NSD2015 Challenge & Giveaway



Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful, fantabulous National Scrapbook Day!  Several of the American Crafts Design Team gals are hosting challenges on their blogs during the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day 2014 Blog Hop! I hope you'll be inspired to get crafty and participate along with us. Some of us (hint hint) are even offering prize packs!



You may or may not have seen this layout before but it's one of my faves so far this year. It pushed my creative boundaries. I've painted and misted on my layouts for years but this one was just different and so much fun! You can see the original post with the how to details for this HERE.


My challenge to you is to Unleash Your Inner Artist - add a splash of color on your layout or card using paints, mists, watercolors or gelatos. PLEASE leave a link to your project in the comments below so I can ooh and ahh over it!


I would love to bless one lucky winner with this American Crafts Shimelle prize package. 

It's super easy to enter to win with these 3 required steps + bonus entries:
  1. Follow me on Instagram @heatherleopard and like the giveaway image on my IG feed
  2. Repost the giveaway image on your IG feed
  3. Use the hashtag #heatherleopardNSD2015giveaway AND tag me @heatherleopard (this is the only way to find you for the random drawing)
Bonus entries - for every 3 friends you tag on my giveaway post on Instagram, I'll give you a bonus entry. Tag 6 friends for 2 bonus entries, 9 friends for 3....the more the merrier!
I will announce the winner one week from today so make sure to check back in by end of day May 9th, 2015.


Thanks for stopping by today and Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
