Merly Impressions October 2014 Challenge

Hi everybody! It’s a new month and we are to challenge you once more!

This month we are offering you a sketch challenge drawn by Sandra. You can flip or rotate the sketch and your layout can be on any subject but we must be able to recognise that your layout was based on the sketch drawn by Sandra.

The final date for entries is the 2nd of November 2014.

Sandra has created a layout to provide a little inspiration:

Hello everyone, Sandra here today with the sketch challenge!

I absolutely love sketches, do you?

Here’s one I designed for this month, I hope you will join in!


I’m not a fan of Christmas papers before Christmas actually arrives, but I had so much fun with Mistletoe Collection, it’s so bright, and no! I haven’t used it for Christmas stuff, but just for normal work!

My layout:

I cannot wait to see your interpretation of the sketch.

Feel Free to make it the way you want!

Hugs!   xoxo

Please add your creation to the gallery below before the challenge closes at 1:00pm on 2rd November 2014. We will then choose our favourite layout to win a fantastic prize – a £25.00 voucher to spend on anything you want from the Merly Impressions online store. Wow!

We do hope that you have fun with our challenge and that we bring some inspiration your way. Every month I love to look through all your gorgeous entries but please make sure you follow the challenge rules as we are sad to have on occasion to remove some entries as they didn’t follow those rules. You can find a full list of the Challenge rules on the Monthly Challenge page but we would like to politely remind readers that:

  1. anyone who puts their entry on their own blog must link back to this post ( so that all your visitors can find the gallery below and enjoy all the fabulous layouts being created
  2. each creation entered must be “new” (not previously entered into a Merly Impressions or any other challenge)

It can be difficult for us to view any of your entries linked through Facebook therefore we are kindly asking you if you could please post your photos on the Merly Impressions page as this should make it easier for us all to admire your work. You can also email your entries directly to us at and we will add them and link them through our Photobucket gallery.

Have fun!
