Stampin' Buds Blog Hop for December 2015

Hi and welcome to my blog, I'm Janice Wilson and One Scraptastic Grandma is the name of my blog.  My eldest Grandson named it for me.  If you are following the Stampin' Bud's Blog Hop, you came from Leesa Bartu's Blog.  I hope you enjoyed her beautiful artwork.

Not sure what a blog hop is?
Well let me explain it.
A group of people get together and decide what they want to share, a certain Paper pack. stamp set, scrapbook layout, cards or anything really.  Then all the people participating create their own blog post and share what they made and then provide the visitors a link to go to the next blog in the list, they hop from one blog to the other so to speak.  They sometimes provide a list of participating blogs so if you get lost you can go back and start over.  You get to see how they all use the same Paper, stamps ect. in different ways. Giving you inspiration to create your own projects.

On my blog, One Scraptastic Grandma, I try to share some type of paper craft with you as often as possible.  I have other hobbies that sometimes takes more of my time, but are well worth it.  I volunteer at my local VFW and I'm an Auxiliary Life member. I help make lap Quilts and neck pillows and we take them to the Portland VA Hospital. I'll have a post on that latter this month.  Right now we are getting ready to take a load on Wednesday for their Christmas party on the 16th.  They are always looking for volunteers, so if you have some spare time and want to volunteer, call the Portland VA Hospital and ask for Jean Bettencourt in Volunteer Services, she will be able to tell you all about how you can help.  Or contact your local VFW Auxiliary and ask if you can help them. I know we welcome all the help we can get at the Three Rivers VFW Post 1324 in Oregon City.
