Friends Furever Blog Hop! :)

Good morning! 
Welcome to the "Friends Furever" blog hop :)

If you are coming from Sue's blog, you are in the right spot! If you are just stopping by my blog today, you'll want to go to Suzanne's blog to start from the beginning.. or here is this hop order in case you get lost.
Suzanne - Scrap With Suzy
Abby - Midwest Memories - You're here!

You don't want to miss the "furry" projects we have for you, as well as chances to win some awesome blog candy! 

There are 7 of us participating in the hop; we are all online scrapbooking friends from the Yahoo group Scrappin N Chattin. SnC is an email forum where we share our love for this hobby, as well as everyday life. Don't be intimidated by the amount of emails that come through our message boards - there are a lot of fun activities, challenges, and prizes - to jumpstart your creativity and keep your scrappin' goals.

I host 2 activities at SnC.. The Monthly Layout Contest (MLC) and the SC'12 Layouts and Cards (which Sue just told you about!). The MLC, like all the other activities, is a lot of fun. I provide our group with a layout sketch to draw inspiration from and also I provide a recipe to follow. The recipe usually consists of adding a color, technique, pattern, and/or embellishment. It's really cool to see how everyone uses the same sketch/recipe but yet has such different and unique layouts :)

Fun right? You can visit our SnC homepage here and join in if you'd like. We love meeting new people!  We also love blog hopping and sharing inspiration we find around the web! For today's hop, we each created a "furry" project.

I have 2 pets :)
A 6 y/o calico cat, Logan (who we call Logie) and a 3 y/o beagle/basset hound, Cooper. For my hop project, I created this layout featuring Logan and used my 3 Bugs in a Rug "Frisky" Caboodle kit.

Not sure if you can see it or not.. but the white cardstock has "k-i-t-t-y" letters added :)

I love this "Frisky" paper collection! So fun and colorful :)

Also, here are a couple layouts I created in the past that feature my Cooper..

It wouldn't be a blog hop without CANDY! ;)
I'm giving away a 3 Bugs in a Rug "Frisky" Caboodle kit.. the same kit I used for my Logan layout :)

Just become a follower and comment for your chance to win :) You do not have to join SNC to qualify. Just follow and comment, that's all :) Blog candy winners will be announced Thursday.

I'm the last stop in the hop :) 
Hope you enjoyed all the furry projects, blog candy and hopping along to learn about SnC :) 
Hope you'll join us at SnC!
