Scrapbook Challenges Pit Stop #4

Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges' 3rd 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. If you've come by Wendy's blog then you're on the right track coz I am your fourth stop! If you just stopped in, please make sure that you start at Pamela's blog first so that you won't miss out on any inspiration. And, I would just like to give a shout out to the new Scrapbook Challenges' design team members. I tell you, their work are amazing and this hop is a great way to get to know them!

Before I proceed, I would like to thank Pamela and Scrapbook Challenges. Just feel honored to have been given the chance to join this hop even as an outgoing DT member!

Scrapbook Challenges is a NING-based forum. It has been around since 2007 in MySpace! 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 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!!!


Let this year be bountiful as these RAKs being given away today :

1. One lucky person who leaves a comment on all of the blogs in the DT/GDT blog hop will win a collection of goodies from My Little Shoebox. Yummy, I tell ya!



2. One person who does the sketch and posts in the Hop On section will win the Origins collection from Basic Grey. What are you waiting for???



3. Two packs from Prima Marketing


  • one will go to someone who JOINS the group this weekend
  • AND, the other will go to someone who INVITES someone to the group this weekend (through the invite link on the group)
4. Another RAK goes to one person who leaves a comment on the blogs in the Hop On section. They will receive an album and a bunch of trim from Rusty Pickle.


5. Lastly, a little RAK from me and to be entered to the drawing, just leave a comment on what's your goal for 2010. *wink*



Now, hop on to one of Scrapbook Challenges' new design team member, DEBI!
