I have thought about this for some time now - and I have come to the decision to step down as the coordinator for the PSP Community Blog Hop. With all that I have been through this year with my family and my father's passing - my heart just is not in it any longer. I am thinking of switching careers all together and going in a totally different creative route ... but that decision has yet to be made.
If you would be interested in taking over the PSP Blog Hop 2012 (including taking ownership of the blog and the Facebook Fan Page) please contact me and I'll get the details to you.
Thank you - to all of the sponsors, designers, and participants who participated last year and made it such a wonderful event for the community. I am honored to have been able to make a dream a reality and thank each of you for your overwhelming enthusiasm and support.

For Contributors & Participants
This year we have a Link Up! section for both contributors and sponsors! If you plan on participating or contributing during this year's event - please go to our LINK UP! page and add your blog, your web site, your Pinterest page and/or your Facebook Fan page - add as many as you want! Let others come by and discover you and the awesomeness that is YOU! Add your information today and get some free advertisement for your site(s) for the entire year!
We tested out two different giveaway programs - Rafflecopter and PunchTab - and this year we will be using the PunchTab giveaway program. Each prize contribution will have its own widget to enter - so you only need to enter the prize giveaway that you wish to win, or you can enter all of them to increase your chances of winning. At the end of the event, one winner will be randomly selected. The added benefit of using PunchTab is that you will be able to earn rewards each time you visit the site, in addition to earning badges as well for liking us or tweeting about the PSP Blog Hop each day.
All Blog Hop 2012 prize contributions must be uploaded to the contributors folder on Box.com prior to the Blog Hop beginning. The only exception to this will be tubes or gift certificates or custom-made items contributed from a licensing agency, independent artist store or scrap kit store. If you have any questions or concerns - please use the CONTACT US form or, better still - join our contributors Yahoo Group HERE.
You can add your prize contribution for the 2012 Blog Hop at any time between now and September 30, 2012 by clicking HERE and entering the information requested. Don't forget - Gold Contributors (anyone offering a prize package valued at over $60.00 US Dollars) will receive their banner ad (125x125) placed on our Gold Contributors page as they are received (we are in the process of updating some things on the site so be patient - they will be posted shortly for those of you who have already submitted your prizes).
All Blog Hop prize contributions must be awarded within seven (7) days of the event conclusion. The only exception will be for custom-made items - and these items should be completed and delivered no later than sixty (60) days from the event conclusion at most. A deadline must accompany all custom-made items offered so that the winning recipient knows when to expect receipt of their prize.
Contributors are required to be a part of our Yahoo Group (or have a representative be a part of the Yahoo Group on their behalf) to receive all updates and behind-the-scenes information and to help you with coordinating the event and answer any questions that you may have. Please feel free to go daily digest or no mail during 'down times' between blog hops, but we would appreciate you being on regular mail during the two months prior to the hop when everything is being organized in the event there are questions or concerns that need to be addressed.
As always - feel free to email me with any questions you may have directly. I am looking forward to our Blog Hop 2012 this October being bigger and better than last year and loads of fun and excitement for everyone combined!
We Thank You!
