It's my blogiversary!!!



I am so excited to be celebrating my 3-year blog anniversary by giving the anniversary gifts to YOU — the readers! Hop on through the Blog Hop to find prizes and inspiration along the way. 

An anniversary party on my blog wouldn't be a party without a sketch challenge! Here is the sketch for you to play along with.


And here is the layout I made. The pictures are from our trip to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in March. Can you believe it was nice enough in March to go to the zoo?! It was such a nice day.




• Plus, there's a chance to play along with us! Use the sketch I made, link your entry back here on this blog post, and you could win a $30 shop credit to Scrapbook Circle

• You have until April 30th to complete the hop and link up your sketch challenge entry below to be eligible for the hop prize! 

• But that's not all! If you leave a comment on this post you are eligible to win a $20 shop credit to Precious Remembrance Shop!

• If you leave another comment that you are a follower (new or old) you can win this fantastic prize from Paper Issues. It's a Crate Pretty Party! It includes one set of Accent Cuts, 3 yards of Caribbean, Blossom and Pink Sorbet twine from The Twinery, one yard of each color of Hug Snug Seam Binding in Spring Green and Yellow, trinket pins from Maya Road, a clear star, 2 green leaves and one stacked pearl. Also included are 10 mini white clothespins from Canvas Corp. Amazing, right?!



Let's start hopping!


Hop along with the lovely ladies below and have even more chances to win prizes as well as be inspired to use the sketch before April 30th.

Diana Fisher ----> (YOU ARE HERE)

Thank you so much for hopping along with us for my 3rd blogiversary! I am thrilled to be in the company of these talented ladies and hope you'll find the hop fun and inspirational, as well as motivate you to play along with the sketch. 

Can't wait to see what you all make using the sketch!
