Made with Love Blog Hop!


Welcome welcome!!  What a fun post this is going to be!  I'm joining the rest of the 2012 Paper Crafts Gallery Idol girls on a very special Made with Love Blog Hop!  We are celebrating Valentine's Day today!  You should have arrived from Jennifer Ingle's blog!
You can see the entire list of participants HERE on our Facebook Event page!


Each of us has created a fun Valentine project to share with you and then you have the fun of hopping along the hop!  Guess what?  There are PRIZES......Lots and lots of prizes!  We have some AMAZING sponsors!!!

My project features goodies from both of the sponsors highlighted below.......Lil' Inker Designs and Timeless Twine!  I've used the Of the Heart Dies, Stitched Mats: Rectangles, and Strawberry Cupcake twine!  I know you are probably getting tired of me using these Stitched Mats as a frame but sorry......not going to stop!!  :)


BEMINE



One sponsor today is Lil' Inker Designs!  I am very blessed to be on this fabulous DT.....Laura is the sweetest person and someone I call a friend.  I truly LOVE her products and she has wonderful customer service!!  She is offering up TWO (2) $10 Gift Certificates AND a stamp prize pack!  So that means......THREE (3) of you will be winners from my blog!



Another sponsor is Timeless Twine!  I just recently joined the team over at Twineology as a Twine-ista and it's been soo much fun!  Twine galore and gorgeous beautiful twine colors!  Stacy is offering up a FULL spool of her Valentine twine:  Strawberry Cupcake just like what I used on my project today!


So to win, I would ♥♥♥ it if you became a follower of my blog!  However, I'm not requiring it....so you can just leave a comment below.  There is no word verification, etc.  :)  You have until 11:59 EST on Feb. 21st to enter!!
