New Year's Blog Hop



Hello 2010!!! Welcome all to Scrapbook Challenges New Year's Blog Hop! Yes, this is the one you've been waiting for. If you're just joining us, then please start at Pamela's Blog.

To introduce myself - I'm Ilene and I am a new member of Scrapbook Challenges DT! I can not express how honored and excited I am to be joining this wonderful group. I am so looking forward to meeting everyone and getting some awesome scrapping done! I can't think of a better way to start 2010. I won't bore you with too many details about myself. If you'd like to know a little more, then just scroll down to an earlier post (12/31). I made a few pages that can tell you all you need to know!

Without further ado - here's the sketch the very talented Pamela created for us, and my take on it. As you can see, I am resolving to change my evil, messy ways. The theme is New Year's - looking back on the old, froward to the new, resolutions, etc.



Now, about the wonderful prizes. I will choose one person randomly to win a RAK of 6"x6" papers, which will include one each of all the papers in Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend (18 sheets), Memory Box's Gliterrati (10 sheets), and Basic Grey's Motifica mini papers(6 sheets). To be entered to win, all you have to do is is either leave a comment for me, or add yourself to my "Follow" list. The link is on the right, under "Follow with Google Friend Connect", and make sure your picture/name gets added to the list when you're done.

Here are more prizes - there are many chances to win! These are salivation-worthy. Everyone who leaves a comment on ALL blogs in the blog hop, gets entered into a drawing for a collection of My Little Shoebox goodies. Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch this weekend and posts it in the Hop On section will get entered into a drawing for the "Origins" collection from Basic Grey. There will be a Prima RAK up for joining SC and another for inviting to SC. Some more details:

One lucky person who leaves a comment on all of our blogs in the DT/GDT blog hop will win a collection of goodies from My Little Shoebox:


One person who does the sketch and posts in the Hop On section will win the Origins collection from Basic Grey, which includes:
* Origins Collection Pack of 12 x 12 papers
* Origins Stitched Brads
* Origins White Tracery Doilies Paper
* Origins Brown Tracery Doilies Paper
* Origins Chip Sticker Shapes
* Origins Chip Sticker Abcs
* Origins Canvas Tags
* Origins Bloomers
* Origins Buttons


There are two packs from Prima Marketing, one will go to someone who JOINS the group this weekend, and the other will go to someone who INVITES someone to the group this weekend (through the invite link on the group):


And then one last RAK (which will be posted in the Hop On section) goes to one person who leaves a comment on the blogs in the Hop On section. They will receive an album and a bunch of trim from Rusty Pickle:


Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting my little piece of the internet. I so look forward to getting to know you guys and sharing our creations. Make sure you join Scrapbook Challenges if you aren't already a member. Each week, we have a new sketch created by Pamela, with plenty of examples from DT members, as well as weekly challenges and general fun and camaraderie. Start 2010 off on the right foot :)
Now, hop on over to CJ's Blog.
