The learning process has been fun and interesting too. Also love needlepoint, sewing, knitting, crochet and taking lots of photos. Family and friends are the subjects of my scrapping. Glad to be a guest designer here and I enjoyed using Laura's sketch for inspiration"

Here is Bev's layout based on our sketch.



Thank you for joining us Bev!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in the order that they turned in their pages!)....





 





 

 
 


We are partnering up with the Red Carpet Studios  challenge team,  who are also playing along with our sketch on their site.  The lovely Ashley from Red Carpet Studios has challenged us to add a Christmas Tree to our layouts. So while you are hopping around checking out our DT creations, be sure to visit the  Red Carpet Studios site.  If you add a Christmas tree to your layout b sure to link it up over there as well for your chance at a prize from them.


Please note you do not need to use a Christmas tree or do a holiday page for our challenge, but of course you are welcome to.

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by December 29th, 2013 to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org 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 later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with no more than one other non-sketch challenge, such as a colour challenge.

Thank you for visiting, we cannot wait to see what you create!
