August 13-19 Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, Paper Smooches fans & friends!

Today starts another fun challenge!! Be sure to check the bottom of this post for last week's winner :)

The second week of each month is always a Designer Drafts challenge. 

This week we are inspired by this sketch! 
So friends, that's your challenge--use this sketch for your creation.  Follow it closely or use it loosely...just have fun!  

Create a NEW project (card, tag, layout, altered item, etc)

You must use at least one Paper Smooches stamp or free digi

(stamps from other companies can be used, but please make sure that PS images are easily seen)

Post your Paper Smooches SPARKS project on your blog.  We would love you to include our SPARKS banner (shown on the right column) somewhere on your post, but it is not required.  (right click on the SPARKS challenge banner and save to your computer.  If you have any trouble, I am happy to e-mail the image to you) Please link to our web site: - and include Paper Smooches somewhere on your post.  Submit a direct link to your blog post using our linking system below.

If you do not have a blog, please upload your project to our Flickr Group and link to our web site in your description.  Submit a link to your gallery image using our linking system below.

Here's what you are playing for: One Paper Smooches SPARKS player will be chosen and named our PS Pro.  This player will receive a blog button to display on their blog and $30 credit to the Paper Smooches store!!! 

The deadline for this challenge is: Sunday, August 19th at 11:59pm EST
