Lovebug Blog Hop Time...Woohoo!!!!!!!



Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! This is the first
of 12 months of inspiration, each to take place on the last Saturday of
every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking
place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the ispiration from our members.......or the prizes

Our theme for January is "Love is In The Air".

Now let me premise this by saying that I have known about this for weeks and it totally slipped my mind to do a project, and so I did what any resourceful mother who has 3 kids home today as it was a PD day for them...I put them to work.
Carly spent the afternoon downstairs in my scraproom with me and helped create these adorable little cards from my scraps. She did most of the work herself, with me doing the cutting for her and helping her out a bit along the way. I think she did a great job.


Her second project was this little coupon book she put together, not sure who she is giving it to. We simply cut the patterned paper down to size, punch a few holes and threaded ribbon through to hold them together. The coupons were created at DLTK's site, which is full of great little crafts and printables for the whole family, and they are free, so be sure to check them out.


So leave me a comment and I'll enter your name in a draw for a lovely rak, and don't forget to send your friends along too. If your friend leaves me a comment and tells me you sent them, I'll enter both of you in the draw twice. How cool is that, huh?


This blog hop will run from today, January 30th until February 6th. There will be a prize drawing on February 7th. Check the Lovebug Blog for more details!

> Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is to one of my favourite gals in the world, the most talented Margo. So head on over and prepare to be amazed.
