New August challenges

Here at Sisterhood of scrap we are loaded with challenges and prizes for your summer scrapping pleasure. Today marks the first day of August and that means our 1st August sketch is loaded and ready for you to get some LO's done. Everyone has that pile of pictures that needsto be scrapped and this is a great opportunity to get 'er done. These sketches can be used for points in our Summer Sizzler Challenge. Info on that challenge are HERE. We are getting scrappy stuff done and then adding up our points for that project. Every Monday there is an additional challenge for larger points values.
Now on to the sketchbook challenge:

Welcome everyone to the August Sisterhood Sketchbook Challenge!

Please read the following Guidelines, then participate, and have FUN!

OK: Now what's this "August contest" all about?
**** There is a schedule for you to keep as a "visual aid" this month. Please go to The Sisterhood Sketchbook Challenge Blog and check it out. ****

As you can see, there are 4 weeks in this Contest.
Each week, 3 sketches will be posted: Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. (Stars appear on those dates, on the calendar.)
We are gonna create LOs!
ALL the sketches are created by SOS Members and Admin, and ALL of 'em are for LOs.
A "Week" runs Sunday to Saturday.
You have until SUNDAY midnight Atlantic Time to get your entries in. This is marked on the calendar as well.
What is an "entry?"
An entry is your interpretation of the sketch that has been posted.
When are the PRIZE DRAWS?
Each week, on MONDAY, there will be a prize draw. (NOTE: No prize draw Mon Aug 2, as the contest will have just begun.)
What are the Weekly Prizes?
Prizes will ALL be donated by Admin members, and will vary, consisting of [easily mail-able] scrappy items!
You can have your name entered into the weekly prize draw just by
(1) creating a LO ("entry") that uses the Sketch posted AND
(2) sending it to Ali at
So, every week, you have THREE basic chances to have your name in the draw!
IE: Use all three sketches, send the interpretations to Ali, and your name goes in 3 times!
AND: yes-- you can be entered more than once if you use the sketch on more than one layout. Just be sure they get sent to Ali so they can be counted as an entry!
WHO can participate?
ALL SOS Members and Admin can participate in this contest. Ali will not be participating as she is the coordinator on this one. We may meet new faces and friends as this contest will be advertised on Scrapscene and Pub Calls.
Where are the sketches?
ALL Sketches will be posted for you on the Sisterhood Sketchbook Blog.
When you send me your entries, I will post them under that sketch for us ALL to enjoy.
Due to time constraints, I cannot keep track of everyone... so this is up to li'l ole YOU! **grin**
At the end of the Contest, on August 31st, 2010 there will be a FINAL PRIZE DRAW.
ALL entries from the entire length of the contest will be placed in the draw.
One name will be randomly drawn by my daughter Kate.
Winner will be announced immediately.
What is the Final Prize?
The Final Prize will consist of a $20.00 Gift Certificate to the Savvy n Sassy store, donated by Yours Truly.
Come one, come all! Let's play with Sketches and Scrappy stuff!
