All About Me Sweet Spring Blog Hop!

Blog Hop Officially begins Wednesday April 7th Midnight PST.

Welcome to All About Me Sweet Spring Blog Hop!
April 7th-April 20th
Winner will be drawn April 21st

If you arrived in my blog first, I want to go ahead and send you to AAM's Blog since this is the starting point of the Hop. I want to make sure you start off right and wouldn't want you to miss out on anything. From there you will follow the link to the next DT's Blog and so on. Continuing until you reach the last DT blog or until you feel like it!

Remember you have to leave a comment on all the DT's Blogs and join in on the challenge in order to have a chance on winning the Sponsors Prize Giveaway. But wait! Some of the DT's are also having some giveaway, so make sure you check them all out! Speaking of Sponsor do we have a great one for you this month! Treasury of Memories has generously donated their April (Glimpse of Spring) collection Kit! This Kit includes a TON of Dear Lizzy from American Crafts goodies. Hello! Can you say YUM! Here's a sneak below. What do you think! Make sure to check them out! They are not only an online store but they carry scrapbook Kits, custom vinyl, canvas and custom invitation store!

Ok, should we get to the Challenge? Are you ready? Ok!

Self Improvement (Your Biggest Flaw)

I know this was hard for me too! I had to really sit and think and figure out how I was gonna approach this without being so OUT THERE! I mean, its not easy to admit your flaws....to top it off you have to share it to the world. But that is exactly the reason why I wanted to joined this Design Team. I wanted to be challenged and do pages that are about me and that I wont normally do on my own! Ya know! I dug dip and dove head first. Confronting my BIGGEST FLAW of them all. The mother load....the gorilla in the room! It was hard to pick from all my flaws but this one stood out from the rest! Here is my take on the challenge.



Supplies: Creative Imaginations PP, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, white cardstock, Core dinations Black cardstock, vellum and American Crafts black thickers.
I hope you decide to play along with us and do this challenge. I know that you will be glad to have a page in your album that's just yours. I know this is not easy but I know you can do it!
Before you go...make sure to leave a comment on my blog kay!
Now go check out Rani and her fabulous take on this challenge and to continue playing along with our Blog Hop. Have fun and good luck!
EDITED:
I forgot to mention that I will be giving away a RACK at the end of this challenge. *How does some NEW My Little Shoebox goodies sound to you?* So you not only get a chane to win the sponsors prize package.....but you also get a chance to win my RACK. Make sure to add a link to your comment showing your take on this challenge. And dont worry for those that commented before I posted this, I will check your blogs to double check if you did the challenge and I will make sure to add your name to the hat before drawing a winner. ;) No worries girlies I got your back. hehehehe!

Wow! Your LO is beautiful. I still have to get started on mine. I'm having difficulties picking just one flaw. . .I could make a whole mini-album! -LOL!!! : )

Michelle said...

Hey my friend! I couldn't read all of your journaling but wanted to leave you a quick note to tell you that I think you are truly a beautiful person. I know that you need to feel that you are too, but I think that you know (at least a little) how very special that you are. Just remember that you have a hubby and children that think you are AMAZINGLY gorgeous (and a friend like me that thinks you are too)! I love you and miss you!

MWAH!
Michelle
