Exquisite Embellishments blog hop event!



Good morning!

I'm honored (and a bit excited!) to join in a special blog hop event showcasing a brand new idea book called Exquisite Embellishments available now through Annie's Attic that I am thrilled to have 2 projects of my own in the book!  Keri Sereika has worked her magic once again and brought together an amazing group of designers for her 2nd book and I was floored when she included me in the group!  What a thrill!

If you've arrived on my blog from the amazing Melissa's blog, you are right on track for today's hop.  If not, please take a moment and start at Keri's blog and stop by each designer's blogs to not only be inspired but also to leave comments along the way so you can be entered to win a copy of Exquisite Embellishments for yourself!  I just receive my copy in the mail yesterday and I have to say that Keri has outdone herself with choosing the projects to be included.  I love all the tutorials she included on how to make your own embellishments like the ones shown in the projects in the book!

Here's one of my cards in the book using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Peace of God stamp set along with some patterned papers from Echo Park, Copic markers and Xpress it paper from Copic, dies from Spellbinder and flower die from My Favorite Things:


Next on the hop is my friend Tami!  The entire list of designers is below for your reference.  Please remember to leave a comment on the blogs you visit as Keri will choose 3 lucky people to win the Exquisite Embellishment book for free!  Comments are welcome from today until Monday, May 8 and then on Tuesday, Keri will announce the winners on her blog post.

Good luck and happy hopping!
