The Blog Hop is Here Today!

Today I am hosting the blog hop to celebrate the release of the book THE SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE of which I am a contributing artist.

The book is available here:

My prize, donated from generous Mistyfuse, to be awarded to some lucky participant is:
From Mistyfuse (www.mistyfuse.com) A 10yd combination package of Mistyfuse that includes 6 yards of White and 2 yards each of Black and Ultraviolet and a Goddess Sheet. Total retail value: $48!


For a chance to win simply leave a comment on this blog post. I will close the comments at 10pm on July 6 (comments extended to July 8) and choose a winner using the random generator. I will then write a blog post announcing the winner. Comments are closed at 116.

Are you wondering how to use Mistyfuse? Leslie Tucker Jenison has and excellent tutorial here:

To see how a message from a fortune cookie inspired a journal page see my previous post here:
