Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop!!! :)

**This is my second post for the day, I would love it if you would scroll down and view my other post as well. :)




Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges sixth DT blog hop! :) It officially starts at 10am (MT) and will go through Monday at Midnight (MT)--which is the deadline for qualifying for prizes.

I am your first stop on the hop.

Today's hop is special though. We are celebrating our first birthday on the ning forum! We started out as a group on myspace a long time ago, but exactly one year ago today, we became our own forum on ning. We have all sorts of activites and challenges going on and I do hope you join us there too. And there are a ton of prizes to be won. :)

Today, every blog you hop to will have a layout that they made that is based on this fun sketch created by yours truly:



Here's what I did for the sketch...



And some close up's:






And of course, the best news is that we have lots of FABULOUS PRIZES to give away today! So let me get on with all the ways you can win a prize. :)

1. One lucky person who leaves a comment on all of our blogs in the DT blog hop will win the "It's Your Day" line from Fancy Pants Designs:


2. One person who does the sketch and posts in the Hop On section will win the "Early Bird" line from Cosmo Cricket:


3. One person who JOINS the group this weekend will win the "Merry Christmas" line from Echo Park Paper Company:


4. One person who INVITES someone to the group this weekend (must be through the invite link on the group) will win "Road Map" line from October Afternoon:



5. And you will find a 5th prize in the Hop On section! :)

6. And finally, I have some blog candy just for one lucky person who comments on MY BLOG today. :) It is the "Nerdy Bird" line from Sassafras:



Now that I have overwhelmed you with all the FANTASTIC things you could win. :)



Oh, and thanks for joining us today! :)
