Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! I'm so glad that you've been playing along with us in our very first Blog Hop! Hope you've been having a great time so far! Before visiting me, here at Skraptacular Designs, you should have already been to Paula, Nikki, and Line and seen all their fabulous creations, read about what they do during the summer AND left them some love by posting a comment on one of their blog entries. If you missed any of them...please go back and do so! You won't want to miss out on your chance at winning the Grand Prize once you've made it through our Hop!

During the summer, I absolutely love to spend every free chance I get hanging out with my family and friends! I enjoy inviting people over to our house for barbecues, WII tournaments, playing cards or just relaxing with a movie (even though I always end up falling asleep before it's over). When we aren't having loved ones over, you'll find me up in my office doing what I love to do...wasting time on the internet or stamping and creating projects to post on my blog. Included with this post are a couple of my summery creations that I've made. ENJOY!

Here is a little something extra...complete one of the challenges offered below and you'll be entered to win this fabulous prize: Create two of the challenges, you'll be entered twice. Create ALL three of the challenges and you'll be entered FOUR times to win this fabulous prize up for grabs...

FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps by Elisabeth Bell

1. Create a project using the following ingredients:

3 brads, eyelets or buttons
3 different pattern papers
glitter or some other sort of bling
2 stamped images

2. Create last week's Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: "Oh, for the Love of Chocolate!": You are free to create whatever you wish as long as you use some sort of stamping and include chocolate somewhere!

3. Create a card or project using this sketch:

You can NOT combine the above challenges! In order to be entered into the drawing more than once you MUST complete separate projects!

You will have until midnight May 31st, 2009 to complete your BONUS CHALLENGE project(s) in order to be entered into the drawing! Once you have completed your project(s) PLEASE leave a comment here AND send photos of your projects to me at Be sure to put BONUS CHALLENGE in the subject heading of your post to ensure I don't miss your entry.
Now that we've had a bit of time to chat and bond, it's time for you to move on and visit DONNA

Enjoy the rest of the Hop!

Hey Priscilla,

WII tournaments sounds like fun! We have a WII too, and we'll be moving close to my future sister-in-law, so maybe we'll be hosting some tournaments too :) I've never done real golf, but WII-golf is hilarious :D I don't like to make plans for the summer, it's time to be just laid back and enjoy the sun ^_^

Happy summer!
