Scrapbook Challenges Birthday Bash Blog Hop



Hi everyone and welcome to the Scrapbook Challenges Birthday Bash Blog Hop. I am the 9th stop and you should have come from Amy. If you didn't and you are one of my followers (thank you by the way) or you just happened upon my blog please go to the beginning and hop from there (it will be totally worth it I promise, since there are goodies to be had along the way.)

Well the reason for our blog hop- encase you didn't know is that the best ning site EVER is turning 1. So we are having a huge birthday bash. There will be challenges galore, with RAKs to be won. There will be games and lots of things happening at Scrapbook Challenges. So if you haven't made your way over there yet, whatcha waiting for? Go do it, do it now. Ok not now, but after you hop through the blog hop.

So for your first challenge we have a sketch for you, and everyone who does the sketch and posts it Scrapbook Challenges, will be entered to win a RAK (I will show it to you in a moment, ok?) So here is the sketch,

And here is my layout based on the sketch


This page is of my little kitty girl, Rita. She was named after the Beatles song "Lovely Rita" and that is the title of the page. (Fancy Pants used here, and it is the boys line "Little Sprouts" but you would never know by looking at the paper.)

Ok Pamela, our leader and the lady who started it all, has a number of fabulous RAKs involved here. Seriously, wish I could try for them. So here they all are,

RAKS involved in this blog hop:
1. Everyone who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop will be entered into the drawing to win the It’s Your Day collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

2. Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch and posts it in the Hop On section gets entered into the drawing to win the Early Bird Collection from Cosmo Cricket.




3. Everyone who joins the group during the Birthday Bash gets entered to win the Merry Christmas collection from Echo Park Paper Company

4. Everyone who invites someone to the group during the week, through the "invite" link on main page, gets entered into a drawing for the Road Map collection from October Afternoon.

Ok so that is that. Those are some seriously good prizes to be won so I hope you will join us in this Birthday Bash.

So thank you for stopping by, and I hope you will come back and visit my blog again. And if you tell me who your favorite paper company is I will enter you into a drawing for a surprise RAK. (I say a surprise RAK because I am not sure what it will be yet, LOL)

Now hop on over to the wonderful Sookie.


Have fun and good luck.
