Come On Over & HOP ON this NSD!

Good day everyone! Hop is always fun isn't it? Thanks for stopping by my blog today, if you happen to just stopped by my blog, we are doing a blog hop today over at Scrapbook Challenges and you have to start at Pamela's Blog.

So what do we have in store for you this National Scrapbooking Day? Well, huge huge prizes are up for grabs of course, lots of challenges and games over at the forum and fun fun chats with some of us SC girls and our awesome group of members.  This hop is especially for National Scrapbooking Day but we'd also like to welcome the new gals joining us and at the same time say thanks to the ladies who have graced SC the last few months.

If you don't know yet, I'm a returning DT at SC and I am just lovin' Pamela's sketches!.  I've been scrapping actively for close to a year now and I am from Manila, Philippines. This addiction started when I joined a local contest here we called "Scappin Idol".  I didn't win that but I'm thankful I took the plunge though I barely just started scrapping then because it kicked off this need to scrap often. Before that, I only really just shop scrapbook stuff and don't really use 'em.  Literally just SHOP PERIOD. But after seeing what I "can" actually do, it flicked this fire in me. What drama huh? LOL.

I've been married for a year and about 4 months now, no kids yet and just enjoying our life together at the moment. We're big on travels and really put a priority on that so most of my pages are really about our adventures. I try to scrap as often as I can despite what my corporate world demands, if you know what I mean. I work full time and also do consultancy work from time to time.

I've always loved vintage style and looks on my layouts but lately I have been really trying out clean and simple layouts and I am really lovin' it. so I guess I'm still on the discovery phase and I love it. I really don't want to stick to just one style too and I always like to try out new things whether it's tools, techniques, etc.

For this hop, Pamela has created a sketch - one pager and a two pager. Why not try your hands on it? What if I tell you, you could win a the latest My Family Fancy Pants Collection? Motivated now? I bet you are! Go grab your stuff now and get started!



Here's my take on the one pager. Materials I used are all from My Minds Eye Quite Contrary collection.



Some close ups....

And here is what's up for grab!!! I especially love the colors of this collection don't you? So HOP ON girls and do your takes on the sketch!


Now for simply leaving comments on all the blogs on this hop you could win this LOVELY April Scarlet Lime Kit! Gorgeous isn't it?


And for a special treat, for simply becoming a member at SC and for inviting your friends over (through the invite tab in the ning site), you could win this PRIMA goodies!!! Yummy enough?


BUT WAIT! Hold your horses becaus THERE's MORE! Now I didn't mean to sound like the TV Shopping network here but for becoming a follower of my blog and leaving a comment here that you've followed, I'm giving away this small treat from my stash. I'm giving away one locally and one more for international followers. Let me know also where you're from so I can easily filter for the drawings. :)  Forgive me though because I have not asked our post office yet how much it is to ship international but if the shipping costs more than the actual stash, I will just give out a GC for two peas. I hope that's okay. :)

Here's the local pack. MM Journaling notepads, Maya Road journaling and flower sheers, Tim Holtz tickets, 7 Gypsies ATC transparecy, Chipboards, K&CO tags, local ribbons, Imaginisce stickers, misc. stickers, rob and bob studio small clipboard.

International is this one. But it could also be a GC for Two Peas. MM Journaling notepads, My Little yellow Bicycle Calendar Journal Tablet, Maya Road Jounaling and flower sheers and arrow felts, Tim holtz tickets, Mis stickers, Local trims.


Thanks for hopping on, now head on over to KAREN's BLOG for more inspiration!!!

Cheers!!!
Cathy
