My Pink-alicious Blog Hop and **Giveaway Alert**


Hello and welcome to the My Pink-alicious blog hop! You are in for a real treat today! We have all been asked to make either a mini-album or a scrapbook page. Well, this is definitely a challenge for me! I thought for a second about doing a scrapbook page and then thought, "I have never done a mini album!" So, here is my VERY FIRST mini album! **Caution, picture heavy post!!!**

I spy with my little eye...... SIX uses of My Pink Stamper Stamps. There are two pictures that are close-ups of the stamps, but why don't you see if you can find them all? :) 

I decided to make it a mini calendar album. I didn't have the first idea about how to bind one and then I realized my YourStory is in the storage unit 2 hours away from the move! So luckily my friend June taught me how to do the accordion thing to make it work over Skype. Now, I didn't realize that so much of the accordion would show so I wish I hadn't used the green. But oh well, I love it anyway!

You should have gotten here from Kassidy's blog. If not, start HERE at My Pink Stamper's blog!

















I used My Pink Stamper's: Itty Bitty-licious™ all throughout this book! I LOVE the fact that these stamps are so small! They worked so well! Did you find all 6 of the stamps that I used? If you did, GO you!

Recipe:




Here is the order in case you get lost:

Courtney (Court's Crafts)<---You Are Here :)


The thing you can win today is..... 

The Twinery Sampler pack!
*photo taken from The Twinery*

The Twinery was so kind to send this to me for getting published with their twine! Since I already have a ton, I thought I would give it away to one of YOU! Leave a comment here to win! You do not have to be a follower. I will draw a winner in a week. If you want to win and you are international, I just request that you pay for a non-domestic shipping fee. It should be pretty inexpensive given that it's such a light package. :) 

Make sure you hop all the way through to My Pink Stamper's blog so that you can play along with the challenge! 

Now, don't forget to leave a comment for the giveaway and then hop on to Sharon's blog!

I love your calendar!! I've been known to jot down important things my kids have done on my calendar (with the intention of getting it into baby books for my 9, 6, and 3yr olds) but all I have is a stack of ugly calendars. I should make one of these and then I wouldn't have to transfer any information!
