My Pink-alicious Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Pink-alicious Blog Hop!!! You should have gotten here from my good friend Cristi's blog! If not, start here at My Pink Stamper's blog to join in the fun and see what prizes you can win along the hop! 

Well I did a layout for the last My Pink Designer showcase and Lisa from Lisa's Creative Niche left me a really nice comment and encouragement to keep scrapbooking! It meant a lot to me and I marched into my craft room to make another! Lisa wasn't the only one. I received a lot of wonderful encouragement from a bunch of you. Thank you SO much!!! 

This week we were challenged to make something that had to do with St. Patricks' Day, Cricut, My Pink Stamper Stamps and to "think green!" My husband Hans is going to be running his first 5K on St. Patrick's Day with our friend Josh Wilson. He has been diligently training for it and I am SO proud! 

Although, I must say... I do find it a tad bit rude that my already skinny-as-a-twig husband is getting skinner every day from training and I am getting larger from pregnancy! How is that fair!?! ;) 

Anyway, I'll be putting in the pictures. The top will be of him with his number. The middle will be of him running and the last one will be him with Josh... probably holding a beer. :) The journaling on the card and shamrock will have to wait for the time that he finished in and the place. I am so excited!

I have to say that I LOVE the font My Pink Stamper chose for this sentiment. Perfect!





I based my layout on this sketch HERE. The challenge is expired, but I still liked it! :)

Now make sure to hop back to the My Pink Stamper blog at the end so that you can join in the challenge and the fun! But for the moment, hop along to Chelle's blog!
