GO GREEN! Paper Variety's first BLOG HOP! :)

Good  morning! Welcome to the first PAPER VARIETY blog hop! We are so excited to announce this week's color challenge, generous prize and sponsor, share our projects with you and offer some BLOG CANDY for hopping today. We have some FABULOUS designers at TPV and want to showcase their personal blogs this week.

If you came here from Abby's blog, you are in the RIGHT place :) If not, then stop back at THE PAPER VARIETY to get started from the beginning and see a list of all the links if you get lost along the way. You don't want to miss a thing! :)

Our challenge this week is a COLOR challenge in honor of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday :)


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 to The 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 the 
layout I made for this week's challenge.


I used sketch 106 from The Scrappiest.




Before our wedding, my hubby went golfing with three of his best friends since grade school! And like a good husband-to-be, he set up the camera to take a picture of the 4 of them! A scrappy wife is a happy wife, I say. LOL!


Aren't the handsome?! You can click the picture for a larger view. I used papers from Graphic 45's "Proper Gentlemen" collection. Is the title too corny for a guy page?! lol.


At least it wasn't "Going GREEN, on the GREEN".

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! It wouldn't be a hop without some BLOG CANDY :)

Emma, from My Creative Time, was so super sweet in sponsoring my blog today! I just love her blog, videos, and style. She inspired me buy my first Peachy Keen Stamps! And now, she makes her own. I have 2 sets and LOVE them. She is offering one of her original releases - "I  Believe in Leprechauns".



Pretty fitting for our GREEN challenge, no?

Thanks so much Emma! Be sure to stop by her PRODUCTS PAGE to see all the sets she has to offer.

Please become a follower and leave a comment below to win! You do not need to enter the challenge to win blog candy.

However, you ARE going to want to hop to the next design team member to see their GREEN

Click HERE to go to AMY'S BLOG! ;)

We are looking forward to seeing YOUR green at THE PAPER VARIETY, too!  Remember to link up before TUESDAY at noon for a chance to win the GRAND PRIZE! :)


Thanks SO much for joining in our hop! 
See, it IS easy being green :)


Be sure to tell your friends about our hop, because when The Paper Variety reaches 500 followers, we're giving away another prize! :)

Have a GREAT day!
