Hopping with OUAS!!

Welcome to Once Upon A..Sketch' s first birthday blog hop!  It is so exciting to have you here and we hope you are inspired along the way to join in the fun and get creative!!  You should have arrived here from Lene's blog, but if you haven't you need to go back to the beginning of the list below so you don't miss out.

(please note that due to time differences there could be some broken links..please check back later as the blogs will be updated asap) 

Our new MONTHLY challenge has just been released! Each Design Team member has created their own  layout based on this sketch and journaling criteria and you need to follow the above list to see what they came up with. 

We would love to see what you create, so please link your project to back at the Once Upon A...Sketch blog. You DO NOT have to participate in the blog hop to enter this challenge. 

Here is this month's challenge....

April Challenge

 The theme of this challenge is HOME.  We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "HOME" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme  and this sketch. 


And here is my example...


I used some fabulous papers from Webster's Pages that I had on hand...not any of the newer stuff, but I am so eagerly awaiting all of it that I felt inspired to pull out what I had.  :)  And then the chipboard fence comes from Magistical Memories and the chipboard corner pieces come from Imaginarium Designs.  

Here are some close up's of my layout:


PRIZES

Our main sponsor of this blog hop is ....

 Imaginarium Designs
Imaginarium Designs chipboard is donating this prize to one lucky winner of the blog hop.

This prize pack includes AUS$70.00 worth of chipboard PLUS inks PLUS Spray Mists PLUS free postage to anyone in the world. 


DETAILS

 ***In order to be entered for the main prize,you must be or become a follower AND comment on ALL blogs along the way and finally back at the Once Upon A...Sketch blog to tell us that you have left a comment for everyone.

***There will also be some other prizes along the way which our Design Team have kindly donated. To win these, you need only comment on and follow the blog which is giving the prize. The randomly chosen winners for these prizes will be announced at that Design Team member's blog.



This is the prize I am giving away....

That is one huge pile of 12 x 12 papers from BasicGrey, and then also some 6x6 pads and embellishments, also from BasicGrey.  

This is open to ANYONE that becomes or already IS a follower of my blog and leaves me a comment on this post.  (This is the standard set by the hop)




 The blog hop starts today, April 1st and finishes midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) April 5th with the MAIN PRIZE winner to be announced soon after the blog hop ends at the Once Upon A....Sketch blog and the other winners announced at the Design Team member blogs soon after the blog hop ends also. 



Thank you for visiting and taking part in our blog hop!



We hope you found some inspiration along the way.



Your next stop is the very talented Larissa!!!!

Have a wonderful day!
