Blog Hop



Hello crafting diva's-

If you have just stopped in, please join us and start at Pamela's Blog. I don't want any of you to miss out on the fun this weekend.

Are you a member at Scrapbook Challenges? Do you participate in our challenges? We have a weekly sketch challenge, with a brand spanking new original, never seen before sketch designed by Pamela Young, a highly talented and published artist. Plus, each month we have a photoshop, technique, and digital challenge, in addition to our regular challenges, issued by the DT members. Pamela also works extremely hard to secure fantastic sponsors each month. Scarlet Lime in April, and Studio Calico for May, and you gals know they put together awesome kits. Remember you have to be in it to win it.

Be sure to leave everyone a comment saying Hello, and be on the lookout for all the fabulous prizes to be won. Including, the sold out May main kit, from Scarlet Lime this lovely kit from Studio Calico and the Carter Alphas stamp set too, and if thats not enough this set from Unity Stamp Co is also up for grabs, plus RAK's from the DT along your way. Wow right! All you have to do is participate in this blog hop, and leave a comment on all of the blogs for your chance of winning the Scarlet Lime kit. Link us your take on the Sketch here or here or both for the Studio Calico prize, and play detective for the Unity stamps.

To test your detective skills, and be entered into the drawing, send me an email, to pamelacy@msn.com, with the answers to these questions:
1. Which one of the DT members can taste something from a restaurant 1 - 2 times and recreate that meal? (Such an AWESOME skill by the way)
2. Which member of the DT almost made it to the national fencing team when she was in college?
3. Which DT member daydreams of painting her mustang Barbie pink?
4. Which Scrapbook Challenges DT member was missing from our blog hop this weekend?"





Here is the sketch Pamela
created for the Blog Hop.




This is my take. I wanted
to stay true to the sketch.
Black Market paper society PP.



Random facts about me:
1. I always drink from a straw. Always!
2. I had 4 miscarriages, before a high risk, but successful pregnancy with Blake. I treasure him, as he will probably be my only child. Only time will tell.
3. One of my dreams, is to see George Strait in concert. I'm still waiting!
4. I love One Tree Hill solely because of Chad Michael Murray.
5. I love grape pixie sticks. Yum
6. I am a huge Ketchup fan.
7. I love to watch hip hop dancing and street dancers of any kind.
8. I daydream of painting my mustang Barbie pink.
9. I believe in a woman's right to choose, but it will change my opinion of you, as I don't agree with it.


Bonus RAK:
I also will be giving away my own RAK today. To be in the drawing, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me one random fact about Jen. The blog you just left, and one of your favorite scrapping products or companies. For an extra entry, become a follower of my blog.
Good Luck!
