Get Picky Blog Hop + Giveaways!!!

Friday, October 14, 2011



Welcome to the Get Picky 1st Birthday Blog Hop and my first official assignment as October's Guest Designer!

For those of you who aren't aware of 'Get Picky' is a wonderfully inspirational blog dedicated to challenges for multiple photograph layouts and is the brain child of two very talented and adorable women... Nikki Antonella and Tanya Tahir.



Today Get Picky are celebrating their very first birthday with their 13th sketch challenge reveal and samples created by present and past designers and I'm delighted to be included in the mix being the guest designer for October.

Now today's blog hop is jam packed full of prizes including the major prize sponsored by Imaginisce in conjunction with a chance at being Get Picky's Guest Designer for the month of November by simply visiting and leaving a comment at every blog in the hop and participating in the sketch challenge #13.



There will also be extras prizes as some team members will be offering prizes along the way so you will want to visit all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning.

Here is the sketch challenge for the month of October!

And here's my take on this super cute little sketch!






The Blog Hop

The blog hop starts today and will remain open until midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on October 28th so this will give you all plenty of time to visit everyone's blog and create a layout for the sketch challenge.
Get Picky is the first stop along the journey where you will find the complete list of all blogs in case you get lost along the way. If you would like to play then simply follow along the blog path in order so you don't miss anyone.

Remember, if you want to be considered for the Guest Designer spot in November, once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded your entry for the Sketch Challenge #13, please make sure that you go back to the Get Picky Blog and leave a final comment on the challenge post.

Your next stop along the journey is:
Christine Rumley


My Extra Prize
Before you head off to Anna's beautiful blog, I would like to offer a little prize pack (picture to come) of the gorgeous Doodlebug products similar to what I used on my layout today. All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower to be in the running. I will keep the give-away open the end of October and announce the winner in conjunction with Get Picky's winner announcement!

Good luck, happy hopping, and thanks for stopping by!

From farm to you...

  10. Melinda this is a masterpiece. I think the thing that blows my mind is how you used handmade elements to embellishments. No company diecuts or anything. I am floored bye the sun and those buttons. The cleverness behind this beauty really is outstanding and a delight to see. Inspiration just falls from your fingertips! Love the colours and your take on this sketch. Just had to become a follower with all that is happening here. THanks for the chance to win.
