Happy New Year & Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop
Happy New Year!! Wish all of you all the best for 2010. We had a nice new year's day yesterday. We went over to my dh's parents and had black eyed peas and hog jowl. It is our tradition to eat them on New Year's day. I was going to make my very first post this year my new year's resolutions but the first thing first. Scrapbook Challenges knows very well how to kick of the new year right. They are hosting a blog hop this weekend. It started yesterday and goes on until January 3rd. They have a large, talented group of designers to offer inspirations and motivation and this blog hop is to visit their blogs. Scrapbook Challenges offers weekly challenges and sketches, too and this hop includes a fab sketch. By visiting designer's blogs, you can see each designer's take on the same sketch. I have visited them all yesterday and was amazed how the sketch can be interpreted so many ways. And not only getting inspired, you may be able to grab some RAKs along the way. Pamela explains all the details on her blog including the pictures of the giveaway packages. You can also join the hop by creating a layout based on the same sketch. Here is the link to Hop On thread where you can see other members' pages and blogs and share your creation and blog link. I worked on mine today. Below is the sketch and my take. Here is the link to Pamela Young's blog, the first stop. Have fun!!
