SEM - A New Chapter Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop! We have some new DT members and we're excited to welcome them to the team. I'm also a little sad to see a few talented ladies leaving us and I wish them all the best!

This blog hop is all about a new chapter, a new beginning. I created a layout about a new beginning we recently celebrated: my son's Bar Mitzvah. This marks a new stage in his life, turning from a boy to a man. We celebrated this special day in a big party with all our family and friends. In honor of this special occasion I created a special album with photos of my son in different ages. Each page also had space for someone to write a blessing or some words of wisdom. This is the cover of the album: 13 YEARS OF MAGIC.

You are invited to create a layout or mixed media project that represents a new chapter in your life. Whether you have already begun this journey or you are thinking about it, we want to know about it. So go ahead and create this special project and don't forget to link it up to SEM before October 5th, 11:59 PDT!
