Ring in the New Year BLOG HOP at My Scraps!

Welcome to the My Scraps and More Ring In the New Year Blog Hop!! There is something about the New Year that gets everyone motivated to get things done. We want to help you get your scrappy mojo going in the New Year. This is our first ever Blog Hop for the My Scraps and More Sketch Blog. Here is our special blog hop sketch:



Here is my layout, using a mix of American Crafts products...mostly Polka Dot Party, which you can find in the My Scraps store.

I wanted to play on the pinks in the photo, so I used this gorgeous pink paper for my background.  Next, I went for various patterned papers and embellishments.  I wanted a fun mix of things.  I love the stitched pockets...they're perfect for holding a tag or two :)



I love the little embellishments in this line...cute little arrows and epoxy stickers!  I also added some floss...it's my newest obsession for whatever reason :)

Lots of fun layers and a little bit of modeling paste to jazz up my background...



I also love mixing and matching my alphas in my titles.  My Cameo helps make this so easy!



Now hop along to each of the design team member's blogs to see how they are Ringing in the New year with this fabulous sketch. Make sure to leave a comment on each blog and then see what you can create with the sketch. Link it back here by Thursday, January 9 at midnight EST to be eligible for this fabulous prize.




Now you actually will have two chances to win. If you complete the sketch by the blog deadline you are eligible for the blog prize, but you also have the entire month with several more sketches to come to be eligible for the monthly sketch prize.

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way.
