please increase the size of the image to Large to make it easier to see)
5. Go to Challenge
6. Go to any Reply Box and RIGHT CLICK and then PASTE the code.



~WELCOME & HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!!

FYI: Made a couple changes this month in an effort to help me better keep up w/running this challenge. Going to give a shot at posting all the sketches for the month at the start of the challenge, except the bonus sketches, and see how that works out. That way I'm not stressing over missing any postings, and you will all have an idea at the start of the month which sketches we will be working with. I will also no longer be posting all the participant's LO's on the front page of the challenge thread anymore. However, I think I'm going to reserve the right to highlight a few different players LO's each month that I think are either solid examples of the sketches given, or that are an interesting/out-of-the-sc rappy-box take on the sketches posted, so you will still have the opportunity from time to time, to be featured on the front page of the challenge.
I sincerely hope these changes will improve the running of this challenge as well as all of your experiences participating in it!

Now to pick out our sketches!!!

So, anyone else scrapping 2nite? If so what are you working on??

I am so excited to finally be working on a project again after a 6 month hiatus, lol!! Getting back into my scrappy groove w/a project for my heritage album using pics I recently acquired from my mom of my dad's parents when they were young & in love....*thinking to self: that would actually make a great title for the LO I'm working on*...

Now 2 check out the challenge forums 4 August. BBL

Yes Jami - 230 cards I can't let myself about it- we do things that maybe we normally wouldn't if we are trying to get our business off the ground... which is what I'm doing.

Going to print sketches out & if it works I can do one or 2 I'll have them handy

I'm scrapping tonight. Printing pictures right now.
Not sure which challenge I will start with - I am popping with ideas which must be why I have such a rotten headache I couldn't go into work.
Yeah yeah I know - why am I working on this? 'Cause I am so excited!


Oh and Jamie you were missed and it is great to have you back. Those photos you acquired sound wonderful. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

You're so sweet Mary, thank you for your kind words, I truly have missed scrapping too and am grateful to finally have my new crafting/scrapping spaces set-up and organized to the best of my ability, lol. Which reminds me I need to take a few new pics of my new space...and I am very happy to be able to finally get back to scrapping again!

***BTW, I finished up the 1st new LO for my Family Heritage Album & posted it to my gallery last night if you're curious to see. It's titled Young & In Love.***

I've been super slow lately, but the other day I did something like 4 or 5, just one after the other.

Yesterday...ONE..."might" be done...more than 6 hours of scrapping...ONE..."might" be done..

jci...thought I'd share the few pics I took of my newly organized scrap & crafting space I finally set up for myself in our new apt...in case anyone was interested to see. Don't have everything completely unpacked yet, but what I use the most is within reach or nearby, so I'm good to go for now. I'm thrilled to have a large enough MBR in our new place to set up a decent sized workspace and not have to have it all cluttering up my living room anymore. : )

Well, since my plans 4 today didn't happen due to my alarm not going off when I needed it to...I'm staying home & making today my scrap & laundry day. Lord knows I've got plenty of both piled up, lol!

Anyone else planning on scrapping the night away? I might even attempt one of the sketches I've posted...we'll see, lol!!

Jami, in response to your comment - yes, the "dog days" layout started from sketch #3 (not 2 - I have something else cooking for the second) - the framing around the page, the thinking bubble with journaling, the spiral notebook punch, the under-layers.... well, that's where it ended though LOL))

Beautiful Day By Scrapanda

and this one is the sketch again but just for sharing - I actually did this one a couple days before August 1 when I was making examples for the August music challenge and had looked through some old page maps sketches for my inspiration. Thought it was funny that a few days later it was posted as one of the sketches for here!

Hey there! I have been away getting my beach on but had this one in the works before I left.

This two pager uses 2 sketches - the left side is for sketch #1 and the right side is for sketch #3.

Hope that is ok to combine them this way.
