Blog hop, rak, birthday card crop! OH MY

Are you ready to get your crop on? Then join us at the Let's Capture Our Memories forum right now for 8 card sketches and lots of inspiration so you can get your groove on. We also have some layout challenges, games and just plain FUN!
We also have a tutorial on how to make an easy card organizer for you to get organized and make your own handmade cards for the year.

Here's my first card I's based off of Monique's sketch. I did not use Monique's secret element on my card!

Here's my second card I's based off of Joanne's sketch and I did use Joannes secret element!~

Here's the third card I's based off of Tanya's sketch and I did not use her secret element.

Here's the fourth card I's based off of Sandi's sketch and I did use her secret element.

Here's the fifth card I's based off of Kimberly's sketch and I had fun using her secret element.

Here's the sixth card I's based off of Anita's sketch and I did use her secret element.

Here is the seventh card I made... this one is based on Rusha's sketch and without a doubt that secret element is there!

And here's my sketch that I created, I did this a couple weeks back and was so excited as this was my first sketch ever. If you go through all the blogs you will be able to see everyone else's sketch. Better yet go to the forum and see them all in one place!

And my card to go with my sketch. Can you guess what my secret element is? If you guess my secret element and use it on your card or layout, you will get an extra point. Check out the forum or the other blogs and see who else used it. That will give you some help! I am sure you can figure it out!

You have until January 23rd 8PM EST to complete all 8 sketches and also the other challenges (layouts, etc.). You'll get a point for each sketch you complete and a point for each secret element you get correct. You can also get points for completing the card organizer. You don't have to use birthday theme if you don't want to. Grab this blinkie and when you are finished with them all and tell us you are finished at the forum. Winners will be announced on January 26th...a first and second prize.

Now for my RAK...all you have to do is leave a comment to be eligible. I will announce the winner here on my blog on Tuesday, January 18th.

A $15.00 gift certificate to the LET'S CAPTURE OUR MEMORIES STORE!!

So once you have left your comment it is time to hop!

You should have started at THE LET'S CAPTURE OUR MEMORIES blog

then you are here at So Many Scraps the next stop on the hop (hey I am good that rhymes!)

Next hop over and say hi to Jerusha @ I LOVE PAPERCRAFTING
Have fun hopping, scrapping and maybe winning!!!

I have decided to do a photo a day.. 365 photos for 2011. I am debating whether to just post them here or start another blog for them or post them on facebook! Please give me your opinions! I am offering a rak, which I will draw from all the comments that give me an opionion! I will draw for the rak Monday the 17th. So you must post your comment by Sunday the 16th at 6pm EST. So for those who visit during the blog hop and post on both posts you will have a chance at two different Raks!!! WOOT WOOT!

sorry it's been a bit!

The Christmas season was a bit overwhelming for me this year and I am feeling a bit behind on many things, including my blogging!!
Usually my tree is up the day after thanksgiving and this year it was up only a few weeks before Christmas!! Then usually I leave the main tree up till New years day and my snowman tree and snowmen decorations up till late feb/early march. But this year I feel like I can't wait to put it all away and get some order back to my life! Maybe because we have a lot of company lately and I feel like I can never keep ahead of the housework! I love seeing my grandboys but I admit it is hard for this old lady to keep the place clean with all the company!

Well anyways I have been busy though as I am getting ready for a wonderful birthday card crop and blog hop! I am so excited that I am once again on the card team at Let's Capture our Memories! So stop in and join our birthday Crop and blog hop! There will be some fabulous prizes for the crop and raks for the blog hop!
