January 1 2016 Challenge

Happy New Year friends! It is so great to be sharing this wonderful day with you and a new sketch challenge, too!  We have two incredible sponsors offering to start your new year off with a bang, you just have to play along for your chance to win!

A big thank you goes out to Wycinanka, for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a beautiful prize pack to one lucky participant!

In a small factory at the foot of the Izera Mounains,
with passion and involvement, we create unusual products to handicraft.
In Wycinanka's offer you will find chipboards, stencils, stamps and ... just look at
sample prize pack!

AND thank you to ScrapMuch, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering a $20.00 gift certificate towards project kits (shipping not inclusive) to a second lucky winner!
ScrapMuch? is an online and mobile store, that specializes in event sales, retreats, crops and classes.  We offer great products at competitive prices, including a very economical kit club that is an exciting and affordable way to add to your scrapbook stash and inspire you to create.

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 January 1st challenge will guest for our March 1st challenge!

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 Julie Evers to Stuck?! Sketches!!

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

"I'm thrilled to have the chance to be a guest designer at Stuck!? Sketches are my favorite source of inspiration when I am having a hard time starting on a project. My name is Julie Evers. I live just southeast of Columbus, Ohio and have been scrapping for at least 16 years. I started with a little box of paper and expanded gradually until the dining room was converted into my scrap room. I have 3 wonderful children (23, 21 and 16) and a sweet husband who bring me joy and remind me of what's important on a daily basis. I started to scrap because I wanted to create albums for my children to share with their families in the future. That's still important to me, but now I scrap because I have learned that I am a happier person if I try to find a few minutes to create each day. I share my work on my blog, "Playing With Paper""

Here is Julie's fabulous layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Julie!

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!
