Imaginisce Sketch Challenge

Each month we'll be having a sketch challenge at the Imaginisce blog. The first one goes up today and was created by the fabulous Julie Bonner.

Just by popping over to Just Imagine and leaving a comment on the sketch, you can be eligible for a $50 prize package! Wait....there's more. If you leave a comment at each designer's blog, you get more chances to win.

Higher: Here's a layout of my little fellow swinging in the backyard. He constantly says, "Mommy, Can you swing me higher?" Sound familiar?




To stick with the theme of the paper and the photos, I added some mini folded paper airplanes and then stitched some loop-de-loops behind them. Fun stuff, hun?

As you can see, I grabbed my MM Slice Animal Crackers cartridge and Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder to create my layout. Soooo fun! The title is actually cut from Imaginisce packaging. Thrifty.

Don't forget to leave comments at Imaginisce's blog and at each designer's blog to get 17 chances at winning the $50 prize package. Good luck! I'm rooting for ya!

Oh, and this is a challenge. So create your own layout based on the sketch and post it at Imaginisce and you could win a prize package for that, too! Can't wait to see what YOU create.
