Welcome to the Scrapbook Challenges New Year's Blog Hop.

If you have just stopped in, please join us and start at Pamela's blog .

I am Ana White, your April Guest Designer. I am a stay at home mom living in Northern VA. I have two small daughters- 3.5 and 1.5. I discovered scrapbooking about 4 years while on bedrest during the pregnancy of my first daughter. I am totally addicted to scrapbooking and view it more as a lifestyle than a hobby. Please check out my blog, leave me some love where you see fit and perhaps even become a follower.

Here is the sketch for the blog hop- if you want to play along feel free. Create a page based on the sketch and you could win some a great RAK- see the info below.

Here is my lay out based on the sketch

There are a number of RAKs up for grabs during the hop. Here are two of them and how to get them.


One lucky "Hop On" (to read how to "Hop on" click here) participant will win the Origins collection from Basic Grey for making a post on their blog


One lucky person will win this for commenting on the blogs in the "Hop On" section. It's a chipboard layered album and a whole bunch of fabulous trim, from Rusty Pickle. For every comment you leave you will be entered into the random drawing, so leave a comment on all of the blogs for the best chance! :)

There will also be a drawing for a RAK for everyone making a LO based on the sketch above. And if you are not a member of Scrapbook Challenges and you join this weekend, you will be entered into drawing to win another RAK.


Thanks for visiting my page and getting this far in the Blog Hop. I hope you are having fun and now it is time for you to visit Brynn's blog.
