As you know, for our November 1st challenge, we are once again partnering up with Scrap it with a Song,  they have chosen "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zepplin as their inspiration song (you can find out all of the details about how to play along with their challenge over on their blog). On our reveal date we shared how some of our team members played along with their inspiration song.  We are fortunate to have some of their team playing along with our sketch, and today we would like to feature them!

First, here is a reminder of what our sketch looks like:


 Now lets take a look at the SIWAS DT pages!

We want to show you how much we appreciate that you play along with us and share your designs and talent with us so we will be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!  For example, our chosen scrapbooker from our September 1st challenge will guest for our November 1st challenge!


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


This week we have another incredible guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Kareen Dion to our challenge site!!


I will let Kareen tell you a bit about herself....

"Hello! I'm Kareen or kjkareen on the "scraposphere". I'm a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful (of course) children. I'm from Quebec, Canada. I scrap since 2007 and never stop since. I don't think I have any particular style, but I can say I love watercolor. I'm a scrapaddict for sure, I love paper & badges (flair). Thanks Stuck?! Sketches for the invitation!"
 
Here is Kareen's layout based on our sketch
.

Thank you for joining us  Kareen, your layout is gorgeous!

For this challenge we are once again partnering up with Scrap it with a Song,  they have chosen "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin as their inspiration song, you can find out all of the details about how to play along with their challenge over o their blog.  Some of our team has chosen to play along, too!  So lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

Cassie 
I found this photo of myself when I was young with my grandmother. We lost her several years ago and I feel so lucky that I have this photo of us from a long time ago.

Dana
 I was inspired by the song lyrics "And the new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter."

 Devra 
 I was inspired by the first line of the song: "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold". I used gold glitter, and a photo of my Grandma, who always wore gold.


 Janice
 I used a line straight from the lyrics to "Stairway to Heaven" as my page title.


 Kumiko

Mandy
 I was inspired by the song title "Stairway to Heaven"... It made me think of my beautiful mother-in-law who is no longer with us and is now in Heaven. I was also inspired by the song lyrics "all that glitters is gold"... so I included a glittery gold title on my layout.

Sandy
 Molly took the Stairway to Heaven.

Sarah 
 Used the song title as inspiration

Laura
I did a little research to try to discern a little more about the meaning of the song so that I could use it for inspiration.  I read that Robert Plant said the song was about hope.  Although I did also read that he interprets it differently depending on his mood, hehe!  But for the purpose of this exercise we will go with hope. With a side of glittery gold!

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by November 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 for our team to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr. (Though we may not be able to comment in all forums.)

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!
