December Imaginisce Sketch Challenge

Yes, it is that time again. It is time for the monthly sketch challenge from Imaginisce. I just love working with sketches and this one is done by DT member Liz Qualman. So if you follow the Imaginisce blog you know that they give away a lot of prizes and this month is no different.

Here is my interpretation of the sketch. I altered it a bit and made a two page layout out of it.


This is my youngest son playing in the snow. The thing that makes this so special is that it is a RARE treat that we have snow here in south Louisiana. Especially snow that actually sticks to the ground and they can play with it. Here he is making a "snow kid" out of the snow. He said since the snowman was close to his size that it was a "snow kid" and not a man.


Close up of the title here. I used the cricut cart Accent Essentials with the blocked out snow flakes, and some American Crafts fabric thicker letters. I also sprayed a bit of the marshmallow colored glimmer mist on the "snow" letters. In person it just looks a little shimmery, but you may not be able to see that in this picture.


Here I used the cottage Christmas accents snowflake crystals and layered it with the Cottage Christmas snowflake glitz.

And here is the sketch:

So here is the drill....on how to win:

We wanted to see how clever you can all be with banners, especially since banners can be made from a variety of things, flags being only one. The Imaginsice DT created some amazing layouts for today's BLOG HOP! So hop on over to each of the team members listed below and leave a comment at each stop. You'll be entered to win a great prize package. Deadline for the comment winner is Monday, Dec 6th.

And don't forget to enter this month's sketch challenge and you could win a $75 prize package (see details below)!! Deadline for the sketch challenge is Dec. 25th.

Below are links to the other Design Team members blogs for some blog hop fun...


Post your sketch on your blog or online gallery AND then come back on the Imaginisce blog and list your link via our new inLinkz on the Imaginisce blog. Since this new LINK service shows a picture, please make sure you link to the post with your layout and not just your blog. We will select a winner to be featured on our blog at the end of the month. And of course, that means you could win your choice of the i-top Tool package, i-rock package or a $75 prize Collection package! Deadline to enter the sketch challenge is Dec. 25th (Christmas day).

So get busy and scrap some of those pictures you have been wanting to.....

I love your take on the sketch! I would have never thought to use red on a snow page, but it looks awesome, really makes the photos pop.

Michelle said...

This is really cute!! I like the "snow kid". I like your snowflake banner. Hope you are staying warm. I hear you had some frost last night. Atleast someone I know that is on the north side of Lake P. did. Nothing compared to up here in WI.. negative temps for us.. days of it too! Nothing like January weather starting in November for us!
