My favorite place to buy scrapbook supplies is a deal of the day website called Scrapbooksteals.com. They have such fantastic produts usually at 50% or more off retail. Not only are their products great, but their Facebook community is fantastic and they have a blog.
Every Wednesday on their blog they do something called Mid-week Mojo. Kristy Lee, or a guest sketcher, provides a sketch and then showcases that days "steal" (featured product) using the sketch. They are always such fabulous sketches and I find them so much fun! They do a weekly contest using the sketch where you create your own take on the sketch, whether followed closely or losely, and post a picture of your creation on either their Facebook page or a personal blog. You then post a link to your picture on that weeks blog post. That enters you into a weekly drawing for a scrappy prize. At the end of each set of 10 sketches, they do a big drawing for all those who completed all 10. Fun, huh?
I have been doing these Mid-week Mojo's (MWM) for over a year and have loved expanding and greatly improving my scrappy skills. If you don't already, you should join in on this scrappy fun!
Here is the first sketch from the current group, Topaz, and my take on it:
