you're SO thoughtful...

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop!!!
{it officially starts at 5 am PST}

You should have arrived here from one of our fabbie August Guest Designer's blog, Maureen Plut:


If not, you'll want to start at the Skipping Stones Design blog so that you don't miss a thing!

Check out the wonderful sketch by our August Guest Sketch Artist, Teri Anderson:


{{chuckling}}...I thought I memorized this sketch...more on that in a smidge.

Today, we're featuring the August release, Everyday Blessings:


So, remember I just said that I 'thought' I memorized the sketch?  Well, I may have been a little too gung-ho on my crafting...LOL....you can kinda see the sketch, right?


Good Grief, I was a snipping fool...had so much fun finding pieces to cut out of some fabulous Webster's Pages that Sherry RAK'd me.  See that Skipping Stones bird?  It has been embossed with Black Zing!

Now hop on over to another one of our most creative August Guest Designers {and a fab bloggie friend of mine}....Karen Baker:  The Bald Dragonfly

On my bloggie break...will be back next Monday for the EAD Designs Blog Hop!
