New Layouts and the SF "Get YOur Game On" Hop winner

First off, I wanted to share a couple layouts I have been doing over at Cookin' Up Creations for the "Next Crop Chef" contest.  The first one I did for my 1st week's entry, this was also my entry for our Get Your Game on Touchdown LO (killed two birds with one stone!):

This next layout was for my third week's entry.  It is a LO about how this past Valentine's day was my husband and mine 25th Valentine's day together:

And this next LO I am not 100% happy with, but that's what I get for waiting until the last minute to get my LO done for the challenge due yesterday:

I have also been working on some mini cards to go inside gifts that I will hopefully get packaged up and ready to sell soon.  There are the two sets I have finished already and they come 6 to a set:

These sets are so fun to make, and they go together so quickly.

And now, on to the whole reason you all are reading this post, the winner from the "Get Your Game On" blog hop.  The winner is..........Sherry843.  Sherry, please email me at zbasmom at gmail dot com or send me a private message at SF with your mailing address please.  Congrats Sherry.  And I have to say, I loved seeing every one's Touchdown LOs.

Just a reminder

Hey guys, I just wanted to remind you that although the hop has ended, you still have plenty of time to get your projects for your touchdown completed and posted.  You have until the 12th to get them uploaded in the Scrap-Friendzy gallery and posted in the Get You Game On post on the message board to be eligible for both the hop prize and my personal prize if you use twine and are a follower of my blog.  So don't worry if you were too busy this weekend.  There is still time to win!

Get Your Game On Blog Hop

Welcome to your final blog stop on Scrap-Friendzy's "Get Your Game On" blog hop!! If you landed here from Shannon's Blog then you came in the right way.  If you haven't visited all the other blogs, beginning with Scrap-Frienzy's Blog then make sure you go back there to begin so you don't miss anything along the way. We are so excited about the fun and inspiration our amazing DT will be sharing with you on this hop! The hop runs from now until midnight (CST) February 5th.

But this is not your average Blog Hop! We're gonna throw in a little extra fun with a Touchdown Challenge! At every stop on the hop, you will be given a special "ingredient" from each DT Member. Your Challenge is to take any 6 of the "ingredients" and complete any ONE project of your choice!! If you are feeling confident and think you can make that extra point, use 7 of the ingredients and you will get 2 draws. Simply upload your project in the Gallery and link it back to the "Get Your Game on" blog hop thread in the forum to be eligible for the Grand Prize AND earn 25 bonus Friendz Pointz in the month of February!

Don't forget: This BLOG HOP is just the beginning and there will be challenges all through the month of February for your chance to be our next Girlfriend of the Month!!

So back to the BLOG HOP! Are you ready for the fun???? Before you head to the locker room (your scrap area) to work on your touchdown project, please become a follower of my blog and post a comment letting me know you have made it through all the blog along the hop (SF's and the DT members' personal blogs).

And finally, my layout with my ingredient for you to use for your touchdown project.  I have to say, As much as I love high school and college football, I am not a huge die hard fan of pro football.  My favorite part of pro-ball is the cheerleader.  I love the watch their athletic ability.  And I am really partial to my very own cheerleader that you will see inspired my LO : 

We all know how important the lacing on the football is.  The quarterback like to have it lined up just right when he throws the ball, as does the kicker, want it to be lined up perfectly as well.  So with that in mind, my ingredient is TWINE.
Now, I'm not picky as to what kind of twine you use.  It can be bakers twine, or the natural twine.  Shoot, you can even use homemade twine if that's all you've got.  All I ask is that you point it out to us when you post your LO at SF if it isn't obvious.  On my LO I used both bakers twine and natural twine.  My bakers twine is stapled across the top where the black and aqua paper meet.  My natural twine is covering my buttons in the center of my handmade flowers.  You also don't have to use as much as I did, just a little will do.  The best part, is you have until Sunday February 12th to get your project finished and upload in the appropriate thread at SF!

Now on to the fun stuff...I am offering up a small prize of my own.  For everyone who does use my ingredient on their touchdown project and is a follower of my blog, I will put your name into a random drawing for that small prize. So make sure if you aren't already a follower, that you do that before the deadline to post your touchdown. The winner will be announced on or before the 15th of February.  That will give me time to go through the projects and confirm who all used twine.  Make sure you check back here to see if you are the winner! However, whether you use twine or not I can't wait to see what all you create for your touchdown!

Since I am the final blog on the hop, I won't be providing you with a new blog to visit, but I will give you a direct link to the thread to score your touchdown in: GET YOUR GAME ON TOUCHDOWN PROJECTS
See, we try to make it as easy as possible to get a touchdown here.  No defensive line to get in your way!

Two great "events" I'd like to invite everyone to.

I can not believe we are already into February.  It seems the older I get, the quicker time passes by.  Is there a slow motion button somewhere I can push to make time slow down?

 Anyway, on to the two great events I'd like to invite everyone to.  The first is a blog hop that I will be participating in for Scrap Friendzy. It's this coming weekend and starts Friday night at 6:00 pm. 

It's going to be a lot of fun so make sure you come play!

 The second event is a non elimination contest we have this month at Cookin' Up Creations.  It's called Crop Chef and it's going to be a blast.  Each week you will be given two challenges (on Monday and Thursday) requiring you to use a certain "recipe". 

I hope to see everyone participating in both of these fun-filled events.
