LET'S SCRAP LEAP BLOG HOP HAS BEGUN!

THIS POST WILL STAY ON TOP UNTIL THE BLOG HOP ENDS AT 11:59 p.m. ON FEBRUARY 29TH, ACCORDING TO THE CLOCK ON THE MAIN PAGE OF THE LET'S SCRAP WEBSITE.  

     PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS.

Hello, Hoppers, and welcome to STOP #18 in the



If you came here from Kristin Perez's blog (http://somescrapsugar.blogspot.com/), then you are in the right place!  If you did not, Mindi Brown (the coordinator of this great event) at http://scrapchat-ncoffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the hop order to help you find your way.

I am so excited to be a blog host for such a creative, fun and HUGE blog hop!  Here is the Let's Scrap sketch (created by Sketch Artist DebbyD) I am showcasing for the hop:


SKETCH 8-18-10

And, here is my interpretation of this great sketch:


Your card, layout or other project, if you choose to create one, can be an exact duplication of this sketch, or a variant that is created using this sketch as your inspiration.  I made my card 6x6 because it was easier to do the math!  I used scraps to make my card!

Now, for the fun part! Here is the prize I have put together to send to the lucky random winner (chosen by random.org)!  If you love VINTAGE, you'll definitely want to create something for that second chance!




And, here is how easy it is to enter for my random draw:
  • Be or become a member of Let’s Scrap which you can do by clicking here http://letsscrap.ning.com/.  It is free, easy and fast! Once you get there, I know you will love it and want to stay!
  • Be or become a follower of this blog.  That's easy, too.  Just go to the upper right-hand corner and click JOIN THIS SITE!
  • Leave me a comment telling me you were here (using Google Chrome or Firefox as your "search engine" is the best option, as Internet Explorer or IE does not always "play nice" with Blogger)!
  • And, if you would like a SECOND CHANCE in the draw, make a card of other project based on the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap.  Please "TAG" it: 8-18-10, LEAP18 exactly!  Note there is a space between the comma and LEAP, that LEAP is all caps, and the number 18 identifies my stop (and the sketch) on the hop. 
  •  Leave a second comment for me with a link to your card or project on the Let’s Scrap website.  


The hop ends at 11:59 p.m. Central Standard time, February 29, which you can track using the clock on the main page of the Let’s Scrap website.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  If you like what you see, please sign up for e-mail notifications of upcoming blog posts (upper right-hand corner).  

Your next stop on this great hop will be the talented Jen Leeflang.  You can find her at http://jencraftsa.blogspot.com/.  If you get lost along the way or have joined the hop in the middle, Mindi Brown at http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the blog hop order, and you can check her blog for directions.  You don’t want to miss any of the fun!

Thanks for coming by and for participating in the February 2012 Let's Scrap Leap Around the World Blog Hop!

  9. As you know, I am a follower and member of Let's Scrap. I am impressed with how many blogs I have seen your comments on already. I changed my blogger profile photo, so it would match the one on Let's Scrap so people would recognize me, but for some reason, my "old one" is still coming up when I "follow" a new blog? Weird.
