Sketch-y Friday and some Winners!

Hello and welcome to another edition of Sketch-y Friday!

Before we get started with our first sketch for August.... How about we announce some winners for July!

First up our Sketch-y Friday winner for July is Jes! Here is one of Jes' layouts ......

 ... isn't it so sweet.  I love the mix of patterned paper and that sweet photo! Congratulations Jes, you can email us at to claim your prize,  don't forget to grab our blinkie from the left hand side bar for your blog!

 And now for the Guest Designer position winner.  This person will be responsible for creating a sample with our August 16th sketch. Our winner for this month is Sandy Ross, Sandy is a regular participant in our Sketch-y Friday challenges, colour challenges and also our Kit Club challenges, she seems to be constantly striving to take her designs to the next level, and inspiring us along the way.  Here is a sample of her art...

Congratulations Sandy,  please email me here to get all of the information you will need to be our August Guest Designer.

Thank you to all of the talented ladies that applied to be a Guest Designer, we love it! There is just so much talent being shared here,  and we really hope you keep playing as we would love to have each and everyone of you join us as a GD over the next several months!

And now on to new news!  Here is this week's sketch.....

... our monthly double!  As you can see I am still trying to keep my goal of creating a 2 page sketch for the first one of each month.

Anita has created an amazing sample for you....

Now it's your turn!  Play along and share it with us!

Here is a run down of the rules.  We are offering a little prize to one lucky scrapper that participates in at least 2 of this month's 4 sketches.  Just link up your creations at the bottom of each Sketch-y Friday post, all qualifying scrappers will be entered into a random draw for a prize.  Only one entry per sketch please.  You have until Wednesday September 4th at midnight to participate in any of August's sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date!  But remember, you must play along with 2 different sketches for a chance to win!  (International participants may be required to pay some shipping fees. )

Also, would you like to be one of our sketch layout designers?  Each month we are going to offer one lucky participant the opportunity to create the reveal sample for one of our sketches!  So if you are interested in being considered, play along with at least two sketches and while you are linking up your creations add "GDT" after your name.  The only stipulation is that you must have a blog.

Thanks again to all of our participants, keep joining us and linking up as we love seeing what you create!

Now getting creating!   And thanks for visiting!

Thanks for visiting!
