Happy 3rd Birthday Simply Obsessed!! C'Mon & Hop Along



Welcome to my Party of Five blog & Simply Obsessed's Blog Hop to celebrate it's 3rd Birthday. I'm one of the designer's over there. It's a totally fun place to hangout and chat and Heather creates some amazing kits. You should have reached me from Andrea's blog, if you arrived here another way and would like to join in on the fun you can go to the SO blog here to get started.


As soon as I heard we were going to be doing this blog hop with a birthday theme, I knew just what I wanted to make. My youngest kiddos just turned 3 and I knew I HAD to make a shadowbox to commemorate the big day. I picked up a cheapy little box at Mike's and started playing with some favorite goodies of mine: October Afternoon K & Co Handmade, and Girls' Paperie diecuts. The key to creating a cool shadowbox is to add layers at varying depths. Some of my stuff is even added to the outer frame and the glass within. Hope this will inspire you to make a little crafty something yourself.


**** Ok, now that we are done here, head on over to SO member Brianna's blog to continue on the SO 3rd Birthday Blog Hop. Don't forget YOURS TRULY is hosting the Scrap That Vacation crop this weekend. We've already started the fun with signups and a game. Look for a Pre-Crop Challenge later today in the forums. The rest of the scrappy craziness will start bright & early tomorrow. Can't wait to "see you" over there. Hope you enjoyed my project and will come back and visit Party of Five again.

**** Leave me a comment and tell me what you're most looking forward to with Fall quickly approaching and I'll draw a name for a little RAK O Fun.

  1. Jenny, all of your projects always turn out so cute!! This one is no exception. I hope the twinnies had a wonderful birthday last month!! :)

    What am I looking forward to with fall... cooler, less humid weather. A good frost to get rid of these nasty "sting bugs" as Ben calls them. The bees are ferocious right now. The crispness in the air and apple/pumpkin picking.
