My Favorite Things Blog Hop

Hi ya'll, welcome to the My Favorite Things Blog Hop hosted by Krystal at . If you came here from Cherie's blog, then you are in the right place. If you would like to start from the beginning, please hop on over to Krystal's and start there!

Krystal is turning 37 on Monday, March 28th so she thought it would be fun to host a blog hop listing some of our favorite things. I really wanted to do this hop with her because my birthday is on Tuesday, March 29th! How cool is that!?
So here are a few of my favorite things that I have made...

First we have this adorable frog. There are a few reasons why I love him so much. The colors - the blue, green and kraft are just awesome. The other reason is that he is on an action wobble. It just makes me smile when he wobbles!

This one is one of the first cards that I made with my Imagine. It took me quite a while to get it done, but the end result was worth it.

I made this for a Cricut Circle challenge. It was also my first home decor project. The colors are just so pretty in person. The paper was by Sassafras Lasss Indie Girl.

Let me just start by saying that my daughter hates this card. I honestly don't know why I like it so much. Maybe I have a secret thing for rainbows. Or maybe it's just because I love Basic Grey paper and was so happy to finally use some instead of just hoarding it!

I made these last fall for a friend at work. And obviously they are my favorites because I am a South Louisiana girl! They are also my first comissioned cards. Someone actually paid me to make these for them!! LOL

This paper is from the first monthly scrapbook kit that I joined last year. In the kit were the flowers, buttons and the pretty stick pins that are all the rage right now. This was definitely stepping outside my comfort zone to use these items and make it pretty and flowery. I must say, I really liked the end result. And now I use buttons and flowers on lots if things.

Well there you have it - some of my favorite things that I have made over the past 6 or 7 months. Surfing blogs, entering challenges, etc has really helped me to expand the way I scrapbook and make cards. I hope I didn't bore you with so many projects. Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday Krystal!
