January 1 2018 Challenge Featured Layout #1

Now it's time for our first featured layout of the new year. But before we show you this inspirational page that was submitted to our January 1st sketch challenge, we want to recognize our sponsors.

A big thank you goes out to ScrapMatts for sponsoring this challenge. They are offering two large pieces of chipboard to one lucky participant.

ScrapMatts is a place to learn, share ideas and view some great design concepts, while offering Australian Made, Laser Cut Chipboard, original shapes and designs, made to compliment your scrapbooking pages or your card making projects.

AND thank you to SpiegelMom Scraps, who is sponsoring this challenge with the three new-for-January sequin releases and three yards each of the in-stock May Arts burlap string, all for a second lucky participant.

Hi everyone! I'm Jody Spiegelhoff, the proud owner of SpiegelMom Scrap (SMS). I live in Wisconsin, USA with my busy and crazy blended family. I’ve been crafting since childhood, and began stamping and scrapbooking in 2002. Creating has always been my quiet time and firmly believe that taking a little time each day to be creative is so important and good for our souls. I started SMS officially in 2010 and have loved growing my business ever since. I totally love creating unique sequin mixes which are inspired by a variety of things around me; nature, new scrapbook collections, artwork, my daughters and more. You can find SMS on Instagram @Spiegelmom_Scraps, on Facebook, YouTube and the website We'd love for you to stop by and check us out! The Sparklers Design Team and I love to read your sweet comments.

Raechelle is our featured artist today. Such sweetness! A sleeping baby surrounded by soft, pretty colors and fussy-cut flowers is so sweet it gives me a toothache. :-)

We are so glad you joined us, Raechelle. 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 January 29th at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes. All prizes will be drawn randomly using to pick a number.

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.
Janice :-)
