Oriental Butterfly

It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and of course we have a challenge for you but today is also the launch of the month-long celebration of our first anniversary.

Let's start with the challenge. It is a sketch challenge and our hostesses have created a really clean sketch this month so I decided to go with a simple design for my take on the sketch. It almost looks like I have become a little bipolar in my crafting for Sugar Creek Hollow - last week it was over the top bling and this week it is clean and simple.

I can't wait to see what all of you do with this sketch.  It should be fun to see how many of you go with clean and simple and how many jazz it up.  By the way, this month we have a Guest Designer joining us and she starts today so make sure you make Darlene feel welcome.

Now on to the anniversary fun stuff.  As I mentioned on March 1st, we have blog candy for you starting today.  To be in the running to win the blog candy, just go to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog and become a follower, if aren't already one.  Then you need to leave a comment with a contact email in case you win, grab a copy of the blog candy photo and post it on your sidebar with a link back to the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge blog.  Don't forget any of the steps or you won't be eligible to win.  Look at all these wonderful crafting supplies.  I wish I could win.

Make sure you mark your calendar so you are sure to come back each week this month to see what challenges we have planned and to participate in the fun activities, such as the Blog Hop on March 19th and the Image Naming Contest on March 26th.
