100th Sketch HOP

Welcome to The Scrappiest's 100th sketch celebration!
I am so thrilled that we have made it this far. We have had so many talented design team members here and I have made so many friends along the way. I look forward to what the future will bring.

Sketch 100

Here is my take on the sketch:

My older kids dressed up as a book character for school so my youngest needed something cool on his face too... so I drew him a mustache. He was acting so goofy pretending to be a "mustache man". LOL!

Try the sketch and upload it to Mr. Linky below by January 31st and you could be the winner of a $25 gift certificate to Crop Chocolate! Oh, and don't forget to leave a comment.

Here's a little about what Crop Chocolate is all about:
"At™, we sell all-things scrapbook. But here's the catch, we only sell one item at a time – at a delicious price. Every day several items will be posted – so act fast – a limited quantity will be sold at deeply discounted prices. No time to let it temper.
Several times a day, items will be sold on at delicious prices. It may be an embellishment shelf with all the works, a scrapbook kit, scrapbook tools or an organizer with some added goodies. What ever it is you can count on this – you'll get great products at outstanding prices.

Now if you want to see how our fabulous design team used the sketch you're going to have to hop for it. Hehehe! Be sure to hop the whole way through. You are going to learn a little about these girls that give us great inspiration every week and I also know a few of them are offering prizes.

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way:

Star Rork
Lisa Wilkinson
Monique Liedtke
Wendy Kwok
Monique Nicole Fox
Kylie Symons
Carrie Labani
Brigitte Van Linden
Sara Zenger

Now hop on over to Luzma's blog to see her take on the sketch.

I'll see you back here tomorrow for another sketch, a fabulous guest designer and a yummy new sponsor for the day!

Upload sketch 100 by Jan 31st to win a $25 GC to Crop Chocolate!
