For those of us who are left behind, we decided that we wanted to have some fun too! So we came up with the "For Those Who are Left Behind" challenge blog hop. Here's how it works . . . each blogger has come up with a challenge and posted it on their blog for you to do. (The list of blogs will be following.)
Once you get a challenge done, you go back to that blog and submit your project by providing a link/post of a picture of your project per the instructions of that particular blogger. Some bloggers are using Mr. Linky, some are having you email pictures, and some are having you put your link in their comments . . . Please be sure to pay attention to which way each blogger wants because there are prizes for posting/linking your projects. Deadline for posting your projects is 9am MST Thursday July 5th. ***NOTE: Due to there being power outages in some areas and a US holiday right before the deadline, the deadline has been extended to 9am MST Friday July 6th to be eligible for the main blog hop prizes. Each individual blogger has the choice of extending the deadline for their own blog candy. Thanks!***
Two (2) more things about your projects, your projects should be NEW projects that haven't been used in other CC challenges before. And you may combine up to 3 challenges on one (1) project, but you must post it on each individual blog.
Prizes? you ask . . . well, for participating and/or hosting in this blog hop, you will be eligible for $10 CropCredit on CropChocolate, "Homemade" mini theme paper by EP, "Blue Jean" paper potpourri by Doodlebug, and some distress inks. How's that for incentive? :) Winners will be announce at 9am MST Monday July 9th. I will post them here and on the CC message board.
Some of the bloggers on the hop have mentioned that they plan to offer blog candy. Be sure to look for those and follow the instructions they would like you to do to be eligible for those prizes.
I would like to take time right now to thank everyone who helped put together this blog hop. It was short notice, but we did it. I am in awe of every single one of you. I would also like to thank all the bloggers who took time to come up with a challenge. Because of all your hard work, I will be randomly selecting a participating blog to win a surprise blog candy from me. All you need to do, in addition to posting your project, is to participate in the actual hop by at least commenting on each blog and I will then select one random winner from the list of blogs to win my surprise blog candy.
And here we go . . . for my challenge, I wanted to do something that reminded me of "spring". So I decided to do a layout of what we did over Spring Break last year. So my challenge for you is to do a project (using at least 50% CC products) that reminds you of Spring or what you would do on a Spring Break. Pretty simple?
Here's what I came up with for my project:
"Beach Babe" paper by Fancy Pants (from the Fancy Pants paper grab bags)
"Beach Babe" chipboard stickers (large heart)
Walnut Stain distress ink
Non CC Products:
"Beach Babe" rub-ons by Fancy Pants
"Beach Babe" chipboard banners by Fancy Pants (small heart and star)

Once you have completed this challenge, come back and using Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post, submit your project. I will also be giving away my own blog candy . . . a set of the Summer Edition Distress Inks. To be eligible, submit your project, become a follower and leave a comment that you have done so or already are. I will be drawing a name Monday July 9th and posting here and on the CC message board.
Once more, remember to have your projects posted by 9am MST Thursday July 5th in order to be eligible for the big prizes and for my blog candy. ***Deadline has been extended to 9am MST Friday July 6th***
