Hello Bloggy Buddies!

Can you believe it is August already!!  -
WOW - Time sure does FLY BY!

This month's sketch is an easy FUN ONE -   and you can use up some of your scraps for it - (like I did) if you'd like!

We've decided to use PINTEREST for our sketch source again - as there are just so many good ones out there and we are thankful/greatful for all those who share!  We found this one that dates back to 2010 on an Ally Scraps Blog - so Thanks Ally and Thanks to Debbie Gaydos the designer!

Did you ever only have 1 photo from a memory, or event, and were not sure what to do with it?  Well, I had this one great shot of my youngest son Jake, holding the first "pickings" from his first ever garden. I decided it would be perfect for this Sketch/Layout - and I used the same photo - 3 times, but with 2 different size prints!

I also found this great GARDEN paper from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo, and thought it would work perfectly! I even mixed in a little patterned paper that I had left over from a beach layout - that I used BoBunny's Key Lime Colletion in, and some leftover paper from a layout I used My Mind's Eye Collectable / Notable collection in too!

ITEMS USED:  (Click on the underlined words/links to find them at THE DOO!)

Adornit -Garden Fun-Garden Word Play
BoBunny Key Lime Stripe (stripe)
Fiskers edge punch
Thicker's Marine Glitter Letters
Heidi Swapp Memory File Mini Instaframes <--- LOVE THESE!! 

We'd love for you to play along -   Here are the rules/how it works:
We post a sketch challenge each month, (both on this BLOG and on THE DOO's Facebook Page.) Qualifying participants will be entered to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Scrap-A-Doodle Doo. In order to qualify, you must interpret the sketch provided (so we can "see" it!) and submit your entry via Mr. Linky below before the end of the month. Because this is a Scrap-A-Doodle Doo sponsored challenge, ONLY layouts, cards, or projects submitted that use products carried/sold by Scrap-A-Doodle Doo will be eligible to win the Gift Certificate. (Because Scrap-A-Doodle Doo has literally THOUSANDS of items from over 250+ manufacturers, this should be easy! :)  Winner will be chosen by a random generator on the 15th of the following month (in this case September 15th) Contest is only open to US residents, but EVERYONE is welcome to play along!

So head on over to the store's
website, check out the product listing using the search feature to verify that the products you are using are carried by the store, and then get crafty!! :)

I hope the layout above and this sketch has inspired you to give The Doo's AUGUST SKETCH CHALLENGE a try!   So come on - and get Scrappy With It! We CANNOT wait to see what all of you will come up with!!  Be sure to LINK up your photo here with the Linky Button!
