Birthday Blog Hop Bash!

Welcome to my blog and get ready for some fun! I am a part of the grand one-year birthday celebration of the Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog and boy do we have lots planned for all of you! We have the hop, challenges on the blog, and games and challenges on our Facebook Chit Chat page as well. AND, there are prizes galore! (more on that later) If you have just come to my blog, you can begin at the beginning of the hop by going to the SEM blog now.

We have been asked to share our favorite SEM challenge that we've done so far. This was hard for me to choose because I've been happy with so many of them. I think Challenge #5 is indeed my favorite though. It was about finding the everyday things that make you laugh. My sons certainly provide many funny moments as this layout illustrates:

I also want to share a project about celebration. I thought a birthday card was the perfect project to show! You can never have too many birthday cards on hand in my opinion. This design also happens to be great for using up scraps!

Did I mention prizes galore? Our hop Grand Prize has been provided by two wonderful sponsors... Paper Loves Glue and Memorable Seasons...  Our grand prize winner will win both a gift certificate for $15 to Paper Loves Glue and a $20 gift Certificate to Memorable Seasons.  If that isn't enough both sponsors have provided a discount to their stores!!!!!

As a special offer to all the followers and participants of Scrapping Everyday Miracles, Paper Loves Glue is offering a special discount of 30% off the entire store. Just enter code SAVE30 upon checkout at This offer is valid until June 13, 2012.

For a limited time (until June 30th), if you shop with us and use the code MIRACLES at checkout, you can save 15% off your purchase. This offer does not apply to items in the Pre-order section since they are already 25% off. Please place separate orders for Pre-order & In-stock merchandise if you’d like items from both. 

So are you all ready?  It is time for some hopping!  Have fun and remember in order to qualify for the Grand Prize you must comment on all the blogs in the line-up. The hop will remain open until Sunday night, June 3rd at 11:59pm PST.
