Challenge #2: Sketch Challenge

I LOVE a good sketch challenge!  I don't find it "cheating" or uncreative at all.  Just the opposite!  A sketch can be just what you need to get going...and rarely do I make anything that looks exactly like the sketch.

Challenge #2:  See what you can do with This Sketch from Retro Sketches


Jemma needed to make a birthday card for a good friend ;-) and wanted to use up some fibres in a creative way ...

Lisa interpreted the sketch in a "loose" way, turning the sketch, to make up a layout using her June kit - more detail shots can be seen on her blog (here)!

LesleyG eventually came up with a layout which she liked after nearly throwing her toys out of her pram!!

******************************************************************************


Now, how can YOU participate?  Go to the sidebar and use Mr. LINKY to link us to YOUR kit or project using your kit so we can leave you some love!  We will make a brand new Mr. Linky for each month, so get your blog posts linked ASAP!

To make Mr. Linky a little easier for us to use, please type your name and then a description of what you are linking (ie: kit, mini challenge, ect).

We also have a Flicker group, if you don't have a blog, but would like to share your creativity with us!  CKC Blog Flicker Group

We also have a new twist on our Follower Blog Hop for this year!  I hope you like it!

End of the Month Blog Hop:
On the 24th of each month we offer a blog hop opportunity to all of our followers!  A chance for you to show off a special project made with your counterfeit kit for that month.

Here is how it will work:
Your Blog Hop Project may be from any of the 3 challenges we offer throughout the month.
Your project must be something new that you have not shown before and only post for the hop.

To be a part of our blog hop:
1.  E-mail us your name/blog address/promise to participate at counterfeitkitchallenge@yahoo.com  BY THE 18th!  (No late requests will be able to join this time due to the work it takes for us to get it put together.)

2.  You will receive  an e-mail from us by the 20th with a list of the hop participants.

3.  You will need to schedule your own blog post showing your project based on this challenge and links to the person after you in the hop.

4.  All Blog Hop posts will need to be scheduled to go live on the 24th at 12:00 A.M. Mountain Standard Time (Arizona)
