Sketch Challenge layout received

Hello everyone

The first layout has been received for the current Sketch Challenge - my goodness that was quick Dale!!

I'm determined to go through my photo stash and put this one together as well - itching to do some scrapping now that Christmas is over and done with for another year.

Melinda from Scrapbookingncraft has kindly donated another $10 voucher from her online store as part of the prize pack - thanks Melinda - you're a treasure.

I'd like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and I hope that 2011 is full of happiness, laughter, joy and heaps of scrapping!!

Stay safe and take care, Ann xx

New Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and managed not to put on too many extra kilos with all of the yummy food!

I have a new sketch challenge for you. This sketch has been created by the talented Becky Fleck from Page Maps.

Ok, so we will close submissions on 23 January 2011 and then I will put up the layouts for voting for about a week. As usual, we will have a nice little prize pack for the winner.

So put your thinking caps on and start work on your layout - I might even have a go at this one myself!! I would love to see what you all come up with - sketches are a great resource for inspiration when we have that dreaded scrappers block! Just remember to use 3 photos.....

Enjoy the rest of your holiday break if you are lucky enough to be doing so - we have had a very wet Festive season here in Queensland - hopefully we will see some sunshine soon, but it is a great excuse to do some scrapping! :-)

Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Take care, Ann :-)

Whoo's just too cute?

Hello everyone

What a busy couple of weeks it has been preparing for my daughter's 21st Birthday - Mad Hatter's Tea Party theme and also for the Retreat this weekend. My poor house will hopefully be back to normal in the next couple of weeks in readiness for Christmas!!

We have received some great layouts from Marilyn in South Australia - thanks Marilyn! We hope that some of these help you to complete your own layouts using lots of photos. There are quite a few double layouts here that I have split so you can see them better.

And the winner is.......

Hello everyone
Well the voting is in for this Sketch Challenge, and the winner has been decided. The reasons why this layout was popular and received the most votes was for its close resemblance to the Sketch, the use and embellishment of the papers in keeping with the theme of the photos and the fact that it was a double layout.

So the winner is........Tina Parsons from Narangba, Queensland for her Snakes Layouts......

Congratulations Tina and well done! You have earned yourself a nice little prize as well as a $10 voucher from ScrapbookingnCraft who create some gorgeous chipboard laser cuts - I am sure you can do lots of creating with your prize. Please contact me to arrange delivery of your prize.

To all of the other ladies who submitted entries, thank you so much for doing so - they were all great layouts and I hope that you will continue to submit your multi-photo layouts to the blog and gain inspiration from others.

Challenge #1 update

Hi there
Well hubby & I have had an opportunity to get away for a week and will be away from the end of this week........sooo this means that I won't be around on the 14th to look at the votes for this current challenge and decide the winner. I thought of delaying the decision, but then I thought if I extended the challenge for a little longer it will allow a few more entries to come in as well to add to those that we have already received.
So, we will extend the challenge which will now close on 17 October; I will then post the submissions on 18 October, and we will make the decision on 25 October.....after I get back from the Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair.....on my goodness!!

Here is the sketch again that has been created by the very talented Valerie Salmon:

We have some great submissions so far; we would love to receive yours soon....and you can submit more than one layout if you wish.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Take care, Ann :-)

Here are some more layouts featuring 3 photos or more.

Remember to use photos of different sizes to achieve telling more about your event on the one page or double page spread.

Layouts submitted by Ann M.

Stamps are great for creating your own patterned paper

Microsoft WordArt is a very handy program to use for creating embellishments
to use on your layouts

Cork & corrugated board looks fantastic on masculine layouts

Metal & Mesh make masculine pages look really good
especially where vehicles are involved.
