Its BLOG HOP time!!

It is the 3rd Anniversary for Scrapbooking from the Inside Out and in honor of that they're having a Blog Hop.  Being on the design team for SFTIO was a highlight of my 2010 and I'm so excited that they've included me in the hop today!

Now if you've arrived at my blog and are just now hearing of today's HOP, please jump back to Melissa's blog. That's stop number one! There are some amazing prizes and giveaways available.  You do not want to miss out!!

In honor of SFTIO, I wanted to share one of my favorite layouts from my term on the design team.  It was from the month of ENLIGHTENMENT.



So maybe you're new to this blog, or Scrapbooking from the Inside Out in general and you're wondering... "what's it all about?"  Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is more than just a kit club.  Their emotion-based kits encourage a deep self exploration with a theme each month that pushes you to scrapbook about yourself and the things that are important to you.  And on the forum you'll find a warm, welcoming community who share daily triumphs and struggles, and scrapbooking challenges that match that month's theme.  And even if you don't have a kit, you can participate and scrap right along with us.  We'd love to have you!

This month's theme is INDEPENDENCE.  Swing by and check out the inspiring layouts and projects created by the current and newly announced Design Team.  They'll also each be sharing a layout in the rest of this hop!

So make sure you keep on HOPING!  Your next stop is Pamela's blog:  HERE.
And keep going till you hit the Scrapbooking from the Inside Out Blog.  There will be lots to see along the way!  Enjoy!

  3. I love this layout, Shaina! I have an old friend who married a hearing-impaired brother. She learned ASL and they now serve in an ASL congregation in Memphis. Another friend in Atlanta decided to learn ASL to help where the need was great and now serves in a congregation there. Her niece (and another friend of ours) served in a Spanish cong. with her parents until she turned 19, then she up and moved to Mexico and now serves in a Spanish (Mexican?) Sign Language congregation there. There is obviously a lot of need for sign language. I love to watch it spoken, but don't know much more than my ABCs...maybe I should learn more! :)

    OK...off to hop blogs! :D

  10. it is an amazing talent to be able to speak in sign language, whether you do because of necessity or because of choice. my friend does english sign language in a school setting and finds it an incredible gift for the children she works with,
