Happy Thursday and Welcome to the True XoXo Blog Hop! If you have been following the hop, you should have been directed here from Kimmy Jaster's blog. If you are just stopping by for a visit and want to join the Blog Hop, just hop on over to the True XoXo Blog and start at the beginning. Then follow the links on each lady's blog, through to the end.
Now, if you do decide to Blog Hob with us, there are a couple fun prizes up for grabs. The BIG prize (this one will go to one lucky winner who visits each blog AND leaves a comment) is the True XoXo Guest Design Team spot for December! This means that the winner will have access to the True XoXo facebook page and will get to play along with us for the entire month of December! Also, I am offering up a little prize of my own. One lucky winner will win a $10 gift certificate to A Cherry on Top! In order to be eligible for this prize, you just have to leave a comment for me :)
Now, for this Blog Hop, each of the True XoXo Scrap Chicks was to challenge one of the other ladies on the team. For my challenge, Ms. Kimmy challenged me to create a layout using products for ONLY three manufactures. So, I grabbed the current Birds of a Feather Kit and went to town! I used products from Jilliebean Soup, Crate Paper and Imaginisce. I then grabbed some random pictures of our new puppy, Mr. Toby....and went to town!
Here is my finished layout. I loved layering all of the different papers and patterns in this kit, and the Crate chipboard pieces were so fun to layer and use. Add lots and lots of ink to the mix and the layout was complete!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for participating in the True XoXo Blog Hop. To continue the Hop, just head on over to Maria Otake's blog, our September Guest Design Team member. Remember, if you finish up the Hop...that is, you visit each True XoXo Scrap Chick's blog and leave a message (along with the XoXo blog) you will be entered for a chance at the December Guest Design Team member spot. And...to add a little spice to the Hop, for any layout/project that you complete that is based on a team member's challenge or layout, we will throw your name in the hat for an additional chance at being our December Guest Designer. Be sure that your project/layout is linked the the Blog Hop post over at the True XoXo blog, under the Blog Hop post.
Off you go, to Ms. Maria's blog. Before you leave, if you like, I'd love to have you add yourself as a follower to my blog. Have a great day and I hope you enjoy the rest of the XoXo Blog Hop!
