Good morning everyone! I hope everyone survived Halloween. I've got some cuuute pictures for the boys that I will share later. I was very pleased with the way the costumes turned out - especially Nate and Will's. Part of their "cuteness" just lies in the fact that there are 2 of them. People (myself included) just can't help it. Anyway, on to crafty business...
Today is the beginning of CropStop's Grand Opening Celebration called A Walk in the Garden. CropStop is a great online store that offers quite the variety of products, from paper kits, all sorts of Die Cut machines, to embellishments. Check out the store, but make sure you don't spend too much time shopping because this is your chance to win lots of great prizes all weekend long.
One thing that you will have to do if you haven't already is register on the CropStop message board and the gallery. This will direct you to the where's, why's, and how's to go about increasing your chances of winning.
Today is the First Bouquet Blog Hop! If you are looking at my blog right now, you have either already visited the necessary blogs before me and are looking for your last "collection" or you are visiting and realized that something fun is going on. If I'm the last stop, then head back to CropStop for even more fun and if you are the latter, then head straight over to CropStop anyway to get all the directions and details as to how to start your collection.
So without further ado, my item to complete your crafty bouquet are BUTTONS! Who doesn't love buttons? To celebrate how fun buttons are I made a little card just because. I was lucky enough to pick up a whole bunch of Daisy D's matching buttons, flowers, and ribbon at my local scrapbooking store - Treasury of Memories. Each container was only $2 each. The paper, and sentiment are Close to my Heart products.
Thanks so much for hopping on by! I will have another segment of the fun and games to be had for the Grand Opening here tomorrow. Hint - its a challenge - but easy :).
