Our One Year Anniversary Blog Hop & RAK(s)!

Welcome to our Anniversary Blog Hop! I am so excited that we are celebrating our 1st anniversary. I can't believe that Triple the Sketch was started one year ago this weekend! Wow! Thank you so much to my amazing designers (current and alumni) for their beautiful and gorgeous creations and their friendship! You all are amazing! And thank you to all of you subscribers! This blog wouldn't be what it is without all of you!

So, to celebrate today, we have an Anniversary Blog Hop and a contest! First, let's talk about the contest! One lucky random winner will receive this "well-rounded" paper crafters kit:

Includes: Little Monkey’s Starter Set to store stamps, Melissa Frances glitter, Doodlebug birthday stamp set, Maya Road coaster album, Maya Road chipboard birds, Memento sand desert stamp ink, DCWV Retro Print paper stack, CM circle maker, 7Gypsies door hardware

To enter to win, you need to use this week's sketch (Sketch 51). You must create a card, layout, tag, or altered item using this sketch. Upload it to your favorite gallery or blog, and post a link in the comment section here. Entries are due by 11:59 p.m. CST Sunday, April 5th. A random winner will be drawn and posted on Monday, April 6th. Here is Sketch 51.Okay, now about the blog hop! To start your blog hop, please visit Alisa's blog first! If you haven't ever taken part in a blog hop, it's easy! You start with Alisa. Once at Alisa's blog, she will give you a link to the next designer's blog that you should "hop" on to and so on throughout the rest of the design team. Each designer will provide you with more inspiration and maybe another chance to win something! Hop on through and see what you find! :)

And hopefully you won't encounter any bumps along the hop but if you do, here is the blog hop order with links:
Alisa Schenck
Chelsea Cook
Danielle Holsapple
Danielle Wycough
Elizabeth Carney
Ember Sherman
Gloria Stengel
KellyJean Gettelfinger
Marcee Rodgers
Tanis Giesbrecht

Now make sure you see the post below so that you don't miss the designers take on Sketch 51! There are some fun layouts for you to see. And for more inspiration using this sketch, come back tomorrow for cards and an altered piece! Have fun with the sketch, and good luck to all who enter!

Happy Anniversary girlies.

I have created a card using the latest sketch.
I used some of my much loved fabric to create a little apple tree to which I added some buttons.

I believe Tanis designed that stamp so I figured I was doubly appropriate (hope I am right on that one!)

Congrats on your one year anniversary! May you have many more!
