let's get hopping!

MARCH 29th - 31st

Hi SEM Blog Hoppers! I'm so excited to be part of the Scrapping Everyday Miracles
 Hop into Spring Blog Hop! For most of us (all of us in the Northern Hemisphere), Spring is upon us. (well sort of! we had a huge snow storm here in the Midwest which dumped 8" of snow on the 3rd day of Spring!) Spring is such a beautiful time of year. Yes, it can be rainy and wet, but that rain brings the green grass, gorgeous flowers and the start of new growth. It is also the season of Easter...the holiday that celebrates the resurrection of our Savior...the one who came to give us new life and make us new creations!  "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" 2 Cor. 5:17 

And speaking of "new"...our Design Team has added some new members. Welcome to Toni, Jessica, Helen, Tracey S, and Christy...we're so happy to have them join us this term. 

Each of the Design Team members will share with you a Spring or Easter themed project and answer a couple questions (this is a great way to get to know each of these gals a bit better). Please "HOP" through the list to see the inspiration and learn some fun facts about these creative gals.

Our Blog Hop prize is sponsored by...
Genuinely Jane Studios (GJS) manufactures small and medium sized mini-albums for scrapbooking, mixed media and altered arts in a variety of shapes and sizes. 100% American-made, our facility is located in rural, north-central Missouri and uses only the highest quality materials.  

Owned by a military veteran, and accomplished woodworker,  Mark Carosiello and a lifelong crafter, industry manufacturer’s rep, design team member,  passionate scrapbooker and altered artist, Susan Wojtkowski, we understand the craft and the crafter.

Our Hop into Spring Blog Hop Prize is two Genuinely Jane Wood albums!  You will receive both the dress form album and the flower album.

Here is an example of a flower album after it has been decorated!

To win this prize you'll want to leave a comment on each DT member's blog and we'll randomly choose one blog to select the winner from. All winners will be announced Saturday, April 6th.

Also you'll want to head over to our SEM Facebook Chit-Chat Page for another chance to win.. We have a fun Blog Hop Challenge for you and another great prize from Genuinely Jane Studio . (if you're not already part of the Chit-Chat page, just request an invitation, and we'll get you added in a jiffy).

The project I have made is a Spring layout:

What do you love most about Spring?  I so need Spring to be here! I am anxious for the flowers, green grass and hearing the birds sing outside my scraproom window! I am excited to visit the botanical garden, the zoo and the butterfly house! I can't wait to plant a flower garden. My favorites are gerber daisies and tulips!

Where do you live? I live in St. Louis, Missouri...home of the Cardinals baseball team! I am looking forward to a few games this year. It's a fun town!

I truly appreciate you visiting my blog today and I'm offering a RAK.  My wish for you as fellow scrappers to be able to pick what you like or want from a store in my area that is hopefully in yours as well. So I am giving away a $15 gift card to one of the following stores: Michael's, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's. You pick! Just leave a comment for me and I'll randomly choose a winner from all the comments left by Sunday, March 31st at 11:59pm. The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 6th.

And don't forget that on the SEM Blog, we're going to choose a Grand Prize winner from a randomly chosen Design Team member's comments! Winner to be announced Saturday, April 6th.

If you've missed any stops along the way make sure you go back and comment for your chance to win...have fun hopping!
