Bucket List Blog Hop

Welcome to the Bucket List Blog Hop.  When I saw this, I knew I wanted to be part of it.  I have so many things on my bucket list that I want to accomplish before I die and this would make me actually put some of them down on paper - or scrapbook them. 

There are a few celebrations that we are celebrating along the way too.  Michelle from www.craftychelle.blogspot.com is celebrating her 18th birthday!  I can still remember my 18th birthday, I hope Michelle has a spectacular day.  If you would like to start the blog hop from the beginning, please start at Michelle's blog.  If you are here from Gill, who is celebrating her 11th anniversay!! you are in the right place.

I decided to do a scrapbook page for my first project.  I HAVE to go to Alaska.  I have an awesome friend there.  Linda and her husband Chris moved to Alaska 3 years ago and they make it sound so wonderful.  They both are adventerous spirits and are living life to the fullest.  I would love to experience just some of the wonderful things they have experienced.




For the clipboard I used Fabulous Finds and cut it out at 8 inches, I used misc. stamps from Studio G around the pictures and clipboard.  Hope you like it.

Your next stop is going to be Inga.  Here is a list of everyone in the hop along with who is celebrating a birthday or an anniversary.

So that's what a Bucket list is...I guess I need to make one. Great Job, Linda...it's nice to have a "personal" scrapbook that tells about your hopes, dreams and life in general. A real gift to pass down to the generations. Hmmmm, I think I will need to do that to include my poetry and short stories...oh you've inspired me....gotta get to the studio!!!!
