Pause Dream Enjoy's 10th Birthday Blog Hop!!


Today is Pause Dream Enjoy's 10th Birthday!!  It is the blog of my dear friend Janis.  She was one of the first people I "met" in the blog world, and has been such a source of support through good and bad times, not to mention a crafty inspiration.  I was so honoured to be asked to participate in today's hop!

If you are here from Lisa's Blog , then you are in the right place!  If you just happened on my post, then you should be sure to go back to the beginning, and start with the honouree herself, Miss Janis' blog.  There is also some blog candy at each stop, so be sure to check out all the projects!  Here is what I created:



Above is a quick walk through of my project.  There are a few pictures below.





I made a "Flip Up Folio" following a tutorial from Frances Long, and using the "Making Waves" paper pack from CTMH.  This is such a quick and easy project, and it uses a surprisingly small amount of patterned paper.  I just LOVE how it turned out!

Now, here is my giveaway!  It is the cute little "Mouse Set 1" from Victorine Originals.  Be sure to comment on all 10 posts, and follow everyone's blog for a chance to win!  USA address only.




The next stop on today's hop is the amazing and talented Migdalia.  I have included a list of all the talented ladies in this crop, so you can be sure to stop and be inspired by each of them!
