It's the beginning of a new month and that means ... ** EDITED**

..... another Imaginisce Sketch Challenge is up ....


Here is my LO based on the sketch - I basically extended the photo and two blocks next to it across my page and made my circle smaller ...


a close-up of the jounraling tag book (my journaling reads as follows: -  I bet we all have an uncle just like my uncle, Owen!  The life of the party with plenty of good cheer - he drinks like a fish and makes us laugh until our sides hurt and then he makes us laugh some more!  He is almost always still "egg-nogged" from the night before (hence the dark glasses) but he happily dons the cloak of responsibility (aka the Santa Suit) and hands out gifts from Santa to all the eager children - awesome family memories indeed!


and a close-up of the reindeer embellishment ...


I used the new Cottage Christmas collection and boy is it awesome ... soooo cute and very, very easy to work with ... In fact, I have been inspired beyond belief by this collection ... and, of course, I "i-rocked" this page to death too ... Go here to take a look at the amazing i-rock tool - I can't stop using mine - it's almost attached to me at the hip already ... tee hee ...

So, the drill is the same as every month .... Pop on over to the Imaginisce Blog where you will find the sketch as well as links to the Designer's blogs. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, including mine, and create a card/LO/alterable project with the sketch, using 75% of Imgainisce products. Submit it to Imaginisce using MR LINKY (very important, girls - if we cannot find your project on Mr Linky, we can't judge a winner ....) and you could win $75 worth of product from Imaginisce - seriously, girls ... that's alot of product ....

Come back on Friday for some more inspiration ... I am going to upload a few of my recent LO's ....

P.S.  I may have loaded this a little early, so keep popping back to Imaginisce to leave your comment under the August Sketch post ....

Love,
