Welcome to the Scrapbook Page Blog Hop. This month is for Birthday Celebration scrapbook pages.

What is a celebration? According to the dictionary, a celebration is an action of marking one’s pleasure at an important event or occasion by engaging in enjoyable, typically social, activity. Celebrations actually boost our well-being — and this is true for major milestones and daily wins alike. One of the main reasons celebrating is so important is because it reflects an overall attitude of gratitude. Enjoy what we have, instead of focusing on what we don’t have or only on what we want in the future.

So, with that in mind, I have created a couple of birthday celebration 8″ x 8″ scrapbook pages. I will include the list of Stampin’ Up! products, some measurements, and a brief description of the techniques used.
