Winner, Winner - and some amazing featured layouts!

Hello everyone!  It's time to announce the winner of our July Sketch Challenge, and to feature some amazing layouts.  We love to show off how you use Blue Fern products.

We will begin with this month's winner, selected by a random draw.........and the winner is entry #7,  created by Alison Bevis of Australia.

Congratulations Alison!  As the winner, you will receive a package of Blue Fern Studios chipboard.  Please send me an e-mail, within the next 7 days, to {valerie(at)bluefernstudios(dot)com} to claim your prize.

Here is the lovely layout Alison created for our July Sketch Challenge using paper from the Sanctuary Collection.  She also used several chipboard pieces - Smile, as her title, Seaside Frame, Checker Bits, and Circle Links.

We are always pleased to feature a few layouts from those that were submitted for the challenge.  You all spend so much time creating layouts for us, and we want you to know how much we look forward to seeing you use our patterned paper, chipboard and stamps!  Of all the amazing projects, here is a selection of 5 layouts that we would like to feature this month.

The first feature this month was created by Taru Jehkonen of Finland.  Aren't theses colors beautiful?  We love how Taru began with a sheet of paper from the Ombré Dreams collection, and created this stunning background.  The frame is from the Splattered Circles set, and the title is one from the Laughter, Happy, Smile set of words.  

Marie-Eve of Canada also used paper from Ombré Dreams for her sketch layout, which features some amazing touches of gold!  She used a circular frame on her layout (Graduated Circles), Shabby Brick Bits, and the title is from our French Words chipboard set. 

We immediately fell in love with this one from Rae Moses of the US.  The Boston Lattice chipboard piece is the perfect back-drop for this sweet photo.  The paper is from the Dejá Vu collection.  We love the addition of the scalloped border. 

 The next feature this month also has a scalloped border and striking black accents.  This stunning layout was created by Connie Hall of Canada using paper from the Montage collection.  The Heaven Sent chipboard title, from the Spiritually Speaking set,  couldn't be more perfect with such a sweet photo.

And last, but not certainly not least, is this layout from Joanne of Canada, who has used another sheet from our Ombré Dreams collection.  The simplicity of this one is what caught our eye.  It really lets the photo shine!

That wraps up our July Sketch Challenge.  Thank you to ALL who participated.  
We sure hope you will be back creating with us this month.  You can see the August sketch challenge by clicking on the link on our sidebar.  Have a great month!
