Hello Everyone!

It is Wednesday which means a new sketch and a new challenge.

Our very generous sponsor for this week's prize is....

A little about them.

Pics 'n Tales is run by two passionate scrapbook lovers, Ezme Hartman and Mare-liez Oosthuizen. Beside our day jobs, we started this scrapbook kit club four years ago - although we've been scrapbooking for much longer, and design scrapbooking kits on a monthly basis. The Pics 'n Tales style of scrapbooking varies between classic, eclectic and vintage, incorporating mixed media elements from stamping to texture paint. We love to scrapbook about the loves in our lives, ordinary days and special events, and sometimes we just scrapbook because the paper and embellishments are just so awesome! Both of us have been published in various scrapbook and craft magazines. The members-only class is every last Saturday of the month. Pics 'n Tales is based in Cape Town, but have members all over the country and even abroad. We design the layouts in turn, so our members have the pleasure of being exposed to more than one creative style. We tend to mostly do double page layouts, but also like to do single pages and mini albums, and every now and then, something more adventurous, like off-the page projects! We also teach at scrapbook events and art cafes and surplus kits are for sale to non-members on our mailing list or via Facebook.

We blog once a month about that month's kit, class and events on and also keep our Facebook page -, up to date with happenings and creativity. Our web address is and we can be contacted at
