Scrap Kitchen {Inter} National Scrapbook Day blog hop

Hello there!  If you're here for the Scrap Kitchen NSD blog hop  this is the right post.  :)  If you're looking for the Ruby Rock-it NSD blog hop,- scroll down - it's the post just below this one.  Either way - so glad you stopped by for a visit - I hope you'll check out both hops!

WOOHOO, Welcome to the Scrap Kitchen NSD blog hop

You have a chance to win one or more of 50 prizes from 50 different blogs! This is the EASIEST BLOG HOP EVER. All you have to do to win a prize is to PLEASE LEAVE a comment under this post. If you have a chance to browse around and like my work, I would love if you became a follower of my blog (not required).  On Sunday May 6th I will choose someone randomly for the prize.

Now of course, it wouldn't be right if I didn't show a project first (Supplies list at the bottom of this post)


This layout is about my 3 year old talking me into letting her use my travel watercolours, so I used a misted background to give the feeling of watery paints.


A play on words for the title, because I do love puns, especially in French.


I had made the background months ago.  It was an experiment that went 'wrong', but I liked the look and kept it for future use.  I'm glad I did!


The grungeboard and chipboard were also customized with mists.


and here is the blog candy I'm offering on my blog.  If I get a lot of comments, I may add a second prize.

The winners details will be posted on here so make sure you check back to see if you have won! For more chances to win, please go to

Gerry van Gent http://gerryscrafts.blogspot.com/

to leave some more blog love. I have posted the complete blog list here just in case anyone forgets to post or has computer issues!  We would also love for you to come and join us in The Scrap Kitchen on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/groups/358068404230630/ and will also be posting winners names there!
