If you just happened to hop on over here and didn't know about this blog hop, then hop on over to the Scrapdango Blog where you should start this hopping good time. Okay, enough with all the hopping. Let's get down to scrappiness.

We have a brand new DT over at Scrapdango, and this blog hop is a way to introduce them. You will learn a little about each of them, and they will each post a challenge. You have until next Friday the 20th at midnight EST to post comments on each blog and to complete the DT challenges. There will also be other ways to earn draws, and one lucky person is going to win a fantastic prize of one of Scrapdango's fabulous kits chock full of scrappy goodness. Here is the breakdown of how you can earn draws.

--1 draw by posting comments on each DT member's blog (must comment on all blogs to get the draw)
--1 draw for each challenge that you complete. Please provide a link to your challenge in a comment.
--1 draw for becoming or already being a Scrapdango Blog follower
--1 draw for becoming or already being a fan of Scrapdango on Facebook (include link to SD FB page)
--2 draws for correctly answering quiz questions on the DT members. The quiz can be found on the Scrapdango forum at http://www.scrapdango.com/forums/sho...705#post154705

So for all you new people who have hopped by my pad and even for those that know me.... I'll introduce myself and give you a little info about me!

My name is Laura, and I am so happy to be the DT coordinator at Scrapdango! I love being on the team with the amazing women there! I am happily married to a fabulous man, Jon for the past 11 1/2 years and together we have to amazing little boys Cody and Tyler! Our boys are 13 months apart! I am also blessed with an 18 year old stepson, so I tease my hubby that he is old because he has an adult son and I don't! In actuality I am 3 years older than him! I turn 40 in a few months but don't remember getting old...I guess that is a sign of getting old! I am scared to death of rodents! You know those cartoons where the woman stand on a chair with a broom and screams when she sees a mouse? Yup that is me! lets see...what else....I volunteer at my boys school....I love to bake and cook (hence the need for a diet)....I have a doberman named Rebel who is a big SUCK!

Here is my challenge
I love to distress my papers, I love to use kraft cardstock, I love to make my own flowers, I love to use browns, I love to layer, one of my new favorite companies is Glitz, I love lace and I love to use different fonts in my title!

So my challenge for you is to use your favorite color(s), favorite company(ies) favorite technique(s) and favorite product(s) in a layout!

Can't wait to see what you create!

Here is my example






and from my blog you need to hop on over to Celeste's pad!

Don't forget to leave comments at everyone's blogs!

have a scrappy wonderful day!

I'm afraid of rodents as well, and have had the standing on a chair broom experience! Actualy I jumped on the chair and dropped the broom on my husband who was on the floor trying to not hurt the rodent to put it outside! What was he thinking! LOL
