Scrapbook Steals Birthday Blog Hop!



For those of you hopping along in the Scrapbook Steals Blog hop you should have just landed here from the blog of the ever so talented and wonderful Erica Bass

Wow! #1 I can't believe that my beloved ScrapbookSteals.com is FOUR YEARS OLD! #2, I can't believe that I get to help celebrate this milestone with participating in my very first blog hop ever! I'm so truly honored that I get to wrap up the fun in the lineup!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jana, Rett, Melodee, Brittany and the rest of the crew!

For those of you that don't know, 4 years ago, when ScrapbookSteals was still in it's itty bitty infancy my dear friend Melodee dragged me out of my "scrapbooking retirement" and asked if I would work very party time with her doing customer service.

While I genuinely enjoyed connecting with the customers via customer service, my true passion was in bringing inspiration to the fans.

With a little head strong attitude by myself, Melodee and I began to morph the ScrapbookSteals.com community into what it is today.

I'll never forget my first Mid Week Mojo and the gajillions I did over the following 4 years in my employment there. (Okay, maybe it was only 100's but still....) ;)

So when Melodee challenged me to create a layout about something from 2009, without a doubt, it had to be the beginning of my journey with such a wonderful company, which resulted in a crop of friends that are truly lifelong.


Fittingly almost all of the product on this page is even from steals over the years. ScrapbookSteals.com is really *that* good. 



I will always and forever be so grateful for my time spent with such an amazing company, but alas all good things sometimes come to an end and my end came about by being recruited to another amazing company which has been featured on ScrapbookSteals.com several times—Kiwi Lane Designs

While I genuinely miss my crown as the Mojo Mama, I know I'm where I need to be for my family at this time and have been blessed with an amazing opportunity to work as the Kiwi Lane Marketing Director. 

If you haven't had a chance to use any Kiwi Lane Designer Templates, I'm giving away my very favorite set of border templates, the Cascade Trails set to one lucky person that becomes a follower of my pathetic little blog AND leaves me a comment. Yeah. I'm pimping myself out for some warm fuzzies.  :D


LOOK! YOU CAN WIN THIS! ^^^^^^^^^

You have until Sunday night, July 14th at 11:59 PM MST to leave your comment for your chance to win. 

If you aren't already planning on it you wont want to miss out tonight on the ScrapbookSteals online crop where you can participate in fun challenges (including creating a layout that is 2009 oriented), and having the chance to win lots of amazing prizes! Word on the street is another favorite, We R Memory Keepers will be there. Hmmmmm... Just might need to stop by!



HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCRAPBOOKSTEALS! You know I love ya!  Mmmmwaahhh!!
