It's a Spring Blog Hop!!!

Are you ready to hop on down the Bunny Trail?  Of course you are--that's why you're here--to get this "HOP" started!  So let's begin...

The Tellen's Place Divas have been hard at work, designing projects for the new images that you will also see posted at the Tellen's Place Designs store on Friday. These are special images for Easter and will be available for purchase until April 10th. You will find Edward and Ally all ready for this special day along with Jessica and a few other friends as they color their eggs and find them later.

Here's my Spring/Easter LO that I've done of my Temple when she was just 18 months--she's 7 yrs old now and growing up way too quickly for me!
By the way, that lovely lady holding the bunny and bowl of Easter treats is Alaina!

Our blog hop starts today (3/24) and will end on 3/26). One winner will have a choice of five of the TP images used by the designers for this special blog hop. There will be more than five images to choose from though--how cool is that?

Oh...I almost forgot to tell you - we have another fun part of this blog hop - a scavenger hunt!  That's right--on each Designer's blog, there is a secret [highlighted] word and you'll only need to remember each Designer's word from her blog and send an e-mail to Terry ( with the correct word for each person. You know what, the winner will get a prize--go and check out Tellen's Place for a picture of the prize!

So, two things to remember: (1) a prize to the winner just for hopping and leaving a comment on each blog, including Tellen's Place and (2) compile a list of the correct words you find highlighted on each Designer's blog and e-mail that list to Terry to win a fabulous prize.

Now, if you arrived here from Lyn's Blog, then you are on the right track. If not, please start from the beginning at Tellen's Place - that way you won't miss any of the scavenger hunt words or a chance for that second prize!  To help you, here's the order of the blog hop:
  1. Tellen's Place
  2. Alicia
  3. Mia
  4. Joyce
  5. Lyn
  6. Me!
  7. Pam
  8. Terry
Thanks so much for Hopping by and a Happy Easter to you all!

Two New Blog Awards

I am truly humbled by my fellow blog sisters' thoughts of me.  I've been blogging for just a year and my connections with the women I've befriended and who've befriended me have just been incredible!  Nita is a new friend with a good heart, and she's extended to me a Beautiful Blogger Award.

Terry is a lovely friend, who I also have the good fortune of serving on her Tellen's Place and Tellen's Place Designs design teams, and she's passed on to me a Sunshine Award.

Ladies, thank you so much!

Happy Scrapping!

A Couple of Projects to Share

This was a layout that I did from a Practical Scrappers Sketch Friday sketch that I did a couple of weeks ago that I forgot to post.

Here is the sketch by our Heidi!
And here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I love these papers from my Little Red Scrapbook monthly kit.  These papers are by Origins and they are so beautiful in person!

Some closeups:

Last week's Practical Scrappers' Challenge was Chipboard.  I decided to make this chipboard mini album for my niece, Nikki who is having her 2nd child!

I really enjoyed making this for my niece and she was surprised and happy for the gift!  I hope to make more albums for her to document her pregnancy.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping!

Welcome to my new Blog!!!

Well, it's my old Blog but with a new design!!!  This beautiful new design was designed by Leelou Designs, and I think she did a fabulous job!  Why the new design, because it is my Blog Birthday!  I am 1 year old today--yay!!!  When I started blogging a year ago, I had no idea what I was doing.  I have learned a lot over the past year and I have made some wonderful friends through this medium as well.  So I wanted to celebrate by giving you all a really sunny place to visit!  I hope you enjoy my new blog design as much as I am enjoying it.

PS:  As I just got it this morning, please bear with me while I tweak it to get it just right.
Happy Scrapping!

It's Thursday and I'm Up!

This week at Practical Scrappers, it was all about chalk or ink!  I decided to do chalk.  I've had these word and flower stencils for ages--I actually forgot I had them, and that is why I so like Practical Scrappers because I find I use tools and supplies that I already have much more often!  I should be asleep right now, so I'm just going to post my layout and get right back atcha tomorrow!
Happy Scrapping!
