Thank You Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thank You blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Michele at Now Stamp This. If not, you may want to start the blog at the beginning and head over to Raven at Love 4 Stamps.  There are many talented ladies and you don't want to miss any of their projects!  Below is a list of all the blog participants in case you wish to revisit any of them or if you get lost along the way.








Zeni- http://www.scrappyzeni.blogspot.com/ ~ You are here!

This is my first ever blog hop and I'm so excited to be a part of it for a special reason. This blog hop is to thank and honor our friend Madeline from The Shabby Vanity for being the great designer that she is and helping some of us crafty ladies design our blogs.   In December, I decided to start my own blog to share my passion for crafting.  Since then I have a had a lot of fun with it and have learned not only about crafting but about maintaining a blog,not to mention make a few friends along the way.  When I heard about The Shabby Vanity, I thought it would be great to have my blog done professionally and with a style that represents me little more.  And here you have it!!! Madeline created an awesome blog for me and I just love my blogging experience now!  Thank you Madeline for your professionalism and your patience in dealing with me! :)

For my project I've created a shadowbox that I can place in my crafting area and reflects my blog in some way, I ran out of time and didn't get to the card, but Madeline you will be getting one!!!  I used Canvas Corp's black white mini dot reserve paper and used a jungle green ink from Ink Pad to give the white dots the green color and then sprayed with kiwi Perfect Pearls Mists.  I also used paper flowers from Creative Memories.  The Martha Stewart's small ribbon thread puncher helped for the threading of the ribbon through the bottom.  The cartridges used were Forever Young and Lyrical Letters.





Now for some blog candy!!!  Thank you Angie and Jackie from A Scrapbook Life for sponsoring my giveaway today.  One lucky winner will receive 10 sheets of Canvas Corp black and white cardstock in various designs.You can easily customize these papers to your project theme color by inking it with any ink pad. These can be purchased from A Scrapbook Life for .75 a sheet.  I love this cardstock, the quality is great and you can do lots with it!



All you have to do is be a follower on my blog and leave a comment on this post.  For an extra entry, you can grab my button and leave me a separate comment telling me you did so and your blog address (I will make sure to follow you as well!!).  I will pick a winner on Sunday January 30th, 2011.

Thanks for visiting.  Now you can head on over to our guest of honor's blog Madeline at The Shabby Vanity.  Have a beautiful day and God bless!
