New Year's Blog Hop


There's a great blog hop going on over at Scrapbook Challenges. They have TONS of prizes to give away!! Here's a little of what you could win!


They also have a great sketch for you to work on!!

Here's my take on it! As usual, I kinda go off on my own tangent when it comes to sketches, but thanks to the sketch, I have a great starting point!

My Secret Santa sent me Reflection's Rockets and Sprockets line which I used for my papers. I thought it was fitting! I used my Cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking for the circle. I corner rounded all my edges and inked them as well; just so they didn't look so flat. I decided to outline the white letters so they didn't get lost on the papers. I also blurred out the phone numbers just for this post (for security reasons, of course).

Want 5 chances to win this.....?

GREAT! 1-Leave your comment. 2-Follow this blog. 3&4-Follow my other 2 blogs. Once the Hop is over, I will choose someone at random! Remember each thing gets you another chance to win!
PLUS #5, if you post my link on YOUR blog, that's another chance to win!!! Good luck and have fun on the Hop!!!

Get started over at Pamela's Blog to see a world of inspiration!

Also, dont' forget to pop into the HopOn board once you're through the hop for a wonderful extra surprise!!

I plan to work on this sketch and post as soon as I am done.....So, check back for my completed LO!
