LM #152 - Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!

Longer post than normal, but be sure to read to the end, the Grand Prize information is waiting down there!

Hi everyone!! It is PARTY time at Lasting Memories today! We're celebrating my special day with a "Scavenger Hunt Birthday Hop"! Tmw is my 40th birthday and what better way to celebrate than to have a hop in blogland! Before we get started, you better get yourself a pen and paper because you're going to need it! There are 10 blogs in the hop and each person has chosen an element to use on her layout. Your job is to find all 10 elements, write them down and choose FIVE to include in your layout! Be sure to keep your eyes open because we have sponsors as well as DT members giving goodies away. You may have to do a little something more for the DT candy, so be sure to read every post! Sound like fun?? We think so!!! Ok, lets get to it! You should have arrived here from Lasting Memories which is your starting point and where you'll find the master hop list.

For my 2 page layout today, I chose chipboard for my element (write that down! don't forget!)
