celebrating a WCS birthday


write.click.scrapbook. is turning 3 today!

and you are invited to our little party.

we've set up a delightful blog hop for you to enjoy.

first you're going to collect some letters. you can either start here at my blog and work forward then backward, or start at the very beginning (probably the easiest way to collect letters in the right order), which is alexandra's blog. but if you are here from donna's blog, ready to move on through the rest of the hop, the letter you're collecting from me is the letter:

next, you get to read why i love WCS, which would be because of three things: 
  1. the very unique format we follow. the weeks dedicated to one thing. the months dedicated to whatever the hostess wants to write about. eclectic at its finest.
  2. the desire to promote simple scrapbooking. i still haven't quite gotten it, but i keep trying.
  3. marnie. she is my friend.
moving on, june's gallery is all about being inspired: WCSer by WCSer. we were paired with another team member and had very little direction other than, "be inspired by her." i was very lucky to be paired with alexandra sirugue-macleod. she has long been one of my favorite scrappers because she is so very neat and tidy, but with a dash of wonkiness sprinkled in for good measure. her card, seen below, is what i took for my inspiration piece. it was so easy to jump off from this point, my layout fell together in less than an hour. good for me. see? still learning to embrace simple...



here's a sneak of my layout inspired by alexandra's:


now it is time to continue on to the next stop on our celebratory blog hop. lucky you, that takes you to the blog of the ever talented and even more lovely fellow emily, emily spahn.
