About Us

Here are a few "housekeeping" details for Let's Get Sketchy:

1.  Our challenges are posted every Monday; your entries are due by the last day of the month at midnight.  We will randomly select a grand prize winner each month.  You MUST participate in at least 3 of our 4 weekly challenges to be eligible for the grand prize drawing. 

Effective November 2015 1st LGS will incoporate a color mood board to accompany a sketch for each team.  Team A's Week ONE sketch will have a mood board to go along WITH the sketch.  Team B's Week 4 sketch will also have a mood board to go along WITH the sketch.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE EVERY COLOR IN THE MOODBOARD, however, I would like to see at least 3-4 of the colors being used.  

2.  All of our monthly grand prizes are donated by generous sponsors. Winners of physical product prizes must live within the US, if the prize is a gift certificate, international players are eligible however,  the winner will be responsible for their own shipping.   ONLY IF THE SPONSOR DOES NOT AGREE TO SHIP INTERNATIONALLY. 

3.  The LGS design team will choose WEEKLY faves, so please be on the lookout for your entry.

4.  All layouts submitted for LGS must be original layouts and not previously submitted for any other online challenges.

5. Please do not combine your layouts with other sketches from other sketch sites.

6.  Members of LGS Design Team are not eligible to win monthly prizes.

7.  You may only enter ONE layout per weekly challenge.

8.  Please remember to upload your entries using Mr. Linky located on the right side of the blog.

9.  Projects uploaded to the LGS blog are subjected to magazine submissions.  If you do not want your projects published, please contact me at letsgetsketchy@gmail.com.  Otherwise, they are subjection to publication in our magazine.

Please know that our Design Team appreciates and makes every effort to comment on each entry submitted to our challenges. However, if you are posting to a member-only site or if we have to continuously enter the word verifications, we may not be able to leave a comment, so we ask that you please turn that feature off.  Thank you for your understanding. 

Features and Faves

Each week we will select "Featured" layouts from the current week’s entries. In addition to the featured layouts, our Design Team picks a "Fave". The voting starts on Friday at 9 am CST and will end on Sunday at 9 a.m. CST.   In order to be considered for the weekly fave, you MUST have your entry in prior to Friday at 9 a.m. so please make sure you join the fun and get those pages done! We are looking forward to seeing your layout creations! Please keep in mind that only NEW LAYOUTS will be considered for Features and Design Team Faves. No back posting!

Please know that our Design Team appreciates and makes every effort to comment on each entry submitted to our challenges.   However, word verification on Blogger is making that very difficult and time consuming, because it requires us to enter letters and words that at times we can't understand.  So please, please if you have word verification on your blog comments consider taking it off! I understand you don't want spam  so please consider comment moderation instead of verification. Commenting should be easy, however the word verification makes it hard and time consuming, so  the ladies, WE WILL NO LONGER LEAVE COMMENTS ON BLOGS USING WORD VERIFICATION.

Not sure how to turn it off?  Here’s how:
Go into your “design” tab
Click the “settings” tab
Then click the “comments” tab
Scroll down to “show word verification for comments” and click NO
Then save settings.
If you are a visual learner, you may also check out this link from Ramblings and Photos below as it will walk you through it step by step.

Thank you for your understanding.
