Time to HOP!

Yep...the designers at Scrapping the Moments are hosting a blog hop! How fun is that! And guess what...I'm one of the designers! LOL!!! I just crack myself up sometimes.

So...if you came here from Diana's blog and her Sketch challenge, then you are in the right place...Otherwise head over the Jess's blog and her OLW challenge to get started!

Back to School - OH YEAH! Blog Hop! Good morning! I hope you are enjoying your hop around DT blogs so far! My challenge is the Scraplift challenge! This month I decided to challenge myself also. I am a pretty linear, clean, and simple scrapper. I decided I needed to get out of the box and do something with circles. I saw this wonderful layout by Pam and knew I had my lift. Check out Pam's wonderfully round-ish lo!I was also watching the Gymnastics nationals at the time with my daughter...circles, gymnastics...led to Olympics. Now, I had the rings and the photos and some of the other elements of the page...but it was missing something. Then Jess posted her watercolor layout! VIOLA...the final touch...some watercolors.

So my challenge to you is to lift Pam's lo, use circular photos, and get messy...use mists, water colors, paints...whatever! Get out of your box!
My take:
And....to spice things up during our little hop...I've decided to offer a RAK! Oh yeah...and not just any RAK, a copy of Betsy Flot's Inspiration Station. This is a got to have book for all scrappers. There are 606 pages of quotes, titles, and ideas. This is a $30 book. Check it out --> Inspiration Station.

All you have to do for a chance at this awesome book...is do the challenge, post it here on the challenge thread at Scrapping the Moments by September 15th, and leave a comment on this blog post. Decide to follow my blog for an extra draw for the book.

Easy Peasy...can't wait to see what you create!

Now off to the next stop on the hop...which is Jessica's blog.
