Celebrate Sistahood Blog Hop

In honor of Scraps of Color's 7th Anniversary, myself along with some talented papercrafters, have teamed up to honor and celebrate sistahood and the wonderful women in our lives who make us laugh, cry, shout, scream, play, live.  We honor through our creativity and sharing our stories during this blog hop. Each sistah blogger will inspire you with her creativity and will also be offering up some blog candy! What is blog candy you ask?  It's a giveaway!  So sit back and get ready to be inspired with the Celebrate Sistahood Blog Hop.

Now for the project:
I decided to make a layout of me scrapping with my friend Erica.  I have been doing arts and crafts since forever and Erica sat on the sidelines contending that she never thought she could do 'artsy stuff'.  Yeah right! LOL.  Well, I was deep into flower arranging and making wedding favors many years ago when none other than Erica invited me to a $5.00 crop (ahhhh those were the days-lol).  That crop was amazing!  I never looked back, I was hooked on the 'new way' to scrapbook.  Today I rarely do wedding favors and other crafts.  I was like:"... wow, what is a sizzix!"  "You mean there is a machine that does that...I am still using stencils and scissors." (LOL)  I love Erica just because, but now I have a special place for her in my heart for introducing me to a modern way to scrapbook.  We scrapbook and go to craft conventions together whenever we can.   She is a spectacular crafter and I get to experience all her scrappy goodness!  In addition to being spiritual sistahs, we are also scrap buddies.  Love this friendship!
