This time I got three layouts; one from the US, one from Canada and one from the Netherlands. Thanks, girls!

Becky made this layout :

April 2010 PageMaps Sketch Competition

Create a layout based on Becky's sketch from PageMaps below and email me a picture of your layout (if you want you can also include another picture or two with details of your layout) to me before midnight on the 30th of April 2010.


Here are some more 'rules' and details:

  • The winner will be announced in the first days of May 2010.
  • The winner will be determined by the Random Number Generator.
  • Each layout will get a number, which can be seen on the April 2010 slideshow on the right side of the blog.
  • Please understand that you can only send me one layout for each competition every month. I would like everyone who participates to have an equal chance!
  • Don't forget: please let me know your blog address (if you have one), so I can link the layout to you own blog!

IMPORTANT: this competition is open to ANYONE, ANYWHERE in the world!!! It doesn't matter if you live in the US, Europe, Australia, Africa ... I will post the prize to you regardless where you live!


The winner of this month's competition will win the prize pack pictured above. It has all sorts of items that can be used for borders around your layout and/ or cards. The pack has has the following items:

  • Chipboard Shapes 'Borderline' (Buzz & Bloom)
  • Die Cut Transparent Borders 'French Twist' Aqua, Fuschia and Lime (Autumn Leaves)
  • Die Cut Transparent Borders 'French Twist' Orange, Red and Blue (Autumn Leaves)
  • Rhinestone Border Strips (Glitz Design)
  • Rubon Stitching 'Stitches & Corners' (DCWV)
  • Rubon Stitching 'Curly Q' (DCWV)
  • Cardstock Border Stickers Kraft (Hambly Studios)
  • Clear Border Stickers (Hambly Studios)

The two winners for the March competitions are ....

Using the 'Random Number Service website' I have chosen two winners. I love the idea of using a number generator instead of voting, because it gives everyone an equal chance! I only have to enter the number of entries for each competition, click on the mouse and done!

So ... the winner of the PageMaps sketch competition for March is Wendy from the Netherlands and the winner for the 'Just Write' competition is Becky Atkinson from the US! Congratulations, girls!
The competition for April will be posted in the next 24 hours, but I have to wait until Becky Fleck has posted the PageMaps sketches for April 2010. Since I started a new job last week, I have less time to scrap and I also spend less time on the computer, therefore I have chosen to only do one sketch competition next month instead of having two competitions. I hope you girls understand :-) !

One more layout ... just before midnight ...

Just before midnight - with only about 15 minutes left - I received this layout from Caroline Hackney from the US.

Papers and embellishments from Grammy's Lily by Correen Silke. The journaling reads: "After Hurricane Ike, we needed a place to escape to... somewhere with running water and electricity! Our friends' house in Texas Hill Country was the perfect refuge. The barn and shed in the back yard provided perfect photo material."

Thanks, Caroline!
