October 15th Challenge

Hello there!

It's the middle of the month and that means it is time for a new sketch challenge! But first let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge.

A big Stuck?! Sketches thank you goes out to Lindy's Stamp Gang for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering  A $25.00 gift certificate to their online shop to one lucky participant!

 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!

Our October 15th guest designer is Sue Smith please help us welcome her to Stuck?! Sketches!!


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

"Hi, My name is Sue. I live in the north of New Zealand and have been a scrapping addict for about 14 years :). My main subjects are my five beautiful grandchildren, still all under 5 years old. Thanks to iPhones I never have a shortage of photos and get them sent to me daily from snap happy parents! I love to try different scrapping styles, but I nearly always start with the photo as my focus and then look for supplies and a great sketch. You can see more of my projects on my blog here: http://patriciasue.blogspot.co.nz"
 
Here is Sue's incredible layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Sue!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Stephanie Berger to our October 1st challenge!!


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

"Hi, my name is Stephanie and i am paper- and photo addicted.  Everywhere i go i take the camera with me - always looking for a great story to tell or a good picture that shows all the adventures we have.  So there is always enough stuff to scrap about ;-)  I love challenges - sometimes it give you the kick if creativity is missing - and it definitely helps you to leave your comfort zone while trying something new.  I am a scrapbooker for about 11 years now - and it never gets boring.  My Blog: http://creativebysteffka.blogspot.de/"

Here is Stephanie's fabulous layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Stephanie, we love your layout!
