Sketch 6-13

Hi everyone! 
It's Friday and that means REVEAL DAY! But first, let's have a peek at the prize for this month!
Our prize for the month of May is a beautiful "My Acrylix" stamp set from Close To My Heart! It's called "Year 'Round Cheer." It was a Limited Edition set and is no longer available, making it highly desirable for your personal stamp collection!
This premium CTMH stamp set comes with a foam stamping sheet, a sturdy, handy snap-closed envelope, and TWELVE versatile acrylic stamps that are sure to make your scrapbooking & cardmaking projects shine.

Let's have a peek at the May prize, shall we? 
S: CY May Prize
 "Year 'Round Cheer" Stamp Set
The greetings on this stamp set are: Fresh Start; I Love You; Stay Lucky; Sing in the Rain;  Happy Mother's Day; World's Best Dad; Hello Sunshine; Back Yard BBQ; Back to School; Trick or Treat; Give Thanks; and 'Tis the Season. These are so cute- each greeting sports a cute icon depicting those words.
The winner of this set will be thrilled. :)

How do you win? 
Well, we will do things exactly the same way as we have done in other months!  
Here's an explanation.

How does the Challenge work?

We will draw for a prize at the end of EACH MONTH. There will be TWO layout  sketch challenges every month, so that means you'll have two chances to win the monthly prize. 

The amount of time you have to enter varies with each Challenge, so be sure to check carefully in the info on the Sketch you are creating your layout for. The due date will be CLEARLY NOTED for you. :) 


When a new layout Sketch is posted on the Blog, you will also see an inspiration piece accompanying the Sketch.

Three things make up an S: CY "Sketch challenge"... 
1) The layout sketch 
2) The inspiration photo
3) A Challenge described in words

What should you do for a chance to win the monthly prize?

1. Look at the layout Sketch and Inspiration photo. Read the challenge.
2. Check and write down the due date! It will be clearly noted in each challenge. (One challenge will be finished before the next one starts.)
2. Create a layout that fits the challenge.
3. Post your PAPER OR DIGITAL layout on your Blog and share it with us by the Due Date, using "Mr. Linky." Mr. Linky can be found at the bottom of the post, but ONLY until the due date! Once the due date passes, Mr. Linky disappears. 

What does the Team at S: CY do?
1. After links are posted, the S: CY Team will visit every one of them to leave some "love." :)
2. I will send you an "I Played Along..." badge to proudly display on your Blog! :)
3. I will compile a list of all the links to LOs for each Sketch Challenge into a permanent link list in a post on the blog. Each entry will be numbered in the order it was received. This number becomes the number that will apply to you in the prize draw. (Example: If you are the third person to post your work, yours will be link #3 in the list.) Then, if, using, your number (ie: "3") is drawn, you are the winner!!
3. We will do a PRIZE DRAW using at end of the month. Draw dates will be announced as each month starts.
