Celebrating Our Milestones Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of Yolie's Blog Hop: Celebrating Our Milestones!!! 

I see that several of you have already been by and left me some wonderful comments (Thank You!) telling me about your milestones from the post of a few days ago. 

There are so many milestones that we love to scrapbook about, all the firsts, especially those of our children: first word, first step, first tooth, first day of school, first date, and I could go on and on. This is my first time to participate in a blog hop and I am so honored to be asked by Yolie! What a great hop to be in for my first blog hop! If you know Yolie, you know that she is a wonderful person. 

If you arrived here from Yoli's blog  you are in the right place. If not, then you will want to go back to Yolie's blog so that you don't miss anything! She has some amazing prizes going on there!

Today I am featuring a recent milestone for me: my first sale on Etsy. Someone actually wanted to buy a scrapbook page that I created; it's a great feeling! I have found myself actually MISSING the page. I find that funny, but it's true. I have had the page on my blog before, but I wanted to feature it again because now it has become a milestone. I hope you enjoy it. Tomorrow I will be adding a different kind of milestone with plenty of pages created for this blog hop.
This is the tag that went with the page. 
This is the page that I created. Also one of the first pages I've done without photos!

Close ups! I love close ups of scrapbook pages.





The papers, tag, photo turns, clips, and ribbon are from a company that is now out of business called Daisy Bucket. I loved their kits and I miss them. (I have LOTS of stash.) I added Prima flowers, Prima rhinestone shapes, and iRock rhinestones. I used white ink from Close To My Heart to ink the edges and white embossing powder for the shapes in the corners. I also used brads, charms, buttons, thread, and jump rings. I made the pins myself from crafting wire and beads.

I am also offering some BLOG CANDY! If you would like to be entered into a drawing for my blog candy, please become a follower and leave a comment telling me what your favorite scrapbooking topic is or who you like to scrap about.  I am almost always working on pages of my family - my two sons, my husband, and family activities. My favorites are doing my boys' baby pictures (some are done, some are not) and old family pictures. 

The winners will be chosen on Tuesday, February 1st and will have until Friday, February 4th to contact me, so check back on February 1st to see if you won!

I am going to leave a little cliffhanger for you...photos of the blog candy will be up tomorrow. I promise it is worth the wait! Here is a hint for one piece of the candy - it is like a big sister to the last candy I posted. ;)



Here's the complete list of all blogs participating, in case there is a glitch along the way.


Thank you for stopping by my blog! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Sharon
