Some Fun Info!

I have a couple of things to tell you about today. First, I am cordially inviting you to the very first Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop. It’s tomorrow!!!  We have lots of amazing talent over there and we’d love to show it off a bit! Won’t you please join us? You can start the hop from any point, be it here at my blog, the S&S blog, or any of the other members. We will all have a full hop list posted on our blogs. It’s going to be awesome!!!

 

The next thing I’m excited to share with you is a new Challenge Blog called Friends Having Fun. It was started by my awesome friend Tonya (the mastermind behind Twilight Tuesday). I’m really excited because it’s going to be a great blog. But, I’ll let Tonya fill you in on the deets. Here’s what she wrote:

The Friends Having Fun challenge blog is almost ready to start having fun!

We have four teams and each team will host a weekly challenge.

Let’s meet our team leaders:

Alison – Color Challenge (week 1)

Dani – Sketch Challenge (week 2)

Sarabeth – Recipe Challenge (week 3)

Erica – Pop Culture Challenge (week 4)

Each team is looking for 3-4 friends (design team members) who would like to have fun!

Deets:

  • 3 Month Term

  • Post 1 time a month

  • Can apply for as many teams as you’d like but can only be accepted to 2 max at a time. Please indicate your preference order. At the end of term, you can apply for another team!

  • Bring your fun! We’re looking for topic ideas to post about during the week. For example, home organization, health information, exercise, travel, etc.

  • Entries must be received by Friday, March 12th. Terms start in April.

  • Email 2 of your favorite projects, a little about yourself and your blog address to tonya@stamphappens.com. Prior experience is not necessary.

Anyone who is interested in sponsoring us should contact Margie for information.

 

So, who wants to be on my team??? I just want to say that this is NOT a competition, but I need some friends who want to be on the Color Challenge Design Team!!! Won’t you join me???

All the teams are cooking up some awesome ideas, and I’m sure that everyone will have a blast. I can’t wait for it all to begin! You’ll probably recognize many if not all the Team Leaders. It will be great to work with all of them again!

So make sure you stop back here tomorrow for the Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop, and then get your entries for the Friends Having Fun Challenge over to Tonya! Have a great day!!!
