Apron Strings Blog Hop with a Giveaway!!

Welcome to my blog!! :) 

If you hopped on over from Melanie Holzwarth's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my blog in the middle of the blog hop, you can start at the beginning at the Apron Strings Blog

Apron Strings Designs is a monthly kit club that offers three new pre-coordinated kits each month that contain the latest releases of patterned paper, cardstock and embellishments; all that is needed are your words and photos.  Autoships start at just $16 for the Smaller than a Breadbox kit.....you can get all the great new products and still make your wallet happy.  Autoship members also enjoy no additional shipping on purchases when they are shipped with the monthly kit, unlimited penalty free skips, substitutions and flipping - all to be sure their kits work for them.  I have been getting autoship kits from them for 4 1/2 years now and I just love what comes in each and every one....it is like opening a wonderful gift each time.

Today, I am going to share with you this layout that I made with the September 2010 Smaller than a Breadbox Kit.  I used the October Afternoon set from that kit to create this layout about "where I am @ 35".

Now, on to the details of the hop. 

The Apron Strings Designs blog hop will go from today, Friday January 7th, until Sunday January 9th.  You need to hop along to each of the designers blog and leave comments along the way and collect phrases from each blog (mine is below in red).  After you have visited each of the blogs, you need to email ALL of the collected phrases to lori@apronstringsdesigns.com by Sunday evening. 

Up for grabs is a Basic Grey 2011 calendar kit. 

Why Apron Strings?

Sketches, for low-creativity moments
(the phrase to collect from my blog)

Winners will be drawn from comments on each of the designers blogs for a YUMMY Cookie Jar Treat (scrapping goodies), so don't forget to leave comments along the hop.  There will also be fun challenges to play along with on the Apron Strings Blog and more chances to win some more scrapping goodies.

Here is the blog hop list:
