Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!!!!!

It is finally here! I can't tell you how excited I am to be part of this Blog Hop.
.
The first thing you need to do, is go over to Pamela's blog! Go ahead and head over there and get started. I will see you again in a few minutes!
.
Welcome Back! Let me tell you a little more about Scrapbook Challenges, in case you don't already know.
Pamela runs a group on MySpace called Scrapbook Challenges and does a fantastic job creating all these sketches! Each week, there is a new sketch and 2-3 challenges offered by members of the Design Team. For each sketch or challenge that you do, you get entered into the drawing for the prize each month! Pamela also gets us really awesome prize sponsors each month! You can see this month's sponsor and prize here! The group is free to join, all you need is a MySpace account. You can share as much or as little as you want in your profile. There is also a thread each month just to post your work, and each week Pamela picks one layout to highlight each week. You can see May's Work here! You can check it out the group as a guest, but need to have your MySpace account to post and participate. While you are there visiting, you can see the challenges that have been offered so far this month!
.
This sketch was designed specifically for the Blog Hop!
I invite you to make a layout based on this sketch, it is a fun one! You can twist it, turn it, flip it, whatever you want as long as it resembles the sketch in some way. You can post it at Scrapbook Challenges in this thread, or you can post a link to your completed layout on Pamela's Blog. Be sure to post your link in the correct post!
This is what I did for the sketch! I used DCWV cs, Pink Paislee Fetching pp, buttons, MM Itty Bitty letter stickers which I inked, and MM Passport cb letters which I inked as well.
This is ME! My name is Marilyn Wiggins, I am 34, and am married to a wonderful man, Cliff. We have been married for 8 1/2 years. I live in Beaverton, Oregon. I currently living with my parents, helping to support them. I have not been able to have children and it is my dream to someday have a family. For now, I enjoy my two kitties, Cisco and Toby. I have Type 2 Diabetes, and continually struggle with taking care of it properly. I have been scrapbooking for 5 years. I love all thing paper crafting-scrapbooking, ATCs, cards, altered items, etc! I am totally obsessed with it and usually do something sb related every day! My life would not be complete without scrapbooking!
Here are a few random silly facts about me....
1. I hate wearing shoes.
2. I am obsessed with office supplies.
3. I am terrified of stairs.
4. I love cooking and creating new recipes.
5. I smell all of my new scrappy supplies.
What would a blog hop be without a RAK?!
Leave me a comment telling me something about YOU and you will be put into the drawing for this fabulous kit I put together! Want another chance to win? Simply follow my blog, at top right of the page. Want yet another chance? Do the sketch and give me a link to it! But remember you MUST link it to either Scrapbook Challenges or Pamela's blog too! Another entry you can earn, join up at Scrapbook Challenges and leave me another comment telling me what your MySpace user name is so I can say HI! AND one more chance, tell me something you learned over at Rowena's blog! That is a possible 5 entries into the drawing for my RAK! Be sure to leave me a comment for each entry into the drawing! Comments need to be made by Sunday, May 24th at 11 pm Pacific Time! I will post the winner on Monday, along with a new sketch!
.
The kit contains Basic Grey Granola pp, Bazzill cs, handmade felt embellishments, handmade journal spots, Cuttlebug cut self-adhesive felt alphabet with lots of extra letters (don't worry, I will finish cutting them out for you), misc brads, Prima flowers, buttons, ribbon. chipboard, hand-dyed "skittles", and a few other things.
If you leave a comment on everyone's blog that is participating in the blog hop, you will get a chance to win ALL of these goodies! Scarlet Lime has graciously donated one of their sold out Main May Kits! Just look at all this loveliness! You can get a better look and the list of supplies here!




If you post your completed layout based on the sketch, either on Pamela's blog with a link to your layout, or in Scrapbook Challenges, you can win these from Studio Calico! There is the Glossary Add On Kit, and a set of Carter Stamps.

If you complete the the following questionnaire, you will be entered into another drawing for these Unity Stamps!
When you have the answers to this questionnaire, email Pamela with your answers at pamelacy@msn.com. It will require some searching!
1. Which DT member can taste something at a restaurant 1-2 times and recreate that meal?
2. Which DT member almost made it to the National Fencing Team when she was in college?
3. Which DT member dreams of painting her Mustang barbie pink?
4. Which DT member is missing from our Blog Hop this weekend?
.
Now, hop on over to Liz Chidester's blog, and continue on with the hop!
Thank you so much for participating, and I hope to see you around again!
