Make sure to visit each blog on this hop to see the awesome "furry" projects we have for you. There is blog candy along the way as well.
There are 7 of us participating in the hop; we are all online scrapbooking friends from the Yahoo group Scrappin N Chattin. SnC is an email forum where we share our love for this hobby, as well as everyday life. We are a pretty chatty group. And we have a lot of fun activities, challenges, and prizes to jumpstart your creativity and keep your scrappin' goals.
One of the challenges that we have each SnC is the Monthly Layout and Card Challenges. Each month, our list Mom, Abby, gives us a list of 5 layout challenges and 3 card challenges we can follow. We post our creations to special folders on the group site each month. At the beginning of the next month, Abby does a drawing for a winner of all of the participants who entered. These are our challenges this month:
SC '12 June Layout Challenges: 1. Dad - In honor of Fathers Day, create a layout about any father. 2. No angles - Create a layout without using any pointed right angles. 3. Rays - Create a sunray or sunburst effect on your layout. 4. Be - Begin your layout title with "Be ......". 5. Colors - Include teal, red and yellow in your layout. SC'12 June Card Challenges: 1. Banner - Include a banner on your card. 2. Colors - Include brown, blue and yellow on your card. 3. Mask - Include masking on your card.
I created this page to enter into the Colors challenge - using teal, red and yellow. I used Echo Park's Happy Days collection. Perfect for this challenge. The subjects are my doggies Tessa and Willie. We had to turn the AC on for the first time on Memorial Day. The dogs discovered the cool air coming from the floor vent, and Willie laid over the whole thing. Tessa looked at me like MOM!!! Eventually Willie moved and Tessa had the vent to herself.
I also followed the sketch from the monthly sketch challenge at SnC. One of our members, Theresa, creates a great sketch each month. Here is this month's sketch:
Oh, blog candy. I have some fun candy to offer. Please become a follower and leave me a comment on this post to have a chance to win the Jubilee Cricut cartridge.
I am so glad that you stopped by my blog today. I hope you visit again soon. The winner of the blog candy will be announced Thursday. Make sure to stop back by. The next and final stop of the "Friends Furever" hop is Abby at Midwest Memories. Enjoy...
