First 'Evah' Crop Circles Blog Hop



Welcome to the first ever Crop Circles blog hop!! We are a group of ladies who share ideas and inspiration on all kinds of scrappy projects. Most of us are either Newfoundlanders or have a link to the island. We thought we'd share some inspiration with you!! We decided to use the sketch on sketchbook365 to showcase our many different styles. Please leave some love for the bloggers along the way. For every comment you leave your name will be entered to win a Stampin' Up bundle valued at $75. You have until end of day March 3rd (my 40th birthday yeehaw!!) to post comments for a chance at that fabulous prize.

You should have arrived here from Darlene's blog. If not, check out the list below to take part in the entire hop.

Cheryl Ashworth (with Shar Strahan & Brande Strahan)
Rhea Skomorowski (with Natasha Connolly)
Corina Thorne  < ~~ That's moi
Cathy Caines (with Rexene Lockyer)
 
Here is the sketch we took inspiration from:


Here is my take on the sketch:



I decided to use up (some of) what's left of a K & Company paper pack as I liked the pinks in it. You'll see some Authentique as well in the bingo card. And old Fancy Pants (I think) in the title sticker. The blue paper is also FB. I have already scrapped this pic for MM's album but I like it so much I'm going to do it for "my" album too. Have you ever done that? Liked a pic so much you use it more than once?  I'm still going strong with using up my stash - even though I just received some new MME papers and I'm dying to use them lol. I've been weeding out the extra's and passing them along to a good friend who is just starting to scrapbook.

As the hop closes on my 40th birthday I thought I would offer a little blog candy to a random visitor. Make sure you check back on March 4th in case you win. I am willing to ship to the Canada/US only (sorry). If you would like a chance to win my little prize, please become a follower and let me know in the comments below. If you want a second chance, share my blog via social media, either twitter / pinterest / your blog / facebook, then come back and let me know in another comment.


I may add a few more things to it.....we'll see :)


So now you should be heading over to Sara's blog. Hope this encourages you to participate in the sketch challenge over at sketchbook365. The challenge there closes on March 15th so you still have loads of time.....what are ya waiting for?

Thanks for stopping by, and happy scrapping :)
