One more!

Okay...this is the last sketch of the crop!  I do have one more I'm going to go back and post (Susan's) that didn't make it up but going to give that a bit before I do....

This sketch/inspiration/challenge is from Lee!!!

And of course her inspiration...
Now for the challenge!

You must incorporate rub-ons, flowers and the color yellow.

Still going strong!!!

Okay....next up is Jule's sketch/inspiration/challenge!

And here is her layout!

And how about a little challenge....

....you know I LOVE patterned paper....and I know that cardstock is a staple...and I used it too, but on this layout it is ALL pp!! So...that is my challenge....you can use NOOOOO cardstock on your layout!!! ONLY pp and elements!

That is going to be FUN!

How about another one!

The boards are up again (but some folks are still having a hard time getting in...if you will respond here we will try to send you a reactivation email and see if that helps!  It has helped a few folks!)

BUT just in case we will keep posting the sketches here!

Here is Holly's!

You could easily make this a 2 photo!
Here is Holly's example...

And now the challenge!

Holly used MINIMAL colors on this layout to make the focus on the picture!!! I love that....so your challenge is to use a SOLID background (no pp) and use ONLY 3 other colors but they must be used SPARINGLY!!! Have fun!

We have two more sketches for you today!!!!

Time for another Saturday Sketch!

This time it is April....check this out....

And here is her beautiful inspiration!

And I'm sure you all wanna know her challenge!

Red and green are traditionally Christmas colors. But if you add a pop of yellow and white, they look great on a summer LO, like mine! What colors do you think would look great with red and green?

My challenge to you is to use the color combination of red and green on a non-Christmas L.O.!  Have fun!

Let's get to creating!

Teresa's Sketch/Inspiration/Challenge

Here is what Teresa shared.....

Her inspiration....

Oooohhhh....and her challenge

1st:I want to see you use a question for your title. This can be a long title like mine or a one word title...as long as there is a question mark!
2nd: I want to see the color purple on your page purple seems to be an often forgotten color when it comes to scrapping (I had to dig through my garage sell pile to find purple or this page ) So I want to see at least some pops of purple.

Okay...have fun ladies!  There is one more sketch/layout from yesterday and I'm working on getting it for ya!

Stacy's Sketch/Inspiration/Challenge

Even our guest designer busted out a sketch for us! Check this out...

And here is the inspiration....
And of course...a challenge!

Uuse 5 different fonts in your title!!!

Ohhh...isn't that fun!

Haydee's Sketch/Inspiration/Challenge

Hi guys!  Going to post the sketches/Inspiration/Challenges from yesterday in case someone missed out!

Here is Haydee's awesomeness...

And here is her inspiration....
Of course...not least the challenge!

I want to see you use 5 different kinds of flowers. They can be handmade or purchased - but must be 5 different styles.

First Sketch for Saturday

Hi guys!  You might have noticed that the boards are down but that does not mean WE are down!  HA!  The fun WILL continue!!!  You can either come here or to our Facebook Page and continue to be inspired by our wonderful DT and staff!  Remember you have until July 28 to have your layouts uploaded to our gallery and linked to the post (we are certain the site will be back up by then!)

Without further delay the first sketch for today comes to us from Carla!

and here is some eyecandy she created with the sketch

Now for her challenge!
As you know, I LOVE white space.If you want to use my sketch "as-is", include white space and one photo only.

As an additional challenge, you can use this "recipe" for another layout:

A - variety of sizes of ALPHAS for your title
C - at least 4 different COLORS in your patterned paper

See you in a bit with another sketch and more inspiration!
