25 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

For the 25 days of Christmas blog hop we will be posting a Christmas themed challenge everyday from December 1st to December 25th. Challenges will range from things such as create a Christmas card, make a homemade gift, stocking stuffers, ornaments, favorite recipe, etc. Throughout the challenges we here at Scrappykins will be doing random prize drawings for people who participate in the challenge that day as well as a grand prize drawing to be announced in the next few days. For every challenge you complete, you get an entry into the grand prize drawing. So, if you complete all 25 challenges your name will be entered into the grand prize drawing 25 times.

Stay tuned for more details to be posted!

Memories Scrapbooking Expo 2013 - Meeting Tim Holtz

This Friday I made the annual pilgrimage down to Columbus Ohio with some of my best scrapbooking friends to attend the Memories Scrapbooking Expo. We go every year and always enjoy seeing what goodies everyone has for sale. This year was especially exciting because several days prior to leaving for the Expo we heard Tim Holtz was going to be there. He has been our inspiration for a while now and we own a lot of his products. When we got to the Stampers Anonymous booth Tim was already in the middle of a demo so we decided to stand and listen in. We learned so much from his demos and walked away truly inspired! 

A year or so ago I became very into SMASH books, I love how relaxing it is! This January I started a SMASH book that I am calling "My Goals of 2013". Each page has a goal I have set for myself for 2013. One of my goals this year was to meet Tim Holtz so after the expo I couldn't wait to get home and start working on the page.

I pulled a lot of great goodies out of my bag to use on this layout, such as the ticket that Tim signed for me, his signature that I cut out of the product that I bought at the expo, the post card from the Stampers Anonymous booth, and the metal paper from Tim's demo.
