April 23 ~SOUS Designer Blog Hop and Glitz Blog Candy

Hello there, scrappers! Time for another Friday reveal and Stuck on U Sketches' first Designer Blog Hop. This week we are going to let you tour SOUS, then all four of the designer's sites and then come back here to sign up for blog candy from Glitz Design. We will be giving away 18 sheets of Glitz paper, 6 papers from 3 different collections. And it's yummy! The rules are that you must be a follower of SOUS, then be a follower at each designer's personal blog and leave comments along the way. Then come back to SOUS to let us know you finished your journey! We will announce the winner on Monday and you will have one week to claim your prize.

(Here is the Maya line we used and one of the 3 lines that you will receive,  along with Vintage Love and Distressed Couture)

So, our challenge this week was to use this Beggahuna sketch and to use any of the 6 papers donated to us from the Maya collection. Since the paper was double-sided, we had 12 choices! If you have some Glitz, then feel free to play along. But if not, then play along with the sketch only. We can't wait to see your creations!

Here is what we did....

April 9th , NO sketch but we have a challenge for you!

Happy Friday, everyone! We have something a little fun and different for you this week! This week's CHALLENGE is to use an "UNUSUAL ITEM" on your layout or card.  For our purposes, we called it the MOST unusual thing we had ever used on a layout. It can be anything .. but it has to be something that you've NEVER used before or is highly unusual in scrapbooking! Maybe it will be something from the kitchen or garage. Maybe something from your child's playroom. There was once a layout on where a mom had used her son's broken hearing aid on her layout. Now how about that for creative? Who knows where this challenge will take you? Let your imagination run wild! We know ours did! Okay, here is what the design came up! Let's see if you can beat these great ideas!

This week's sketch is by Jolene Pienaar. I (Sandi here)  happened upon her blog one day and fell in love with her sketches. To see more of her work please visit Sketches by Jolene.  And could there be a cuter sketch for those Easter or Passover photos you'll be taking this weekend? Mine went together really fast .. so hope you give a try this week and link your layout or card to Mr Linky.
