Be Thankful Blog Hop

Welcome to the Be Thankful Blog Hop!! I am so glad you are joining us!!

We have a fantastic lineup for you today, so grab your coffee–and hop to be inspired, hop to learn and hop to win πŸ™‚ Afterall, what would the weekend be without a hop?

As, I worked on this blog hop- I began to think of all the things I have to be grateful for–

  • I have an amazing, supporting husband- known as Mr. Pink Cricut. Β He does his best to keep up with me, and I love him for supporting my crazy-crafting habit πŸ˜‰
  • I have 2 healthy, wonderful children that bring a smile to my face every single day. Β  Motherhood is the most difficult job in the world–but the best one I could ever have!
  • I am thankful for loving, sweet puppies that complete our family
  • Awesome scrapbooking friends, from all over the world!

Today, I did a couple of projects for you–one with a video πŸ™‚

Here is the next one πŸ™‚


9 12×2.5 inches paper strips (in 3 patterns/colors)
2 brads
2 leaves cut out of your favorite Cricut Cartridge
Floral wire
Sentiment Tag

punch a hole in the ends of all the strips (one in each side), put a brad through all holes on one side and then the other. Β Spread the strips apart, forming the pumpking. Β Attach the leaves w/ floral wire- leaving the excess as pumpkin tendrils πŸ™‚

Now, onto the BLOG CANDY!!

I will be giving away 2 prizes:

The first prize is the new cartridge, “Wrap it Up.” and this person will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs in the hop!

wrap it up binder

and secondly– I will be giving away the Pink by Design Tags & Treats stamp set

All you have to do to be entered for this is be a follower, and leave a comment telling me something you are thankful for!

Also, don’t forget there is a Pink by Design Sale going on this weekend, to celebrate our Blog Hop!! πŸ™‚

Check it out HERE!

Here is the rest of the lineup and your map through the HOP!
