It's time for a Nook bloghop!...

...and I'm hoping you'll participate!

Here we go:



You should arrive here from Susan Lui's blog. If you didn't - start at the blog of Leah Killian and go from there, to make sure you don't miss out on a clue!

Check out the monthly inspiration from My Scrapbook Nook Kits AND WIN ONE FOR YOURSELF! Our kits are packed with the latest and greatest scrapbooking products, all perfectly coordinated to save you time. These kits are a great value, always only $28 and always with a $15 to 35% discount! This month's kit features brand new Sassafrass Lass Indie Girl, and matching goodies from Jenni Bowlin, Basic Grey and other brands you know and trust!

Our message board and gallery are hopping and loaded with ideas on how to create with your kit, as well as step by step instructions on tons of great layouts and cards!

Now, Here's how you WIN! Hop the Design Team blogs - leave a comment (on the hop-specific post) to win the prize featured on that designer's blog - then collect the words from each blog to answer this question:

What's the scrappy cure for the summertime blues?

My clue for you is: from

When you've collected all the words, piece them all together to form a sentence and then go to our message board and send a personal message (pm) to Leah with your guess.
One person with the correct answer will be drawn at random and win a 3-month subscription to the kit club here at My Scrapbook Nook.

Other prizes include gift certificates to the Nook store, QuicKutz dies and past Nook kits. Winners will be chosen at random from comments left on each design team member's blog so the more blogs you visit, the greater your chance to win a prize. The winners will be announced in the forum after the close of the blog hop.
The blog hop ends on Aug 7 at 11:59pm PST.


The prize that I am giving away to one lucky blog hopper is:
a $50 QK Collection!!

Good luck! And remember:
Don't wait to create!
Join the kit club today and get on your way with our special bonus:
T
hose who sign up for a 1 year membership during the blog hop will receive one of our bonus kits free plus after their year membership. They will also get their 13th kit for free!
Nice
, huh?! :D

The next stop on your hop is the fantastic Stacey Michaud! I'm sure she'll blow you away as she does me on a regular basis...!
Also - don't forget to check out the Nook's current DT-call! Apply today and who knows - you might be among the chosen lucky ones who gets spoiled by Pam & Leah each month...! :D


Also, a reminder: To our international subscribers. Please make sure your card hasn't expired and, if you're in Sweden and use SwedBank, that you have approved the payment for the Nook, to make sure you don't miss out on your lovely kits!

Just to send you off with some (hopefully) scrappy mojo - here's a layout I made with the latest, August kit:



I added alphas from an earlier kit, and papers from a book and a pad, some lace and bling to match the beautiful pins from the kit. Oh, and... The currougated cardboard? Part of the package! :)

(...and the answer is yes, we're totally goofing around on the photo. *grins*)

This post is now CLOSED for comments, since the Blog is over. Thanks to everyone who participated! :D
