Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop! :) **TONS OF PRIZES**



This is a long post with tons of info, but I promise it will all be worth it, there are TONS of PRIZES!!!!


Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges seventh DT blog hop! :) It officially starts at 10am (MT) and will go through Sunday at Midnight (MT)--which is the deadline for qualifying for prizes.

I am your first stop on the hop.

In case you don't know...Scrapbook Challenges is a fun group filled with wonderful people. We have weekly sketches and challenges. There are monthly sponsors for the group with fabulous prizes to win. I just know if you give it a try, you will love it there as much as I do. I am looking forward to the new things we have in store for this next term. But how about we start with our new DT! I find each and every one of them totally inspiring, and you will get to meet them all today! Sadly, we are also saying goodbye to some wonderful people, but they are only leaving the DT...they will still be around in the group. :)

Today, every blog you hop to will have a layout that they made that is based on this sketch created by yours truly:



OR for those who prefer two pagers, we have this one:





Here's what I did for the sketch...



I used the Sweet Season line from Webster's Pages that I recently won. :) My chipboard is fromMagistical Memories. And I used Helmar to put it all together. Who incidentally is our sponsor this month at Scrapbook Challenges (check that out here). The products I used are theQuick Fix Adhesive Runner, Liquid Scrap Dots and Premium Craft Glue.

Here are some close up's of my layout:







And of course, the best news is that we have lots of FABULOUS PRIZES to give away today! So let me get on with all the ways you can win a prize. :)

1. One lucky person who leaves a comment on all of our blogs in the DT blog hop will win the BRAND NEW "Spring Market" line from Webster's Pages!!!! AND they will get the chipboard buttons and twine with it. :)




2. One person who does the sketch and posts in the Hop On section will win the "Be Mine" line from Echo Park Paper Company!!!



3 One person who INVITES someone to the group this weekend (must be through the invite link on the group) will get this collection of Zapdots from Helmar!!!



4. One person who JOINS the group this weekend will get this BRAND SPANKIN' NEW stamp set from Unity and Webster's Pages!!!


5. And you will find a 5th prize in the Hop On section! :)

6. And finally, I have some HUGE giveaways for TWO lucky people who comment on MY BLOG post and are or becomes a follower. :) It's out with the old and in with the new time for me right now. I need to make room for all my FABULOUS new stuff from My Little Shoebox, so I have piles and piles to giveaway. :)






Those 3 pictures are all of 1 RAK! :) And remember, I've got 2 of these!!!

EACH of these RAKS include the following:

* over 130 sheets of patterned paper (including die cut papers)
* 2 Cardstock Sticker Sheets
* 9 Sheets of Glitter Alphabet Stickers
* 15 Sheets of Sprinkle Glaze Alphabet Stickers
* 13 Sheets of mini alphabet stickers
* 10 sheets of overlays
* 8 sheets of chipboard alphabets

It's huge...really! :) Which is why I don't feel guilty when I ask you to also be a follower of my blog. :) So if you are already a follower, leave me a SECOND comment on this post, telling me you are a follower. If you become a follower this weekend, that's awesome, please leave me a SECOND comment on this post telling me you became a follower. My RAKS are for followers only. :) As a thank you to those who have been or become followers.

Now that I have overwhelmed you with all the FANTASTIC things you could win. :)

I do have one more thing to share with you. I will be introducing you to our first new DT member. :) She is not hopping with us today because she is on vacation! Lucky her.

Meet Helen:



About Helen, from Helen:

Year 5 of living by the sea with my soul mate, our eclectic collection of kids & cats & our live-in helper - makes for a creative life, filled with interesting conversation, colour, hope & possibility. Documenting the journey through my passions - photography, journaling & the art of scrapbooking. A life fraught with challenges but my glass is always half full. I choose to collect pretty underwear, sleep under percale, embrace the warm Indian Ocean air, count the ships every day, drink cider with lemon & sing along to the Parlotones, because life is too short for my glass to be half empty.


Ok...now let's get hoppin...



Oh, and thanks for joining us today! :)






In case you get lost on the blog hop...
