Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop. This is a long post but so WORTH IT!! Read, play and have fun!

This blog hop is design to help you get to know the Scrapbook Challenges Design Team, Pamela the owner of Scrapbook Challenge and the Scrapbook Challenges site better. During the hop you will notice lots of prizes and a challenge(see below), I hope you participate in all of them.

Now, Let me tell you a bit about Scrapbook Challenges and Pamela the founder of Scrapbook Challenges. We have a weekly sketch challenge, with an original, never seen before sketch designed by the amazing Pamela Young, a highly talented and published artist. Pamela start her once little group a few years back. Her little group has grown to over 1700 members.

Every Monday, Pamela posts a new sketch along with DT LO's. We also have a photoshop, a digital and technique challenge posted once a month. Plus, we also have other wonderful challenges that are issue by the design team members. Everyone who completes a challenge gets entered into a drawing for a prize from our monthly sponsor. Pamela does a fantastic job securing amazing sponsors each month!

Five random facts about me:
1. I can't live without music!!!
2. I am my family's Weird Al. I love to change to words to Pop songs to make my own songs.
3. I am a Lego maniac - I really love them and can play with them for hours with or without the kids.
4. I have 2 brothers and 1 Sister
5. I grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey. Same as Frank Sinatra. I just don't have the blue eyes.
Here is Pamela's Wonderful Sketch

Here is my layout based on her sketch.

Oh man, how I wish your group wasn't on MySpace! We've had to outlaw it in our home...too many problems with viruses and spam and such. I know you have a ton of MySpace followers, but maybe you folks would consider moving the group to Blogger one day? Your members would easily be able to follow you there...just a thought! :)
Thanks so much for the blog hop and have a wonderful weekend...following your blog now!
