ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP - EXTENDED!

Today Scrapbooking From the Inside Out is THREE!!! (Well, on July 2nd they were. By the way, if its a website, is it an anniversary or a birthday???)

ANYWAY, they are CELEBRATING with a blog hop...and there are PRIZES!

If you got here from Jamie's Blog , WELCOME!!

If you are just starting here, head on back to Melissa's Blog to get started...because, THERE ARE PRIZES! (Did I mention that already?)

So, first, I was asked to share my favorite layout from my time as an SFTIO Designer. That is a tall order. I was a designer for a year...that is 12 amazing kits to choose from....oh, what to do?

But there was one kit that just seemed to fall in place for me...that was the Enlightenment Kit from September 2010.


I literally loved every layout that kit inspired. It took me less than an afternoon to finish FIVE layouts AND some special creative embellishments:


Anyway...my most favorite layout was this one:


Which, oddly enough, doesn't have that much journaling. I love journaling, so that is sort of an oddity. I believe, tho, that volumes are spoken in just a few words with this one!

So...on to the prizes...Each winner will be given a choice of one of these amazing kits:

Independence:

Optimism:

Friendship:

And one GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be given a $50 gift toward the amazing CRAFT Beach Retreat in Santa Monica.

Here's how you win: Leave a comment for every blog on the hop. You have until 7:00 PM Pacific Time 5:00 PM on THURSDAY to hit each blog and leave your comment. We will draw winners from ALL the comments left on each blog. So...the more comments you leave the greater your chance of getting one of those amazing prizes!!!

So...go leave me a little comment love...and THEN, head on over to Amy's Blog and see what she has in store for you. (browse around while you're there. She does some amazing projects!)

Have a GREAT HOP!!

and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO SFTIO!!!

Peace, ya'll!!

I really love that layout you made, how simply put together with no fancy procedures, but so striking in photo/placement, colors, straight to the point.
