Spring Forward Blog Hop

Welcome to the Spring Forward Blog Hop, jointly hosted by Celeste at Touched by a Butterfly and myself here at Notes from the Scrapbooklady. Thanks for stopping in to see the great spring themed projects offered by the talented ladies at each of the blog stops.

This blog hop will offer one lucky blog hopper a TWO PART blog candy. Celeste and I have both put together prize packages and we will each mail our prize package to the ONE LUCKY WINNER! The rules are pretty simple - visit each participating blog and leave a comment - a winner will be chosen from among all comments left at Notes from the Scrapbooklady blog and then we will verify that the winner has visited and commented on each blog. The winner will be posted at both Notes from the Scrapbooklady and Touched by a Butterfly and will have one week to contact Lora or Celeste with a mailing address for their prize packages.

Some of the participants may also be offering their own individual blog candy - please note their terms and conditions which may vary from the main blog hop rules.

So, for my project, I decided to create a mini butterfly book/card. The scut2 file for using in SCAL2 is available for download at the link below the project pictures - this file will only be available for the duration of the blog hop. The file includes both front and back versions of each page as well as the detail cut butterflies to add for embellishments. I chose to make my project as a mini card to honor my good friend and co-hostess of this blog hop - Celeste at Touched by a Butterfly. Celeste this card will be on it's way to you this weekend! Without further ado, here are the pics of my project - The papers are from the SEI Poppy Paper Pad:

Mini Book Files no longer available for download - Offered only for duration of Blog Hop.

Here's a picture of my Blog Candy package that will be awarded jointly with a prize package from Celeste to ONE participant who visits and comments on every blog. See details on prize give away above.

Now it's time to get hopping! Here's the complete list for you in case you need to refer back to it.

Lora and Celeste,
I stopped by Scrapping with Tina and there isn't any Blog Hop listed there but, I still posted a comment on her last blog post. I will try stopping back there just in case that she thought it was on Sat and Sun and not today also. The blog hop was great. I just wanted to let you know everyone did a wonderful job.
Thanks again,

Debi_Omnistitch said...

Thank you for everything, as a beginner you have really got me inspired. I also can't believe that Cricut is upset with the 3rd party software providers. They could have written good software for their machine, but chose not to.

Karen said...

Lovely butterflies & mini. Nice Job.

Happy Blogging,
