Blog Hop Winner!

Thank you to everyone for participating in our 3rd New Release blog hop!! I hope you enjoyed visiting all the Starlets blogs as much as I did! All the creations were fabulous! The Starlets try and keep their creations a secret so when I hop I’m seeing them for the first time and it’s always so much fun! Fantastic job ladies!

Also a big thanks to everyone for helping us spread the word by placing our blog hop blinkie on your blog – if you noticed the adorable blinkie stopped blinking yesterday it’s because all of you helped us reach our max bandwidth which is awesome because that means we has lots of people checking out the hop! Look for our super cute January blog hop blinkie soon! We’ve added more bandwidth so this time your blinkie will keep blinking – YAY!

Congratulations to our hop winner!!!

Please email me with your 6 new release stamp choices along with your mailing address – YAY!
My first scrapbook page!

Yep you read that right! I love stamping and card making but something I had never actually tried until now is scrapbooking! I had so much fun making this Halloween page for my Mom to add to her 2009 scrapbook. I used some new release stamps { Betsy, Lady Buggie} as well as some other fun YNS stamps from the Monkey Gone Bananas set, the Happy Halloween Fhiona set and the Trick or Treat Fhiona set.

Be sure to check back here tomorrow for YNS Challenge #6! I’m so excited to show everyone my card! It’s Starlet Kerri’s turn to host our challenge and she has an amazing sketch for you to try that you won’t want to miss!

Have a super day!

All the cute buggies and animals come with a funny little personality bio!

Here is Pete’s…

Crocodile Pete has a soft spot in his heart for hugs and enjoys roller blading in his spare time! “XO man” is his favorite saying!
