January 21st sketch challenge winner!

We had nine fantastic layouts linked up for our sketch this week! You ladies are seriously rocking the sketch, so much so that it was again difficult to choose just one winner. The design team debated and voted and finally came up with the layout we would feature this week.

Congratultions, Yasmina!  This layout is stunning, the paint, the layers, the stars and circles and inking, oh my!

Please send us an email at to receive the badge for your blog and for information on being a guest designer with us next month!

Thanks to everyone who played along, it was fun visiting all your blogs and see your wonderful creations!

Tuesday Sketch Challenge

This is the fourth Tuesday of the month and it's time for our first official double page sketch courtesy of Shelby!

We can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!  

First off we'd like to thank and introduce our first guest designer Raechelle Bellus! She won our Sneak Preview challenge and wow, she did not disappoint with this layout! It is gorgeous, but first here is a little more about Raechelle.

Hi! I'm Raechelle. I am delighted to have been selected as a guest designer! I live in Spokane Valley, WA. I work part-time in a lumber yard, which I enjoy very much. I have been scrapping for about 13 years now. I prefer to create everyday moments over events and have more of a girly style. Most of my layouts have distressing, sewing, butterflies, misting and twine on them. I enjoy reading and hanging out with my family.

Tracey - We are better Together

Phillis - Merry Christmas 2012  

Stephanie - Georgia Aquarium

Kel - My Super star

Tasha Key Flying High with Daddy

You will have until February 3rd at 8pm EST.  The winner will be invited back to be a future guest designer and everyone who plays will be entered into the random draw for the monthly prize.
