May Sketch Challenge & Some Changes

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.  We have a few changes to tell you about and then on to our weekly challenge.

First, we want to say goodbye to four of our Design Team members who have inspired you for the past months. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful work and we will be lurking around to see what you are up to.


We also want to welcome Patti, who was our April Guest Designer to the team.

The changes are simple - we are going back to our roots and we want you to show us vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired cards or other paper crafted projects following the challenge theme for each week. If these aren't your styles, then this is the challenge blog for you because you will be able to get wonderful inspiration and stretch your creative repertoire. That is what a challenge means - trying something outside your comfort zone.

We are really excited to announce that some of our challenges are going to be sponsored but even though the Sugar Creek Hollow store is closed, Tracy will still offer a digi of her choice to the random winner when there is no sponsor. She will also offer a freebie once in a while so you need to check the challenge blog often.

We have reduced the size of the Design Team but will round it out with Guest Designers. We will continue to choose a top pick each week and then select a Guest Designer each month from that group. From time to time we will feature an invited Guest Designer.

This week the challenge is to use this SKETCH.

This week we will choose a random winner and that person will receive a digi of our choice and a badge to display on her blog. The Design Team will choose a Card of the Week and the creator of that project will receive a badge to display and will be in the running to be a Guest Designer.

Here is what our designers have created for your inspiration. Please click on their names to be taken to their blogs for all the details.
