August 15 2016 Challenge Featured Layout #1

Today's featured layout is based on our August 15th sketch, and we think you'll go gaga over it. But before we show you today's inspiration, we want to recognize our sponsors for this challenge.

A big thank you goes out to Lindy's Stamp Gang for sponsoring our challenge one $25.00 gift certificate to their online shop.
 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!

AND thank you to Evalicious, who is sponsoring this challenge with a $20.00 gift certificate to their online shop.

Evalicious is also offering a 15% discount to all of our readers, use the code LAURAWHITAKER15 to save on your next order, during the term of this contest.

Shinko is our featured artist today. We think she used the perfect colors, patterns, and embellishments to set off this sweet baby photo. It's light and airy, yet full of texture and eye candy.

We are so glad you joined us, Shinko. Please grab our "featured" button below and wear it on your blog.
Here's another look at the sketch:

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by August 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!

Thank you for visiting us today. We hope our sketch inspires you. Be sure to show us what you've made because we love to see your work and hand out prizes.
