Who's That Girl Blog Hop & First Challenge.

First welcome to my blog and thank you for joining me on the journey of documenting Who's That Girl. I am honored to be part of this super great design team and can't wait to get a chance to know all of you playing along through your pages! For those of you playing along with our blog hop I am offering some blog candy for one person chosen at random who finishes the blog hop. First you must post a comment on my page and then on the Who's That Girl blog. Ive got a stash to rival most scrapbook stores so it will be pretty generous (I love sending RAKs!) If you got here by some other method and want to play along here are the links in order:)

The first challenge is a take on Ali Edward's idea of One Little Word concept. Instead of picking a word for the year we were to chose one word to describe us!
I really thought about this one as there were so many that came to mind: sarcastic, natural, loyal, stubborn, playful etc... I finally decided on GEEK. It somehow just fit my mood and where I am right now. Here is the dictionary definition of GEEK: The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as "a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc." That's me. Well a good part of me. I play with Blythe dolls, I obsessively collect scrap crap, I love video games like Diablo II and World of Warcraft, I am pretty much constantly on a computer and am addicted to my itouch, I am in love with the TV show Big Bang Theory (it doesn't hurt that I married a physicist), and all sorts of other geekiness (like playing with legos). So this year I am embracing my inner geek and telling her to step forth because the stuff she loves brings me a lot of joy! For my layout I wanted to try doing it digitally to go along with the whole geek theme. Here is my first ever Digi layout (I did cheat a little and use an Ali Edwards template) So I hope you will leave me a comment and hop on over to Cindy's blog to see what she came up with :) Cindy: http://who-gives-a.blogspot.com/
