Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month.  May is here wow this year is moving along quickly!
Here in the Southern Hemisphere we are all planning to celebrate a special day on the annual calendar...
MOTHERS DAY!

I'm pretty sure we all agree that Mothers Day should be celebrated 24/7 all year round (you hearing that kiddies and partners? lol), so we decided that we want to give you a little something back and  have another sketch challenge! woohoo

Page Drafts has teamed up with this months fantastic sponsor... 
Imaginarium Designs
They are a spectacular chipboard company here in Australia. They create unique chipboards for the everyday crafter and have a huge array of designs all meticulously designed to perfection!

There will be 3 winners...
1st Place Winner will receive a $50 prize pack 

2nd Place Winner will receive a $30 prize pack
and 
3rd Place Winner will receive a $20 prize pack

How good is that!!!!

To help make this release jaw-droppingly swoon worthy the incredible ID Design Team girls have joined forces with this months Page Drafts special guest designer, the lovely and talented Kay Fatula who along with the ID team have created truly spectacular pages to showcase the sketches, so much talent here its mind boggling!

Okay so here is the...
CHALLENGE CRITERIA
Its all about celebrating that
'ONE OF A KIND'
extraordinary someone, something, experience or event!

THEME
You can of course scrap about your beautiful mother,  the experience and wonderment of motherhood or maternal bonds that are the glue that keeps your family together, but lets keep that optional. You may instead want to scrap about something extraordinary or that special something because its unique and there is nothing else quite like it. Or alternatively you could include the phrase 'ONE OF A KIND' in your title work, journaling and or quote.

PICK A TEMPLATE
You must use one of the 5 sketches from the 'ONE OF A KIND'  Page Drafts Release #30.
 You may rotate the sketches any which way your heart desires however your creation must remain as close as possible to the original sketch design. 
NB: You are more than welcome to submit more than one page, digital, traditional, cards and canvasses are all welcome
so long as your project clearly shows a sketch has been used from release #30.

FOLLOW PAGE DRAFTS
If you havent already,  please follow both the Page Drafts Blog by clicking on the followers tab above and follow the Page Drafts Facebook Page. Do the same for Imaginarium Designs Blog along with the Imaginarium Designs Facebook Page.

SHARE YOUR CREATION
Share your finished project no later than 31st May 2014 Australian EST on the Page Drafts facebook page, you can only do this if you are following the Page Drafts page. The page will then be featured and shared in the special 'ONE OF A KIND' 2014 Album. This is where the judges will be able to view and deliberate over your beautiful creations.
