Welcome to the Blog Hop!!!! And An Amazing RAK!!

Good morning everyone!! And welcome to the Triple the Sketch first anniversary blog hop!! WooHoo! Get ready to have some fun....get inspired and maybe win some cool RAKS!!!

First off you should be joining me from the Triple the Sketch blog. This is the starting point for our adventure. So please jump over there and then continue on so you don't miss anything!!

I am so excited to be the first stop on your journey so let's move on to what I am sharing. I did two layouts....a digi and a paper.

This first layout takes us back to the very first sketch posted on Triple the Sketch! Here is a link to that post sketch 1. I used part of the February kit from The Daily Digi made by the-lily pad designs....it's called hop skip and jump and is perfect for this fun photo of my oldest girls.



This next layout is from sketch 25 I used a beautiful kit from scarlet lime to make this paper 12x12 page of my girls in their dance costumes....the tag on top is hidden journaling.



Now for the fun part....my kids came up with a great idea for a fun little game we can play so one of you can win a wonderful basket of scrappin goodies that I am giving away as my RAK.....now look closely at the jar below and try to guess how many buttons are in the little jar....don't count the ones on the table. The first person that guesses the right amount..or the closest amount will win the RAK! Buttons of all sizes are in that little jar! I was going to post a pic of my basket of scappin goodies but the kids thought it would be fun to keep it a mystery.... so to play along leave me a comment with your guess before Sunday night at 8:00pm eastern time. At that time we will figure out the winner and post it then!!

So there you have it.....I hope you enjoyed your visit to my little blog and now I send you on your way to your next stop!! The talented.....Chelsea! I am sure all the other ladies have amazing things for you to feast your eyes on!!

And a parting verse to cling to in these uncertain times....

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
