Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!!!


If you're here for the Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop, then you're in the right place!! As some of you may or may not know, I was on the SC DT last year for one term - in fact, it was my first DT gig ever. So I am very grateful to Pamela for taking a chance on someone who was coming to her with no experience and for seeing something in me and my artwork. Pamela was the first person to open the door for me into this world of online scrapping and the community. I loved being a part of the team there, loved Pamela's sketches, and loved working with all the girls. I am sad to see Pamela go, but our lives are constantly changing, and something we have time for today may not be a priority tomorrow, so I do understand. I wish Pamela luck in all her future endeavors and I hope down the road she has the time to come back and throw herself fully into scrapping again.

Here is the LO I completed, based on sketch 231. The pp is Bo Bunny that they sent me recently for winning their card sketch challenge - thanks Bo Bunny!


I did a LO about DS:




Now, for the prizes:

1. One member who leaves a comment on all the blogs & in the hop will get Chipboard Borders, 12x12 Collection Kit and a 6x6 Paper Pad from To The Moon by Fancy Pants.

2. One member who post a NEW a layout based on one of Pam’s sketches and posts it in the HOP ON section will receive a package of Tim Holtz goodies.

3. One new member over the weekend will get the We R Memory Keepers’ Sew Easy Piercer, 4 Piercers, a mixed assortment of Divine Twine and 15 colors of DMC Embroidery Floss.

And I have a RAK of my own - I will pick one person randomly to win two of the brand new collections from My Little Shoebox - Sew CUte and City By The Bay - you will get one sheet of each of the papers, one die cut sheet from each collection, as well as one sheet of journaling tags from each collection!!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and be a follower of my blog (or become a follower). (Please mention that you're a follower when you leave your comment to be entered to win). Here's a pic of my RAK:



I really love these MLS pp's - they're so cute and the colors are perfect!

The blog hop runs until May 8th, so I will pick a winner for my RAK sometime on Monday the 9th....you have until then to enter! :)

OK, now please continue with the blog hop and hop on over to the talented Jackie.
