Can you believe it's been 1 year of blogging for this crazy chick from Brooklyn? I can't. Well actually I can. What amazes me is how far I've come- how much I've learned, the friends I've made and how fulfilled I am by making pretty things just because they make me HAPPY!
To celebrate a few friends and I are doing a mini hop.
After you are done here swing by
Both started the same road last year and are now off to a rip roaring success. I am glad to call them my friends.
There are no rules just stop by each blog and leave some love. I have a mini give away to celebrate hitting 10,000 blog views. I was supposed to celebrate hitting 100 followers but that milestone came and went without me noticing! So I will celebrate hitting 131- YAY!!!

|Lola's Scrapbook cover- inside- the only part I actually finished.|
|One long forgotten fact- I stared scrapbooking right after I got a green scrapbook from |
my best friend, Gia, as a wedding shower present. Page made in August 2009.
|Color blocking? My page to record Lola's naming. Made in July 2009.|
Why so many birds? Lola is named after a bird- Alondra- Meadowlark.
The feedback and camaraderie I get from being part of these fantastic groups is invaluable. I've learned how to create on deadline, how to communicate effectively, how to run a proper blog hop, tips on getting published and how to make a good looking page others will want to swing by your blog to check out.
OH! Before I forget- Paper Issues is also celebrating one year! Why not swing by and play along their October Halloween themed link party? Because I'm always late to the party I just realized I loved Pink Paislee's Phantom line- you can swing by the Paper Issues Etsy Store to check it out as well.
|This page is from when I first started posting on Scrapbook.com. |
I found Etsy and these wonderful inventions called Border punches.
Page from October 2010- 1 year later I'm still proud of this page.
And thank YOU for sticking around! I learn a lot from your comments and from your links as well. You've taught me what works design wise as well as what confuses you and what inspires you.
Here's to many more years of creating and a growing list of "followers" or as I think of you- friends.

I regularly listen to This American Life on NPR while scrapping- it's awesome.
