Scrapbook Challenges Pit Stop #2

The fun has started!

Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges first ever DT Blog Hop!

If this is your first time here, I am Sookie aka as Salme in some forums. I am your second stop on the hop.

Do make sure you start from Pamela’s blog to follow the blog hop so that you do not miss out on any inspiration from her. Pamela's blog is oozing of inspiration, gorgeous layouts/cards and stories about her beautiful family! She has been published many times. And just recently, she made it to a manufacturer design team? Woohoo! I am so happy for her! She is very, very talented and I am so glad that I became part of this group she started in 2007!

Our group, Scrapbook Challenges, is in Myspace. Every week, Pamela issues an original sketch to challenge your creative side. Her sketches are awesome, versatile and over the time that I've been with the group, my creativity has grown leaps and bounds because of her sketches. Plus, aside from the sketches, the design team also issues challenges and tutorials every week. In short, Scrapbook Challenges is a one stop-shop.

It doesn't stop there. What's a challenge without a reward? Every month, if you make a layout from the sketch and participate in the DT issued challenges,your name will get to be in a drawing for an awesome prize! (Usually prizes are sponsored by our favorite manufacturers, kit clubs and more.)

So, What are you waiting for? If you're not a member yet, please join us in SC! (after you've completed the blog hop, that is ~~~ you have a few more to go heehee).

I'm rattling too much, right and you want to know whatt's in store for you on this blog hop???

Well,

1. Our first RAK is the May main kit from Scarlet Lime!!!! Click here for pictures of the kit and a list of contents. How do you get a chance to win this? All you have to do is participate in this blog hop and leave a comment on all of the blogs!You've already been to two blogs, 8 more to go!!!
2. Our second RAK is for the lucky person who creates a layout from the exclusive blog hop sketch that was designed by Pamela (please see the sketch below)! Then you can post a link here, or on Pamela's blog or in Scrapbook Challenges group. You will get the chance to win this awesome "Glossary" Add-on Kit and Carter
Stamp Set from Studio Calico.

Glossary Add-On Kit :


Carter Stamp Set from Studio Calico:
3. The third RAK requires a little detective work but the prize is the yummy stamp set from Unity Stamp Company:


To join the third RAK, all you have to do is send an emai to
pamelacy@msn.com, with the answers to these questions:

1. Which one of the DT members can taste something from a restaurant 1 - 2 times and recreate that meal? (Such an AWESOME skill by the way)
2. Which member of the DT almost made it to the national fencing team when she was in college?
3. Which DT member daydreams of painting her mustang Barbie pink?
4. Which Scrapbook Challenges DT member was missing from our blog hop this weekend?

All winners will be announced Monday May 25th!

Here is the sketch that Pamela designed for this blog hop :


And here is my layout based on the sketch:

Remember, you can win a prize by completing a layout based on this sketch! Don't forget to link up!

Some random facts about me :

1. I was a junk food addict! I eat way too much chips (potato, corn, you name it!) that I decided to stop. I've been "sober" for almost 11 months now.
2. My youngest daughter and I look so much alike.
3. I don't like washing the dishes. I can do other household chores with gusto though.
4. I am terrified of cockcroaches that I scream even when I see a dead one.
5. My birthday is a day before my grandmother so I was named after her. Her name is Socorro which means help.

I will also be giving away a RAK. To be in the drawing, please leave a comment telling me which design team did Pamela recently joined. Plus if you want another chance on this rak below, please hop on to my sister's blog --->http://cjalmeda.blogspot.com (it's her birthday today and she's giving away some goodies too!) and give her some loving (please tell her I sent you). *wink*

RAK from me :


Thank you very much for reading this far *wink*... Really happy that you came by!

Now hop on over to the simple and loving mom, Rowena Ortile!
