Fri. June 24, 2011 CSS Alumni HOP

Boy, have we got another fun hop for you this time! If you arrived here from KAY's blog, you are in the right place.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, click HERE.

The details are:
Let's get wordy! Gina K. Designs is known for including some of the best quotes and sentiments in their sets. For this challenge use a sentiment or quote as the main focal point.

****** Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (June 28th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs, and the commenter will get a GKD stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!


My sentiment is from Tami's "Dreams" stamp set, which I framed with the oval from Melanie's "Branching Out" set. The rose is one that Cheri Weston sent to me- Thanks Cheri!



Now, it's time for you to visit JOY's BLOG and be amazed! She always has a beautiful creation to share!
Thanks for stopping by!
