Congratulations, Karen! Drop me a line with your mailing address to sue[AT]canadianscrapbooker[DOT]ca and I will get your goodies out to you!

Last month, I asked previous winners to email me if you were still waiting for a prize from me - my planner (with my blog prize list of winners and addresses) had taken an unexpected bath!  The good news is that I have sent out prizes for Michelle, Karrie and Rebecca!!  I am still waiting to hear back from Sarah and Rhea… if you know them, please pass along the message!

Thanks again to all who played along!  There's still time to play along with the May challenge - you can find it here!

May 2015 Sketchy Challenge

Welcome to another Sketchy Challenge!  Here's my sketch for May 2015 - I hope you find time this month to play along!  You can also see my sketch in the CS Sketchy Gallery here.


You may recognize this sketch from a layout that I did for our Forrest Gump inspired issue in the Summer 2013 issue.  With the popularity of pocket scrapbooking gaining ground in the industry, making memory keeping easier to fit in our busy lives, I thought the sketch for this layout would work well for both types of scrapbooking (pocket page and traditional).

My layout used several library-tupe pockets to hold hidden journaling, but in the sketch, i've added photos and one hidden pocket for journaling (see top right rectangle).


Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Canadian Scrapbooker SuperStock; Fancy Pants patterned paper, stickers, transparent owl, felt star and rub-ons; Maya Road sheet bird & ticket; Martha Steward Crafts, EK Success and McGill punches, Martha Stewart Crafts scoring board (for pockets); American Crafts and Lily Bee alpha stickers; Scenic Route, Heidi Swapp and unknown chipboard pieces; 7 Gypsies and Recollections paper/fabric tapes; The Twinery twine, Memento ink; KI Memories acrylic tile; Making Memories metal tag; Stockade wooden dragonfly, Sakura marker; Pea Sarah font; Scrapbook Adhesives tape runner and 3L Dodz; KaiserCraft & Heidi Swapp bling; Imaginisce stamp; miscellaneous buttons.

You can see more detailed photos and comments on my original blog post.

Hopefully you find some time this month to play along!  Again, please head over to the Sketchy gallery and get inspired to create your own layout!  You can use the sketch as is or as a springboard for your project - the choice is yours!

{RAK ALERT!}
If you play along with the sketch this month, upload your layout in the gallery into the May 2015 Sketch section HERE, and then in your comment below, add a link to that layout, by 11:59 pm on May 31st, 2015.  On or around June 1st, 2015, I will randomly draw a winner from the comments here of those who participated, for a prize!

**PLEASE NOTE:  In order to qualify for a chance to be published in an upcoming issue, your layout must be posted in the online gallery by May 31st, 2015.  To qualify to win MY prize, you must add a link to your layout BELOW, using the inlinkz tool, by May 31st, 2015!
