Just a few of my favorite things - Pals Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the September Pals Blog Hop. This month we are showcasing projects made with the Stampin' Up! tools we love.

You should have just left stop number 14 on the Pals Hop - Peggy Noe at Prettypaprecards.com. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

  • When I saw the theme for this months hop, I thought how am I ever going to choose a few of my favorite things. So, I decided to create a mixed media scrapbook layout, using a few of my favorites {wink...wink} approx. 40...I think...I lost count  = )

  • This is us; me, my husband and our son. This picture was taken 9 years ago, the day before Jacob started kindergarten. We sent it to school with him, so if he became scared or anxious, he could look at the picture and know we were there with him.
  • Scrapbooking is my true passion. After Jacob was born, my paper crafting journey began.
  • I'm no mixed media pro, but I filmed a video while creating the layout. I hope to have it edited and uploaded tomorrow, so if you like mixed media or scrapbooking, come back and you can watch it from start to finish.
