Welcome to another installment of the Scrapbook Challenges Seasons of Change Blog Hop! I hope you're enjoying your little trip through the interweb...if you've just stumbled upon me here (or have gotten lost along the way), you can find the beginning of the train at Brynn Marie's site.
We have a new crop of Design Team members joining the hop this season, so let me re-introduce myself. I'm Chanell, a resident digi-designer. I'm proud mama to four babies and a fur-baby, wife to a high school statistics teacher, and crazy woman who is packing to move in a month. If you would, kindly say a prayer that our sale is finalized, we find a new house and I stay sane enough to keep designing! Hahaha!
Speaking of designing, Brynn has put together a festive little sketch for the hop, and it's been a ton of fun to work with it!
It was the perfect direction to take a little scrapper redo of one of the first pages I ever designed. It has been one of those "great idea, poorly executed" layouts that has always kinda bugged me. You know the kind? Here's my new page using Brynn's sketch (you can click to enlarge it):
Summertime Toes by Chanell Rigterink Credits Digital Kit: NSD 2011 Designer Blog Hop Collab by Design House Digital; Photo Corner: Gunhild Storeide; Border: Doodle Borders by Sahlin Studio; Sketch: SS01 by Brynn Marie; Font: Vaguely Repulsive
Ahhh, much better. I love how the layering turned out, and I would never have thought of it without the sketch! Yay!
Ok, so, down to business. Prizes!
1. For one person who leaves a comment on all the blogs in the hop, they will get the Salt Air Collection from Cosmo Cricket.
2. For one person who does a layout based on the sketch and posts in the HOP ON section, will receive a $20.00 USD Gift Certificate to Scrapbook.com.
3. For inviting people to join the group one person will receive a mix of alcohol ink goodies from Ranger*.
4. One new member over the weekend will ALSO receive a mix of alcohol ink goodies from Ranger*.
*colors may vary.
Awesome, right? Thanks for hoppin' by and sayin' hi! I look forward to seeing your take on the sketch in the gallery this weekend!
Your next stop on the hop is with one of our new members, Eka!
