New Sketch, New Layout and a Giveaway!!

Alrighty!!  It's here!  The long awaited first sketch of many more to come. I'll get to it in just a minute...but first, I want to thank those of you who are willing to help out and create layouts to go with the guys ROCK!!!! I emailed out a few of the sketches to some of you who commented.  But if I didn't have your contact information, I couldn't send you one.  Please leave your email (disguised from bad guys like this- "yourname at emailserver dot com") if you want to get in on the sketchy action and I will send you a sketch as I have some available. 

Enough's enough.  Onto the first sketch. I hope you like it and can use it!!!

Since it was such short notice, I just have my own sample for this one.  But I can't wait to see what you all come up with using it!!!  While mine is sort of girly, you can easily use this for a boy layout with stars, or you could even change the circles to squares or another shape!! I hope you can see the little details and stitching on here...why do layouts always look better in person?? LOL (And ignore my grossly misshaped tiny stitched circle at the bottom.  Make a note to draw a circle in pencil before attemping to poke holes in the shape of one. ;)  )

Onto something even MORE fun....a GIVEAWAY! While I haven't had a chance to put together goodies yet and take a photo, I want to give away a little scrappy prize to one of you who uses this sketch for a NEW layout.  Please upload your layout to your blog or gallery and post a link to it in the comment section of THIS THREAD. Then I will have the kids pick a winner next Friday morning. 
Want a second entry? Choose to "Follow Me" on the side of the blog page. I lost all my "followers" when I redid the blog and I am lonely. :)
Want a third entry? Share this contest with a link on your own blog.
*Let me know in the comments where you post the info please and if you are a follower. 
**Last rule-You must create a layout to be eligible for the drawing.  Sure, you can still share about the contest and choose to follow me...but I want to see layouts people!!!! No layout, no entries.  (Said in my nicest, sweetest voice.)

Have a fabulous Friday!!!!
