Link fixed to my portion of the blog hop... There is so much going on this weekend that it took some time to compile all the information but now is the time to sit back, relax & see what's going on over at Stuff to Scrap! It's Stuff to Scrap's 4th birthday & the celebration has started already over in the forum. You'll find lots of fun challenges, special events & a ton of freebies; click here or on the flyer to head to the birthday section for all the fun.
Scrapping fun can be found with some special challenges over in the Birthday Celebration section of the forum! Start your scrapping with the 2013 Birthday Celebration Progressive Scrap hosted by Stephanie of DoubleTrouble Scraps. Starting Saturday, May 4th, one step will be posted in the thread each day; everyone who finishes & uploads their layout to the thread by Saturday, May 11th at 11:59 PM CST will get a prize. Next, Shel of Shel Belle Scraps is hosting a 2013 Birthday Template Challenge, everyone who posts a layout in the thread by Saturday, May 11th at 11:59 PM CST will be entered into a drawing to win a gift certificate to Shel's store. Our last challenge is a Birthday Song Lyric Challenge hosted by Tracy of Growing Pains Scrapped; all you need to do is use part (or all!) of the song Birthday by The Beatles somewhere on your layout. Everyone who participates will get a free mini birthday kit from me & one lucky scrapper will win a $10 coupon to Tracy's store. In addition to our regularly scheduled speed scraps, there will be a Birthday Speed Scrap hosted by Natasha of Ponytails Designs on Thursday, May 9th at 6 PM PT, 7 PM MT, 8 PM CT, 9 PM ET over in the Birthday Celebration section of the forum & chat room. Natasha's speed scraps are always so much fun, you don't want to miss out on this. On Friday, May 10th at 6pm PT, 7pm MT, 8pm CT, 9pm ET join us in the chat room for a Scrap 'n Chat hosted by Christie of Scrappin' Serenity. This is a great way to chat with your fellow forum members & do a little scrapping together over the miles! Finally, end the celebration with a fun Bingo game hosted by Jodi of JMC Designs on Saturday, May 11 at 9 AM PST, 10 AM MST, 11 AM CST, 12 PM EST. Head on over to the 2013 Birthday Celebration Bingo thread for instructions & then join us in the chat room for some fast fun!
Of course we have some sales going on during the celebration, some are for the birthday some for iNSD but all are amazing & for a short time only so get your shopping done now! All fliers are linked to the designers' store.

Like the kit? Want it for free? Just make sure that your birthday is listed in your forum user profile & you'll get the kit sent to you for free on your next birthday! To add your birth date, click on Settings at the top of the forum (it's right above the sun) & then click on Edit Profile & put your birth date in. It's that simple! Collect these great freebies by clicking on the preview to start your journey over at Scraps by Andrea; if you get lost come back here for directions. Please note that the hop will start Saturday, May 4th & run until Saturday, May 11th; if a part is not posted yet, please check back!
