Scrapbook Challenges NSD Blog Hop!



Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop! If you're just joining me, you can begin at the beginning with Pamela's blog. By participating and leaving comments, you have the opportunity to win some EXCELLENT prizes. Everyone who leaves a comment on ALL blogs, gets entered into a drawing for the April Scarlet Lime kit. Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch this weekend and posts it in the Hop On section at Scrapbook Challenges (on the Forum) will get entered into a drawing for the "My Family" line from Fancy Pants Designs. AND, there will be a Prima RAK up for joining SC and another Prima RAK for inviting to SC. These prizes are SWEET...and delicious, and just so very juicy! Don't miss them!

Also, for anyone who leaves a comment and is a follower, I will do a drawing for a little package of Making Memories Vintage Findings Vellum Envelopes. (I know I did them before, and what I love about them is they're so easy to ship! LOL) So when you comment here for your chance to win the main prizes, also mention if you're a follower to be entered for this little RAK. It doesn't matter if you were already a follower or if you are just joining up.

By the way, I'm still away on vaca, but I just couldn't miss the hop, so I scheduled this post!

For those of you who know me, I've been on the DT at Scrapbook Challenges for this past term, and I've loved every single minute of it. Sadly, my life has gotten really busy, so I won't be able to renew my DT position, but I will certainly be coming back as a member - membership is for life! LOL

Here's Pamela's awesome sketch 197:


Here's my take on the sketch - it's called "Play Hard". Notice my bling? It's ZVA, of course! And the cord brads and burlap buttons are Nikki Sivils - too cute! Make sure you play along with the sketch to win the awesome prizes!!!





OK, now hop on over to the next stop, Deb's blog!
