Lets Scrap Leap around the World blog hop

Please note this is a sticky post and will stay here until February 29.  Please scroll down for new posts.
Hello and welcome to beautiful Ballito in South Africa and stop No 12 on your whirlwind 


If you came here from Sherri Priest @ http://www.sherripriest.blogspot.com/
Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ has the hop order to help you find your way. I am so excited to be {a  first- time} blog host for such a fun and huge blog hop! Here is the sketch I am showcasing for the hop


Here is my interpretation of the sketch



I am flower crazy, so for such an important event I had to find a very special flower and I did at MelStampz.  It has 15 layers and I cut it from Tim Holtz distress cardstock.  The paper lace is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The butterfly is also a MS Punch.

Now for the fun part! 
Here is the RAK I am offering!

 I will send one lucky lady some of this gorgeous ribbon. Here is how easy it is to enter for my random draw*You must be or become a member of Let’s Scrap, which you can do by clicking here http://letsscrap.ning.com/ It is free, easy and fast!  I am sure you will love it! I know I do :)
*Become a follower of my blog 
*Leave a comment on my blog telling me you have joined 
And if you would like a second chance in the draw
*Make a card from the sketch I have posted and upload it to the gallery at Let’s Scrap. Please tag it as such 2-4-12,LEAP12
Please note there are no spaces and that LEAP is all capitals. 
**VERY IMPORTANT**
* You must leave a comment on my blog with a link to your card on Let’s Scrap.
The hop ends at 11:59 pm Central Standard time February 29th, which you will be able to track using the clock on the main page of Let’s Scrap.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit.
Your next stop will be the talented
If you get lost along the way or have joined the hop in the middle, 
Mindi Brown @ http://scrapchat-n-coffeetalk.blogspot.com/ is the beginning of the hop. You don’t want to miss any of the fun!
