Lets Get Sketchy Birthday blog hop!

Hello and welcome!

Let’s Get Sketchy is turning ONE and to celebrate we are having a Birthday Bash Blog hop.  As you make your way along our hop to visit each of our DT blogs you will find lots of birthday inspired projects.   If you have arrived here from Melinda's blog, welcome to the LGS blog hop!! If you have stumbled across this by chance and want to play along then you can head back to the Let's Get Sketchy site to start at the beginning and to start collecting your Birthday challenge words. These words should be bolded on each DT member’s pages.

Can you believe Lets Get Sketchy is a year old??  I know I cant!  Wow!  To celebrate this first birthday I've created a simple and cute picture frame to go along with the birthday theme! 




I just love the advice it gives!  "Start Each Day Like It's Your BIRTHDAY"  Think about it... wouldn't everyday be such a great day if we all did this?




The banner is made of chipboard that I cut into triangle shapes and painted, connecting the pieces with bakers twine.  I created the confetti by dipping a q-tip into the colored paint and randomly dabbing the paper to make it look as though confetti is falling.  I do like how the look turned out.




The title is sticker letters.  However, I had to paint the BIRTHDAY letters to pull together the matching confetti colors.  I added washi tape to the edges of the frame for more color and a felt butterfly to top it off!  Thats it!  Cute and simple!  Oh, btw, the frame is only a $1.99 at IKEA.  Great deal!


Dont forget that Lets Get Sketchy is also having a Birthday Bash Challenge.  Which is to create any birthday inspired project from examples you see on the DT pages.  If the designers project is a layout then do a lift of that page, if it’s a project of sorts then do that project.  You can pick from ANY DT member’s blog project for the hop.  Upload your finished product to the proper link at Lets Get Sketchy.  All entries are due by midnight, March 8th, 2013. CST.


Also, as you hop along the way you will find bolded clue words on each of the Design Team member’s blogs.  Once you have gathered all the words they will form a quote related to our Birthday. Tell us that quote by 'Emailing Us' at Lets Get Sketchy to get your name in the pot for an extra drawing.  A winner will be randomly selected and will win a nice bag of scrap goodies from Lets Get Sketchy.  As always there are rules for playing!  And the rules are:

1. You MUST be a follower of each LGS team members blog and leave a comment on each blog
2. You MUST also be a follower of the LGS blog.
Please make sure you visit the entire team, as some members are hosting additional blog challenges during the hop and offering their own extra goodies, so the more you play the more chances you have to win!

As an extra incentive for my blog I am giving away a RAK as well!!  A mixture of winter goodies!  Which includes ~ white puffy stickers by Me & My Big Ideas, metal tag lines by Karen Foster, ten 3x5 stencils by P inc., metallic gelatos colors by Faber Castell, winter title rubon by My Minds Eye and 12 pack printed flowers with brads by Heidi Grace.




For a chance to win these goodies, all you have to do is become a follower of my blog.  Thats it!  One lucky follower will be randomly chosen at the end of this hop so please be sure to check back on Monday, March 4 to see if you have won!  Good luck!  Dont forget to leave a comment as well, for more chances to win at Lets Get Sketchy!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now its time for you to hop over to Sherri's blog to see what she has in store for you!  Here is the lineup in case you get lost along the way!
