October 1st 2016 Challenge Reveal

Hello there!

We are launching a brand new sketch challenge today with our new team! But first a word about our generous sponsors for this challenge.

A big thank you goes out to May Arts Ribbon, for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to their online store to one lucky participant!

ay Arts was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler.
As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of qualityaffordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order.

AND thank you to Heartfelt Creations, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering a $25.00 gift certificate to their online store to a second lucky participant!

Heartfelt Creations is a family owned company started in 1997. We exist to dynamically inspire, uplift, and add value to each person that comes in contact with our creative inspiration and crafts. We do this with a unique line of coordinating artistic stamps, detailed dies and designer papers. Our products create timeless and elegant handmade cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art projects. We invite you to join our mission.  
ALSO, We want to show you how much we appreciate that you play along with us and share your designs and talent with us so we will be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!  For example, our chosen scrapbooker from our September 1st challenge will guest for our November 1st challenge!

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....

As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Alison Calicott to our April 1st challenge!!

I will let  Alison tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi! My name is Alison, although my friends call me Alz. I live in Melbourne Australia with my husband GB, and our two fur bags, Bear and Harry. Lately, life has been all about Harry. Hmm, that's not a bad layout title, "All about Harry" LOL! But I digress. Harry is seven months old and was rescued from a puppy farm. He came to us in very poor health and with severe behavioural issues. That was four months ago. His health and condition have improved and we are continuing to work with a behavioural specialist to manage his behaviour. He's doing very well at the dog club though and has progressed from puppy school to Class 2. He was only in Class 1 for two weeks. Aargh! See what I mean? I digressed! Life has become all about Harry!! About me .. I've been paper crafting since forever and scrapping for over ten years. I love, love, love going to a nearby dog beach when its sunny. Our local dog beach is spectacular and we can walk with the dogs for miles in peace and quiet. I enjoy reading, love going to the cinema, love cooking and baking with GB, and am studying mental health to work in the community sector. Oh and I really, really love taking scrapping, mixed media, and art classes with girlfriends. So that's me (and Harry LOL). Thanks Stuck?! Sketches for the opportunity to be a guest designer this month. Cheers!"

Here is Alison's layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Alison we love your page!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by October 29th 2016 at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using to pick a number.

When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard for our team to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr. (Though we may not be able to comment in all forums.)

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with other non-sketch challenges, such as colour challenges.

Please post a link back to Stuck?! Sketches on your blog entry for our challenge.  We would also love for you to share the sketch, too!
