Inspired by Simple Scrapbooks, a Giveaway and a Blog Hop

Welcome into the Green House on the Hill.  Wow there is alot going on here again this week.  Another fun blog hop and another fun giveaway!  But first, today I am taking my inspiration from the latest special issue from Creating Keepsakes titled Simple Scrapbooks.  I created this layout using just some basic supplies and a few extras.  With a few pieces of double sided patterned paper, stickers, twine, circle punches, some washi tape, an ink pad and a scoring board, I created this fun layout of my youngest daughter opening her birthday gifts.



I used the Martha Stewart scoring board to create the flowers from scraps of the patterned paper that I used as the base for the layout.


And now for a little fun, the wonderful folks at Creating Keepsakes are giving me the opportunity to give away a copy of Simple Scrapbooks.


You can purchase a copy of Simple Scrapbooks here.  Click here to see some of the online extras associated with this issue!  To see a sneak peek inside the issue click below. 


And now for the giveaway!  If you would like the chance to win this issue, please leave a comment on this post.  I will randomly pick a winner from all the comments received by Friday evening (4/27/2012).  If you would like additional chances to win this issue please visit the blogs of the very talented ladies lists below.  They are each giving away a copy too!  Heck, you should visit them anyway ... since they always have super fun stuff to share!
