Sketch Number 1

Welcome to my new blog for sketches. I would like to thank Liz Chidester over at The Scrapiest blog who inspired me with her sketches. Every week or every other week I will have a new sketch based on an advertisement. I hope you enjoy the sketches as I want you to be inspired and use your imagination. Nothing is set in stone so use them as you will, for inspiration to your layouts. I can't wait to see what you create!

I am looking for girls who are willing to do some layouts for me based on my sketches. This is totally for the love of sketches and I know it is a lot to ask for no compensation other than your layouts being posted here and I will add your blog to my sidebar. This is a great way to get traffic to your blog. If this seems like something you would like to do, email me at dscog@verzion.net or leave a comment here.

If you own a store and would like to sponsor me please contact me at dscog@verizon.net. I am looking for prizes and product for the girls who will be doing layouts in the future for me. Your store name and link will become part of my blog. Thanks so much.

Thanks to everyone for their support. And without further ado here is my first sketch. This ad has one of my favorite actresses in it, the very beautiful and talented Judy Garland.









Look at this awesome take on the sketch done by the very talented Paula! Be sure to check out her blog Scrap Attic's Attic


And finally I have a fabulous creation done by Mar, whom we will be seeing a lot more of around here. She has graciously offered to be my first DT member. What a great gal! Be sure to check out her blog here!
