Welcome the 2011 Sous Chef Blog Hop

A (Laurel) and Hardy Welcome to the Apron Strings 2011 Sous Chefs!  A wonderful bunch of talented scrapbookers who are sure to get the creative juices going in you this year.

To get to know them, I'm sending you off to distant corners of the web to visit their great blogs.  You'll find fabulous inspiration with Apron Strings kits, plus their other fantastic work.  While you're blog-hopping, leave a little love behind and be entered into drawings.  Yes, that's plural; drawings.  They'll each be drawing a name from the comments left on the the "Hop" posts.  Winners will receive a Cookie Jar Treat, deadline to leave your comments is Sunday evening.

But wait. . .there's more.  As you hop around, collect the answers to the question, "Why Apron Strings?" and have a chance to win a Basic Grey 2011 calendar.  Each of the designers has a phrase to collect, once you have them all, email them to me (lori@apronstringsdesigns.com) by Sunday evening and I'll draw a name from the entries.

And if you act now you can even get some scrapbooking done this weekend, as I'll post a few challenges that could net you a Cookie Jar Treat too!

Is there anything you do this weekend that won't earn you a chance at a Cookie Jar Treat?  Yes.  Not play.  If you don't play, you can't win.

How's that for starting the new year?!  Goodies, inspiration, treats, completed pages, more goodies.  Did I mention the goodies?

So off you go, first to:
Then you'll continue on to see the rest of the ladies:

Remember to come back here later today and through the remainder of the weekend to gather some challenges to play with. 
 
Now - off with you!

Thanks a bunch for the blog hop. The ladies were so inspiring, and it made me just have to sign up for autoship on one of your kits. I wanted them all but we will start with one. Cool!

Thanks for the wonderful blog hop. I wasn't able to participate in the challenges though. :-( We have a friend moving in with us and I have to rearrange some rooms, including my craft room.
