Scrappers Delight Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Summer Vacation Blog Hop! Everyone is welcome to participate and we have candy to give away. You have a chance of winning candy by following our blog hop and collecting the letters from the Scrapbooking Elements along the way. Be careful, some blogs may have 2 letters. Once you reach the last blog and have collected all the letters, unscramble the letters to reveal a well known Summer Theme Song. If you wish to be entered into the contest, make sure to post your answers on the main blog page at

You should have arrived here from Danielle's blog (, if not please start at the beginning at as we don't want you to miss any letters, and seeing our projects.

I made a summer card for my cousin's birthday. She is in college at Chico, California and one of the favorite summer activities there is floating on the river. Hey I did it when I went to college there, it's fun. I used an image from Michelle Perkett Studio (

Our hop will close on July 8 and the winners will be announced on July 11. Be sure to check out Scrappers Delight Group at as we have swaps, challenges and give aways through out the year. Sign up and enjoy all the fun. When you are ready, hop over to Trisha's blog to continue the fun.

My hint is my letter will remain in its place when you're unscrambling the letters.

Daffodil Garden

My dad and I planted about 300 Daffodil bulbs last November. I got to make a sign for my garden. My dad showed me how to cut the metal, it was my first time using the torch thing. I had goggles on and the torch in one hand and all I could think of was when I was a little kid watching my dad weld. I would sit on the stool and wear one of his hats that covered my eyes so I could watch him and wondered if I would ever like to weld. Well, years later, here I was in his shop trying to cut a sign. It's lopsided, but hey it was the first time. The daffodils were very pretty.
