Scrapgal Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Scrapgal Blog Hop for April! Our manufacturer of the month is American Crafts and our theme is "Feeling Crafty"! :)We wanted to share with you our challenges for the month of April!

And just for leaving a comment on my blog today, you will be put into a drawing to win this American Crafts RAK which includes two sets of alphabet rub-on's, one Remarks alphabet sticker in white and five packages of Thickers.

I did four projects for the month of April. And since our theme is "Feeling Crafty", I decided to do a mini album on why I Love to Scrap!

It is also the technique challenge for the month. Use your ink pads for something besides stamps. I used a Maya Roads chipboard mini album and the entire cover is colored using my Color Box pigment brush pad in Glacier Ice. I also used the ink pad to ink the edges of each chipboard page after I had covered it with white paper on one side and American Crafts patterned paper on the back. The gem stone borders on the front are by Glitz. 
You can find all the challenges for the month of April on the message boards here
Just look in the monthly contest forum! And if you participate in the challenges and link your project on the challenge threads, you will be eligible for a Scrapgal gift card at the end of the month!

Each page contains one reason why I love to scrap using American Crafts label stickers and mini alphas by My Little Shoebox and Cosmo Cricket.

Then on the back of each page I went into more detail about each reason :)

Yes, one of the reasons I put down was scrap supplies. And if you are a die hard scrapper like me, you will totally understand why I chose that :)

I kept it pretty simple since the album isn't very big.

Scrapbooking has been such a fun and relaxing hobby for me that I can't imagine not being able to do it!

Thanks for coming by the blog today! In addition to a chance at winning my personal blog prize, if you visit the other girls blogs for a chance at more RAKS and finally the Scrapgal blog to leave a comment, you will be entered to win the prize pack you see above! You have until midnight April 3rd to finish the blog hop,
