Our December Sketch Challenge

Welcome to December everyone!  We're starting the month by posting our December sketch.  We know that you're all busy during December, but you have the entire month to work with the sketch.  Our sketch has been designed by the very talented Michele Singh.  You can find Michele at her blog, Design Honey.

Here is our December Sketch and a few layouts from our design team using the sketch with our December Kit, "Silent Night".  

"En Angel" by Camilla Ekman

The December kit from C'est Magnifique are loaded with lovely papers from Pion Design. The papers are Christmas themed, but the papers are very versatile and can be used for other layouts as well. This angel paper suits my angelic niece Hannah.

"Sweet Baby Keegan" by Valerie Serfozo

This paper from the kit is one of those that doesn't have a holiday or winter theme to it. When I saw the delicate flowers in the corners, I thought of this photo of my nephew. I just love the way he is curling his little tongue. 

"December" by Erin Blegen

What's not to love in the month of December? It is one of the most warm, festive, and exciting times of the year! It usually means lots of family, food, music, and plenty of Christmas beauty all around! And this kit definitely provides plenty of opportunity for scrapping those special holiday photos- so I went very traditional here using the classic red and green Christmas colors, paired with Michele's fabulous sketch!

Now it's your turn to use this sketch as inspiration to create a layout for our challenge. 
This challenge is open to everyone.  You do not need to be a member of C'est Magnifique Kits to participate in the sketch challenge and you may use any supplies you wish.  
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 for our sketch challenge.  One winner, randomly selected from all entries 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 the December prize package:

Our second prize will be a $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 all of 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.
