August Sketch Challenge

Wow, it's hard to believe that August is here already.  Where did the summer go?  But a new month means a new sketch challenge at C'est Magnifique!   Here's the sketch design team member Nadia Cannizzo created for us.

We hope you will use the sketch as your inspiration to create a layout.
You do not need to be a member of C'est Magnifique Kits
to participate in the sketch challenge.  
It's open to anyone and you may use any supplies you wish.  
But, since we are a kit club, there is an added incentive to use one of our kits 
to create your sketch layout (which I will explain below).

We will be offering 2 prizes this month.  One winner from all entries (selected randomly) will receive a large prize package.   The winner will also 
be able to purchase anything from our Store and have it shipped free 
with their prize package - anywhere in the world!  Here's a look at what Leslie has put together for this month's prize which includes a full line of paper from the 
KaiserCraft.  You will also receive items from Manor House, 7 Gypsies, My Mind's Eye, Cosmo Cricket, and more!

Because we are a kit club, our second prize is $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store that will be randomly awarded to someone who obviously uses one of our kits to create their layout.  This is our way of saying "thank you" to our members.
We will also be "featuring" 5 layouts from the submissions for this sketch.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?
1.  You must become a follower of our blog.  If you're already a follower, we thank you!
It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Complete a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below.
 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, August 31 (US time).
Here are some layouts from our Design Team using the August Kit, A Vintage Summer
and the August sketch:

"Love" by Camilla Ekman

"Love" by Erin Blegen

"Love" by Beverly Sams

Did you notice that all three designers used the word "Love" as their title?  Our August Kit is perfect for creating layouts of those you love!

Tomorrow we will be announcing the winner of our July Sketch Challenge, so be sure to check back.

And in case you didn't see yesterday's post, we are offering free US shipping (reduced International shipping) for store orders through August 6th.  Check here for all the details.
