You Are So Precious To Me - Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop plus GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to the Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog! I hope you're enjoying the hop so far! If you've arrived here from the very talented Wendi you're in the right place! If not, you may want to go to the start of the hop: Juliana Michaels.

This is only the second time I'm joining in the "Scrapping Our Stash" blog hop and I really love it! I'm finally getting to use some of that huge stash of mine!

Here's what I created for today's hop, using the Cienna collection from Elle's Studio. When I bought this collection I loved it so much that I didn't want to use it, but now I've finally taken the step and pulled it out I kind of went overboard, lol. But, hey if I have to use my stash then nothing will stop me! Let me show you what I'm talking about ....

I love the result, but have to admit that because of all the cards/tickets/die-cuts etc. I used, I wouldn't be suprised if you can't find the photos anymore!

Here are a few close-ups:


And just because I love giveaways I'm giving away the Echo Park Designer Die & Stamp Set "Little Lady":

To enter just leave a comment and become a follower of my blog, or let me know that you are already following.

You've just reached the end of the hop and I hope you had fun hopping along! In case you're in doubt whether or not you've visited everyone's blogs, here's the entire blog hop list once more:

  8. You don't have to worry about the picture.
    It pops off the page. Love all of the embellishments.
    they don't detract from the page. I get aggravated
    when there are all kinds of flowers that overpower
    the picture because of their depth.
    Great page.
    thanks for sharing.

    elephants. thanks.

  9. I have become a follower, you have some really great ideas. Love the layout, and yes like you I buy something I love so much I really don't want to use it. However, when I do I am happy because others get to see it then when they look at my albums. Great use.
    God Bless,
