Welcome! I'm so pleased you are here. Whether you meant to or not, you've reached the 28 Blog Hop!
paperheARTproject is the hop's first blog. Here are some details for ya!
I wanted to do something to celebrate my 28th birthday this year, and thought a blog hop would be the perfect blog party! With the help of some fabulously talented ladies, we're bringing our fun to you. This weekend, everyone will be featuring a "28" themed project on their blog. So hop around and be sure to comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win the grand prize!!
What's the grand prize?!
A $28* gift voucher to the online retailer of your choice. Personally, I'd have a hard time deciding between Studio Calico, Two Peas in a Bucket or Simon Says Stamps. But it's not for me to worry about, it's for one of you!
To win, comment on each of the blogs, then make your way back here and comment again to let me know you left some love on them all. You have until 8:00pm EST Sunday, 30 September to comment back here for a chance to win.
So on to my portion of the blog hop....
Just a lil about me
My name is Jamie Leija and I just turned 28 yesterday :) [ALSO, THIS IS MY 400TH BLOG POST!!!] I'm a diehard scrapbooker and card maker. I also just became a small business owner, in the sense that I launched my Etsy card store earlier this week!! Beyond paper crafting, my absolute favorite thing to do in the world is travel. I've been to 25+ countries and always devising ways to travel to more. I have a sweet boyfriend and the most adorable nephew, completely rad parents and an Irish twin brother! That's a little about me.
My 28 Project
This year I decided to do a 28 things page. I captured 28 facts about me at 28; where I live, what I do, what my favorites are. I'm excited to do this again next year to see if any of them have changed.
I had fun playing with products on this page, basically I heaped some beautiful on a layout. The color scheme came from the two Amy Tangerine yo-yo's and spiraled from there. I threw in some Kelly Purkey stamps, Crate Paper Story Teller stickers, Mister Huey, neon tape, Thickers, stickers, jewels and almost as an after thought, my picture. The colors went so well with the scarf I nearly covered up ;)
Who's next? And also the order in case you get lost:

And that's that! Don't forget to comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win! I don't know about you, but I'm excited to see the other "28" projects.
Happy Hopping yall!!
cheers & besos,
*Really, it's a $30 gift voucher but that's not as fun to say as $28 for the 28th blog hop on September 28!!
