I'm changing up this blog a bit! I'll be posting sketches but there will be a twist! You have to BLEND the sketch with a song! I love listening to Sirius radio and The Blend station plays a wonderful "blend" of great songs! So I'll be posting a layout and card sketch ON THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH, and along with it 5 songs to choose from to inspire you. You can let the title inspire you or choose a stanza from the song, or even let the theme of the song inspire you!

WOW!!!! My Counter has gone past 10 000!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!!! Amazing! I am so excited!!!

So, you know what THAT means!!! A blog contest is in order, to celebrate!!!

Here's what I have to offer so far...
Here's what I want YOU to do:
1. Choose a layout and/or card sketch from my blog to create a layout and/or card. It has to be a new project created for this contest. (You CAN combine it with other challenges on other blogs or forums, though. I don't mind.)
2. Post the sketch AND your project on your blog and create a link back to my sketch blog.
3. Tell others why you like my blog or sketches (for an extra ballot, not compulsory!!)
4. Come back here and leave a link to your blog post in the comment section.
5. HAVE FUN scrapping layouts and/or making cards!!!

You can enter as many times as you like, but each sketch and project has to be in a seperate blog post. I will base your entries on the number of posts you make with my sketch and blog link in it.

The contest starts TODAY and will end March 7th, so you have 2 weeks to go crazy using my sketches!!!

Here is #3 LO created with a "Deanne Sketch!" http://lovinglycreatedbyali.blogspot.com/2009/02/new-lo-swing.html

I loved the triangular element here, 'cause it allowed me, for SOME reason, to feel great about using a floral on a little boy's page! LOL: Silly me. :O) TYFL and TY Deanne for a GREAT sketch!

Here are my Los #4, #5 and #6 created with "Deanne" sketches. I realize this counts as ONE post as they are all in ONE blog post (oops) But That's OK! I had so much fun! I also mentioned WHY I liked each sketch, for the readers who may be interested in trying them! Also posted a note with the LOs when I put them up at SBCH so that ppl knew where I had found the sketches I'd used as inspiration. Anywhooo, Deanne, here is that big ole' Blog post of mine, http://lovinglycreatedbyali.blogspot.com/2009/03/march-first-is-special-day.html It features the Just my Sketches (Deanne's) layout sketches from Dec 1, Dec 15 and Feb 7
