Sara's Birthday Blog Hop

I am so excited to be a part of another Birthday Blog Hop!  Today, we are celebrating Sara Zenger's Birthday with a fun sketch, inspiration, and prizes!!  You should have arrived here from the very talented, Cassie Box's Blog!

We received an awesome sketch from Diana Fisher to use for the Hop!  I love that the sketch included a large photo and here's what I did with it:


I stayed fairly close to Diana's sketch.  I don't have the ability to print up to 12x12, so I printed my photo as wide as possible on my 8.5x11 printer.  Then I used a small piece of patterned paper to fill in the left over space.  And I thought adding my title to a tag that I cut on the Cameo, would make up for the shortness of the picture.  I will admit that most of my photos are Portrait, and I had to dig all the way back to our trip to the Pumpkin Patch this past Fall to find one that would work.  I could have used multiple photos, but I really wanted to go with the larger photo.

Now, here's where the fun comes in for you...There are 2 gifts up for grabs, for participating in the Blog Hop:

1.  A $30 Gift Certificate to Paper Issues - For one lucky Winner, who links up their layout based on Diana's sketch, to the Linky on Sara's Blog by Midnight February 9th.  (You must be a follower of Sara's Blog, to be eligible)

2.  Creative Scrappers/Creating with Sketches EBook - Two copies will be given away to two Birthday Hoppers, who leave a comment on each post throughout the Hop.
