Sticking Around Blog Hop (With Blog Candy!!)


Hey scrapper friends!!!  Welcome to the Sticking Around Blog Hop!!  This is a super-cool concept for a different kind of hop. We're keeping it small...only five blogs total, so that you can spend a little time at each one.  Here's the idea:  Most of today's participants are newer bloggers with young blogs. Instead of each of us posting a specific themed project, we will simply ask you to come and take a look around our blogs, peek into a few posts, find your favorite, and leave a comment letting us know which post you liked and why. Any helpful words of wisdom on these new blogger's journeys would be just AWESOME too! Even though I've been doing my blog for almost a year, I would still love to know what you love, what you hate (be gentle!) and what you would like to see out of me.

So please, go take a look around my blog, and then come back to this post and let me know what your favorite post or idea was that you found.  One of my commenting followers will win the prize package shown above.  It includes a 7 Gypsies 6x6 paper pack, 4 yards of really cute ribbon, a roll of my favorite Smash washi tape, a Cuttlebug die, and some sapphire blue bling!  I only ask that you have a US or Canadian mailing address, since the US Post Office doesn't seem to believe in cheap postage rates to other parts of the world!

I'll count all comments made through midnight (Pacific time) Sunday night April 29th.  Only one comment per follower will count, so you don't need to leave lots of different ones!!

You're at the start of our hop now.  From here, the rest of your journey includes:

Cissy and Fran - http://cissyandfranshow.blogspot.com
Corrinne - http://tuesdayalchemy.blogspot.com
Lisa - http://scrappydistractions.blogspot.com
Rebekah - http://tanglestreasures.blogspot.com/

Please enjoy their blogs and consider becoming a follower so you can partake in their creativity, wisdom, and their blog candy!!!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!!!

Good morning, Amy!

Yep, I'm awake at 5AM - Are you? I do need some more coffee. I'll be working early this coming up week, so I definitely need to get the practice in.

I'm excited to join in the blog hop - We are going to have a fun day!

Happiness,

Hello!! I am here blog hopping on a rainy Saturday. The project that I thought was really cute was the gift box for the lift ticket that you and your daughter made.

Thanks so much for the chance at winning some goodies!!

Loving the blog hop. Came here the other day for WOYWW so I am familiar with your lovely blog. I think my favourite of your posts is the sweet pink card that you showed <a href="http://scrapthissavethat.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/crafters-companion-something-sweet.htmlhere</a> What a shame I live in the UK so wouldn't be able to win the fab goodies that you are giving away x
