SOC BLOG HOP!!

 
HAPPY FRIDAY!! Hey everybody, thanks for joining us for the SOC "Turnt Up for 10" blog hop!
I'm not sure how long I've been a part of the SOC community, but it's AT LEAST been 6 years.  I came across the SOC blog probably a year after I started scrapbooking (8 yrs ago) and I was looking for women of color who scrapbook since it really wasn't saturated in the market/publications.  Google search and VOILA!  Found them! So, they have turned 10 this year-10 years of sharing life, memories, crafting and more! And no, you don't have to be a woman of color to participate, you just gotta love crafting and art :):):):)
The  hop actually started at the SOC BLOG HERE... and then you should've hopped over to me!
SINCE THE SOC BLOG HOP IS now 10, our blog hop is all about celebrations and from 10 bloggers!!  Normally I would scrap all the celebrating I do with the bff1 & bff2, but I decided ya'll get to see that all the time, so I decided to scrap about something that was a big deal for me personally since I really want to try to get serious about some weight loss.  Did my first 5K 2 weeks ago-THE COLOR RUN and it was so much fun! 





Next on the blog hop is the sweet CANDY FORD but before you go, how about some blog candy???!!  One lucky crafter will receive an RAK from me-

all you have to do is comment on this post and tell me YOUR favorite celebration/memory you celebrated (doesn't have to be holiday related)** I will pick a winner on lucky 13th!!!

Congratulations on your 5k and for deciding to be healthy. Good for you. I know it's so hard, I struggle too but if you concentrate on just the healthy part everything else will follow. My favorite memory is vacationing with friends and all our kids. Thanks for the chance to win.

I am a sucker for a colorful layout and yours is over the top! Beautiful! And Congratulations on completing the race -- your smile says it all. My favorite celebration memory is all the family holidays growing up where I now appreciate how much WORK my mother put in to make them so special for us -- the food, the decorations, etc.

Debra Blake said...

Congrats on the race!! Love the layout! One of my most recent cherished memories is my first NY trip I took this summer with my youngest daughter! We had a ball!

LM Friday said...

That's awesome you did a 5k, my sister does that too. She makes me feel so proud of her, so congrats. That's a big deal!! Oh and thanks for a chance to win the stamps! Turn down for what!

Quite the achievement on the color run, I want to do the next one!

My celebration was 12 years of marriage to a God loving man...finally, equally yoked! ❤️

Susan D said...

Congrats girlfriend...keep doing your thing! Awesome LO. My celebration was when I turned 50...thank God for blessing me each and every day.

Suzanne Johnson said...

I am in awe of your achievement! I've never been a runner - although I tried! How do I choose one favorite celebration...there have been so many wonderful ones! I will say my wedding - I never thought I would find a man as wonderful as my husband, or someone so right for me.

Treva said...

Congrats on completing the 5k and cute LO documenting your success, tfs ! The best events that I usually enjoy and celebrate are centered around my children!

NC Peach said...

Great LO and congrats on your first 5K! I want to run one the Electric Run here, but need to start working out again...As for my memorable events, it usually for my family's birthdays! Time to find something for myself, huh?

Sissosaved said...

Congratz,on your first 5K! I drive to the mailbox, so you are an inspiration to me. I may start walking more. My most memorable event was giving birth to a girl. All my friends and sisterinlaws were pregnant within 3-6 months of each other and they all had girls and I gave birth to the only boy out 7 of us.
