We will also have a 2nd prize of a $25.00 {US} gift certificate and other chances for prizes along the way.
Hop Challenge #8: My challenge to you is to scraplift any project from the Sketches4All Gallery.  There are so many projects to chose from and anything in that project could inspire you.  Once you find your inspiration, create any non-digital project and post it back to the Sketches4All gallery with a tag of HOP8, giving credit to the project you lifted.  In addition to being eligible for the grand prize and 2nd place prize, one lucky participant in my challenge will be entered in a random drawing for a 6x6 paper pack.

For my example, I chose to scraplift a layout from a fellow DT member - Brenda Ragsdale.  The elements I pulled out where the overall design (though I turned it on its side), a sentence for the title, and the use of both large and small alphas in that title.

And this is the layout from Brenda that I lifted:

So join Sketches4All, take a look at our gallery and get inspired!  Some simple rules for this challenge:
