Seasons of Change Blog Hop at Scrapbook Challenges



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!! If you came here via Jolanda's Blog, you are in the right place!! :)

For those that are visiting for the first time, my name is Rene’ and I am one of the returning DT members at Scrapbook Challenges. I am loving being a part of this awesome team. I have been truly inspired since joining SC, 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 5 different 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 new "Restoration" line from Crate Paper.
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 new "Pixie-Licious" line from Cosmo Cricket, including the 12 x 12 sheet of chipboard.
3. Everyone who joins the group this weekend gets entered into the drawing for a Prima pack.
4. Everyone who invites someone to the group this weekend, through the "invite" link on main page, gets entered into a drawing for a Prima pack.
5. There will be a fifth prize in the Hop On section. (More details at Scrapbook Challenges!!)

So do you want to see some pics of these gorgeous prizes???? Of course you do!!
