Hi everyone!! It is PARTY time at Lasting Memories today! We're celebrating Karen's special day with a "Scavenger Hunt Birthday Hop"! It's her 40th birthday tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than to have a hop in blogland! Before we get started, you better get yourself a pen and paper because you're going to need it! There are 10 blogs in the hop and each person has chosen an element to use on her layout. Your job is to find all 10 elements, write them down and choose FIVE to include in your layout!
Be sure to keep your eyes open because we have sponsors as well as DT members giving goodies away. You may have to do a little something more for the DT candy, so be sure to read every post! Sound like fun?? We think so!!! OK, let's get to it! You should have arrived here from Denise and if you're just coming by, start at Lasting Memories because you don't want to miss a thing! You'll also find the master hop list there too. I also have it at the end of this post.
For my layout today, I chose diecuts for my element and I did TWO LAYOUTS. There are no photos because they are a gift.
Journaling: Papertrey Ink: May You touch fireflies and stars,
dance with fairies,
and talk to the man in the moon.
May you grow up with love,
surrounded by the people who care.
