WELCOME TO THE BLOG HOP!!

Welcome to the Sistas Scrap Too! second blog hop! We had so much fun with our first hop that we decided to do a hop once a quarter. This is the hop for the first quarter of 2011 and we are glad you decided to join us! We have 13 designers working on our theme for this hop, which is none other than Valentine's Day. We've put a twist on it, asking the designers to use the colors red, black, and white in their designs. We can't wait to show you what we've come up with! Some of the Sistas went the traditional route and used traditional colors for their projects. What would craftin' be without creativity and diversity?! We know you'll enjoy what lies ahead on the hop route!!

Remember, start at the beginning of the hop and work your way through each blog. Please leave blog love (comments) along the way and become a follower of the blogs so that you can see the beautiful creations year round and not just when we have a hop! There are Sistas who are offering blog candy and you never know where you'll find some so be sure to visit each participating blog. Thank you for joining us for our 2011 SST! Valentine's Day Blog Hop! We hope you enjoy the creativity...

 I made a journal from a hardbound notebook I found in the WalMart clearance section. Gotta love the clearance aisles! I sanded the covers and using Modge-Podge attached the patterned paper. The paper is from My Mind's Eye. The bird and heart is grungeboard and the rest of the items are from my stash. A lot of it came from kits, which is why I can't give details on manufacturer's names.

Be sure to leave comments because  I will be giving away some blog candy!! I will post the winner on Monday afternoon. Thanks for stopping by!
