Can you believe that a whole month has gone past.  I was very optimistic and thought I would get all 50 cards made, but alas only managed 14.  I also haven't updated my blog this month, purely because I didn't know how to keep the Blog Hop on the top.  I better start learning all these things soon.  I have had such fun reading your comments and seeing your cards.  Thank you so much for playing along and following my blog.  Cross fingers that you will be the winner of my RAK.  I will be doing the draw tomorrow morning SA time using the system to make it fair.

I will start posting what I have been up to next week just so that you know I have been busy.  Apart from my 14 cards, I made about 8 double page layouts.

Got to sign off now.  Sleep tight and for those of you who still have to load cards, make comments and become a follower you best hurry as time is running out.

Leap around the World Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to your next stop in the

If you came here from Sesil Cratin @ their blog then you are in the right place! If you did not, Mindi Brown @ has the hop order to help you find your way.

I am so excited to be a blog host for such a fun and huge blog hop! I joined the blog hop at Let's Scrap at the beginning of 2010 and it was loads of fun.  I got so many layouts completed and even won RAK!
Here is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop……

Here are my example(s)

In this card, the top strip says Happy Birthday which takes the form of the sentiment.  I dipped the edges of the pattern paper in water and rolled the edges to give the card a grungy look because it was for my son.

Both these cards were created for my son who just turned 21. Now for the fun part! Here is the RAK that I am offering!

Here is how easy it is to enter for my random draw:

*Be or become a member of Let’s Scrap which you can do by clicking here It is free, easy and fast! Once you get there, I am sure you will love it!

*Become a follower of my blog

*Leave me a comment telling me what you think of this sketch and the blog hop, and if you would like a second chance in the draw

*Make a card from the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap. Please tag it as 1-20-10, LEAP22.  Please note there is a space after the comma, and no space between LEAP and 22 and that LEAP is all capitals. 

*Leave a comment with a link to your card on Let’s Scrap.

The hop ends at 11:59 pm Central Standard time February 29th, which you would be able to track using the clock on the main page of Let’s Scrap.
