It's crop time again!

Join me tonight at 9pm EST for a sketch challenge in the chatroom! You'll find the sketch below, so start thinking about the photos and products you will use and join me, where you will be challenged to create a layout based upon this sketch.

Not sure how to use sketches? My sketches usually show the basics -- where you might place your photos, titles and/or journaling, and sometimes some extra elements (like paper, ribbons, etc.). Love to use lots of embellishments? No problem -- add 'em in! Want to add a photo or use less? Go for it! There is no right or wrong way to complete them! Simply use the sketch as a guide.

Still have some questions about using them? No problem! We'll help you every step of the way!

See you tonight in the chatroom!

I really like the sketch challanges, they give a good starting point so that I don't have to spend so much time looking at a *Blank Canvas*.

This sketch makes me a little nervous, though. It is quite different from my usual style of scrapping. I have seen pages like this, but have never done one before.

Well, I will give it a try. It will probably be good for to try to "scrap outside my box".

I better get started now so that I can be done by 10pm. Sometimes I feel like the world's slowest scrapper!

Setting my clock now as a reminder, just in case I do forget between now and then, not that I would do such a thing but just to be sure ;).

To have a friend is to have a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold and an extra pair of legs when yours are too weak to stand alone...

I have been living buried in books and writing classes... as an added note I must say that it is rather scary when you start dreaming and all you can see within your dreams is words floating everywhere!

I love the sketch and have several ideas for using it. Going to try to get one (or more?) done before the crop starts. Hope to be there.

Ok, I admit it, I'm a Scrapaholic. I'm new to digital but loving it. This sketch is fantastic and I couldn't stop myself. I did a LO for each of our kids. Here they are:

Sorry I missed the crop, guys! I was diligently working on my layout, and COMPLETELY lost track of the time!

Anyway, thanks for the great sketch, Brandie - it was a good challenge.

Here's my layout!

Hope you enjoy it! I'm getting ready to head over to the gallery now and see what everyone else came up with!

Sorry I missed the chat last night, but I had more important things going.... my granddaughter was home for a visit and at 4 months...she's just too cute to pass up... :( sorry ladies.

But I did manage to get the sketch done this morning while she was napping. Please let me know what I could do different etc. etc. I am pretty happy with it, but would love the opinions of all the seasoned and very talented digi scrappers out there. TFL
