Blog hop! May 7 - May 21

**This post will be pinned to the top until the Blog Hop prizes are announced on May 21st. Please scroll down for new posts!**
You are at Blog Hop #8 on the Let's Scrap Blog Hop!!

National Scrapbooking Day was last weekend, right? Well not at Let's Scrap. We are celebrating our scrapbooking ALL MONTH LONG. We started with some great games and challenges during NSD weekend, and now we are back with the Let's Scrap Design Team Blog Hop. Below you will find a list of those DT's who are joining us in the blog hop. Each stop on the hop will offer you a different challenge. Become a follower of each Design Team Member's blog and as you complete each challenge, upload your finished project to Let's Scrap. Return to each blog and make sure to leave a comment letting us know that you have completed the challenge and uploaded it to Let's Scrap. Make sure you tag your project with the appropriate tag (you will find those instructions on each of our blogs-ie: bloghop1, bloghop2, etc.). Each Design Team member will randomly select a winner of a small prize for participating. For the ULTIMATE challenge, and for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to A Cherry On Top, complete the challenges you will find on EACH stop on the blog hop. Make sure to tag your uploads properly so you are sure to be entered into the random drawing.

Scrapping Nomad's Blog Hop challenge is (surprise!) about nomads. I have selected a list of quotes about travelling, moving and changing, constant elements in a nomad's life. Your Blog Hop challenge # 8 is to use one of these quotes (or part of it -as a quote, journalling, title, whatever works best for you) in a layout based on one of Let's Scrap sketches. I have many travel layouts with quotes, maybe because I feel so many of them describe our nomadic life! This is an old one which I still like a lot (it is probably scraplifted, as it is one of my first layouts and I got lots of ideas from magazines then, but I really don't remember where I got it from).



Once you've finished your layout: 1) upload it to Let's Scrap, tagging it both bloghop8 and the sketch number; and 2) become a follower of Scrapping Nomad and leave a comment here with a link to your layout. Scrapping Nomad's prize, to be drawn among those followers who leave a comment, is this fantastic KI Memories Travel Kit (if you don't win but LOVE this kit, like me, check Crafty Steals, it will be one of their steals soon!).



You can start anywhere along the way within this great group of blogs and each one will link from one site to the next where you will find all the great challenges! And the best part is you have two complete weeks to upload your challenge entries. Even if you don't win the grand prize, if you choose to complete all the challenges available, you will have 10 completed projects! Let's get this hop started!! Remember, to become a follower and return to leave a comment after completing each challenge. Good luck, and have fun!!!! Your next stop is Nana.
