August Sketch Blog Hop

Hello!  And welcome to Adele’s stop along the August Sketch Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Toree’s Blog.  Doesn’t sound familiar?  Well, pop on over to Amanda’s Blog for the start.  There’re some fun things happening along the way, so come join!

First, here’s the sketch:

Today’s lesson, children, is … Blog Hop + Being Out of Town + Moving = Crack of Dawn Posting.  I had been thinking about the Blog Hop for ages, but hadn’t gotten around to doing anything about it because I was out of town.  Or packed up.  Or flying, so didn’t have my digi goodies.  Or…. you know how it is.  Fortunately, my computer had got unpacked and set up on Wednesday.  So last night I sat down and finally made the template for Amanda’s Sketch.  And then I managed to use the template, and create my own LO for the Hop.  Of course, because I’m moving, I don’t yet have internet at my house.  So at the crack of dawn I dragged myself out of bed and over to my sister’s house so I could get the post written and up on the Blog.

My appologies to Amanda for being an empty headed layabout and not having this done earlier.

But, I did it!  Here you go.  My contribution to the Blog Hop:

The Papers/Embellies I used were from One Little Bird’s Paradise Found, which I bought over at Designer Digitals.  The font is 1553, from  The Template I made (it’s a PSD file) can be found here.

As you can see, I followed Amanda’s sketch fairly closely.  But, I did a bunch of changes, as well.  No stitching, for example, on mine.  Which is funny, because I love stitching.  

But, let’s be honest… you came here for a prize!  Fair enough.  There are 3 ways to get a chance at a prize (Must be done by 9pm Pacific, Monday 21 August):

    1. Leave a comment on my Blog!
    2. Become a Follower of my Blog (there’s a button up at the top of the screen to let you do that, or an email subscription in the sidebar).  Be sure to leave me another note letting me know if you already are, or have just become, a follower.
    3. Use my Template, share it online, and come back here to post your link.

       Don’t forget, if you want to be entered into Amanda’s drawing, you’ll have to add your link to her site, separately!

      Plus, there’s an additional prize!  (This one never closes.)  My mother has written a book!  And it’s a brilliant book.  But, in order to get the 2nd book published, she needs enough sales of the 1st book.  So, an extra special, guarenteed prize, for anyone who orders her book off Amazon.  Just use the form below to send me an email with your order number from Amazon, and I’ll send you a special prize!  And, if you want an autographed bookplate (that I designed!) to put in the cover, let me know what name(s) to make it out to, and add your postal address.

      Ok…. onto the Next Stop: Shanon!
