Lets Scrap Hoppy New Year Blog Hop

THIS POST WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG UNTIL THE 14TH FEB. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW POSTS

At long last the day has arrived. YAY it's time for our Hoppy New Year Blog Hop over at Lets Scrap . Lets Scrap is an amazing, fun site to belong to. The people are friendly, there is always loads of inspiration and lots of cool competitions.

Every Wednesday there is a sketch posted ~ our talented DT showcase their LO'S and then members have a week to complete their LO. A random winner is chosen and so everyone beginner or advanced has a fair chance of winning a prize from our awesome sponsors.

There are also weekly DT challenges, question of the week, monthly competitions and a forum that always has an interesting topic to discuss!

Now to the serious business of the BLOG HOP. The hop starts today (14th January, 2011) and runs through to Monday 14th February, 2011 at 23h59 central time. That means you have a whole month to complete the 15 RESOLUTIONS (challenges) that our DT, CDT and administrators have got going. There are also some great challenges to be found in the FORUM from one of our members who does not have a blog, so be sure you check that out.

All the BLOG HOP RULES are posted in the forum ~ but this one is real important. Everyone who enters a challenge in EVERY RESOLUTION will be in line to win the grand prize which looks like this DRUM ROLL PLEASE..........


So be Sure to get those challenges posted in the Lets Scrap  gallery. The other rule that you have to stick to, to win the grand prize is to become a follower and leave a comment on EVERY BLOG taking part in the hop.

Here is a list of the amazing blogs you will be visiting along the hop:

RESOLUTION #8

My challenge to you is to create a LO using a Lets Scrap  sketch, black and white photos and a blue and yellow embellishment on your LO. I used the LHS page of sketch LS128 and this is what my LO looks like


So happy scrapping. Please upload your entry into the gallery over at Lets Scrap . Tag it Resolution#8 no spaces, then a comma and then sketch number with no space either.

Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment. If you are already a follower I would love a comment.

On the 15th Feb I will be doing a random draw and the lucky winner will receive this small RAK from me. So be sure to check back on the 15th to see if yo are the winner.


Good luck!Thank you for joining in the fun. You need to hop on over to MANDY to see what she has to show you.

Hugs
Bev

  74. Bev, I love your work, but your resolution was the hardest for me. Man did it take me out of the box. I almost didn't complete it, but late last night I had a "flash" of something that could work....I am so happy with the result and something I wouldn't have thought to scrap without your prompting! Thanks so much!
