Happy Birthday Creative Scrappers!

Hello Creative Scrappers!

It's hard for me to believe that it's been exactly 6 years since I placed a visitor counter on this blog! Today, 6 Years later we have over 2.8 MILLION visitors!!! I never in a million years would have imaged such a great response to my new sketch blog and I am so thankful that you came to participate and gave us great feedback!

I'd like to take the time today to say THANK YOU!
To ALL of you who have made Creative Scrappers a fun and fabulous place to be Inspired and get Creative!

A Special Thank You goes out to our many design team members, guest designers and we can't forget our sketch designers too! Thank you all for being part of this journey with me and i hope you continue to share your layouts and ideas with us as we move forward for another great year.

We  will have our Birthday Bash celebrations including a Design Team Blog Hop tomorrow and will continue with the festivities all day. Most of the giveaways will be done on facebook but a few will be done here on our blog. I  Hope you have time to participate  and if you don't have time to play please come in and say HI!

PS : If you like to bake, you might want to bake a cake ;-) You'll have a chance to win a Super Awesome box filled with Jillibean Soup! I'll post more details tomorrow morning.

Happy Birthday Creative Scrappers !

Sketch #266 Featured Layout

Hi, everyone!  Missy here today.  I had a hard time choosing just one layout to feature!  There are so many amazing pages uploaded for our latest sketch.  This layout by Mandalika really jumped out at me.  I just love thee color combination and how it matches perfectly with the gorgeous peacock photo!  I love all the wooden feather pieces as well as the flair she used.  Just gorgeous! Thanks so much for linking up! :)

Congrats on being our Featured Layout today!  Be sure to add this badge to your blog.  We just LOVE what you created!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and stay tuned first thing tomorrow for our awesome Birthday Bash Blog Hop!

Have a great day!
