Scrap that Baby blog hop

Welcome to the Scrap that Baby's Sweet Summertime blog hop!!

Thank you so much for hopping along on our first ever blog hop!

If you didn't come from Traceys blog or you popped upon this blog and didn't realize we were blog hopping and you'd like to join in, you can go to Scrap That Baby and start the HOP! You will need to comment on ALL of the blogs to be eligible for the grand prizes listed on the main site. ! Plus so many of our awesome designers are giving away a prize on their blogs as well. You will not want to miss out. There are MANY MANY chances to win!

Our theme for this blog hop is SWEET SUMMERTIME!! The other members of our design team will also be sharing fantastic summer projects, stories, tips or ideas for keeping cool and having fun in the summer with a baby along.

Here's a layout about what I like to do with my three favourite boys in Summer.

We like to go to our favourite shady park near the beach. The boys big and small like to play in the playground before stopping to eat a delicious picnic and Mum likes to take LOTS of photos.
Then its off for more play time before we head home. The boys are usually exhausted and have a nap on the way home, the perfect end to a perfect day and of course we always remember to slip, slop, slap and drink lots of water because the summers here in Australia can be HOT! but we wouldn't change it for the world.

If your a regular here you'd know I love close ups so here's a few.

I even used some of my Lil' Red Rocket comic/felt rounds on this page, they just seemed to fit.

OK so, our blog hop runs from today, August 18th (19th in Aus) until August 22nd(23rd in Aus) . Invite your friends to play for extra entries and remember that you must comment on all the blogs for a chance at the main prize
The Scrap that Baby blog will be drawing for the main prizes on Wednesday August 25th! .

The next stop on the blog hop is........ Kellys Blog.

Oh and before you head off to Kellys blog, here is my little prize. Some goodies from my Etsy shop Lil' Red Rocket.
So for a chance to win these sweet bottle tops, fabric buttons and a few little extra surprises not pictured here. OK so to win my prize you'll need to be or become a follower of my blog and dont forget to let me know in your comments.
Ill draw the winner at the end of the blog hop. Its open to Aussie and international bloggers, so thanks for joining in.
Now its off to Kellys blog. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your hop. TFL.
