Furever Friends *Blog Hop*!

Good morning! Welcome to the "Furever Friends" blog hop :)

If you are coming from Suzanne's blog you are in the right spot! If you are just stopping by my blog today, you'll want to go to go back to Suzanne's blog anyway because she starts our hop! Here's the hop order in case you get lost:

Suzanne - Scrap With Suzy
Kim - Me Ma Kim's Place  {that's me!}

You don't want to miss the "furry" projects we have for you, as well as chances to win some awesome blog candy! 

There are 7 of us participating in the hop; we are a all online scrapbooking friends from the Yahoo group Scrappin N Chattin. SnC is an email forum where we share our love for this hobby, as well as everyday life. Don't be intimidated by the amount of emails that come through our message boards - there are a lot of fun activities, challenges, and prizes - to jumpstart your creativity and keep your scrappin' goals.

One of the activities we started this year and try to schedule monthly - is the SNC crop! We have a private blog set up where we can chat with each other all weekend without clogging up the email boards :) We post little challenges for each other and give prizes, too. It really helps us motivate each other to make the most of our weekend scrappin! And it's fun too :)

You can visit our homepage here and join in if you'd like. We love meeting new people!  We also love blog hopping and sharing inspiration we find around the web! For today's hop, we each created a "furry" project.

I made this super cute layout with DCWV's "Pet Stack". 

It wouldn't be a blog hop without CANDY! ;) I have a package of goodies on the way to one lucky follower. Leave a comment below to enter to win! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today; hope you visit again soon. Blog candy winners will be announced Thursday. Your next stop on the hop is my good friend .... SANDI at Slightly Off Center! :)

What A Cute Girly Girl


Every month over at Scrappin-n-Chattin' Yahoo group, we have some AWESOME Challenges. This month one of the challenges is to make a layout without any right angles. So that made it an interesting challenge. We also have a monthly sketch challenge and Theresa makes some AWESOME Sketches every month.
So here is the sketch she made:

and my take, that I am linking up over at Lasting Memories for their Fancy Folds challenge:

a close-up of my folded flowers, I just started out with circles and folded then in. I used some thread and micro beads for the stamens of the flowers:

My  Mind's Eye Stella and Rose

The girls over at Scrappin-n-Chattin' will be hosting a BLOG HOP on June 11th, so PLEASE make sure you come back then to HOP along, there will be prizes to win at all the stops!!

Bubble Fun


I have been playing in my scrap room today and it has been SO MUCH FUN!! I've only accomplished this 2 page spread, but it's ALL GOOD!!

I used this sketch from Let's Scrap:

I'm also linking up over at Frosted Designs for their PUNCH Challenge as my circles are from punches, and at Unique Crafters for their BUTTON Challenge.
and here is my take:

A close-up of the left side:

A close-up of the right side:

A close-up to show my buttons they are clear to resemble bubbles, but didn't quite show up like I wanted, I pop dotted some of my circles:
A close-up of my Sun Rays, I used micro beads and glued them down:

I used Echo Park Hello Summer
