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

This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Jessika Lundman!!

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

"Hi! My name is Jessika but I go by the nickname mrssandman in the scrap world.   I live in a house with my partner and our two boys born in 06 and 10 in the northern Sweden.  My boys are my biggest inspiration and they are usually featured in my layouts.  I have been scrapping for nine years now and I just love it more and more each day!  My style is a combo between mixed media and very sharp and vivid colors.  I love taking a white background and build layer upon layer until a work of art reveals itself. On almost everyone of my creations there is black splatter.  I mostly make layouts but now and then I take on a 3D project.  I would love it if you took a peak at my blog and leave a comment"

Here is Jessika's layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Jessika! We just love your layout and how all of your elements pop off that white background!
Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by January 29th 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!
