Come Join the Let's Scrap Blog Hop!!


You are at Blog Hop #2 on the Let's Scrap Blog Hop!!  **Play along until May 21st!**
National Scrapbooking Day was last weekend, right?  Well not at Let's Scrap.  We are celebrating our scrapbooking ALL MONTH LONG.  We started with some great games and challenges during NSD weekend, and now we are back with the Let's Scrap Design Team Blog Hop.  Below you will find a list of those DT's who are joining us in the blog hop.  Each stop on the hop will offer you a different challenge.  Become a follower of each Design Team Member's blog and as you complete each challenge, upload your finished project to http://www.letsscrap.ning.com.   Return to each blog and make sure to leave a comment letting us know that you have completed the challenge and uploaded it to Let's Scrap.  Make sure you tag your project with the appropriate tag (you will find those instructions on each of our blogs-ie:  bloghop1, bloghop2, etc.).

Each Design Team member will randomly select a winner of a small prize for
participating.  For the ULTIMATE challenge, and for a chance to win a $50
gift certificate to A Cherry On Top http://www.acherryontop.com, complete the challenges you will find on EACH stop on the blog hop.  Make sure to tag your uploads properly so you are sure to be entered into the random drawing.

You can start anywhere along the way within this great group of blogs and
each one will link from one site to the next where you will find all the
great challenges!  And the best part is you have two complete weeks to
upload your challenge entries.  Even if you don't win the grand prize, if
you choose to complete all the challenges available, just think, you will
have 10 completed projects! 

So, here is my challenge here on Creative Chat:
1)  Use the sketch below to create a layout.
2)  Use some sort of metal embellishment on your layout.
3)  Use quotation marks on your layout.

That's it!!  **Make sure to upload your layout at Let's Scrap and tag it Bloghop2.** 

Here's the sketch (compliments of Cheri at Let's Scrap, of course!):

 
 And here's my take on this challenge:




I quoted what my son said to me in these pictures for the title and journaling.  I also used a metal charm that says "sweet" and a little safety pin on the tag.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have fun completing this challenge!  Remember to become a follower and return to leave a comment after completing each challenge.  I will randomly select a winner for my own blog to win a sweet little RAK from me (see below)!  You have until May 21st - so get hopping!
