Hey ladies and gentlemen - you can play along with our prompt challenge this month, as well as this sketch challenge until the end of the month.  Don't be shy, we love to see everyone's work here.  

Here is our sketch challenge for April - come play along!!! Use the sketch as inspiration for your creation! You can combine it with the prompt challenge anytime and enter it into both challenges if you wish.

Our sponsor is Scrapbook Fantasies, owned by design team member Alicia Redshaw. Alicia will send a beautiful pack of ribbons to a randomly drawn participant.  


We will feature our favourite layouts from both of our March challenges early in April on the blog.  We are always looking for guest designers, and often choose from amongst participants.
