Scrapbook Challenges Pit Stop #2


Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges' 2nd DT Blog Hop!

I am so glad you stopped by my humble abode. If this is your first time here, I am Sookie or Salme in most forums. I am your second stop in this hop! If you just stopped in, please make sure that you stop by Pamela's blog first so that you won't miss out on any inspiration from her. I tell you, her work is just amazing!

Our group, Scrapbook Challenges, is in MySpace. And, it's been there since 2007! Every week, Pamela issues an original sketch to challenge your creative side. Aside from the sketches, the design team also issues challenges, "games" and tutorials. If you need mojo-booster, join us at Scrapbook Challenges (that is, if you're not a member yet)!

Do you think it stops there? Na-ah! What's a challenge without a prize?! Every month, if you make a layout from the sketch/challenges, you are entered into a monthly draw for that month's grand prize! And, let me tell you, the prizes are AWESOME!!! Take a peek at this month's sponsored grand prize and you'll believe me!

On to our blog hop... Pamela conceptualize this sketch specifically for this event! She's so uber talented!

Here's my take on the sketch :

5 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME

  1. I like watching NBA.
  2. My husband's surname is my father's middle name. And NOOO, my husband and I are not related.
  3. I can sleep late and wake up early.
  4. I have been in Singapore for 10 years now.
  5. And, I haven't visited the Philippines for almost 4 years.

So, ok... Let's get back to the hop. Here's what's in store for you this weekend!

b. Everybody who does a layout based on the blog hop sketch will be eligible for the draw to this fabulous stamp from Unity Stamp Company.

2. Name one of our newest DT members.

4. Which Scrapbook Challenges DT member also designs for Scrap Within Reach?
5. Are you a member of Scrapbook Challenges on MySpace?

A recent blessing that has happend for me is the time that I spent with my kiddos this summer. We didn't go anywhere special out of the area but we did spend alot of time together as a family which isn't always easy to do during the school year.

Awesome layout, Sookie! Love the colors you used and how you cut out some of the paper.
