It's Blog Train Time - Two Heading into this Station!

First off, we have the Digi Scraps Drive In Progressive Blog Hop Challenge to kick of the month long Birthday Bash at the Drive In.

Here is how it works:
1.  follow our Progressive Blog Hop, picking up each mini along the way.
2.  Create a layout using at least one piece from each mini (more if you wish)
3.  Upload your LO to our Birthday Bash gallery, and link it back to the Progressive Blog Hop Challenge thread.

When you complete this challenge, you will receive a loot bag that coordinates with the blog hop minis.

 But don't stop there! DSDI will be hosting challenges and events all month long. You can pick up several more loot bags, and have a huge celebration themed mega kit when the month is done. DSDI will be posting new challenges all month, so keep your eyes on the Birthday Bash forum.
