Happy Birthday Sara Z! Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Back in October, I was so excited that I got to attend a 3 day scrapbook retreat called "Crop til you Drop" way up North in Ogdensburg, NY, hosted by the lovely Sara Z.  I pretty sure that we hit it off right away!  :) As a matter of fact, I will be seeing her next week for another scrappy get together!  So excited! (Yes I am pretty much wearing pajamas and didn't think that my photo would be taken that day...)



The lovely girl is celebrating her BIRTHDAY today, and what better way than with a blog hop with her bestest scrappy buddies!!!!  This hops starts today and ends at midnight on February 9th.

Here's what Sara has to say:


“ Its my birthday and I want to offer up some gifts to you – my readers! I have asked a special group scrappy friends to join me in celebrating my birthday with a blog hop – you are going to find a ton of inspection among this talented group!

We have a sketch that was created just for this occasion by my bestie Diana Fisher. 






We have 2 gifts up for grabs!


                   1)  A $30 Gift Certificate to Paper Issues – to one lucky winner who links up their layout based on Diana’s Birthday Sketch to the linky below (on Sara's blog) by midnight on February 9th.  ( You must be a follower of Sara's blog to eligible)

2)      Creative Scrappers / Creating with Sketches – (ebook) – We will be giving away 2 copies of this ebook to two birthday hoppers that leave a comment on each post though out the hop.

Lets get this party started!  Hop along with these amazing girls for even more chances to win some extra goodies! "

Here is the blog list for the hop:

I loved the idea of the large photo on this sketch, so I printed a 4x8(ish) photo of my little guy that I just ook a few weeks ago.  He just turned 18 months on January 19th, and is just totally scaling this whole house...anywhere he can get into!  He is such a boy.  Love him to BITS!



I got my hands on some new My Mind's Eye and just LOVE the bright colors (and have always loved the texture) of their papers.  I rotated the sketch, added a bit of white paint and doodling to the background, and then just a few other bits here and there! Oh and I fussy cut some stars and popped them off the page in some spots, too.






Enjoy the hop and HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY SARA!!!
