Welcome Blog Hoppers!!!


 Welcome to the Get Picky 1st Birthday Blog Hop! 

We are celebrating our first year with a very exciting reveal as we unveil our 13th Sketch with you today and share the beautiful creations of both present and past designers from our first year!  Some of the team members will be offering prizes so you will want to visit all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning a prize.  We are also offering a major prize along with the chance at a Guest Designer spot for the month of November if you visit and leave a comment at all of the blogs in our blog hop and participate in Sketch Challenge #13.  The Blog Hop starts today and will remain open until midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on October 28th so this will give you all plenty of time to visit everyone’s blogs and create a layout for the sketch challenge.

Here is Sketch #13:


And here is my layout


I have mirrored imaged the layout but the rest has pretty much been left the same. I may have also focused in on the circle detail too! LOL!!

products used: cs - American Crafts; pp - Jillibean Soup, Echo Park, My Little Shoebox; alpha - Jillibean Soup (newsprint); other - Jillibean Soup: stickers, journaling sprouts, die cuts; ink:Tim Holtz distress inks, versacolor; Green Tara: twine; staples; machine stitching; foam tape; black pen (sharpie); dymo label maker; rabbit embellishment (unknown).

Here are some details...



 As we mentioned, there are lots of great birthday pressies up for grabs along our hop today.  Some of our designers will be offering a RAK of their own and of course there is the chance to become our Guest Designer for November....but what's a celebration without that very special gift.


 We are so very excited to also announce that Imaginisce have been kind enough to sponsor us with an awesome prize for our very special birthday celebration.
 
Get Picky is the first stop of our birthday journey where you will find the complete list of all blogs in case there is a glitch along the way.  If you would like to play, just follow along the blog path in order so you don’t miss anyone.

Remember, if you want to be considered for the Guest Designer spot in November, once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded your entry for Sketch Challenge #13, please make sure that you go back to the Get Picky Blog and leave a comment on the challenge post.

The blog hop begins here: Get Picky Blog
 
Your next stop is here:  Mette Kallander!

Thank you so much for joining us for this very special birthday celebration and for your continued support!

PS - I love celebrating birthdays and so, just to show how much I appreciate your lovely comments I want to give one of you a gift!!

Please leave a comment on this post and I'll draw a random name to receive a little RAK out of my stash. Happy hopping fellow bloggers.

Thanks for visiting...x
