Today we are beginning the 1st Birthday Celebration for my digi-scrap home,! It's hard to believe that its been an entire year already since we first opened up our little shop. But look how we've grown!

Well - you're here on your 3rd stop on the Birthday Blog Train. If you're following the train, you just came from Andrea's blog and now you've arrived here in Utah!

At each stop on our Birthday Blog train we'll be telling you about a birthday tradition that we enjoy! One thing my family does for birthdays is to sing 'Happy Birthday' in what has become known as "Rodee-style" (Rodee is my maiden name). What is "Rodee-style" you ask? Well - no one in the Rodee family is particularly talented in the singing department, so instead of struggling through an akward attempt at singing nicely, we just started singing "Happy Birthday" in the most horrible off key bizarre way possible. It's pretty awful sounding but ALWAYS cracks up the birthday boy or girl. We've been doing it for YEARS. I can't even remember when it started, but its a lot of fun! It just gets more awful sounding, louder, and crazier as the years go by. We used to not sing Rodee-style in front of anyone that wasn't family, but in the last year a few 'out-siders' have witnessed "Rodee-style" and we even sang it in a RESTAURANT this summer for Josh's birthday! THAT WAS SO EMBARRASSING AND TOTALLY NOT MY IDEA!!!!

Ok - enough about my goofy family and our random traditions!! On to what you came here for - your FREEBIE!

At each stop along the blog train you'll be picking up more brag book pages AND some other little goodies too. This brag book was created by ScrapMatters' huge new collab kit "You Say Its Your Birthday", which is FREE with a $10 purchase in the SM store now through Monday! It's ENORMOUS, and so versatile. I'd DEFINITELY pick it up if I were you.

Here is the page I created with it! This is my little nephew at his first birthday party.
