scrapbook challenges blog hop



yes, you read it right - i am a guest dt for scrapbook challenges this january! i couldn't begin to think of a better way to start the year scrapping-wise than this, a dream come true for me. if this is your first time here, my name is jeanie nieva-de la rama, i work as a technology consultant for a multinational firm here in manila, philippines. i recently "remarried" my husband in a garden wedding ceremony, exactly a year after our civil wedding. as with most wives, my husband is my number 1 fan and supporter - from taking me to crops and scrapbook shopping and providing feedback for my works.
anyway, enough about me. i do hope you can take some time to join us for the blog hop. if you came from cathy's blog, you're on the right track. but if you didn't, no worries, you can start from pamela's blog.
there are several raks up for grabs for this blog hop and here's how you can win one of them.

1. one lucky person who leaves a comment on all of our blogs in the dt/gdt blog hop will win a collection of goodies from my little shoebox:


2. one person who does the sketch and posts in the hop on section will win the origins collection from basic grey:


3. there are two packs from prima marketing, one will go to someone who joins the group this weekend, and the other will go to someone who invites someone to the group this weekend (through the invite link on the group):


4. then one last rak (which will be posted in the hop on section) goes to one person who leaves a comment on the blogs in the hop on section. they will receive an album and a bunch of trim from rusty pickle:



as promised, this is the sketch and my lo for this blog hop.


if you get lost along the way, here's a map of the hop to get you back on track.
