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

As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Tya Smith  to our challenge!!

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

"Hello there! My name is Tya Smith and I am so delighted to be here! I live in beautiful Utah and am a wife and mom to 3 great kiddos who are growing up way too fast! I started scrapbooking when my oldest was born and she is now almost 21! I have had some wonderful opportunities come to me through this wonderful hobby, teaching at my LSS and designing for some of my absolute favorite companies – Echo Park, Carta Bella, Doodlebug Design and Lori Whitlock. I seriously love every avenue of paper crafting from layouts, to cards, to 3D paper crafts. Most recently, to make a dent in my humongous amount of photos, I taught myself how to digital scrapbook and I am hooked! I love how quick, easy and versatile digital scrapbooking is! I am lucky that so many of my favorite scrapbooking companies also offer their products digitally! I take it as a huge challenge to make my digital layouts look like paper layouts with lots of shadowing and layers. It’s so fun and addicting! I also love that sketches don’t have to be just for paper layouts! I used the sketches found here all the time! I’d love for you to stop by my blog and say hello! Happy Crafting! "

Here is Tya's layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Tya, we loved having you as our guest!

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

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by November 29, 2018 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!
