SOC 8th Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to Scraps of Color's 8th Anniversary Blog Hop! I'm glad you stopped by for the celebration! If you're dropping by from Princess's blog, then you're in the right place! However, if you started here, you can visit the SOC E:spire blog to join this party from the beginning!

To commemorate Scraps of Color's 8th birthday, I have teamed up with some super talented ladies to share projects based on the celebrations in our lives. We wanted to have this special blog hop to celebrate this great crafting community where we laugh, play, and create together and encourage and inspire one another.

Blog Hop Candy: The Good Life paper pack by Fancy Pants Designs (includes 12 double sided papers, sticker and die cut sheets. Matching layered stickers, a small black shadowbox tray, and American Crafts 24 pack of bakers twine--12 different colors (120 yards total).

Of course, a blog hop isn't complete without blog candy! There will be giveaways on various blogs throughout the hop! Plus there will be a SOC blog hop gift awaiting one visitor!! To be eligible for the prize above, you must comment on all the blogs by Monday, Oct. 8 at 11pm EST. From all who are eligible, one lucky reader will be randomly drawn. The winner will be posted on all the participating blogs on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

As soon as I glued down that text paper, I realized that y scrap sheet wasn't cut straight so the whole card looks crooked!

I was supposed to be sharing a mini album (!!) today, but since I've been so tired after work, it still needs a whole lot of work. Instead I have a graduation card that my cousin asked me to make for her husband's aunt who is getting her master's degree on Sunday. Go auntie!! (I literally just finished...) The image is from Jackson's Digital Expressions.

My cousin also asked me to make a retirement card for one of her coworkers. I should be finishing that up soon and will update my post.**UPDATE** Since my cousin really likes this card with MelJen's Army Bear I went with the same feel for her requested card.

I only ever see troops in the desert uniform, but my parents were both in the military and this is what theirs looked like. Plus, I don't have any sand camo paper!
Honestly, I've never been so happy to be able to look at something I already colored while I was coloring. I was able to figure out the colors and not have to do much thinking... I used some Lawn Fawn alphabet stamps on the inside, but you know I didn't take a picture of that before running to the post office! ;D

Since I'm super sweet, I'm offering some candy to help you with a couple of celebrations in your own life! I have two stamp sets, Lawn Fawn's Plus One and Stampendous!'s Birthday Brackets, for one of my followers who leaves me a comment before the hop is over...
