Scrapping Everyday Miracle's 2nd Birthday Celebration Blog Hop: July 11th-14th

 
Welcome to each of you!  We are so excited to have you join us for our 2nd Birthday Celebration!  It has been an exciting year here at Scrapping Everyday Miracles and we are so glad that you have chosen to explore the miracles with us throughout the year.  We have a fun hop planned for you this weekend, but that is not all!!  

We will also have 5 fun and easy card challenges that you can enter to win some amazing prizes. The celebration doesn't stop with the blog. On our facebook group, we will be offering games each day of the event that will have some fabulous prizes.  We will also be posting and discussing the challenges that we created for the Birthday Celebration.  We might even sneak in some fun random giveaways.  

So let the Hop begin....

Each of the Design Team members and our Guest Design Team members have created a project with the birthday theme to show you on their blogs.  Make sure that you hop along to each blog because you never know where there might be more prizes hiding along the way! 
 In addition to prizes, we have a special birthday scavenger hunt for you :)   On several of the blogs there will be a project photo that has birthday hats hidden in the photo. :)   As you hop through,  count how many hats you find.  When you are finished with the hop write the total number of hats you found in a comment on the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Birthday Celebration blog hop post (It's at the end of the blog list down below!).  Have fun and happy hopping!

All My Faves: A layout for Scrapping Everyday Miracles

I'm a new member of the Design Team at Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog, and the July Main Challenge is to scrap about your favorites, and to incorporate the twist of office supplies!
 
This was an easy topic for me:  family, fun and fellowship!  These shots are from a birthday party a few years ago, and I was blessed to get so many pics of our family members, together!  The office supplies I chose to use were the 6 red paperclips, and the green staples on the corners of the photo mattes!  I used a combination of Simple Stories, My Mind's Eye, Pink Paislee, and Bazzill cardstock!  I am really into using little banner strips currently, so I made several of them with   
     scraps!
