Hippity Hoppity Blog Hop




Sassy Lil Sketches, Cuttlebug Spot, Scrap Fit, Crop Suey, and ScrapTiffany are all in a blog hop this weekend. The blog starts at Sassy Lil Sketches (http://sassylilsketches.blogspot.com/). Sassy Lil Sketches provided the sketch to follow. I kinda changed it up a bit! They're having a Recipe Challenge and each stop on the blog hop has a challenge for your LO! I decided to do a 2-pager because it wouldn't have looked right as just one page without all pics of the statue! I used Basic Grey Oliver Collection paper for this LO. The first page I'm also going to use as a Patriotic Colors Challenge for Scrapbook Challenges (http://scrapbookchallenges.ning.com/)! I did a lot of research on this LO of Zebulon Baird Vance. He was the "most beloved political figure in North Carolina's history." (http://www.phigam.org/netcommunity/page.aspx?pid=1193) The statue is on the South East lawn of the State House in Raleigh, NC. I took these pictures June 10, 2005 after my dad's second wedding to Tammy, my stepmom. I was visiting Emily and Scott that weekend and we did some sight-seeing downtown Raleigh! The journaling on the first page is the Historical Marker Transcription found on http://www.markeroni.com/catalog/display.php?code=NC_MSM_0004. I didn't know all this information when I took the pictures! I'm glad I did research on this man for this LO! I learned something new just scrappin'! He was a true Veteran/ political figure! How fitting for Veteran's Day! Happy Hoppin'! :)
