Happy Birthday 2-last day of the 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 Cyndi'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.

Today is the last day, and I have enjoyed myself.  For my last item, I am concentrating again on my scraps. this time, it a cute card.  The only thing that is new is the glitter strip at the bottom of the card.  The glitter tape is by American Crafts.  The sticker is from sentiment set from the first card I made, and the paper is left over from the layout I made on Friday, the little note cards and happy birthday card from Saturday.  I used the gel pen on all projects, except the cards on Saturday.   The card blank is from a card I started to make a couple months ago, but the card took on new life.

All of the projects you saw the last couple of days is in celebration of many events, from birthdays to life after a illness.   The layout was for celebrating life after breast cancer and the fact that I love the color pink, the note cards can be placed on presents or a quick note if you make them big enough, The happy birthday cards (Saturday's and today's) wishes a person a happy birthday, and the 6x6 is a remembrance of 2nd birthday of a child's party with family and friends. 
My advise to you is to make something.  It does not have to be scrapbook or paper crafting related.  make a piece of jewelry, a pie, shelving, or a favorite casserole, but make something.  You will be surprised that you are actually creative in some way.  It keep your brain thinking and sharp.  It also keeps you from thinking of things you normally do not think of.
Thank you for visiting with me this weekend, and I hope you will stop by my blog more often.  You never know what ideas I may have in store for you.

Be blessed everyday.
