September 1st Challenge and Celebration!

Hello there!


It's here, it's here, our anniversary celebration is here! I am so thrilled and humbled that each of you and our incredible Design Team have Stuck?! by me for the last year, as I took on this new adventure!

It has been so much fun and I have learned so much.  I am always so inspired by your creativity and willingness to share.

I am grateful for each and every one of our sponsors this last year, who have provided sweet bonuses for your creativity.

**********

Before I share the new sketch challenge and our DT reveals,  let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge, I know you will be blown away!

A big thank you goes out to the following companies for sponsoring our September 1st Anniversary challenge!

 ScrapMatts is offering an incredible $50.00 gift card!
http://scrapmatts.ning.com/
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.

Lindy's Stamp Gang is offering a $35.00 gift certificate, to their store!
http://www.lindystampgang.com/
Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more!
Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki!
Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!

http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/
We're here to help you tell your story and leave your mark in fun and meaningful ways. Scrapbooking is our lifeblood—it gives us our strength and vitality as a company. We recognize that there are as many creative pursuits as there are people. For this reason, we offer top-notch online education in a variety of fields and formats.

When you learn to value your unique perspective, your personal expression becomes art.
This is why we approach everything we teach with a guilt-free attitude that opens you up to inspiration in your everyday life and allows you to focus on what matters most. We view a successful class not by the mastering of a technique or by completion of a project but by the impact of the creative process—we view success as our students experiencing an "aha" moment or making a "big picture" connection that will last a lifetime.

So there you have it, 6 incredible sponsors and prizes, and that means 6 winners! Woo hoo!

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....


Lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals using amazing chipboard accents, sent to each of us, courtesy of ScrapMatts, thank you Sofie we appreciate you!











We hope you re now inspired to create and play along with us!  Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by September 29th 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 to find your layout later in the month, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with other non-sketch challenges, such as colour challenges.

Please post a link back to Stuck?! Sketches on your blog entry for our challenge.  We would also love for you to share the sketch, too!

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