Spring Blog Hop

Hi everyone, Happy Friday!!  Welcome to the Spring Blog Hop, featuring artists from the Cut It Up and Die Cuttin Divas Design Teams.

If you are here from the amazing Gerda's Blog, then you are in the right place!  Let me share what I created:

Here is a walk through of my project:  

Mini Albums are one of my favorite crafts to create!  I find them so therapeutic.  This time, I used some die cuts to enhance the decorating.  The title is from Gypsy Wanderings and the frame is from Elegant Edges.  I also used some dies from Tim Holtz and  Bo Bunny, that I show you in the YouTube video.

The gorgeous paper is from PhotoPlay.  It's bright colours are a little outside the box for me, but I love the final result!

We are VERY excited to have some sponsors, who are offering some fabulous prizes!!  To be eligible to win one of the prizes, be sure to follow each of the participants blogs, and leave a comment for everyone (don't forget to follow and leave some love for Cuttin Up too).  Prize winners will be picked on April 17th, and announced on Cuttin Up!  Here are our sponsors: 

Prize: $10 worth of images from the store (digital papers not included)

Pink and Main
Prize: $20 store credit

Decosse Dynamite Doodles 
Prize: Winner’s choice of ONE of the four options offered by DDD

Next up is Katrina, and the complete list of crafters in today's hop is below, just in case you get lost.
