Kimberly's Spring Things Anniversary Hop

If you happened here by chance, please head to Kim's for the beginning of the hop.


Welcome to Kim's Blogaversary. She is tired of winter and thought it was time for a "spring fling"!!! All she asked from the crafters was to do something that reflects birth, which is what spring means to her in pastel and floral colors!

We have a wonderful group of sponsors that want to have "Spring" too ..... I would ask that each of you take the time to stop and visit each one of the sponsors. They have graciously donated their talent for this hop.

Creative Kut ~ $10 gift Certificate (http://www.creativekuts.com/)
Melissa Deuss KaDoddle Bug ~ $20 Gift Certifiacate (http://www.kadoodlebugdesigns.com/)
Mickie Burks Osman ~ a paper pack and some stamping goodies
Lucy Kelleher ~ Close To My Heart ~ December Stamp of the Month (http://love2createitall.blogspot.com )
Nikki Schiltz Calmes ~ Paper Piecings by Nikki ~ $25 credit to Paper Peicings by Nikki (www.paperpiecingsbyNikki.com)
Scraptastical Kreations ~ $20 Gift Certificate (http://scraptasticalkreations.com/)

There are a lot of great gardeners along the path, so this hop is two days, so, so sit back, relax and take your time browsing each garden. To be eligible for the blog candy, you must follow Kimberly’s blog.

Other bloggers may have additional requirements if they offer individual blog candy.

Here is my project!

This was a request by a customer, she wanted a white tear bear in a dress holding a banner with her daughters name to put it on the front of her daughters lavender scrapbook.
I just love the way it came out as does she.
I used the the dress and scalloped banner patterns from Designs on Cloud 9
The butterfly is from the shapes library in SCAL2
and the Tear bear I used the acrylic patter & mulberry paper from The Beary Scrap.
Pretty Springy, right?
Thanks for Visiting!
Hugs, Staci

Welcome and thank you for joining us to celebrate the fairytale wedding of The Host of this hop Liz's daughter, Princess Heather. Today, January 28th, 2012, is her wedding day and while you are hopping she could be getting dressed, walking down the aisle, or already celebrating her new life with Prince Charming.

Most layouts you see in this hop are being put together into a wedding surprise scrapbook album for her daughter, a gift fitting of any young princess. You are going to be amazed at what creations these fabulous ladies have designed.

In order to be eligible for this blog candy, all that is required of you is to comment and follow each blog along the hop and to stop in at the facebook pages of the sponsors to thank them!

I hopped onto this wonderful hop as a fill in for someone who had to drop out last minute, so that is why my layout already has photos in it & will not be going to the bride... crafting community at it's finest; jumping in to lend a hand :0)

So here is my project I made as a gift for my Aunt, I put this layout into a shadow box for her to hang on a wall or put on a shelf.

I also wanted to share a wedding shower card I made for a niece of mine
