sassa-hopping


welcome to my stop on the sassafras NSD blog hop. you probably arrived via anna's blog, if not, make sure your head over there to get one more chance to win a $20 prize pack. all you have to do for both anna's blog and mine is leave a comment and you'll be entered. pretty easy :) you have until monday at 9:00 PM EDT to enter. i'll draw a random winner monday night. 

my layout uses sweetly smitten, ellie's tale, and paper crush, i used a sketch (it's down in the last section of the bonus sketches) i found on the scrapbook and cards today website, changed it up a bit and ended up with a layout i adore. old old old and poorly shot pictures can look good when paired with happy prints and colors! i have one question though, what were we thinking, giving a 1 year old a donut?!?!!?


next stop takes you all the way over to france. have a fabulous trip and tell gaelle bonjour!

should you get lost half way across the ocean, you may go back to the sass blog for a complete listing of stops along the way.

Such a cleverly cute layout! Love all of the negative space and that title down the middle is ingenious!

TeenaBugg38 said...

LOL...,this is too cute :) I think we all turn out kids loose with things we normally ahve the sense NOT to give them on the first vbday...I like the donut idea tho....somehow it seems less messy that the traditional cupcake. ....altho I am sure the sugar rush was just as intense.....lol
