October Sketch Challenge

We are so very lucky this month to have another Guest Sketch Inspiration for our monthly Sketch Challenge, so, when you think of brilliant sketches, who comes to mind immediately for you.  For me, it's almost always this lady!

Michelle Fowler!  Woohoo... that's right!  Have a look at this:

And the only thing better than a Michelle Fowler sketch would have to be a Michelle Fowler layout!

Stunning huh?
But the treats just keep on coming!!
The superbly awesome Kim Ewins, has also provided us with an inspo layout as part of her Featured Member duties.  Check this out:

Kim has flipped the sketch and totally made it her own.  I just love it.

So, with all of this inspiration, you just simply have no excuse not to participate this month girls!  lol .... seriously!

The deadline for this month's sketch is midnight Monday 31st October.  As always, the winning entry will be featured in the main gallery for the month of November.  Omgosh, that sounds horribly close to Christmas doesn't it?

Don't foget to upload them to the Sketch thread in the Boxx forum.

September Sketch Challenge Winner!

Our winner of the September Sketch Challenge has been announced... and as always, it was a fairly tough decision.  The super gorgeous Belinda had the honours and this layout, by the lovely Wendy, is the lucky winner this month:

Congratulations Wendy!  I love that you used the negative of the corrugated alpha sheet as a background and all those stars and colours just make for the perfect boy page.  Great take on the sketch too.

Your layout will now be featured in the main gallery over at The Boxx for the whole month of October.

Keep your eye out for the next sketch challenge.  We are in for a really special treat!!!  :)

Cheers for now,
