August First Challenge and Reveal

Hello there!

We know that summers can be very busy, with kids out of school and family vacations so we wants you to know that we are very grateful that you are taking the time to join in on our challenges!  Now, it's time for a new sketch challenge, so let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge. 

A big thank you goes out to FLOURISH WITH A BLING, for sponsoring our August 1st challenge, they are offering a $15.00 gift card to their site, to one lucky participant!

www.flourishwithabling.com.au



Flourish with a Bling is an Australian company that has their own range of beautiful flourishes, vines, pearls, gems and more. And just recently, Flourish with a Bling have introduced their own range of gorgeous flowers.
You can contact us or find all our products on our easy-to-use website  www.flourishwithabling.com.au.
 

AND thank you to MAY ARTS RIBBON, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering two spools of ribbon to a second lucky participant!

http://www.mayarts.com/

May Arts was founded in the early 1980’s in Riverside, Connecticut. The original products were high-end silk flowers imported from Taiwan, which were decorated using quality ribbons. The decorative ribbons proved so popular among customers that the business gradually evolved into a dedicated ribbon wholesaler.
As a family-owned and operated business, May Arts began a long-standing tradition of qualityaffordability and exceptional customer service. We are dedicated to carrying on this same tradition by offering high quality products at competitive prices. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is always happy to answer your questions or to assist you in placing your order.

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....



We are partnering up with another challenge site again for this sketch, if you choose to play along with both challenges you can link up with both sites for a chance at both prizes!  Just a little more bang for your scrappy efforts during this busy summer season!

This time around we are partnering with Let's Capture our Memories, who gave us this great colour palette to use!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....












Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by Friday August 29th, 2014 to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.

When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.
