Are you addicted to Instagram yet? I know I am. Nearly 500 photos of mine would vouch for that! I carry my phone everywhere of course, which just makes it so easy to take photos anywhere, anytime. Instagram allows me to instantly edit and upload them on the go. And it also allows me to connect with other Instagrammers and get an insight into their daily lives.
So when I saw one of my Instagram buddies Jessy Christopher was organising another one of her highly successful Instagram Blog Hop's I knew I wanted to join in the fun!
I print out loads of my Instagram photos to use on my layouts these days. In fact I would say at least 75% of my photos for scrapping are Instagram pics.
Given this is a "Summer" Blog Hop (and it's absolutely freezing for me down here in Australia) I wanted to share a recent page which is all about the sunshine and summer memories.
I'm starting to feel warmer already!
And because all Blog Hop's should end with a prize, here's what I'm offering to one lucky hopper today. Full of fun and colour this prize includes everything you see here - chipboard, buttons, WASHI TAPE (!) and more. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post letting me know if you Instagram or not. If you would like to sign up to follow my blog you can see the link in the sidebar, or check out my Instagram feed (my user name is 'natalieelph') that would be totally cool. If you let me know I'll enter your name into the draw a second time.
Here's a list of the other stops on the Blog Hop today. You can see the participants name on the left, followed by their Instagram username, then their blog address.
The blog hop is open until June 17th at 11:59pm PST (which is almost 8am on the 18th for us Aussies in Victoria) at which point I will draw a winner for my Prize and post it here.
