February 15 2016 Challenge and Reveal

Hello there!

Wow, can you believe it is mid month already?  I am super glad that our winter here in my neck of the woods seems to be flying by! So, mid month means it is time for a new sketch challenge so let me tell you who our sponsors are for this challenge.

We are grateful for  Lindy's Stamp Gang, for being back with us and sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky participant!

Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki! Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!

AND thank you to ScrapMuch, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering a $20.00 gift certificate towards project kits (shipping not inclusive) to a second lucky winner!

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....



This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Debbi!!


I will let Debbi tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi, I'm Debbi Tehrani. I live in Frederick, Maryland, with Farzad, my husband of 35 years. We have no children, but we have two cats and two bearded dragons. One of the beardies accompanies me to school, where I teach fourth grade. 
I've been scrapping since 2000. I scrap 8 x 8, and I love telling stories on my pages and using elements that will help to tell my stories. For me, scrapbooking is a creative outlet and a way to capture and celebrate all the random little things that make my life special and meaningful. Recently, I have been creating pages for friends who have lost loved ones. 

I love a scrapbooking challenge, and I've been on a bunch challenge design teams over the years, including Creative Scrappers, How Much Is Too Much, Sketchabilities, Creative Prompts for You, Color Combos Galore, and Sketchbook365. I also designed for Work in Progress kits and was a designer and writer for Scrapbook News & Review. My pages have been published in Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooks, Etc., Simple Scrapbooks, and Scrap365, as well as several online publications. I'm currently on the 2Crafty Chipboard design team. I founded and create for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, a color challenge website. 

The internet has transformed my hobby from a solitary passion to one that I can share with online friends I have made all over the world. I met one of my best friends this way--she lives in England, and we scrap together every weekend via Skype, and she's even come to visit me twice! I love Stuck?! Sketches, and I'm so happy to have been invited as a guest designer! If you'd like to see more of my work, I'd love for you to come visit my blog, Little Scraps of Magic"

Here is Debbi's gorgeous layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Debbi!

Now lets have a look at our incredible DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by February 29th 2016 at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.

When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard for our team to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr. (Though we may not be able to comment in all forums.)

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with other non-sketch challenges, such as colour challenges.

Please post a link back to Stuck?! Sketches on your blog entry for our challenge.  We would also love for you to share the sketch, too!

Thank you for visiting, we cannot wait to see what you create!
Laura
