Let's get sketchy!

It's time for a new challenge and we've got a sketch to share this week. Remember that a sketch is just a jumping off point - feel free to interpret it any way you see fit as long as we can recognize that you used the sketch for the basis of your project.

Also, a quick reminder to all - Close To My Heart products must be used in our challenges. It does not have to be 100% CTMH, but the majority must be. Thank you.

Now, before we get to this week's challenge and the DT eye candy, let me welcome Diane Cook as our prize sponsor this week! Diane will be awarding the following prize to one randomly selected player from this week's challenge:

Please stop by and visit Diane and leave her a little lovin' for being our sponsor this week! Her blog is at Our Scrapping Life. Thanks Diane!

Ok, now onto the reason you're here! Our challenge for the week is based on the following sketch:


And here are the Design Team's fabulous creations:














I know! Aren't they all sooo pretty? But we know you can create something just as awesome and we want to see! So follow along with our sketch, then post your finished artwork on your blog, or in another public gallery and then come back and leave us a link so we can visit you and see your interpretation. the deadline to enter is Sunday night at 10:00 pm EST. You might win the prize package from Diane or even be in our weekly Friday Five!

Be sure to spread the word about our challenge blog to everyone who loves CTMH! The more, the merrier! And watch for a Facebook and Paper Craft Planet announcement and prize opportunity later this week. We have a group at both places and we would love to have you join us - and post your artwork there too! Let's share the CTMH love!

Have fun creating!

Deneen said...

Yup, it's early here too Christine! I was waiting for my daughter to get home from the ER...she has a bad bladder infection...so I thought I'd check to see if the challenge was up, and sure enough...so off I went to play while waiting.

Thanks again for another great challenge.
