Birthday Blog Hop.

This blog hop is in participation for http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/ where I'm a member of the design team. This week we are celebrating SC's first birthday with a bunch of challenges, prizes and a blog hop! And so, 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? THEN you should come on by Scrapbook Challenges and play along!

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

and here is my LO based on that sketch:

(this is myself on my 24th birthday, in 2007. My husband was overseas for the army but he sent me these beautiful gifts from Iraq.)

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

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 Early Bird Collection from Cosmo Cricket.

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 It’s Your Day collection from Fancy Pants Designs

3. Everyone who joins the group during the Birthday Bash gets entered to win the Merry Christmas collection from Echo Park Paper Company.

4. Everyone who invites someone to the group during the week, through the "invite" link on main page, gets entered into a drawing for the Road Map collection from October Afternoon.

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

I've decided to start the Couch to 5k Running Plan today. I've been trying to get into running for months now - and I seem to do too much too quickly and burn myself out.. then I don't run for weeks and have to start all over again. This C25k plan seems to start off slowly and work into running a 5k (or 3 miles) in 9 weeks; little at a time. So today I'll start Week 1 - Day 1. Wish me luck!! :)
