Sketch 02-11 Reveal

Hi everyone! Great to see you today! Here is a brand new sketch for you to try!!

This one features space for patterned papers, and gives the opportunity for the addition of a little extra texture to "frame" the photos. Can you see the possibilities for pictures you have in your scrappy stash?

What fantastic work from our Design Team! We have digi, hybrid, and traditional scrappy LOs. We have shabby-chic, colour-blocked and feminine LOs. We have floral trimmed, flourished and linear LOs...  Fussy-cut, distressed and banner-sporting LOs... WOW!

Yep-- A little bit of everything makes S:CY what it is: a Blog where ALL styles and experience levels are welcome, a place to share and have fun while doing it.  I look forward to seeing what YOU'LL create with Sketch 02-11!

Hey everyone, I am going to have some fun today!!!

Be sure to make use of the new sketch (Sketch 02-11) and include a link to your LO, altered item, ANY hand-crafted item or card in our "Comments" section, below.

We will visit and leave you some "loves," PLUS, I will number each person as 1, 2, etc... as you post your link(s). Your name (changed to a number) will then go into the "hat" via to win a Ribbon PAK! (PAK= Playful Act of Kindness.)

YES! You can enter this part of the PAK fun more than once!! Each creation using Sketch 02-11 as inspiration nets you ONE ballot. 

Hmmmm.... OK: Let's make it a bit MORE fun! Wanna earn another ballot toward winning this ribbon PAK?

YES? FIRST: Be sure you've created a LO or any other crafty item using our Sketch as inspiration. Leave us a link.

THAT gets you one ballot for every item you create using the sketch.

THEN: Earn another ballot by doing all of the following things:

A) Post on your Facebook page about the S:CY Blog. SHARE our link:

B) Then "LIKE" the S:CY FB page HERE ( just tell me if you already have done so, I know u will be honest.)  

C) Become a "Follower" here at S:CY. (Look on the right in the sidebar.)

D) Post here in "Comments" letting us know you did these things.

I will draw a name, (ie- a number,) using on Thursday, April 14, 2011 at about 1 PM Atlantic Time.

The PAK winner will receive a ribbon-treat in the mail. Wanna play? You're very welcome to join in. (S:CY DT Members are not eligible for this contest.)

A big warm "Thank You" to the talented S:CY DT Members who played with Sketch 02-11 this week.
