Welcome to the Mystical Scrapbooks Greetings blog hop!! We are only have very small hop right now to see how we go and later on we will plan a very special blog with many more participants. Thank you so very much for hopping along on our first ever blog hop!

If you didn’t come from Donna Cope's blog or you popped upon this blog and didn’t realise we were blog hopping you need to go to Mystical Scrapbooks and start the HOP! You will need to comment on ALL of the blogs to be eligible for the prize. Plus some of our awesome designers are giving away a prize on their blogs as well. You will not want to miss out on the prize.

Our theme for this blog hop is Greetings, as it is our way to say hello to our new Design Team Member Anita Bownds and a sad farewell to Trudie Campbell who has stood down from the Design Team. The members of our Design Team will all be sharing some fantastic Greeting projects, stories, tips or ideas all based upon the theme.

Now I, Tracey Campbell will share my Greetings with you.

Hola, Li-ho, Sanibonani, Privet! iakwe, selamat datang, ohayoou (gozaimasu), namaste, salut or in other words hello. Thank you for dropping by. Let me start with a layout that I created just for this blog hop, a layout about Paige my youngest daughter poping in and out from underneath a log and shouting "Hi There!" I took the photo while we were down south camping and she fell in love with this log, it was huge and she enjoyed climbing underneath it very much....I think most of all she loved shouting out.

Hello There

Greetings in our family are never quiet, so there was no chance of me letting Trudie slip away from the Design Team without some sort of special good-bye. So here we are....Trudie I just wanted to let you know that your layouts that you created during your time at Mystical have been very inspiration and I have loved seeing a glimpse into your life. Thank-you.

Anita, welcome to the team. I am looking forward to setting challenges with you and to getting to know you some more through your scrapping and chatting on the forum.

I pulled out some old albums of mine, just to see if I had scrapped anymore layouts about Greetings over the years....I only managed to get through two albums before I had pulled out three other layouts that I thought I would share. You will see how my style has changed over the years....and these layouts are only a few years old.

Sweet Cuddles

This layout is about how Bronte greeted her friend after only a few hours a good hello with a hug.

Welcome Home

A layout I did just after Paige got home from the hospital when she was born.

Meeting Great Grandma

This one is of Bronte meeting her Great Grandma for the very first time. A very sweet memory for her to cherish.

Well if you have got this far then please take the time to leave a comment and I will randomly pick one of you to get a great RAK. The RAK that I am giving away is a bit different. I recently got a Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine and I just love to play with it and cut out all sorts of different shapes and title.....well as my RAK to you I will give you some of my Silhouette Credit and let you pick 10 items from the Cameo store, which I will cut out of cardstock or paper and send to you. To do this we will have to change e-mail address so that you can let me know what shapes/words you want. And just so you can see what I am talking about here is a link to the Cameo Store. There is all sorts of yummy cuts there.

Our blog hop runs from today, November 1st until Sunday the 11th November. Invite your Friends to play along. You must comment on all the blogs for a chance at the Prize. The Winner will be announced at Mystical Scrapbooks on the 12th November!

This is the last stop on the blog hop...see we told you that it was just a small hop. But you know what they say - good things come in small packages, so hopefully you all enjoyed our first ever hop. We thank you for playing along and would love to see you at Mystical Scrapbooks some time.

If you are looking for some scrapping inspiration on the weekend don't forget to come back to Mystical Scrapbooks for our Monthly Cybercrop. This month the theme is Racy – in honour of the Melbourne Cup. 

Thank you for playing along with our first and smallest Blog Hop, we hope that you had fun and will be back to join in again.
