December 15th 2014 Challenge a little Early, a SATW Co-Challenge and a GDT call!

Hello there!

We are surprising you by launching our December 15th challenge a few days early.  We wanted to give you a bit of extra time to play along, in light of the holiday season!  We are also doing a co-challenge with Scrap Around the World for this challenge, there are more details below about our partnership!


But first let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge.  A big thank you goes out to Big Picture Classes who is offering a $30.00 gift certificate to one lucky participant, in order to win this prize you must play along with both our sketch and the Scrap Around the World mood board, when linking up put SATW after your name so we know to include you in the draw.

We're here to help you tell your story and leave your mark in fun and meaningful ways. Scrapbooking is our lifeblood—it gives us our strength and vitality as a company. We recognize that there are as many creative pursuits as there are people. For this reason, we offer top-notch online education in a variety of fields and formats.

When you learn to value your unique perspective, your personal expression becomes art.
This is why we approach everything we teach with a guilt-free attitude that opens you up to inspiration in your everyday life and allows you to focus on what matters most. We view a successful class not by the mastering of a technique or by completion of a project but by the impact of the creative process—we view success as our students experiencing an "aha" moment or making a "big picture" connection that will last a lifetime.
 
AND thank you to My Scraps and More who are giving away a $15.00 gift certificate, and anyone that plays along with the Stuck?! Sketches December 15 2014 sketch challenge is entered into the draw for this prize! So that means we will once again have two prizes and two winners!
