C'est Magnifique: November Sketch Challenge & More~!

**For my November giveaway, please go HERE**

Good afternoon! It's time to share with you the November sketch for C'est Magnifique, the amazing prize(s) to be won, and my final two layouts using the beautiful November Kit which features the amazing "Domestic Goddess" collection from 7 Dots Studio!

We have a brand new sketch designer for C'est Magnifique! Her name is Michele Singh and she is a very talented lady~ just take a look at this month's sketch which she designed especially for us!

Beautiful and versatile, just the way I like it!!

So how do you play along? Well, read on!

This challenge is open to everyone.  You do not need to be a member of C'est Magnifique Kits to participate in the sketch challenge and you may use any supplies you wish.  
But, since we are a kit club, there is an added incentive to use one of our kits to create your sketch layout (which I will explain below).

We will be offering 2 prizes for our sketch challenge.  One winner from all entries (selected randomly) will receive a large prize package.   The winner will also be able to 
purchase anything from our Store and have it shipped free with their prize package - anywhere in the world!   
Here's a look at what the November prize package:
Because we are a kit club, our second prize is $10 gift certificate to the C'est Magnifique Store that will be randomly awarded to someone who obviously uses one of our kits to create their layout.  This is our way of saying "thank you" to our members.
We will also be "featuring" 5 layouts from the submissions for this sketch.

What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1.  You must become a follower of our blog.  If you're already a follower, we thank you!
It's easy to become follower -see the left sidebar.

2.  Create a layout using the sketch, and add it to our blog using the Inlinkz tool below.  Please link to the blog post where you have uploaded your layout 
(not your general blog address).

 Deadline for entering the sketch challenge is midnight, November 30 (US time).
Have fun!  We can't wait to see how you use or November sketch. 

Finally, here's a peek at my final two layouts for this month!

"26 Mos."
My little guy is just go-go-go ALL the time, as you can clearly see from this photo. I just loved the energy and color in this picture and so I paired it with the perfectly coordinating colors in the beautiful November kit. I played with my background paper a bit by using a flourish mask and some bronze glimmer mist by both using the mask as it's meant to be used and also as a stamp.
