SCRAPSTREET.COM MAGAZINE'S BLOG HOP AND NIKKI SIVILS GIVEAWAY

Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone!!!!! I'm sooo excited as it is my first time to actually celebrate this occasion - - and really thrilled as this is a triple fun post. Why? For three reasons:

1) Scrapstreet.com Magazine is having a blog hop and this is one of the "pit stops"!!!!!!! If you are already blog hopping with us, you probably got to my blog from Janneke, but if not and you want to play along and win prizes, head on to the Scrapstreet's blog to start!!!

I have two projects to share - - and both of them use Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker's yumminess!!!!!

The first one uses Henry's Brilliance papers (I flipped Heather Robertson's winning sketch here!!!).

Some details for you:

These owls are a hoot!!!!!!!!!

I love how Nikki Sivils' Burlap Buttons automatically give additional texture on my page!!!

Love the Cord Brads too!!!! Love them so much I also used them on my second layout below!!!!


Here's my second layout: this one uses Ellie's Day Out papers!!!!

Just some close-up shots:

It's all in the bag(s)!!!!!!!!
Stitching with crochet thread - - I love this Effervescence Border Punch by Fiskars!!!!


These are actually recyled paper towels which I misted and layered and held together with the Cord Brads.


2) This is the second fun part: Visit Nikki Sivils blog, choose your favorite collection and get a chance to win it by telling me in the Comments Section which you would love to win!!!! If you're the winner, wait for your package to be mailed out by Nikki Sivils herself!!!!

3) Still want to increase your chances of winning? I'm doing a challenge: use at least 3 BRADS in your layouts!!!!! Easy peasy right? Link your creations in the Scrapstreet Gallery (make sure you name it LAYOUT: BRADS CHALLENGE) so I can count you in!!!! Scrapstreet.com Magazine will be the one sponsoring this challenge so I hope you'll play along!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do visit too the other challenges in our forum HERE - - lots and lots of chances to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have until May 4 to leave comments for the Nikki Sivils give-away and to play along my Scrapstreet.com's BRADS CHALLENGE. I'll be doing a random drawing and will be announcing the winners on May 5!!!!

I won't hold you for long. Off you go to your next pit stop - - Pam!!!!!
