Limelight sketch and paper challenge

Are the presents bought and wrapped? Is the tree decorated? Are the holiday lights twinkling? Is your head spinning faster than a dreidel? It's the most wonderful time of the year! This week we encourage you to stop, and take a minute to do something for yourself! Grab your favorite patterned papers (or wrapping paper for the multitask-ers!) and sit down with our simple sketch. We can't wait to see what you'll create! We are a week early here for another round of a sketch challenge with Limelight, BUT we figured we'd have better participation if we posted it this week instead of next week (which is Christmas!).

  • Sketch and Product Challenge with a focus on your favorite Limelight patterned paper.

  • Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC011.

  • Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on Mandy's blog, all entries must be submitted by Sunday, December 21st, at midnight.
    Here is how I used the sketch.

I love when I can take a card sketch and use it on a scrapbook page. I just flipped it to work with the orientation of my picture. We took the boys to see Santa on Monday and I only ordered 1 picture, this 5x7. I was afraid it might get lost from now until I am ready to scrap it so I went ahead and put a quick page together. Isn't that paper fun?! It is from TaDa and it is called Okee Dokee-Pokee Dot (even the name it fun)! The buttons are the Wassail buttons from Basic Grey and the ribbon is the gorgeous new satin ribbon Mandy added to the store a month ago. Come play along, link your creations to Mandy's blog and you could win, are you ready for this? Mandy is in a very generous mood (she is always generous with her give aways, but I'm super excited about this one!) she will give the winner a brand-new Basic Grey Bittersweet 6x6 paper pad!!! How cool is that? Enough incentive to play? Get to it and have fun with the sketch!

Hugs, Lisa


  1. Oh, wow! What a fun page! I love the papers you paired with the photo. It lends to the fun, whimsical side of Christmas...and the colors are perfect for sweet little boys! :)

  2. Oh, this sketch made a GREAT page! Love it! That paper name makes me smile!

  3. I've got to say, this is an awesome sketch and you ROCKED it out with that page! Way to use your creative eye and get that picture on a page before it is lost or damaged! Cute cute cute! Love your papers and the button tab and the letters. Can't say enough I guess!

  4. What a great page! I love the giant title, so perfect! That paper is fun!
