Love Is Sweet

Hi everyone!!!!! 
 Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!  I have a layout to share with you today 
that I created for sketch challenge no. 32 at Scrap Africa.

And here is the sketch designed by Marta.

I used papers and embellishments from Prima's Delight Collection along with lots of stamps, stencils, mists, paints, inks and Shimmerz Inklingz.  Will admit I was a bit of a nervous Nellie working on the background, but just went for it and love the end result!

Thanks for stopping by!

C'est Magnifique's August Sketch Challenge!

Today I have a layout to share that I created with the C'est Magnifique August kit, Beautiful Stories and the August sketch.

We would love to see YOU use our sketch as inspiration for a layout.  We have very few rules for our Sketch a matter of fact, we have just one rule.......we want your layout to resemble the sketch.  Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, but we do want to look at your layout and be able to see that you used the sketch.  Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking.

We will award two prizes for this sketch challenge.  The first prize will be a collection of paper, flowers, chipboard, and embellishments selected by C'est Magnfique's owner Deonna.  The winner of the prize package will also be able to shop in the C'est Magnifique Store, and have their purchases sent with the prize package, so that means you won't have to pay for shipping.  

Our second prize, a $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store,  will be awarded randomly to one of our participants who obviously uses one of our kits to create their Sketch Challenge layout. 

We will also chose 5 (or maybe more) layouts to feature on our blog!  
You have the entire month of August to submit your layout.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must be a follower of our blog.  It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog.  Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout  (not your general blog address). If you do not have a blog, you may link to an online gallery.

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, August 31, 2014 (US time).
Have fun with the sketch.  We can't wait to see how you use it!
