Welcome to Scrapbook Challenges' Thank you so much Pamela Blog Hop.

If you have just started your hop, You might want start at Brynn's blog. If you are coming from Jackie's blog then you are in the right place. :)

I would like to take a moment and tell you about Pamela Young. She is an amazing woman, Mom, designer, artist, creator of Scrapbook Challenges and most of all incredible friend. I am so grateful to have met and worked with/for Pamela. She started Scrapbook Challenges on Myspace and grew it to over 1000 members, She designed all the sketches that the design team used every week to create their layouts.

She later moved the site to Ning, were it grew even more. She and the DT added tutorials, classes, chats, blog hops and other fun things. she continued to work with sponsors to bring Scrapbook Challenges to a higher level. Pamela also continued to work on her own personal scrapping skills and was recognized for it by being published several times. She was also asked to be a part of several design teams for manufactures. She is an inspiration to many -- especially me.

Ok, now about me -- fun I know LOL! Here are some fun facts about me.

I've been scrapping since 1998. I started out so very basic. I was afraid to mess it up. Then, I got over it and started to really scrap. I've been scrapping ever since. I have three super incredible children 2 girls and 1 boy. They are talented in so many ways. My very, very supportive husband and I have been married for 21 years and together for over 22 years. we have 3 super cute dogs and we all live in the very hot, humid, sunny state of Florida!! Although, I grew up in Hoboken, New Jersey. Same as Frank Sinatra. I just don't have the blue eyes. I can't live without music!!! I am my family's Weird Al. I love to change the words to Pop songs to make my own songs. I am a Lego maniac - I really love them and can play with them for hours with or without the kids. I have 2 brothers and 1 Sister (who I got into scrapbook in 2002 and she now has more scrapbook stuff and I do - Ok, let's be honest she has more stuff and a store! LOL)

I found Scrapbook Challenge through Scrapbook Calls. Pamela was in search of a new design team and I applied for it, much to my surprise she picked me. I was honored to be a part of her design team. Pamela, the other Scrapbook Challenge design team members and Scrapbook Challenges community helped me grow in in my scrapping. The challenges inspired, and made me at time go outside my comfort zone which I LOVE. I know that I have learned so much from everyone on the site.

I wanted to share a sketch created Pamela with you. It inspired me to do the layout below.

So, I bet you are wondering --Are there going to be any GOODIES in this blog hop? Well, Of course there are - don't be silly. There are always goodies at Scrapbook Challenges.

Here is what you have to do to be entered into the drawing:

1. The one person who leaves a comment on all the blogs and in HOP ON section(this can be found on the Scrapbook Challenges site)will get Chipboard Borders, 12x12 Collection Kit and a 6x6 Paper Pad from To The Moon by Fancy Pants.

3. One person who post a NEW a layout based on one of Pam’s sketches(these can be found on the Scrapbook Challenges site)and posts it in the HOP ON section will receive a package of Tim Holtz goodies.
