2nd "Un-official" Crop Chocolate Blog Hop

Hello ladies!  And maybe some gentlemen, too. 

If you've stumbled onto my blog randomly and want to get in on the action, please start here.  

Today, I've got a great little LO that I did of my daughter and her Grampa enjoying their "o's" for breakfast. 


I used my new Elegant Edges Cricut cart for the cool little loopy border.  I used a sketch from PageMaps.com as well for the inspiration.

Now, for the fun part.  You need to hop on over to Heather's Blog and see what good stuff she's got scrapped up for you. 

Everyone will have until 8am MDT on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 to comment. 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. {http://echoparkpaper.com/}). To be eligible to win on the 2nd Unofficial Crop Chocolate Blog Hop, you need to comment on each blog along the hop and be able to receive packages (no post office boxes). It is open worldwide. The winners will be selected via random.org and announced at http://centralnyscrapper.wordpress.com/ on Wednesday, March 28.

Happy Hopping!!

    1. Polly - I just saw on CC about your new blog and when I went there saw this link and that we were told somewhere (?) to come here to comment on your project.

      I LOVE your basket and how you used your punches for the eggs and everything. This is definitely going into my "Have to do" pile . . . I've been trying to come up with a "new" idea for Easter baskets for nieces and nephews and for May Day baskets. So THANK YOU for the inspiration!

  48. Hi Amber! You do such nice work, of course it helps to have such a beautiful subject - yes her Grandpa is good looking too, but he's not who I was referring to!!...
    I tried to comment @ pazas productions, but she's still having trouble, so I couldn't leave one there - too bad because I would have told her how impressed I am with her basket & eggs -beautiful!
    I came over from CC to hop the blogs!
