SOC Blog Hop

Welcome to SOC’s 8th Anniversary Blog Hop! I’m glad you stopped by for the celebration! If you’re dropping by from Patricia’s blog, then you’re in the right place! However, if you started here, you can visit the SOC E:spire blog to join this party from the beginning!

To commemorate Scraps of Color’s 8th birthday, I, along with some talented papercrafters, have teamed up to share projects based on the celebrations in our lives. We wanted to have this special blog hop to celebrate this great crafting community where we laugh, play, and create together and encourage and inspire one another. Of course, a blog hop isn’t complete without blog candy! There will be giveaways on various blogs throughout the hop! Plus there will be a SOC blog hop gift awaiting one visitor!! To be eligible for that prize, you must comment on all the blogs by Monday, Oct. 8 at 11pm EST. From all who are eligible, one lucky reader will be randomly drawn. The winner will be posted on all the participating blogs on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

For my celebration, I chose Halloween. Not because it is coming soon but because it was my dear late Mom’s favorite holiday! I will be showcasing more than one project for this hop so check back tomorrow for a new project. One lucky person will be eligible to win a Halloween (or Autumn) Craft Grab Bag! Let’s just say, you will be glad you entered it! My first project is a simple Halloween 12X12 layout. To be eligible to win my blog candy, simply leave a comment on one blog post during the hop, subscribe to my blog, and/or subscribe my YouTube channel. Each comment and subscription will enter your name for a chance to win!
