Good morning everyone and welcome to Scrapbookaholic By Abby and to the Explosions Everywhere Blog Hop!!! I was invited to be part of this hop by Erika and Zeni! Thank You ladies for having me!! If you came here from the talented Liz, then you are headed on the right direction! but if you happen to just be visiting please make sure you start this hop with Erika!!!

We were asked to create an explosion box! I had done one before and it turned out..... hmmm just ok. So, this is just my second attempt at these! Hope you like it!! All patterned paper is Echo Park. Stamp sentiment is from My Creative Time.





There are some awesome prices to be won!!! Scrapbook Steals has generously donated a gift basket with a retail value of $100!!!! Along with this, Kich N Bleus Designs will give the grand prize winner their choice of a digi collection. In order to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on every blog!! 3 random names will be chosen from each blog and then placed in a pull for the grand prize.
