Scrapz.Biz Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the the very first blog hop! I'm the first stop along your journey so I just want to wave a giant hello to everyone!!

Can I tell you how excited I am to be joining this Design Team? SUPER-EXCITED! I'm joining some other incredibly talented girls who you'll get to meet along the way. But just in case you don't even know who is then let me fill you in.....

We're an Australian online scrapbooking and craft store stocking all the latest ranges. See something you like? We'll ship it all to you for a flat rate of $5.95. Don't see what you're after? Then ask our friendly boss-lady Heike and she's sure to help you out.

We're also the home of the Ticklez kitz. Every month a new kit is released featuring a bunch of the newest papers and a huge assortment of gorgeous embellishments. And if it's inspiration you're after then look no further than our brimming gallery, or hang out in our friendly forum. We offer plenty of free tutorials for fun new techniques to try, or simply spend the day chatting away to our regulars.

At we love a good challenge, so not only do we have regular competitions but now we're pleased to offer you a new challenge every day of the week (well.... Monday to Friday at least!) Weekly challenges are something that have been around for a while, but we're shaking it up a bit by adding fresh and exciting new concepts and the chance to win even bigger prizes! Starting from October, everyone who enters one of our daily challenges will go into the draw to win a great big voucher (or two) at the end of the month. The more challenges you enter, the more chances you've got of winning. Simple right?

To get you in the mood, here's a little sneak of today's challenge that I've designed.

This is for the "What's Cooking" challenge where I give you a list of 'ingredients' that you need to include on your page. This week's challenge theme is "Driving Force" and for today's challenge the ingredients are:
* something travel themed (interpret that as you like!)
* part of your title or some journaling on a tag
* something fussy-cut (like my clouds in the sneak above)

To find out how to join this challenge and all the daily challenges, follow the link here.

Now onto the details of how you can win just for joining us on our blog hop. All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post as well as the other blogs along the way. You'll also need to leave a comment on our Facebook page. We don't want to tire you out so we'll just be hopping along one stop a day to correspond with this week's daily challenges. Here's the schedule in case you get lost...

Monday 10th Natalie's blog with her "What's Cooking" challenge (you are here!)
Tuesday 11th Sheree's blog and her "Scrap a Rainbow" challenge
Wednesday 12th Aga's blog with her "Fetch a Sketch" challenge
Thursday 13th Shell's blog and her "Scrap Right Now" challenge
Friday 14th Chloe's blog and her "Noteworthy" challenge

So once you've finished the blog hop and left a comment on each stop along the way, make sure you go over and 'Like' us on Facebook and leave a comment there telling us what you thought of the journey. Then you'll automatically be entered into the drawing to win a $20 voucher to the store.

AND..... if you're a follower of my blog (or even if you just became one) please let me know, because I'll enter you into a separate draw to win some very yummy blog candy.

Tomorrow you'll be off to Sheree's blog to see her "Scrap a Rainbow" challenge. Happy hopping! 

The blog hop closes on Monday 17th October so don't forget to come back and check if you're a winner!
