Here's a layout I did for the HOT POTATO challenge.

Journalling reads: Christmas eve 2010. When I showed this photo to my little six year old friend, Hannah, she asked me with wonder in her little voice, "Did Santa take that picture?" What else could I answer but, "Yes, he did!"

For doing this particular challenge, I won the following blinkie

All month long, Scrap~tures has been celebrating its first birthday with challenges and inspiration daily. I had a birthday card to make this month so chose the challenge from Day 3 found here
If the young lady for whom the card is intended, was at my house for her birthday, I'd probably make her a delectible chocolate cake. Here is our family's favourite recipe!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

½ cup oatmeal
1 cup boiling water
½ cup margarine
4 TB cocoa

1½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

Mix first set of ingredients and let sit a few min. Add rest of ingredients. Mix and pour into 8x8 pan. Bake at 350ยบ for 35 min.

This Scrap~tures blog hop will run from today, January  21st  through January 23. We will be
drawing for winner February 1st, along with all the other draws.

If you sign up as a follower and make a comment on my blog between now and then I'll do a separate draw for a wee little prize from moi. Happy Scrapping everyone. Thanks for visiting!

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is

Happy Birthday Scrap~tures!

Welcome to a brand new year! Kiss

January 2011 is a special month here at Scrap~tures – we’re one year old!   Party Thanks to your support and participation  yourock we’ve had a great first year and want to show our gratitude by celebrating all month long with games, prizes, a blog hop, AVATAR challenges and lots of inspiration and fun!!   whoo

We have been working hard behind the scenes to provide inspirational challenges, based on “traditional” anniversary gift lists, that will run all month long. For every challenge that you complete (and post in the particular challenge thread AND note in your “birthday book” (master challenge list thread) you can count a candle! Yes, that’s right, for every challenge you complete, you can take the little candle blinkie to put in your siggie line! How fun (and cute) is that?   Smiley (and that's the answer to "why all the candles?"  heehee

AND!! Party if that isn’t enough, we’re going to have an ANNIVERSARY CROP the weekend of January 21, 22 and 23 so mark your calendars and invite your friends!  The crop challenges will start with an early bird challenge (you’ll love it, I guarantee it ;-) ) on Friday at noon and go all weekend long.  whoo

The crop will give you many opportunities to gather more candles for your birthday book. Not to worry though, at the end of the month, we’ll give you some time to “catch your breath” and catch up with more candles if you want!!  Cool

 What?Why all the candles???   Because, February 1, we will announce our Anniversary  Prize Winners! Yes plural!! There will be a grand prize and two runner-up prizes. Denise will be announcing how you can be eligible for the prizes so stay tuned and in the meantime, collect those candles! Yahoo

Come to the party and be ready to meet some “old” friends of ours who are celebrating with us this month and some of you will be surprised I'm sure by "who" you see....   Azn

Questions? Fire away or get out your adhesive and be ready to play the winter blahs away!! Let’s get going! Your first inspirational challenge  is already posted in the team member forum! Go for it and let’s see what you’ve got.  High Five

Your first January AVATAR challenge is to change up from Christmas to fireworks and other celebratory images! Let's see you get your PARTY ON!! :-)

NOTE: We realize that we’ve used the words ANNIVERSARY and BIRTHDAY inter-changeably in this letter, but just know that whatever you call it, it’s all going to be FUN!  Yahoo
P.S.  the party has already started!
