Scrapbook Challenges' NSD Blog Hop!!



Happy National Scrapbooking Day!! Welcome to the Scrapbook Challenges' National Scrapbook Day blog hop, which runs from today through Sunday! You should be arriving from Annie's blog. If you just stopped by and didn't realize there was a hop going on, visit Pamela's blog to start hopping!

First off, let me introduce myself. I'm Dani, and I'm new to the design team at Scrapbook Challenges this term. Chances are, if you are in the group already, you've seen me around (if you haven't joined yet, you definitely should!). I am a stay at home mom and wife. I've been married for nearly 4 years and we have a 9 month old son. I've been scrapping for quite some time now, but I wasn't "serious" about it until my son was born. Once he was born, it seemed more important to start preserving our little every day memories. When I'm not scrapbooking or crafting of some sort, I like to spend time outdoors either doing something active, practicing my mad photography skills (haha.. yeahhhh...), or hanging out at the beach or park enjoying the scenery. I'm super excited about joining this wonderful DT, and I can't wait to get into the full swing of things! And again, I urge you all to join in the fun at Scrapbook Challenges!

For the hop, we are all doing our take on this sketch.

(Pamela is awesome, and always provides a 2-page version of each sketch as well)


Here's my take:



But wait! There's more! (I've always wanted to say that.. haha) There's RAKs involved! Make that FABULOUS RAKs involved! One lucky lady (or gentleman) that comments on all of the blogs in the hop will win the April Scarlet Lime kit! Have y'all seen it?! It's amazing.. it has some of Lily Bee Design's Hello Sunshine collection, which I just LOVE. Also, everyone who does a layout based on the sketch above and posts it in the Hop On section of Scrapbook Challenges will be entered to win the "My Family" line from Fancy Pants Designs (also fabulous!!!). On top of that, there is a Prima RAK up for joining Scrapbook Challenges, and also a Prima RAK for inviting to Scrapbook Challenges.

I hope you enjoyed your visit at my blog! I would love for you to become a follower and stick around to see what else I have in store! Your next stop is Sarah Eclavea! I know you will LOVE her blog, so hop on over there and check it out!!
