It always amazes me how fast Sketch Week flies by. 

Here's a look at all the layouts together. I always think it's kind of fun to see how each one is similar yet so different.

Layout #2 - "Easter 2007"


Layout #3 - "Twisty Straw"


Layout #4 - "Carefree Sliding"


Layout #5 - "Sunny Day Walks"


Layout #6 - "Drew's Farm"


Layout #7 - "Notre Dame"


The winner of the copy of Sketches for Scrapbooking this month is...

Your sliding photos bring back memories from a long, long time ago when my Dad made a slide for me and my sister--about 1948. I loved it then and still remember it so well. Thanks for the memory.

and I'm not done yet. :)

You all left such wonderful comments throughout the week that I just couldn't stop at one giveaway. I am convinced that I have the best blog readers ever and I want to say thank you!

The next giveaway are these beautiful products from Pink Paislee, including some of the folded fabric strips and the cork circles similar to the ones that I used on my "Notre Dame" layout. Of course I had to throw in some pretty paper to go with it too!


This one goes to...

The colors in this layout are great! So stinkin' cute!

I've still got more!

I'm also giving away the tree mini album from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, that I used to make the tree on my "Drew's Farm" layout and some of the brads that I used to embellish it.


The winner of this giveaway is...

Oh man! That tree and those farm animals are just so stinkin' cute!! I predict a scraplift in my future...

Okay, don't go just yet. I've got another one!

Everyone really seemed to like the Memory Thread from DMC that I used on my "Easter 2007" and "Twisty Straw" layouts, so I thought that would make for a fun giveaway too. This one is an assortment of several different colors of Memory Thread.


And the winner of this one is...

I love how you have made another fun layout with the same sketch Allison :)
I was introduced to your sketches & blog through Fiskateers and I'm so glad. I'm loving how you can change the look using the same sketch AND how you use multiple photos!!! It is the fun everyday things that make life special but it is usually quite hard to make layouts of them without having to choose just 1 or 2 shots, so thank you for making scrapping easier & more fun too :o)

Those of you that won can email me at alidavis1919@hotmail.com to send me your address and Eulouise you'll need to let me know which volume of Sketches for Scrapbooking you would like. 

Thank you all so much for making Sketch Week such a fun time!

For the month of May, Sketch Week will start on Monday, May 10 and believe me you don't want to miss it. Since May is the month that is home to National Scrapbooking Day (even though Sketch Week won't fall on that day) we going to have extra fun. You have no idea what I'm going to give away or when AND I'm going to be using a sketch from our newest book, Sketches for Scrapbooking, Volume Six which isn't even available until July 1! I've got so many fun surprises planned, I can't wait! I promise it's going to be a great week! :)

Congratulations to the winners!
Allison, I really enjoyed this week's sketch variations and how-tos. I am an avid "Sketches for Scrapbooking" user, but these sketches weeks are really opening my eyes to the possibilites of one sketch! I am looking forward to the May sketches week and Volume 6 in July!

Thanks for such a fun week, this may have been the best yet!!

Christel said...

Congratulations to all the winners. That is so nice of you to give all that stuff away. Can't wait to see the layouts you come up with next month (my birthday month :) and I'm looking forward to seeing a sample from Book 6. I just ordered the first three books and the DVD over the weekend. I'm so excited and can't wait til they get here so I can start using them. :)

Congrats to the winners! I am a recent follower of your blog and I am so happy that you do this monthly! There aren't very many "2-page" scrappers and I LOVE YOUR sketch books and examples and tips. Can't wait to get some of your books.

Amy From KC said...

Congratulations everybody! And thank you Ali for such a great week chock full of ideas and inspiration. I love seeing all of the layouts together, they are all so different that it's inspiring. (Which is your point, right?!)

I can't wait for the DVD, and now I am looking forward to book 6. I'll be in Springfield in July, so I can pick that one up in person! :)

Luv2talk said...

I'll be looking for more sketches next month!

I'll keep my eye out for the memory thread too. Looks like something worth having in my stash!

Shari said...

Do you realize that you could easily compile all your "sketch week" blog posts into a full color idea book and sell millions? I think you oughta. Love what you are doing here for all of your blog readers. Awesome prizes also.

Congrats winners :) ... Allison, you are too sweet!

Congratulations to all the other winners!!! I was lucky too - THANKYOU Allison for your generousity in giving out so many lovely prizes :o)
Shari's idea is great & you should consider it - it is brilliant how you have made some many completely different looks from the same sketch!
I have been looking through past sketches and they are all great. Looking forward to NSD and your new sketches for May too :)

Allison Davis said...

Erica, I think I had read on the packaging or somewhere that it's used for jewelry making too. So you might check in the jewelry making section of a craft store. :)

Christel, I think I packaged your order yesterday! :)

Amy, looking forward to seeing you in July!

Shari, believe me, that thought has crossed my mind! :)

Thank you everyone! It's so great to hear that you are all enjoying sketches week as much as I do! :)
