"One Month Old" LO for Sketches4All (my 3rd DT stint . . woohoo!)

Hi, everyone!

Would like to share and invite you to my 1st hosted challenge at Sketches4All.  I've been recently been accepted as their Design Team Member together with15 other lady crafters.  My 3-mo. term started August 16, 2011.  This is my 3rd DT stint aside from Kaboodle Doodles & CropStop.  Sketches4All offers LO, tags, ATCs, card and sketch challenges.

For my 1st Challenge:  Sept 2011 Handle With Care Challenge 1, I'm hosting a thematic challenge that ranges from baby pages, love/romance pages, special loved ones pages, etc. 

  1. Must follow the Handle with Care theme, specifying which category your creation would fall.  Maybe a brief background of your page would help.  
  2.  Must have (1) predominant shape on your creation.
  3. Must have any kind of stitching – faux or real
  1. Must be a new creation as of the start date of this challenge.
  2. You can submit as many creations as you so wish at Sketches4All.
  3. This can be combined with any challenge you so choose inside or outside of Sketches4All.
  4. If your LO is inspired by a sketch, please upload the said sketch together with your creation at my group's challenge discussion thread.  We would also like to be inspired by your LO with the sketch used.  You may opt to use Fia’s sketch at the Get Sketchy Group Section or the inspiration sketch I utilized for my sample LO.
  5. Upload your LO in Sketches4All gallery with a tag: Kath’sHandleWithCare1
  6. Challenge opens Aug. 22, 2011 and ends Sept. 30, 2011 (at US timezone EST) though I’m from a different or advanced timezone (Manila, Philippines) 

Winner will be drawn at the end of September 2011.  A small RAK will be provided to the winner.

My sample LO:
