It's time for Sketch #2 of the Big Sketch Contest

Hey Everyone....It's time for Sketch #2 of our Big Sketch Contest of 2011... We have more fabulous Prizes to give away!!!

Are you ready for the details?

What? A Super Spectacular SKETCH Contest

Where? Right Here!

When? Starting Oct. 20

Why? Because we LOVE seeing you play with our Sketches

Who? Anyone, Yes, Non-Kit Subscribers are encouraged to play along too.

Each month for 3 months beginning Sept. 17 we will provide a sketch (designed by Kim Keane) for you to create a LO. This means you will get a different Sketch in Sept., Oct., and Nov. to create a LO. There will be a different blog post for each month to load your LOs for judging. There will be 3 winners and 3 prizes each month. The first winner will be judged and chosen by the Design Team and then Pam will draw 2 random names for a prize... yes, each month. We ask that you only have one entry per month or per sketch. Everyone that creates a LOs with all 3 sketches will be eligible for another PRIZE...yes...even another PRIZE......the "GRAND" Prize....and the winner for this will be randomly drawn. BUT to qualify for the Grand prize, you must upload all 3 of your LOs on Your Blog or in the MCS contest gallery and link them here in the Link attachment on the MCS blog. Yes, the Grand Prize will be a random draw so it's any one's game at this point. So that means if you have missed a month of playing along then here is your chance to catch up and still qualify for the Grand Prize…Deadlines for each month will be given as we go along each month...Awesome Contest, right???

OH, I almost for got to tell you what the "Grand Prize" will be...The lucky "Grand Prize Winner" will receive.......drum roll....please......
