Little Scraps of Heaven Blog Hop Day 5

Welcome to the very first Little Scraps of Heaven blog hop...DAY 5

 I'm so excited to be a part of this hop with an amazing line up along with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects some great blog candy, and an AMAZING grand prize for this hop. This hop runs from Feb 23 - Mar 2, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Be sure to check back everyday to see new projects created using LSHD patterns, and some of us on the hop JUST might have some extra blog candy to share. : )

Here is the complete line-up of the hop

I had so much fun creating these layouts for my son's birthday albums. They are only a few days apart on their birthdays so being both boys it has made it easy to do one birthday party combining the two of them =D They both picked out a pirate theme and I had a BLAST planning this one out. I have posted their party details last year on my blog and you can check it out under the labels listing if you like. I just love how these adorable pirate files from Little Scraps of Heaven turned out and I was so excited to start using them for their party layouts. So here is my show and tell for the day =D
