Shop Hoppin' Through So Cal!

So lots of things have been keeping me busy lately:
  1. I've been working on some new classes.
  2. I've been asked to create a few custom scrapbooks for different people. 
  3. I tried out for a design team (didn't make it but a great experience nonetheless!).
  4. Shop Hopping!
What is Shop Hopping you ask? The Southern California Shop Hop is a two week event that takes place once a year and involves 30-40 scrapbook stores from Ventura County down to San Diego. You purchase a passport and you get a stamp from each store and depending on how many store you visit, you are entered into different raffles for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

The Shop Hop always has a theme and this years theme was travel. Each participating store had a destination and a make and take related to that destination. Here are some of my favorites.

Scrapbook Buddies in Temple City

Scrapbookland in Hacienda Heights

Memory Lane Scrapbooking in Los Alamitos

Pages From the Heart in Burbank (Yes even Grandma got in on the action!)

A to Z Scrapbooking in Torrance (I had to drag the hubby to at least one store...)

Michelle and I at Collective Journey in Redlands

Out of the 39 stores participating in this year's Shop Hop I made it to 21. Some brave souls made it to all 39! Fingers crossed I win a prize this year!

Special thanks to my friends, mom, grandma, and husband for being good sports about all of this. You guys rock!
