Spring Banner

In the last week and a half, the weather in Northern Michigan has greatly improved.  The sun has been shining (a little) and the temperature outside has been around 35-40 degrees.  It makes me wish for Spring Break where I can go somewhere warm and relax a bit.  So with that thought in mind, I decided to make a Spring Themed banner for my scraproom.  Check it out and I hope it inspires you to "Think Spring!"

CUC's Blog Hop

Welcome to your 3rd stop on the “Stirrin' Up a Li'l Love at Cookin' Up Creations” Blog Hop! If you are following the links from the beginning of the hop, you should have come from Jenny's Blog . If not, and you wish to participate in the blog hop, please start at the Cookin' Up Creations Blog.

Today, I am excited to share my Hugs and Kisses Game with you, made especially for this blog hop.  I was inspired to make this project by the X's and O's that of course denote Hugs and Kisses for Valentines day.  I wanted to create a portable game for my kids to play (shockingly everyone still gets into this game when we are at a restaurant) and I wanted something that would fit into Dd's purse when we travel or go out.

So I found a small tin that housed 12 round smaller tins.  I filled each smaller tin with flowers, glitter, and other pink embellishments.  Then I glued the lids on tight and used some Making Memories  rub-ons to create the Hugs and Kisses.  I decorated the outside with some paper scraps, Making Memories Valentine's signage, some lace and gem trim and voila!  I hope that it inspires you to create something fabulous!

Your next stop on the blog hop will be Tamara's Blog.   Be sure to leave a comment here, and on each stop on the blog hop. Then, make sure you finish up at the Cookin' Up Creations forum and post that you have completed the hop. Your name will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous prize! We're also hosting a weekend crop from Friday, February 4 through Sunday, February 6 on the forum – hope you will join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

In addition to the blog hop prize, I am also offering a RAK of my own! To be entered into my drawing, just become a follower of this blog AND leave me a comment. Hopefully then you will come back and visit me again!  The winner's name will be drawn on February 7th and posted here on the blog.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!
