Oh Hoppy Day!

Welcome to the Let's Scrap Leap Around the World (card making) Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Michelle Looi’s blog, then you are at the right place. There are 50 blogs participating in this hop and a whole month to play along, so do not feel overwhelmed. I am actually stop #39 on the list. If you would like start from the begining, then just go HERE.
 
Ready to begin? Here is the Let's Scrap sketch that I am showcasing. So simple, yet so many possibilities:
I made a few different examples, starting with this one. Here I flipped the sketch upside down and used lots of pretty girlie colors:
Here is a colorful Spring-y version:
Here is a neutral-monochromatic version:
and...what about the guys? Here is a version made just for them by flipping the sketch sideways:
This is a fun tag that I made with the sketch for my sons upcoming Birthday:
See how versital this sketch is! I flipped it all kinds of ways and used it for all kinds of cards!
Now for the best part. Want to know what you are playing for?  Some very cool papers from Simple Stories called Year-O-Graphy, some assorted bakers twine, some bling, some pretty (matching) glittery cardstock and some black foam thickers letters. I know I will add more to the RAK by month end. I love to give away scrappy prizes!
