Bitten by the Love Bug Blog hop!!** GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

Welcome to you had me at scrap, and the "Bitten By The LOVE BUG" Blog Hop! Im so excited to get to hop- this is my first ever, Im so glad you are here!

If you've come from visiting Erika- at http://crucutlovel.blogspot.com/ at , you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com/ and start at the beginning. We would love to share a few projects and ideas with a valentine theme with you!
Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!

Here are my projects...the first is a little hanging I made for Valentines Day. Its my two youngest this summer at the park. They hold hands every where. Even in the car, its so cute to see them in their matching little car seats holding hands! I wanted to remember this time when they are still young and like each other, I'm sure as they get older sibling rivalry will rear its ugly head!

I also made a lay out, have I mentioned how much I love this Owl punch? I cut out the background paper and layered it onto a solid card stock, I inked the edges with tea stain from Tim Holts, and smooched over that. I used Classic Cricut font and welded my letters on my gypsy. "I love you -THIS much" is some thing my grandpa used to do to me when I was little- now I say it to my kids.







SO go have fun on the hop! Next stop...Lisa's blog, you can find her here at http://www.lisa-craft-blog.blogspot.com/
Please stop by her blog, tell her I said HI- she has some crafty stuff too!
