Winner of Love Struck Blog Candy

Hello and good Tuesday to you all,

First and most important, thank you so much for hopping along in this hop and leaving me a comment. Your comments are greatly appreciated, especially since everyone's lives are so very busy and to take the time is really very sweet. I enjoyed each and everyone of your comments. I also enjoyed seeing the fantastic work done by all the participants in the hop. A big thank you for Lissa for hosting it and Zenita for the help she gave me getting my post up and running.

I waited until today to do the drawing for the Blog Candy, giving those people who work on Sunday to have a chance to win. Well this morning my teenage daughter pulled a name out of a paper bag. She was a bit grumpy at 6am, but it is a school day and well she is grumpy most mornings she has to get up.

So without further hesitation, the winner is:

I love all the colors and the bling! I just became a new follower though e-mail.

So if you will please email me your address to creationswithkathryn@yahoo.com, I will get this in the mail to you.

I truly look forward to the next hop and seeing all the wonder comments and also the creations of the other participants.

God Bless each one of you,


PS: if you would like to order any Stampin' Up products, my daughter is a consultant and her site is http://creationswithkathryn.stampinup.net.

Love Struck Blog Hop

Are you Love Struck by someone that you never thought would enter your life, you boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, son or daughter? Maybe even your pet!
Well here we are again for another Krazy Crafting Crew blog hop, Lissa Marie at "So Many Crafts, So Little time" will be your host today if you would like to start there, but since you are here... let's have some fun!
If you have never hopped before it is fun and inspiring, grab your favorite drink and stay awhile for these inspirational valentine projects that are linked one after another. Lissa Marie has provided a layout sketch and a card sketch for the team to go with, and have them show you their take on how they will interprate this piece of art. We only have to do one or the other. Stick around for the blog candy that Lissa is giving away for those who have hopped by. Here is the sketches courtousy to Google on the layout and a sketch Lissa reinterpretated the scraplift from card she saw on Google.. oh yes, she is a scraplifter!


Here is my take of the layout sketch that was provided. Now this isn't my regular style, as I put way more bling than I would have normally.

I know I kinda changed the makeup of the sketch a tiny bit, but I wanted 2 large photos for this layout. I just can't seem to leave things as they are suppose to be. I used Stampin' Up paper pack "More Amore" it is a retired line, but I do love the papers. I used Real Red CS for the background with Pool Party, Pretty in Pink (retired), Primrose Petal, Very Vanilla CS. Used Large Pearls that are also Stampin' Up. I did use a bunch of gems and brads that I had in my stash of stuff that I was going to get rid of.

This is the header of the layout and I used pink and pewter heart brad and heart gems for the banners using the White Bakers Twine from Stampin' Up.

The Title is a Thinlit from Stampin' UP. I thought that this simple title was best for this busy layout.

These extra words are framelits from Stampin' Up and I do think they are so cute. Yes these are to be used with cards, but I love to try and combine my tools and supplies.

These 3 hearts are what I am using as Journal spots for this layout. I am figuring that the pictures will tell my story, so I only need basic info in my journaling with this layout.

I am giving away a brand new stamp set called "That's the Ticket" from Stampin' Up. To be in the drawing for this you need to follow my blog and leave me a comment on what you think of my take on the sketch. (this is a new stamp clear mount stamp set never opened)

Hope you have a blessed Sunday and to continue on the hop please go to Zenita blog.
