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 Melissa Vining!

Here is Melissa to tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi I'm Melissa and I'm from Queenstown, New Zealand. I love playing along at Stuck?! Sketches and have been a huge fan of Laura's gorgeous sketches for many years. I'm married with three kids (8, 6 and 21 months) and I've been scrapbooking for nearly 8 years. I love capturing our family memories, and of course playing with pretty supplies! Traditional 12x12 layouts are my love, but I also make mini albums. My style is clean and fresh with extra added detail. I love machine and hand stitching, and I have a current obsession with gold colour shine! I'm blessed to be on several design teams. You can find me on my blog (, Instagram ( and YouTube Channel ( Thank you so much for having me as the Guest Designer for this reveal."

Here is Melissa 's layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Melissa!

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 2016 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.
