Hello fellow Scrapbookers!
Welcome to the first sketch for October. This month will be filled with exciting new sketches using the Bonjour and 13th Hour Collection!!
Let’s re cap on the rules for the sketch:
Each Saturday every month a new sketch and inspirational layouts will be posted here on the blog.
From these 3-5 sketches (depending on how many Saturday’s there are), you have that many chances to create a layout of your own and upload it to any gallery of your choice, or in a blog post.
Once done, link your layout into the comments section of the appropriate sketch blog post and you’re entry is complete!
Find FULL terms and conditions here.
Comments with linked layout entries for each monthly sketch challenge will close on the last day of that month at 11.59 (Australian Eastern Standard Time UTC +10/Daylight Savings Time UTC +11)
1st PLACE: One of Kaisercraft’s new collections (valued at approximately $50).
2nd PLACE: A Kaisercraft scrap pack (including new products) valued at approximately $30.
Now for the fun stuff!
Here is the beautiful layout by Melissa Kennedy that the sketch is based on:

“I flipped the sketch and replaced the smaller photo with a journalling block and used a larger main photo. Rather than using a banner, I used one of the acetate shapes. I usually look at a sketch, and interpret the shapes as the base for my layout.
My youngest son is currently collecting and reading the Goosebumps books, and the 13th Hour papers matched them perfectly.”
