Little Red Scrapbook BLOG HOP



Welcome to Little Red Scrapbook's "Out with the Old, In with the New" Blog Hop!  With the start of the new year we all like to set goals and think of new ways to get organized.  With this in mind our talented Design Team has come up with some fun challenges that may help you get started.


Here's the scoop:

STEP 1:  First you will need to leave a comment on the LRS blog and tell us what goal or organization idea you have for the New Year.  This will not only inspire all of us with your goal or idea, but it will also get your name entered into a random drawing for a chance to win the blue colored inspired “hodgepodge” prize. Pretty easy so far right!    


STEP 2: Second you will need to visit all FIVE blogs and leave a comment on EACH blog.  This is important so we know you have been to all of the blogs.  If you have left a comment on each of the blogs your name will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the orange colored inspired “hodgepodge” prize.  Another easy peasy way to win!


STEP 3: Once you’ve done that, you will need to check out our Facebook page, and LIKE us. This will put your name in another random drawing for a chance to win the green colored inspired “hodgepodge” prize.   


STEP 4: For a chance to win the Love LRS Grand Prize head on over to our message board and say hello, then upload your project and/or layout for any of the design team challenges posted on their blogs to the “2012 Out with the Old, In with the New” gallery. The Blog Hop challenges will run from January 27th until midnight January 30th. You can enter as many times as you like. You do not need to be a subscriber to participate. The more entries, the more chances you have to win!

Then on February 1st, be sure to check out our Facebook page, or visit the LRS community or the LRS blog to see if you are one of the lucky winners!  

Now to the fun part of my post:

One of my favorite things to do when the new year arrives is to choose a Word of the Year.  "A word that would basically encompass my goals and define what I am striving to do or become during the year." This year, the word I've chosen is "Trust".  This word will hold many meanings for me in 2012.  The greatest being "trusting in the Lord with all my heart, mind, soul and strength".  The greatest test of this will be when my son leaves to serve with the U. S. Army Military Police in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan.  It is my hope that in the year 2012, I will grow in my faith and Trust in the Lord rather than lean on my own understanding.  

My Challenge for you is to create a project using your "Word of the Year".
The next stop on the Hop is my dear friend Nikki!!
Good Luck and I hope you have a lot of fun playing along!!

I chose the word Change this year because in the past couple of years I have had so much of it that I can't handle it. So I want to embrace it because Change is always happening...
