Welcome To the Cross Country Road Trip Blog Hoppers! So happy you have joined us. Hope you’re having a great National Scrapbook Day.

We are asking you to create a layout (all paper, all digital, or hybrid) about a trip to anywhere in the 50 United States to be entered in a drawing for a prize. Check out all the blogs and you'll get a surprise half way through the hop. Some bloggers will run their own separate drawings on each of their blogs, so don't forget to leave a comment.

Once you've visited all the blogs and have created your layout, return to to post your layout. The last day for layouts is May 15th at 11:59pm.

The grand prize drawing is My Mind's Eye LUSH minibook with papers and Unleashing The Creative Child Within You by Avital of Creativity Prompt, one of the participating bloggers.

Here’s my layout to celebrate our journey.
