Final Stop on the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop

Welcome to the final stop of the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop. We hope you have enjoyed the hop so far.

You should have arrived here from guest blogger Haf2scrap/Lucy. If you have just started hopping with us, please start at the blog of mommyx2, Crafty Love 4 My Twins. If you want to see the entire list of blogs on this hop, they are at Crafty Love 4 My Twins or on one of my earlier posts.

I was experimenting, trying to do something different, but I ran out of time. If I ever organize or co-organize a hop again, I’m going to start on a Monday so I have the weekend for trial and error. Since the idea I had in mind was not coming together quickly, I put it aside it for now and used the RCC44-Getting Sketchy with Sweet Stamp Shop sketch that caught my eye a couple of weeks ago for inspiration.

I also selected Echo Paper Paper products since they generously donated two prizes for this hop. I selected Victoria Gardens. I used the We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 Retro Scallop punch and Making Memories Slice Design Cutter with the hands free kit and Bravissimo! design card.

Without further ado, this is my layout:

(click on the layout for a larger image)

Thanks again for hopping with us. Don’t forget to comment on each blog to be eligible to win. We have two confirmed giveaways. One is a 12×12 Hello Spring Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park and another is a 12×12 Fourth Of July Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park (generously donated by Echo Park Paper Co.). To be eligible to win on the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop, you need to comment on each blog along the hop (except pollyzas, unfortunately we were not able to resolve the problems with leaving a comment) and be able to receive packages (no post office boxes). It is open worldwide. The winners will be selected via random.org. Everyone will have until 8am MDT on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 to comment.

Thanks to mommyx2 my co-organizer and to Amber to working with Echo Park Paper Co. so we could have prizes to giveaway (and to Jon and the entire group at Crop Chocolate for allowing Amber to assist us). Thank you to Echo Park Paper Co. for their generosity.

Don’t forget to check back here or on mommyx2’s blog, Crafty Love 4 My Twins, on Wednesday, March 28 to see if you are a lucky winner.

Unfortunately I was doing several administrative tasks related to the hop last evening and did not get an opportunity to work on my project. Therefore I do not have another sneak peek for you today. I hope we will have a fun, uneventful hop tomorrow and Saturday and that will make up for it.

I cannot believe the hop starts in less than 24 hours. If this is the first time you are learning of the hop, please start at the beginning, Crafty Love 4 My Twins.

We have two confirmed giveaways. One is a 12×12 Hello Spring Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park and another is a 12×12 Fourth Of July Mini Theme Kit by Echo Park (generously donated by Echo Park Paper Co.).

Some of the bloggers along the hop have mentioned that they plan to offer blog candy. Be sure to look for those announcements and follow the steps they would like you to do to be eligible for those prizes.

Finally, I would like everyone to know that the bloggers who shared projects with you (either on their own blog or as a guest blogger on another blog) are eligible to win prizes as long as they comment on each of the blogs along the hop (except their own of course).

I hope you will be able to hop with us.

2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop – 3rd sneak peek

March 21, 2012 Comments off

Here is my 3rd sneak peek:

 

sneak peek 3

I haven’t started using the Springtime paper yet as I need to work out the punching and measurements. I’m not sure I’m headed in the right direction. I’m not sure I like what I’ve come up with so far. I might just toss this attempt at a card and start fresh. What are your thoughts? Any construction criticism out there so I have a starting point when I get home tonight? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
