SEM Hop into Spring Blog Hop

MARCH 29th - 31st

Hi Everyone I hope you are having fun so far on our Scrapping Everyday Miracles
 Hop into Spring Blog Hop ! If you came here from Toni's blog than great!  If not you can start at the beginning at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.

We were asked to create a Spring or Easter inspired project.  I realized that I had created very few Easter projects in the past years so this year I have tried to create more and after Easter I plan on scrapping some great layouts.  Today I have to share some cute Easter treat bags I made for my daughter and husband.  I got the idea from the blog The Idea Room and on the blog she offered a free printable.  I printed it out and then decorated it even further with patterned paper, brads, twine and flowers.  If you wanted to make some of your own you could of course just print out the bag toppers use them like they are because they are already adorable straight out of the printer.  Here is the link to the printable

I used the new Easter brads from the Eyelet Outlet on the bags.  You can find them here Rabbit Brads- Pastel.

Each of the DT were asked to answer some fun questions about ourselves.
What do you love most about Spring? I love spring because I know that really soon I will be able to garden again.  I love my garden and spend most of the summer outside working in it.  The thing is I have a really small yard but that doesnt stop me.  I have fruit trees and bushes, flowers and roses and both a herb and vegetable garden.  My dream is to have a big yard with a green house one day!

Where do you live? I live in Bodø, Norway which is in the North of the country above the arctic circle.  We have the midnight sun in the summer and the sun never sets!  In the winter we have the Northern Lights.  I am so blessed to have experienced living up here.  I wont lie it is very hard at time but it is also an amazing place to live and to raise my daughter.  However I do miss my home and family a lot.  I am from Southern California and my family all live in Orange County.  It is hard to be so far from my family but I know that God has a plan and a reason for having us here in Norway.

We have some fabulous prizes this weekend.  First we have our grand prize offered by
If you hop through all the DT blogs and leave a comment you could win
two Genuinely Jane Wood albums!  You will receive both the dress form album and the flower album.

That isnt all if you head over to the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Chit Chat Group you can enter to win another great prize from Genuinely Jane Studios.

Now I also have a prize for one lucky person that comments on my blog!  You can win a prize from the Eyelet Outlet.  Instead of me picking the prize I am going to let you!  You can choose 3 packages of brads and 5 packages of bling.  Here are some of the fun brads and bling you might pick for your prize.

To win any of the prizes from the hop you must comment on the blogs by Sunday, March 31st at 11:59pm. The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 6th.

Here is the line up for the blog hop... Next you will head to Jessica's blog.  if you missed any of the stops along the way make sure you go back and comment for your chance to win...have fun hopping!
