Scrap that Baby's Sweet Summertime blog hop


Summer is over here in the Philippines and although it has been raining here the past few weeks, I can still feel the heat of summer because at Scrap That Baby, we're having a fun summer blog hop! :) ***********************************************************************************************
Welcome to the Scrap that Baby's Sweet Summertime blog hop!! Thank you so much for hopping along on our first ever blog hop! If you didnt come from Brandi's blog or you popped upon this blog and didnt realize we were blog hopping you need to go to Scrap That Baby and start the HOP! You will need to comment on ALL of the blogs to be eligible for the grand prizes listed on the main site! Plus so many of our awesome designers are giving away a prize on their blogs as well. You will not want to miss out. There are MANY MANY chances to win! Our theme for this blog hop is SWEET SUMMERTIME!! The members of our design team will all be sharing fantastic summer projects, stories, tips or ideas for keeping cool and having fun in the summer with a baby along.

Here's a fun summer layout I'd like to share with you today:

These photos were taken during our summer vacation in Ilocos at the hotel's swimming pool area. My daughter Marcie loves playing in the pool. It keeps her cool and happy. I also got her a small inflatable pool so she can still go swimming when we're just at home.

*Scrapbook Summer layout tip: I'm sure most of you have some paper flowers in your stash somewhere... Why not try creating a "sun" embellishment out of your yellow flowers like I did with my layout above. Just top the flowers' center with a large button or in this case, a circle shaped foam and there you have it... your very own sun embellishment. :)

Oh and I've got a treat for one of my lucky blog visitors... everyone who comments on this post will be entitled to an entry for a chance to win a cool scrapbook package from me. :) Some of the the prizes included are:




I have more stuff to include in the prize pack but let's just leave it as a surprise for now:) Be sure to leave a comment here and be a follower of my blog too. Now isn't this exciting?

********************************************************************************
Our blog hop runs from today, August 18th until August 22nd . Invite your friends to play for extra entries. You must comment on all the blogs for a chance at the main prize the Scrap that Baby blog will be drawing for prizes on Wednesday August 25th!
