The Craft's Meow Blog Hop!




Hello and Welcome to The Craft's Meow New Release Blog Hop!

the craft's meow.

You should have arrived here from The Craft's Meow blog!  

Blogger has been causing problems for some of our
designers all week long so you may come across a few
of our designer's blogs that do not appear updated
with today's blog hop post.
If that happens, please refer to the hop order at the end of
my post or on The Craft's Meow Store Blog
to continue on, but make sure you plan to check back
on the other blogs because you'll need to leave a comment
on each blog in order to win our BIG PRIZE!'

I decided to feature a layout today...I try to do a non-card project for blog hop days.




For those of you that have been following me awhile...what looks different?  Yup, I'm finally jumping on the splattering train...LOL.  


More about the pictures in a smidge....I wanted to share with you the 2 new The Craft's Meow sets that I used on my layout:

stamp illustrator:  Michelle Bertuzzi


I paper pieced that floral bouquet.

stamp illustrator:  Jenny Suchins


Love this journaling set...used the notebook paper, the sentiment and the date label.

Aren't they wonderful?  

Seriously, I'm so very fortunate to be a part of this magnificent team!

I wanted to tell you a little background on the picture of my daughter.  She recently turned 17 **sigh** and just got her drivers license yesterday **double sigh**.  Every year I have taken the kids to get their pictures professionally taken for their birthday.  This year I've decided to give the kids a try...so the boy took the girl's picture...I love this pic of her!!!

Readers will be eligible to win all 6 new sets from TCM.
To be eligible, they will need to visit & comment on each blog on the hopThe deadline to comment is 9:00pm PDT, Monday, April 23rd.
