Kimberly's Spring Fling Blogaversary Hop


Morning my dear blogger friends...

Welcome to "Kimberly's Blogaversary". Kimberly is tired of winter and thought it was time for a "spring fling"!!! She asked all us crafters to do something that reflects birth, which is what spring means to her, in pastel and floral colors!
We have a wonderful group of sponsors that want to have "Spring" too ..... Could we ask, that each of you take the time to stop and visit each one of the sponsors.  They have graciously donated their talent for this hop.

  1. Creative Kut ~ $10 gift Certificate (http://www.creativekuts.com/ )
  2. KaDoodle Bug Designs ~ $20 Gift Certificate (http://www.kadoodlebugdesigns.com/ )
  3. Mickie Burks Osman ~ a paper pack and some stamping goodies

  6. Scraptastical Kreations ~ $20 Gift Certificate (http://scraptasticalkreations.com/ ) 

There are a lot of great gardeners along the path, so this hop is two days, so sit back, relax and take your time browsing each garden. To be eligible for the blog candy, you must follow Kimberly’s blog.  Other bloggers may have additional requirements if they offer individual blog candy.
Please leave ME a comment (a must to show you followed the full hop) and I would appriciate more followers as well, but its not a must with the hop. 

In order to complete the hop you should have started at Kimberly's blog (http://scrappingrookie.blogspot.com/)and have followed the link till you came to me.. 

Kimerly says: "I can hardly believe I have been blogging and showcasing my crafts for a year now!!! I've grown just like spring and learned so much as I have traveled the crafting path.  I am sure you will be as impressed with the talent from these crafters as I am".

Here is my project for this hop:

So here is my project. I went for a scrappage, as I have a real passion for scrap, even though I tend to do more cards. The pictures in the LO is of my eldest daughter Emma. The pictures were taken on the day my son, Michael was born. She was playing im grandma's garden with her aunty, while I was. ermmm, busy elsewhere lol. As we live in Ireland, and it rains here most of the year, sunny pictures are few and far between, so although the picture is taken in July its some of the few sunny pictures we get each year.
For me, spring means "new beginnings" and for me the first sign of the new year is ALWAYS when I see the first daphodils popping up in the garden. And that was the inspiration for my LO, so hence the bright colours.

Now thats is from me. Time for you to leave me some love (to show you been here) and then off you hop...

Have a great hop, huge hugs, and THANK YOU for stopping by.
