'We're Turning Two' Blog Hop & Challenge!

Hi everyone! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog is turning TWO this month! Can you believe it?! Time sure has flown by since we started this amazing journey in March 2013! We've seen lots and lots of gorgeous projects entered into our challenges, and we couldn't be happier about the circle of friends we've made along the way! :)

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're excited to bring you our "We're Turning Two" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by the absolutely amazing AuroraWings


Come hop with us for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the AuroraWings Etsy Shop! How awesome is that?! ;)

Okay, here comes the fun part... as you hop to each of our blogs, collect scrambled letters at each stop, and be sure to leave each designer some love. Once you have collected all the letters, unscramble them and email your guess to ltscb@mail.com - then all the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the AuroraWings gift certificate!

All of the LTSCB designers are using 'two of something' on our inspiration projects to coincide with our challenge blog turning two. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a project using 'two of something' (two flowers or two pearls or two gemstones or two ribbons, etc.) for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guess and to link up your project so we can make sure you get two entries into the drawing!**

Please note that our normal stamping rule applies... we are a stamping challenge blog so we need to see some stamping (rubber/clear or digi) on your project. 

Now, are you ready for some awesome inspiration?! Here is the complete line-up - each designer is proudly showcasing a project they created with a gorgeous AuroraWings image! Remember to leave each designer some love and collect your letters as you go!


We hope you enjoy the hop and if you get lost along the way, you can always come back here for the line-up to get you back on track! Do be sure to check out all the gorgeous AuroraWings images - it's very likely you'll find one you just can't live another day without! They are so amazing! Another huge thanks to AuroraWings for this sponsorship!

This blog hop and challenge will run for one week, ending on April 5th at 6:00 PM EST. And remember... we need to see some stamping (rubber/clear or digi) on your project if you link up. Be sure to check back with us on April 8th for the winner of the $20 AuroraWings gift certificate! ;)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Prize: 2 images of choice to winner
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.

I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn/ sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers.

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
