Birthday Bash for Scrapbook Challenges!!

Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges' Birthday Bash blog hop!! If you hopped here from Pamela's blog then you're in the right place!! If not, then you can start the hop back at her blog.

So, Scrapbook Challenges has been on Ning for one year! I can't believe it! And what a great year it has been! Before Ning, it was a Myspace group. But who uses Myspace anymore, right? I think SC has found a great home at Ning!

Anyways, for the hop we are all posting this sketch designed by the fabulous Pamela!
I really love this sketch! It's so creative and really did inspire me! My layout is a really simple one though. :)

Every year, I take a picture of our "family" of pumpkins while they're still in the wagon at the pumpkin patch. I just love it! And for some reason, I'm really feeling the burlap lately! I found 10ft of burlap garland at M's for like $4 and couldn't pass it up!

And now to the good stuff.. RAKs! Everyone who does a layout based on the sketch above and posts it in the Hop On section at Scrapbook Challenges will be entered to win one of Cosmo Cricket's most popular collections... The Early Bird Collection!! Also up for grabs is the It's Your Day collection from Fancy Pants (how fitting, right?). To be entered to win it, you have to comment on all of the blogs in the hop. If you join SC during the Birthday Bash, you will be entered to win Echo Park's Merry Christmas collection. Also, if you invite people to join SC during the bash, you will be entered to win October Afternoon's Road Map collection. To see pictures of these, check the Hop On section of SC!

And now to your next stop.....the fabulous and very talented Jowilna!!
