I'm so excited you've popped in!

It's SKETCHABILITIES first ever Blog Hop!

This blog hop is run a bit differently then others. There is an order for you to hop!

[1] Follow the hop by visiting Karan Gerber's blog first, find the word, and go to the next blog listed.

[2] For our followers to be considered for the final Sponsor Giveaway, you need to hop to Design Team Blogs that are participating in the blog hop in order. On those blogs, you will find a word in the colour Orange. Find the highlighted word, make note of it and leave some feedback. All these highlighted words combined form a catch phrase about Sketchabilities.

[3] You need to comment on each Designer Blog to be considered for the individual RAK the Design Team Members are offering............your last step..

[4] You will need to put that “catch” phrase together and bounce back to the Sketchabilities site to leave your final comment and the “catch” phrase. You'll have 5 days to complete the hop dates are Sept 15th until 20th! Winners of each DT Blog RAK and the Final Sponsor Giveaway prize will be posted Sept 22nd! Here you will find links to all the Sketchabiliies designers participating in the bounce. Each of them have a RAK to give away and all you need to do is leave them a comment on their blogs.

Below you will find a photo of the RAK that I'm offering to US residents. There are Thickers, Prima Flowers, Tim Holtz Distress Pads and some Puffy Butterflies.

Once you've left your comment here, be sure to zip over to Jenny Chesnick's Blog to see what she has in store for you.



Earlier this month, I was challenged to not use Patterned Paper on a layout...only cardstock. Let me just tell you how tough that is for me. I realize this layout is extremely simple, but it really makes you focus on the photos. I love the look on Blake's face as he's trying to blow out his birthday candles. I have very few photos of this face, because he eventually figured out how to do it correctly :)





Thanks for stopping by!
