Oh Baby! Blog Hop - Day 1


Welcome to the Oh Baby! Blog Hop hosted by yours truly! If you've stopped by my blog today for the hop, then you're in for a treat! Since this is your first stop, make sure you hop along with all of the rest of the blogs and see all of our fabulous Baby themed projects! You will also have a chance to win lots of blog candy along the way! This is a very large hop, so you have 3 days to check out all of the projects! This hop runs from August 4-6, so make sure you check back for new projects each day!

This hop is being sponsored by PSA Essentials. Libby has been so sweet to donate some blog candy for this hop and she's also joining us as a stop on the hop! If you aren't familiar with PSA, they manufacture self-inking custom stamps and have a variety of styles and ways to personalize. Their stamps come ready to go, with black ink already assembled so you can start stamping right away. And custom stamps are a great way to add personalization to your projects!!! I always add my "Create Serendipity" to the backs of my albums so everyone knows where it came from. :-)

Now on to my baby themed project for today:

For each day of the hop I will be posting a Baby Boy and Baby girl project.


For today's projects, I made 2 baby themed toilet paper roll albums. Each of these is made from 4 toilet paper rolls that have been painted with coordinating colors.

Here's a close up of each album:



If you are interested in making your own Toilet Paper Roll Album, check out THIS POST for a tutorial!

Are you ready for some blog candy?

PSA Essentials has been so kind to donate 2 of their baby themed stamp sets (pictured below), 1 PSA Essentials personalized stamp, and 2 inks. It's a $85 retail value!


To win you must do the following:
1. Follow the PSA Essentials blog HERE (1 entry)
2. Become a fan of PSA Essentials on Facebook HERE, tell them Emily sent you from the blog hop :-) (1 entry)
3. Leave a separate comment here for each entry
4. Make sure you visit all of the blogs in the hop and leave comments, this isn't necessary to win the prize, but everyone worked really hard on their projects and would love some comment love :-)

Now hop along to Jen's blog and see what she has made for today!

Apparently my other comment has been eaten!! I tried to be a follower of PSA, but all I could see was "follow on pinterst" and I'm not on pinterest. Usually I'm able to follow with Google friend, but couldn't find that there. Don't know if blogspot has hiccups again. I was able to subscribe by email so I hope that works.
