The Paper Variety-Blog Hop

Hi!! Today is the first Paper Variety Blog Hop!!!! I'm so excited to announce this week's color challenge, the great prize and the beautiful projects that the design team would made for your inspiration!!! and of course, some blog candy for hopping today!!!
If you came from MINDY'S BLOG you're in the correct place.  If not, head back to THE PAPER VARIETY to get started from the beginning. You don't want to miss a thing!!




This week is a color challenge.

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Your Scrapbook Stash!

In order to win this GRAND PRIZE you need to submit your own GREEN project toThe Paper Variety by Tuesday at NOON. If you submit before Sunday evening, you have a chance to have your blog featured on TPV! ;)

To get you inspired, I want to share with you....

MY PAGE.........

I made this page about my daughter's birthday.  My husband took this photo the day we left the hospital.  My mom bought this dress for Paola, she looked like a doll.
I embossed the paper with the Stamping up Embossing folders.





It wouldn't be a hop without some Blog Candy!!!



Please become a follower and leave a comment  below to win this certified card from Scrapbook.com,  I'm going to randomly give away this certified card next Tuesday! You do not need to enter the challenge to xwin blog candy.

However, you are going to want to hop to the next design team member to see their GREEN! 
And now for the fabulous PATTI, stop by her blog!
Thanks for stopping by and for the lovely comments. Until next time!
HUGS!!!
Marilyn
