Seasons of Change Blog Hop.




Welcome to my first post on my first blog. I feel entirely confused, haha. Well, I'm Holli; an avid scrapbooker for 5 years, ironically, married for 5 years as well. I'm currently a misplaced Mainer (or Maineah, if you're from there) - living in south-west Pennsylvania; my husband goes to school here and we can't wait to leave. I don't know where we'll live next (we lived in Tennesee and Washington state before this) but I know we will retire back to New England when the time comes.

I'm opening my blog with the *big news* that I made design team for Scrapbook Challenges! As a new member, I'm trying out something new for the group: a blog hop. So, of course, I had to give into the wonderful world of blogging. :) If you've never heard of Scrapbook Challenges - it's an amazing Scrapbooking group, actually, the only one I've been faithful to for years now. They used to be on Myspace but luckily, the awesome creator, Pamela, decided to make her own site and they've been soaring since. They feature tons of mothly sketches and challeges, along with prizes and everyone is invited to participate. I've met lots of scrappy friends on there and have become a better scrapbooker because of the challenges.

So, onto the "Seasons of Change" Labor Day Weekend Blog Hop:
If you just stopped in and don't know where to start: you start @ Pamela's Blog. From there will be directions on where to go and what to do to get involved! So much fun, right?

Now here is the officical sketch for the blog hop: (ta da!)



and here is my LO based on that sketch:
(this is my husband, a few weeks ago when he earned his first college degree! he didn't want to attend graduation, even though I protested - so our happy medium was this photo I made him take.)



& of course, there are always prizes involed when it comes to SC.

RAKS involved in this blog hop:
(pictures below)
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.
6. Plus some of the other DT members *may* be offering up prizes on their own blogs, if you're interested in finding out ;)

RAK peeks:











So, if you've hit my blog because you're doing the blog hop: your next stop is: Brynn's Blog! :) Good luck and have fun!
