~ August Sketch Challenge ~

Hi Everyone! Christine here to share with you but wait....CAN you believe it's that time again? I feel like we just got done with July's sketch challenge and here we are at it again with more sketches AND more chances for our fans to win more prizes! Alright, so let's get to it! This month we used a sketch designed by Page Maps

And here's what our awesome Design Team made for us to be inspired from:


Kim used an awesome combination of the MME Lush papers.


Pattern papers- Graphic 45 and Studio Calico; journal spot- K&Co; ribbon- Offray; ink, buttons, punch- Stampin up; chipboard letters- American Crafts


Jessie used Studio Calico for the background, yellow C'oredinations cardstock, MME good day sunshine for the flags, and accent pieces, Lush by MME for the photo mats, K Andrew Designs Twine, and October Afternoon Rubons for the letters. She also used brown and white gel pens and a button.
Visit Ashley's blog (marklandandmain.blogspot.com) to see her list of supplies AND to participate in her prize giveaway for entering into this sketch challenge :)


Heather used Fancy Pants Wishful Thinking, MME Lime Twist, Sew Easy for the stitching and some scallop punches.
