Practical Scrappers Blog Hop

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for the Practical Scrappers blog hop! For my Love project I decided to do a layout of my parents. Yes I went a little crazy with the flowers - but I did so with reason. I put 32 flowers on to represent the 32 years they've been married! To make my circle - I used a chipboard circle from CTMH and attached lace cardstock behind it. I then trimmed off the excess.

This is the second stop on the blog hop - if you have just started here you should head back to Practical Scrappers to enter for their prize too!

The prize I am giving away is a 3 pack of stickles! I chose that because stickles are pretty much my favorite product right now! To enter to win - become a follower and leave a comment on this post. I can only ship within the United States. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

The next stop on the blog hop is Kerri's blog - Have fun!
