Life Preserver's Club DT Blog Hop and Reveals!

Happy May Day and National Scrapbooking Day to you! 

Scrapbooking is such a wonderful component to each of our lives. It is something that we all share in common. We all have different styles that make each of us unique. We all have various reasons that we got into scrapbooking. 
  • I got into scrapping so that my children would have a baby book to look back on and never wonder about their milestones.  I never want their quirky sayings to get lost in the whirl of our busy lives. 
For National Scrapbooking Day the design team, hosted by Life Preservers wanted to bring a little extra excitement to the day. We have partnered up amongst ourselves to provide you with challenges. The good thing about Spring is there are so many different reasons to celebrate in addition to National Scrapbook Day.

If you arrived here from Sharon's blog, you are right on track!  Make sure you check out what her part of our challenge is!!!

All you have to do to participate in this blog hop is to visit the Design Teams blogs. Do the challenge posted and link your creation to their comments. You can link this from your gallery on Life Preservers if you would like.
  • There will be links to follow on each of our blogs.
  • Make sure you comment on each DT blog with your creation if so applicable.
  • For each challenge that you do you will be entered into a random drawing for a prize from Life Preservers.
To top this off, today I have 2 posts, a reveal for Cardabilities (see below please!), plus one for ScrapFit and the Life Preservers's right here for the blog hop!  That's a whole lot of scrappity fun!  Let's get started shall we?!!

Sharon and I teamed up to bring you a fun two part card sketch challenge.  A very special thanks to Karan Gerber for allowing us to use the Sketchabilities sketches for our challenge to you!

Part I:  Create a Mother's Day card using a Life Preserver's kit and one of the two sketches below.

Here are the sketches we chose:
Sharon's pick:


















Rhonda's pick:


















Here is what I created with that fabulous sketch 8 for a Mother's Day card using the April Featured Life Preserver's kit:













Part II:  Rhonda challenges you to create one more card for a scrappy friend who you think is a great Mom!  You can use the other sketch if you wish or make your own fabulous creation!

This next button cloud card is also my reveal for ScrapFit today!  The current ScrapFit challenge is to create a project from your stash.  No new anything! 
Thank you so much for participating in Life Preservers first annual NSD Blog Hop!  Please hop on over to Jodi's Blog now for even more fabulous inspiration!
