Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop


Hi ladies. Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop. We are so happy that you have decided to join us and take part in this fun event!! If you have just stopped by here, the hop starts with Pamela. She is the founder of Scrapbook Challenges, and is a talented and hugely inspirational lady! Her blog is: Pamela's World of Scrap. Head off there, and then follow the links until you land back here!!

For those that are visiting for the first time, my name is Rene’ and I am one of the new DT members at Scrapbook Challenges. I am overjoyed to be a part of this awesome team. I only joined this group fairly recently, but have been truly inspired since joining, and have been scrapping like a crazy woman since!! I have been scrapping since 2005, and am constantly inspired by this amazing hobby. I have recently purchased a new camera and am so enjoying improving my photography skills. I am the mother of 3 gorgeous and active boys. They keep me busy and on my toes, and are of course the main reason I scrap. I have been married to my very supportive and loving husband Ray for 12 years now.

So let’s get this show on the road! There are some awesome prizes up for grabs. I wish I could be in the running for some of these goodies!!!! So let me explain the various ways you can take part:

There are 4 different RAKS involved in this blog hop:

· Everyone who leaves a comment on ALL blogs, gets entered into a drawing for the April Scarlet Lime kit.
· Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch this weekend and posts it in the Hop On section will get entered into a drawing for the "My Family" line from Fancy Pants Designs.
· There will be a Prima RAK up for joining Scrapbook Challenges.
· Another Prima RAK for inviting someone to Scrapbook Challenges.

Do want to have a look at these awesome giveaways?? O.K… feast your eyes!!!!





So here is the sketch that you will need to base your layout on. It’s a fun sketch to work with!!



Here is my layout, and a few close-up photos of the detail on the page.




Please stop by Scrapbook Challenges. If you are not already a member we would love for you to become one. It is a wonderful community of creative ladies.

*****Next stop on our Blog Hop is the talented and sweet Sarah. Go and see what she has been up too!!*****

Thanks for spending some time at my Blog. While you are here I would love for you to become a Follower, and don’t forget, in order to stand a chance to win the Scarlet Lime kit, you need to leave me a comment. Have fun and good luck!!
