Giveaway : Sketchbook by Kelly Purkey

Reporting live from Hard Rock Hotel, Penang. I wish I have photos to share, but of course I didn't bring the camera cable along. Heck, I even left my makeup bag which contains my sunblock at home! Can you believe that? You better. I did just that.

This place is amazing. AMAZING. Good vibes all around. We so love it here and are already talking about coming back! I'll share photos soon when we get home, but for now, here's a giveaway you don't wanna miss. (If you're reading this from my facebook feed, please hop on to the blog to participate, a'ight?)



Sketchbook is a 12 day class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun. Beginning on March 29th to April 9th, a PDF will be delivered to your inbox each morning so you can work at your own pace. By the end of the class, you'll have a complete sketchbook of 12 sketches and over 30 example layouts. For each of the sketches you'll be receiving an example layout from Kelly Purkey, along with one or more example from a member of the incredible Studio Calico design team. All of the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class... you won't see them anywhere else! Sketchbook will also include a private message board for questions and sharing ideas, as well as two scheduled chats - all on the awesome Studio Calico website.

How do you win an entry to this awesome online class? Easy peasy lemon squeezy as my girls would say, just leave me a comment on this post telling me - who is your #1 favorite American Idol contestant amongst the top 12? Simple, yes? What are you waiting for :)

Edited to add : Don't worry if you're not an Idol fan, I still love you. Just leave me a comment here for the giveaway, a'ight? ;)

Giveaway will remain open until I get home on the 18th. I will close the comment then, so as long as you're able to comment here, you're eligible for the giveaway.

I'm off to bed, 11pm over here. Tomorrow is another day to feel the sand between my toes, to dance by the pool, to order another tall glass of the chocolate & peanut butter milkshake *grins* oh so sinfully YUM!

I love you, okay? Okay. I'll see you soon.
xoxo

Jennifer said...

I don't watch AI (I know, the horror) ... so no vote, but dang that milkshake sounds delicious. :)

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Amy Coose said...

I'd love to win a spot!!!

LRW said...

Oh, I don't watch American Idol either. Again, the milk shake sounds sooo good!
Thanks would love to win!

Keshka said...

This class looks so fun! I hope you're having a wonderful time on your vacation!

Haberdawoman said...

Oh the Hard Rock Cafe rocks!!!!!! I am so jealous and yet so happy for you :) and if yours has a Wet Willie's make sure you order an "attitude improvement" or a "call a cab" those are the best drinks ever.
Now we have a problem.... I don't watch AI so does that mean I am disqualified? I guess that will teach me a lesson : ) Have a wonderful week!
(((((BIG hugs)))))

Pegg S said...

Sounds like a great trip! I actually stopped watching AI this year (it just took soooo much time! lol) Perhaps I'll watch it when it gets to Top 10. I do love Simon though !!

Tiffany said...

i really hope i win!
i love kelly prukey's work!

Augusti_73 said...

Sorry, I don't watch AI - yet. I usually start watching when there's about 8-10 singers left, and we are quite far behind here, so you'll have to ask me again later. ; )

The class looks like so much fun - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

jeanie nieva said...

sorry i don't watch ai but i do hope i can win a slot in the class

Liza said...

That class sounds great!
I've been following AI's latest season and my fave for the girls is Siobhan Magnus & Crystal Bowersox! For the guys, hands down it's Lee Dewyze! Thanks for this chance!

Cindy Lee said...

Hey dear! You are in Penang now? How long are going to be here?? We can arrange to meet if time permits!

Jennifer Larson said...

My favorite American Idol is either Jack or Sawyer. Sorry, it's on the same time as LOST, and LOST wins!

j.leija said...

i'm not an American Idol fan so I couldn't tell ya my favorite but I love Ellen so I hope she's doing a great job! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Stacy Koo said...

To be really honest, the choc & peanut butter milkshake took my breathe away. Can I vote for that instead of AI? :)

Actually, I merely caught a glimpse of AI while doing work... Hence, I can only say the one that left me a great impression was Crystal Bowersox whose "Give Me One Reason" and the electric guitar took me off work for that 5minutes. She's awesome!

Thanks for the great chance for winning, it's gonna be 12 fun days!

Brenda Weaver said...

Sounds like you're having a great time on your trip!
I watch AI, but I don't have a favorite contestant yet. Nobody has really grown on me yet this year.
Thanks for the chance to win!

sylv said...

Chocolate and peanut butter sounds good!! Unfortunately, I haven't been following AI this season. I will probably start watching when it's closer to the finals.

mom2ee said...

scrapping4twins said...

I'm looking forward to my first SC kit in April so this class would be awesome. And I'm sorry I don't watch AI either.

Heather said...

I'm a total Crystal Bowersox fan! I do like Big Mike's story and his voice, but I'm pulling for the girls!

Your trip sounds great!!!

elissa said...

I don't watch AI. The last season I watched was the one with Jennifer Hudson and she was my favorite in the top 12 of that season.

Anonymous said...

Oh-I don't watch AI, but I still love Kelly Clarkson! Enjoy the rest of your trip!
And thanks for the giveaway!

Linda E said...

My number One, absolute favorite Idol contestant this season is Crystal. She has an amazong voice. Just don't know why the judges didn't think she "had a moment" tonight with the Stones. I thought she was fantastic!

Becky said...

Not watching AI this year, but my favorite contestant every would have to be Carrie Underwood! Love her! Thanks for the chance to win!

Arjanne said...

I would love to win a spot! Kelly is great, as is the Studio Calico team!

Stephanie Baxter said...

I'm from the UK, so don't really know anything about American Idol! But I think Kelly Clarkson came out of American Idol, didn't she? And I like her a lot, so I'll say her :)

Birgit said...

We don't have American Idol here, so no idea :( I could give you the name of one of the contestants of the Dutch X-factor though :)
Enjoy you lovely get-away. Looking forward to see the pictures!

ToneF said...

Oh, sounds like you have a great vacation, how I wish I was in a beauiful tropical place like that ;) A girl can dream, can't she...
Enjoy your stay!!!

I don't watch AI, I don't know if we get it here, if we do, I am sure it is some weeks later than in America anyway.
Hey... when I think of it, I think I remember seeing Simon Powell here the other day while DH was zapping through the channels... hmmm... but I did't really watch. That must have been AI.
Anyway, we have all the "copies" of the same shows here in Norway, So we get the dose.

Have a happy happy day :o)
Of course I would loooove to win a sport in KP's class ;)

Geralyn said...

Doramiyi said...

Rose are red,
Violets are blue,
Having no TV,
American Idol-no clue.

I've pretty much gave it up since university coz I didn't have the $$$ for a TV, much less the time to watch either.

Thanks for the chance to win though. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a KP spot.
