THE LET'S SCRAP LEAP AROUND THE WORLD BLOG HOP - WINNER ANNOUNCED



The winner of my Blog Hop Rak was Teresa Davis.  Thank you to all of you who entered my draw. 
I am so happy that you decided to join us for the Let’s Scrap Leap Around the World Blog Hop.  For those of you who are new to the site, Let’s Scrap has a wonderful group of international scrapbookers who encourage and motivate each other in our love for scrapping!  It has amazing two page sketches and cards for you to use as your inspiration and there are many challenges and tutorials for you to do each month.  

Now on to the hop!

           YOU ARE AT STOP #4 ON THE BLOG HOP.  If you came here from the very talented Jennifer Russell’s blog ( http://scrapinexpecttheunexpected.blogspot.com/ ), then you are in the right place! If you did not, Mindi Brown (the coordinator of this great event) at http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the order to help you find your way.

            I am so excited to be 1 of 50 blog hosts for this amazing event. Here is the Let’s Scrap sketch (created by Sketch Artist Debby de Wilde) I am showcasing for the hop:



And, here is my interpretation of this great sketch.

I used the Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime paper line for my card along with some CTMH cardstock.  I even pulled out my sewing machine to add a little something extra to it.

 Now, for the fun part” Here is the RAK I have put together to send to one lucky random winner.

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 (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 (or layout if you prefer) based on the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap.  Please "TAG" it: 4-15-09, LEAP4  Note there is no space between the word LEAP and the number 4.  Please make sure to tag your project properly so that it will not get missed in the draw for my RAK
  •  Leave a second comment for me with a link to your card or layout in the Let’s Scrap gallery and you will get your name into my draw a second time.
 The hop ends at 11:59 p.m. Central Standard time, February 29th, which you can track using the clock on the main page of the Let’s Scrap website.


YOUR NEXT STOP ON THE HOP IS THE TALENTED SUE COLERICK. YOU CAN FIND HER AT  http://creativitybug.blogspot.com/.   


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