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 tmw 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, lets get to it! You should have arrived here from Claire 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. For my layout today, I chose pockets for my element.
My son and I went to the beach, where we collected sea shells. On the bottom picture I have glued a mini magnifying glass to show how far out people could go to swim.
I have hidden journaling pockets everywhere! If you have been following me, you know I love my hidden journaling and pockets on layouts. I have four pockets on my page. Starting at top left, I have hidden journaling. I have glued, with Crystal Effects, a sea shell to all journaling spots. The next pocket I made with blue glitter paper and my score board. I used a blue mesh bag and placed our sea shells from the beach in this pocket.
Here is another hidden journaling pocket. I asked my son what his favorite part of this day was. He said it was swimming with Mommy! So this is what I wrote and placed in this pocket. Why should I have to write all my thoughts on these layouts?!!
Here is an up-close shot of the pocket of sea shells.
Don't forget, for the grand prize you have to complete the hop, enter your layout using FIVE elements you've found a long the way and be sure to comment that you've done everything!
Thanks so much for joining us! You're next stop is Darcy!
