Home and Scrapped February = Love Blog Hop

Welcome to the very first http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/ Blog hop. This is your next hop from Libby's Blog. Our CC started off last night with a wonderful SBS challenge from Heather. There's fantastic challenges from the DT up in the forum and  tonight we will have a game of Bingo in the chat room which is sure to prove fun! So if you are not already a member of Home and Scrapped be sure to join so you can join in on the  fun and participate in all the challenges, games and Blog Hop.

As our February CC is based on "Love and Summertime" I share with you this little quote.

I am Liz and have been a member of Home and Scrapped since Heather started this wonderful community.

Here are four little things about me you may not know:
1. My favourite colour is pink
2. I love Italian food
3. I love the Summer heat
4. It usually takes me a week to complete a layout because I want the page to be perfect! (And I am a procrastinator)

I have a small RAK to give away.............. But there is a catch!! To be in the draw I would like you to include a butterfly on one of your CC challenge layouts. You will need to post a comment in the challenge thread in the forum to tell me which layout your butterfly is on and your name will be put in the draw for the chance to win a handmade crochet flower pack.

THE lovely Heather also has a RAK prize of a special handmade extra large flower pack made by Heather at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ElsieandGrace for one lucky member who completes all the set tasks from the Blog Hop.

February Challenges at Home&Scrapped

Here is my take on Kerri's challenge at http://homeandscrapped.ning.com/ the criteria was to use washi tape on your page.

And here is my layout from Melissa's Challenge. Melissa's challenge was to use at least three of these colours.
I used yellow, light green and dark green on my page.

Hope you like it! Thanks for looking :)

First Post in 2013!

Firstly Happy New Year!! Yes I know I am a little late. Well a month late actually! I can't believe the first month of the year has gone already.
I am really excited about this year as my twins start full time school. I will miss them not being here all day, but I am also looking forward to more scrapbooking, card making and doing all the things I can not do when the boys are at home.
I have been chosen to be apart of the Home&Scrapped DT. I am so excited! In the morning I will set my first challenge on the site so click on the link and check it out!
