Link with Love Blog Hop

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers "Linking with Love" Blog Hop!  We believe it is important to always give credit when it is due to another crafter.  For this unique hop all of our design team members used the same inspiration piece to create their project.  Each of them will make an example of themselves as to how to properly "Link with Love" and credit the inspiration.  We'll be running the hop thru Noon EST on Sunday - so you have plenty of time to get thru it!


Liz Qualman created this beautiful layout and we have all used it for inspiration.  Each of us will tell what part we took our inspiration from.  The whole hop will culminate at Liz's blog where she'll provide us with a new sketch for inspiration.

Here is my take on the sketch!


Link With Love


Liz's Sketch


I loved Liz's Sketch...I turned it on the side and put my photo up top and added my string of flowers, on the bottom.  I love how she hand stitched her's, so I thought I would give it a try.  Love the look!  Also added a few tags to the side!  The gorgeous paper from MME's Miss Caroline already had the frame like her sketch...it all came together perfectly!


Many of the designers are providing prizes at their stop and Practical Scrappers is providing a prize for one person who becomes a follower at each stop (for all the details head over to Practical Scrappers).


Jenny Evans (you should have arrived from here)
Cathy Harper (you are here)
Caz Hancock (now go here)



I have a RAK to give a way...to qualify to win it...you must become a follower of all of the designers blogs and Practical Scrappers Blog.


 Leave a comment telling me who your favorite paper company is right now.
I will be giving a way an an entire Collection Pack and 12x12 chipboard to match from a leader in the industry! 
Super fun!
I will post the winner here Tuesday, so check back!


Now off you go to
Caz's Blog

Girl vs. Scrap

Sharing a super fun challenge with you for the month of March!  Just for entering you get free digi stuff, too!
Here's the Challenge!


And here is my take!


Love this photo of Kelly & Jay with Kelly's baby..her super fun green Jeep.
I didn't want the layout to be super green for St. Patrick's Day and all that...but it had have green for the challenge...so here and there you will find bits of green.  
Luck Schmuck...these two were meant to be together!
