Sketch Week - Wrap Up and Winners

Another Sketch Week has come to an end and the excitement for the next one can begin. Before I get into that here's a look at all the layouts from the week together.

The Sketch, from our DVD - Stretch Your Scrapbooking, that I used as the starting point for all five layouts.

"My Happy Place" - The layout that the sketch was based off of.


#1 - "More Than Sisters"


#2 - "Lovable, Sweet Chewy"


#3 - "The Word Nerd"


#4 - "Arnall Tradition"


#5 - "Balloon Boy"



The winner of the Sketches for Scrapbooking giveaway is...

Love all the stars! I have to do a 4th of July layout in the next week or so. Think I'll keep this sketch in mind when it comes up. :)

Congrats to both of you! You'll need to email me at alidavis1919@hotmail.com with your shipping info. :)

Now let's talk a little about August Sketch Week. Before I had scheduled Sketch Week as the second week of the month but I was confusing myself. For example, if the first day of the month fell on Thursday of one week did that mean that the next week was the second week or should it be the week after that since it would have technically been the second full week of the month. Anyway, from now on Sketch Week will always fall on the second Monday of the month.

Mark your calendars for August 9th! I'm not giving any sponsor hints this time because I'm pretty sure any hints would totally give it away. In the email I received from the August sponsor I was told that "it will be a great prize that anyone would be happy to win!" and believe me, knowing exactly what the giveaway is...wowza! Let's just say they are being very generous! AND since this will be the first Sketch Week following CHA the giveaway is their newest products.

I'm looking forward to it! :)

Thanks again for the sketches. I scraplifted the "Chewy" layout and it is so darn cute. We have a border collie and our grandson was wearing orange so the colors were perfect.

I anxiously await August sketch week.

Already looking forward to August! I now have 10 (count em, 10!) double layouts in progress thanks to your sketch books. The ideas you share have increased my scrap productivity in a big way. Now, once I get my photos printed and complete them with embellies, maybe I will be brave enough to share.

Hope you and your family are enjoying the summer!

Congrats to the winners! Always love Mondays and seeing all of the layouts together. Still can't get over how the pics pop off the page in the Arnall Tradition layout. Looking forward to August 9th!

Hey Ali,
I've been putting together many of your page kits while sitting with my 4year old in the hospital. He had surgery for a his ruptured appendix. It's been great to have your kits to keep me busy. I just threw my cutter, scissors, corner rounder, adhesives and distress ink in a bag. It's nice being able to tote a small bag instead of my huge xxl and all my other scrap pin' gear. Thanks Shari

So excited about August sketch week, I will definitly have to mark my calendar cuz I have my third baby due on the 17th! Can't wait to see the sponsers and what they are giving away!

Thank you for a great sketch week, Ali! This month's sketch was so great - easily customized and flexible in its intricacy. Congratulations to the winners of this month's drawings, and enjoy your prizes! It was so nice of Pink Paislee to donate a prize, and of course a new sketch book from SG is always a perfect treat.

Looking forward to next month!

Thank you guys so much for all the wonderful comments. It tickles me pink that you all don't get tired of my ramblings because I love doing Sketch Week so much!

Michele, I hope to see them!

Connie, I can't believe school is starting so soon! Drew is starting his first year this August. I'm so excited and scared all at the same time! :)

Luv2talk, I love the word SCRAPAGANZA! lol!

Shari, sending some get well wishes for your little one. Seeing your kiddos sick and in a hospital is not a pleasant experience. I'm so glad the books are helping you pass the time. :)
