Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!


I am so excited to announce I am one of the newest DT members for Scrapbook Challenges! I can't wait to get started on the challenges and meeting lots of new friends in the forum. If you haven't been to the Scrapbook Challenges forum yet, you won't be dissapointed. There is a sketch each week and multiple challenges each week. Add on tutorials, crops, games, and chatting and you will not run out of inspiration there! Pamela Young, the founder, makes the best sketches! Just check out the sketch below and see for yourself.

A little about myself- My name is Sarah and I have been scrapbooking for the past 8 years or so. One year ago (on Christmas day) my daughter Frances was born and I have been scrapbooking her ever since. I like to create LO's that are cute because Frances is cute. I am really excited to get to know everyone at Scrapbook Challenges.

So on to the hop! To the celebrate New Year's and introduce the DT Scrapbook challenges is having a blog hop Jan. 1st - Jan. 3rd.

If you are just arriving you can start at: Pamela's Blog

For the hop each DT member created a layout based on Pamela's sketch below. Since it's New Year's the theme of the LO could be "changes" or "resolutions". I chose to do my LO on how fast Frances changed throughout the year.

Here is the sketch....

And my take on the sketch...

Scrapbook Challenges is all about inspiration so if this sketch inspired you please HOP ON to the blog hop by creating a LO of your own based on the blog hop sketch. There will be a HOP ON section of the forum to link your LO and a RAK for one lucky "hopper onner" (details below).

And now for the fun part- the RAKs! There are several up for grabs and multiple ways to win. Good luck to all!

1. I am giving away these SASSAFRAS GOODIES! Included is a set of acrylic stamps, three packages of stitched buttons, one package of chipboard shapes and one sheet of stickers. To win leave a comment on my blog on this post. I will pick one post at random and announce the winner here on Jan. 4th.


2. One lucky person who leaves a comment on all the blogs of the blog hop will win a collection of goodies from MY LITTLE SHOEBOX.


3. One person who creates a layout based on the sketch above and link it in the HOP ON section of the Scrapbook Challenges forum by Midnight MST on Jan 3rd will win the Origins collection from BASIC GREY that 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


4. A package from PRIMA MARKETING will go to someone who JOINS the group this weekend and another will go to someone who INVITES someone to join the group this weekend (through the invite link on the group).


5. A RUSTY PICKLE chipboard album and collection of trims will go to one person who leaves comments on all posts for layouts in the HOP ON section of the Scrapbook Challenges forum.



WHEH! That's a lot of prizes! Good luck to all that enter and thanks for stopping by.

The next blog to hop to is: Annie!
