My Scraps and More 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

Tracy (you are here)

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.

Tammi will randomly select a winner for the grand prize of Fancy Pants Winterland paper collection.

Watch along the way, some of the design team are giving away RAKs with their own requirements.

Happy Hopping!

My New Years resolution is to try to take more advantage of all the little moments.  I need to not let life get so overwhelming that I don't have time when one of my little ones ask to play a game or read a book.  After all "they are only young once"   Here is the LO I created.

The ingredient you must use on your LO is at least 2 different fonts in your title.  Now make sure you have picked up all the other ingredients along the hop and then lets see what you can create.  Pop back over to the My Scraps and More blog and link your LO to the blog hop post to be elibigle for that great prize.

But wait there is one more prize you can win.  I'm offering up a RAK right here.  All you have to do is become a follower if you are not already one and leave a comment below.  I will randomly draw a name from the comments at the end of the blog hop.

I hope you have found lot's of inspiration along hop and can't wait to see what you create!! 

Happy New Year!!!!

The glory of Autumn

Colorful Creations challenge was to create a Thanksgiving tradition LO.  Well we developed a new tradition a few years ago.  We now go on vacation over Thanksgiving and enjoy spending time as a family.  So I created a LO about one of our vacations.

My Masterpiece

Finally I have finished scrapping all of the Halloween photos, well at least the ones from 2010.  Haven't even printed 2011 yet.  I used a sketch from Scrap Whispers.

Spending some relaxing time by the lake!  I used a sketch from Sketch Inspiration for this LO, Frosted Designs ribbon challenge, and Scrap Whispers challenge.

Baby It's Cold Outside

It only took a little over a year but I have finally finished scrapping our trip to Colorado last year.  The boys loved the hot tub, and thought it was pretty neat that they were in water when there was snow in the ground.  I used a sketch from Frosted Designs for this LO and for the Scrap Whispers challenge.

Workout #58

It's time for another challenge over at ScrapFit!  Workout #58 is all about mini pictures.  I love the look of using small pictures on a LO, of course since I print all my pictures out in bulk 4x6 I can't do it too often since it would mean cutting a lot of things out of the picture.  But I try whenever I can.  Here is the LO I created with 3 mini pictures of my daughter Autumn at the park.

 If you are up for the challenge create a LO with mini pictures and link it up to the ScrapFit blog here.  You could be the lucky winner of this fabulous prize from Paper Lovelies.

On the 5th day of Christmas

Sorry no golden rings being handed out here.  At My Scraps and More it is time for my 5th day of Christmas challenge.  On the 5th day of Christmas my true love gave to me 5 colorful rings.  That's right my challenge is to use at least 5 rings or circles on a page.  You can use more as long as they are in multiples of 5.  I used 25.  Come visit us over at My Scraps and More to see all the other fabulous challenges going on.  I used a sketch from Crafty Sketches for this LO.

Workout #57

Time for a new workout at ScrapFit.  This one is called "Word of the Year"!  Show us what you can come up with in one word to describe how you want to embrace the new year.  I chose the word Peace.  It seems with 3 very active kids life is very chaotic and all I want is some peace!  This is a LO of my oldest hanging out at the pond by our house.

Creat a LO with your one word and link it up to the ScrapFit blog to be eligible for a prize from our sponsor Paper Lovelies.  They are giving away the fabulous For the Record kit.
