My Scraps & More New Year's Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Scraps & More first blog hop! The arrival of a new year always brings resolutions along with it. We at My Scraps & More are focusing on these resolutions all through the month of January with a crop on the forum and we are starting it off with a blog hop! This is the order of the hop:My Scraps & More blog(you are here),Lisa(go here next) ,Shawna, Janelle, and Tracy. As you hop along to each of the Design Team's blogs you will be collecting "ingredients" to our New Year's recipe. After you have collected all the ingredients, create a layout using those "ingredients". Post a comment on the My Scraps & More blog with a link to your layout. Layouts are due Sunday, January 8, 11:59 pm. I will randomly select a winner(using for the grand prize of Fancy Pants Winterland paper collection. Be sure to watch along the way as some of the design team members are giving away RAKs with their own requirements. For all of those leaving a comment here in my post, I will draw for a RAK of mine as well!! Happy Hopping!

My New Years Resolution is to spend more "family time." Don't get me wrong, I spend a lot of time with my family but it may be doing homework, making dinner or simply watching t.v.. All of those are important times but I want to have more FUN family times!! For my layout I used a picture of me and the kids on our trip to New York City this past summer! It was such a fun time just hanging out together!!

The ingredient that you have to take away from my layout and include on your own is CHIPBOARD! Now you need to hop on over to Lisa's blog here!!

Don't forget to join in at the message board for a whole month of great resolution challenges to start creating into the New Year!!

Happy hopping and Happy New Year to you!!!!

12 Days of Christmas Challenge of Challenges

Hi all! Over on the message board we recently celebrated the 12 Days of christmas with a new challenge for each of the 12 day. On the 13th day, our design team put up the challenge to create a layout using something from each of the 12 days! this was the challenge...

1 handmade embellishment

2 different title fonts

3 ribbons or trims

4 colors minimum

5 circles

6 pattern papers minimum

7 strips of paper

8 of anything you chose

9 squares

10 buttons

11 eyelets or brads

12 pieces of a banner

We have had a couple who complete this and I wanted to share their creations here. You would think that they would look kind of, what do I want to say..."full" but they are both awesome! The first layout is by Wendy Crowe and the second is by design team member Tracy Rhodes...

Are you up for the challenge? Complete a layout by the end of January 1st, link it up here in the comment thread and I will draw for a winner for a $5 gift card to the store!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

The Many Days of Christmas from My Scraps & More!

Due to some unforseen problems with my dog, I have been unable to get the last few Days of Christmas savings out to you. Today, I am going to combine 5 days into one email which adds up to lots of saving and freebies for you!

On the 11th Day of Christmas, My Scraps & More gave to me...

Today is a GREAT day!!

Good Morning! Today is a great day!! For one, it is my birthday!!! I still love my birthday even if that means I am getting older and older. I feel like a little kid at times, reminding my family that my birthday is coming. Not because I want to get presents, but just because I am excited!! Silly, I know, but I can't help it! Speaking of presents, I have a cute story to share... this weekend my daughter took my son (he's 10) to the mall because he insisted on wanting to get me a gift. After they got back, he picked up my gloves from the counter and said, 'Are these yours?" After I told him that they were, his response was, "well, looks like I just wasted some money." Wonder what he got me for my birthday?? Too cute!! If any of you know me at all, I can ALWAYS use gloves!! If I am right, I know that I will love 'em!!

Today is also a great day because it is... The 6th Day of Christmas. For the 6th day (and to help celebrate my birthday) take 30% off all orders today excluding gift certificates! Use code bday1206 at checkout to receive your savings!!! This is good today only!

It is also the 6th Day of Christmas on our message board challenges and it is my turn for the challenge! On the 6th Day of Christmas My Scraps & More gave to me... 6 patterned papers to decorate my tree! The challenge is to use 6 differnet patterned papers on your layout! I used Bella blvd's "Making the Team" collection and a sketch from Page Maps for my page. What do ya think? Hope you like my page and the challenge and head to the forum and play along with it and all of the other great challenges posted there!

Off to do some fun Christmas shopping today. I hope that your day is awesome!!

December Sketch and a winner announced!

Good Morning! I hope that this December month has started out fabulous for you! Today I am going to post the new sketch but I have decided to do things a little differently. There has not been as many participating in the sketches each week as I would like, so I have decided to create one sketch a month and post it on the first Friday, instead of one every week. Hopefully more of you will be able to play along this way!! Here is the sketch for December...

and here is what I came up with using the great Bo Bunny "Liberty" collection which worked great for our NYC pictures...

Please upload a link to your layouts using this sketch at this post by the end of December. I will announce a winner with January's sketch! What are you playing for?? How about the "Saint Nick" collection from Fancy Pants Designs!! And the winner from the November sketches... WendyCrowe ! Congrats girl! Please email me your mailing information so that I can get your prize out to you!!

Have a great weekend!
