Monthly Reveal, Sketch-y Friday, a winner and a guest designer announcement, too!


Happy Friday and first day of November and boy do we ever have a lot going on, so grab a coffee and get settled!

First up is the usual first of the month reveal, this month  My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste Prash collection is featured.  It has fun fresh colours and is so gender neutral that it can be used for just about anything!

Life is Good - celebrating the everyday!
I matted my little patterned paper strips to ad contrast and definition.

I also used a contrasting ink colour to ink the edges of my papers for fun factor.  It is a super easy trick to change things up a bit.

Together - A boy and a dog

 On this layout I added some doodling for a fun contrast, and I journaled right onto my base paper, love th look though I do have to hold my breath!

I hand cut the salt and pepper element from one of the collection elements and layered them over a little cork heart from my stash.

Live in the Moment
I used a bold background paper for this last layout, which is not usual for me, but I really like the way it turned out, it provides great contrast for this black and white photo.

 I added some texture paste with a fun distressed circle mask and added a bit of colour to it using Mr. Huey's and a dauber.

I also created these little party treat boxes.

Next up, we should draw for a winner of our October Sketch-y Friday challenges.

Our winner for October is Mary P!   Congratulations Mary!  I thought I would share one of her layouts with you.

Congratulations Mary, you can email us at to claim your prize,  and 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  November 15th sketch. Our winner for this month is Barbara G.  We look forward to having you join us!  

Here is a sample of Barbara's art...

Congratulations Barbara,  please email me  to get all of the information you will need to be our November Guest Designer. 

And now on to this week's sketch.....

 Woo hoo!  I have another double for you!

It is my turn to create with the sketch, and I have worked on a bit more of my cruise album.

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 Friday November 29th at midnight to participate in any of November'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. )

New Information - Since we no longer offer a KIT CLUB SKETCH, Kit Club members that use their Kit Club products to enter these challenges, will receive two ballots for each layout you enter into the challenge, but remember you have to play along with at least  2 sketches to have a chance at winning a prize.
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 your creations in the left hand side bar, as we love seeing what you create!

Now getting creating!   And thanks for visiting!
