Hi everyone!! It is PARTY time at Lasting Memories today! We're celebrating Karen's special day with a "Scavenger Hunt Birthday Hop"! It's her 40th birthday tmw and what better way to celebrate than to have a hop in blogland! Before we get started, you better get yourself a pen and paper because you're going to need it! There are 10 blogs in the hop and each person has chosen an element to use on her layout. Your job is to find all 10 elements, write them down and choose FIVE to include in your layout! Be sure to keep your eyes open because we have sponsors as well as DT members giving goodies away. You may have to do a little something more for the DT candy, so be sure to read every post! Sound like fun?? We think so!!! Ok, lets get to it! You should have arrived here from Haven and if you're just coming by, start at Lasting Memories because you don't want to miss a thing! You'll also find the master hop list there too. For my layout today, I chose stamps for my element.

(Sorry my photo is off... as you can tell i am still with out a computer and have to take the photos with my iPhone or iPad)

And guess what! I'm also showing off one of our sponsors as well! I am promoting SKdigi who is giving away a $6 Certificate to her digi site (an you will love her digis) to one lucky winner! I have used her digis in my LO... all the little fishes and the journal box is from her store.  Seriously she makes the cutest digis.
All you have to do is complete the hop, enter your layout using FIVE elements you've found a long the way and be sure to comment that you've done everything!  Once that is done we will be picking a winner!!

Thanks so much for joining us! You're next stop is Michelle
