October 15th Challenge

Hello there!

It's the middle of the month and that means it is time for a new sketch challenge! But first let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge.

A big Stuck?! Sketches thank you goes out to Lindy's Stamp Gang for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering  A $25.00 gift certificate to their online shop to one lucky participant!

 Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki! Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!

As always, we will be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!  For example, our chosen scrapbooker from our October 15th challenge will guest for our December 15th challenge!

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

Our October 15th guest designer is Sue Smith please help us welcome her to Stuck?! Sketches!!

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

"Hi, My name is Sue. I live in the north of New Zealand and have been a scrapping addict for about 14 years :). My main subjects are my five beautiful grandchildren, still all under 5 years old. Thanks to iPhones I never have a shortage of photos and get them sent to me daily from snap happy parents! I love to try different scrapping styles, but I nearly always start with the photo as my focus and then look for supplies and a great sketch. You can see more of my projects on my blog here:"
Here is Sue's incredible layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Sue!

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

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by October 29 2017 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!

Thank you for visiting, we cannot wait to see what you create!
