It's our birthday! - 30th May - Sketch #53- sponsored by The Craft Barn

Woohoooooo!
"Happy Birthday to Us...Happy Birthday to Us...
Sketch Saturday's a year old...
Happy Birthday to Us!"

Yes, it's been a year since Sketch Saturday started! The first sketch was shown on this blog 1st June 2008 (silly me forgot to post it on the 31st May as promised! LOL!)

All of the design team would like to thank each and every one of you for making this challenge blog as successful as it is, we wouldn't be here without all of you ((hugs))
and by way of a personal thank you, you are all invited to enter in our extra blog candies! (our Party Bag Candy)
The design team have put together a small package each for one challenger, please go to each blog and put your name down on the relevant post, but please note: you are only eligible to enter each party bag candy once, and ONLY if you've already taken part in this weeks challenge too (please provide a link to your work in your comment on each blog).
We want to thank sketch saturday challengers so this is why it's only open to SS entrants!
(we will be checking!)

There is one difference though.... Each Party Bag Candy will close on each of the DT members blogs at 8:00 AM (UK time) on Friday 5th June, please note: FRIDAY MORNING.

The normal SS challenge (to win the goodies by The Craft Barn) will run until 11:59PM on the Friday evening as normal




OK, onto this weeks birthday challenge!...
This week we are sponsored by our lovely regular sponsor, The Craft Barn.



News from The Craft Barn this coming month...

"EXTRAVAGANZA WEEKEND – 6 & 7 JUNE
Spread the word and block out your diary because we have an amazing event lined up for you with a free demonstration programme whihc includes 19 demonstrators based in Lingfield Community Centre, some new as well as some of your favourites. There is a full workshop programme running in the studio at The Craft Barn.
