Scrapbook Kits with a Difference (SKWAD) Blog Hop

Scrapbook Kits With A Difference and the Design Team, would like to welcome you to our first ever Recipe Layout Blog Hop. We’d like to share this special event with you, and to celebrate, we are offering three kits from Scrapbook Kits With A Difference, for 3 lucky people.

The blog hop begins at the Scrapbook Kits with A Difference (SKWAD) blog. On the SKWAD blog you will find a complete list of all the designers participating in the blog hop in case there is a glitch along the way. If you would like to play with us, just follow along the blog path. Each SKWAD designer is linking to the next designer, and that designer is linking to the next, and so on. Be prepared to find lots of inspiration along the way. Our 3 lucky winners will be randomly chosen after the hop is over. Woot! Woot!

The Blog Hop starts today, July 15, 2012 and runs through until July 22, 2012 (midnight AUS Eastern Standard Time). The three winners will be announced on the SKWAD blog on Tuesday, July 24, 2012. To be in the draw to win one of the fabulous prizes:

1. Become a follower on our SKWAD blog.

2. Like us on our Facebook Page (link can also be found on the top right side of the blog).

3. Add our SKWAD blinkie to your blog.

4. Leave a comment on each designer’s blog and on the SKWAD blog.

5. If you create and share a layout using our blog hop recipe, you will receive 5 extra tickets in the draw. Please link your layout to the Recipe Blog Hop post on the SKWAD blog.

1 cardstock
2 patterned papers
a wet medium (eg. paint, mist spray, gesso)
a mask
raw chipboard
5 buttons (or brads)

Flowers, ribbons, and bling are all optional. 😀

      Hi, Tina! On the right sidebar, near the top (right under the SKWAD blinkie) there’s a small square badge to follow through Networked Blogs. The blog I use (free wordpress) does not support flash so I can’t have google friend connect. You can also sign up to receive updates via email directly below the Networked Blogs badge. 😀
