AAM Sweet Spring Blog Hop



Welcome to the AAM Sweet Spring Blog Hop! The blog hop will officially go live on April 7th and will run through April 21st.

I'm so excited to share with you two layouts that I created for this week's challenge- Self Improvement (Your biggest flaw)
I don't really like the word flaw so I took a bit of a different route!!





The first layout is about the serious problem I have with list making and planning. If I sit still for too long, my mind starts wandering and I have to make a list. I made to-do lists for homework, scrapbooking, and work. I jot down ideas and sketch out designs for layouts. I hardly go anywhere without my lists and I feel lost without them. It's kind of an addiction.

The second layout is about my current struggle to learn portion control. I love food and I love to eat, but I'm trying to learn when to push away from the table and say no.





I will be offering a prize on April 21st at the end of the blog hop here is how to enter:
Each person can receive up to 8 entries.
One comment per person= 1 entry
Become a follower of my blog= 2 entries
Complete the AAM challenge (must be a new project) and link it up here by April 20th = 5 entries

I will do this old school and have someone draw a name out of a hat on April 21st! The winner will receive a $10.00 gift card to Two Peas in a Bucket. (I know it's not a lot, but I'm a poor student!) Make sure you leave me a good way to contact you if you don't post a comment with a blogger account.

If you didn't start from the AAM blog, please go back there for official instructions on how to put your name in the hat for a fabulous prize from Treasury of Memories.

From here, you should head over to our fearless leader Melissa's blog!
