It's Birthday Time!


Welcome to the Get Picky 1st Birthday Blog Hop! 

We are celebrating our first year with a very exciting reveal as we unveil our 13th Sketch with you today and share the beautiful creations of both present and past designers from our first year!  Some of the team members will be offering prizes so you will want to visit all of the blogs to increase your chances of winning a prize.  We are also offering a major prize along with the chance at a Guest Designer spot for the month of November if you visit and leave a comment at all of the blogs in our blog hop and participate in Sketch Challenge #13.  The Blog Hop starts today and will remain open until midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on October 28th so this will give you all plenty of time to visit everyone’s blogs and create a layout for the sketch challenge.

Here is Sketch #13:
And here is my layout: 

















































As we mentioned, there are lots of great birthday presents up for grabs along our hop today.  Some of our designers will be offering a RAK of their own and of course there is the chance to become our Guest Designer for November....but what's a celebration without that very special gift.


We are so very excited to also announce that Imaginisce has been kind enough to sponsor us with an awesome prize for our very special birthday celebration:

W.O.W.  Am I right?!
Get Picky is the first stop of our birthday journey where you will find the complete list of all blogs in case there is a glitch along the way.  If you would like to play, just follow along the blog path in order so you don’t miss anyone.

Remember, if you want to be considered for the Guest Designer spot in November, once you have visited all the blogs and uploaded your entry for Sketch Challenge #13, please make sure that you go back to the Get Picky Blog and leave a comment on the challenge post.

The blog hop begins here: Get Picky Blog

The bubble gum machine is so clever and love that button. Thanks for sharing this cheerful layout with us. I am sure your girls will love this one. Great take on the sketch. The one think on my wish list right now would be more Ranger Distress inks and the new stains. I love using them in my scrapbooking, but having some new Minds Eye paper would be a plus too.
